Don't miss out when visiting El Cotillo this is the perfect place to have a home cooked meal and sit and watch the sun set. Thank you Mel, Steve and Matt, see you again in March, Gill & Brian @ treetops UK

Thanks Mel, Steve and Matt for a lovely lunch with delicious nut roast...veggie gravy and lots of great selection of veg and yorkshire pudding...a real treat! It's not always easy to find a good vegetarian option so I really appreciate that...a very friendly bar with lovely view and brilliant music nights...I will be back...Thanks Anna...

We travel to El Cotillo every January and always pay several visits to El Toston We were aware there were new owners and visited a Sunday afternoon to find them just closing up after 2pm. So we checked their opening hours board. We came back a Saturday night at 6.15pm (advertised as opening 5.30pm so a good margin of error)... More

Visited twice and was impressed at the friendliness of staff and clients. Regular live music - open Mic and singer song writers. Attracts wide range of nationalities. Didn't eat there so can't comment

We had beef burgers and french fries and loved it. The burgers were juicy and the fries were crispy. The right meal after surfing some big waves.

This Bar and restaurant is just around the corner from the Harbour and could be missed. We arrived late morning and had two of the breakfast options - both really good quality and cooked exactly as we requested. We were on a day visit from another part of the Island and could not stay for their evening meals which was... More

called in one evening to have a meal as we were running late. They serve food up to 9.30pm which was great for us that night. We had a curry and a lasagne - both were home made and very good and were served quickly. The new owners seem very hospitable although after serving us our food we didn't talk... More

This is our second visit this year and the new owners Matt, Mel & Steve are now making it their own, they are always very attentive and very obliging. Sampled Mel's special lasagne which we took away to share at a BBQ and it went down very nicely. They hold various quiz nights which are great fun, also open mic... More
