Great setting but have to say staff let the place down big time. Cannot understand the need to communicate with customers by means of signs! It's not exactly a big bar. If the bar or restaurant is closing would it be too difficult to tell the customers? can't understand why it closes for a couple of hours in the middle... More

We called here for an afternoon snack whilst enjoying a day in El Cotillo. This is a family run business and the son could have been a little more chatty but overall everything was fine. Meals looked good but we selected tuna sandwiches with and without mayo to suit our tastes! The restaurant is in a good spot and can... More

Ate here following reviews on tripadvisor but found it disappointingly ordinary. Surroundings are all a bit home spun. Unattractive plants and various artifacts of no particular theme around the restaurant and a very dirty cupboard in the corner do little to inspire. My wife chose the pulled pork burger and enjoyed it. It was nicely presented. I found the menu... More

There a a variety of lovely restaurants in El Cotillo, but sometimes you just want plain home cooked food and El Toston is just the place. We had burger and chips, REAL chips, not fries, followed by sticky toffee pudding and custard. Delicious. Service really good, and made to feel very welcome. Great location too, with good views over the... More

Went to il Cotillo for a day out & after wandering the little streets for a couple of hours stumbled on El Toston just set back from the harbour. It was the 'Hot Cross Bun' sign that caught our eye but we ordered a burger each & fries to share. Absolutely delicious and a great portion size served with a... More
