Friendly - welcoming Bar

Mel, Steve & Matt are always very welcoming and always greet you with a friendly smile. We have had some very memorable evenings in El Toston Bar and really looking forward to being back there in June 2015. Sunday lunches are very good and great value for money - well worth a visit

I first went here back in January 2006. Then, it was run by David and his wife. It was a good, well supported bar. On this visit, Steve another UK expat was at the helm. Nice guy, very friendly and very efficient. But something had been misplaced and El Toston had lost a bit of its sparkle. This bar is... More

This is a friendly bar run by a British family who have recently taken over from the previous owners. There is a fun live music night on Friday evenings, and while we were there, several top quality professional musicians on holiday in El Cotillo from Holland, Ireland and the UK joined in the music making. We also went there for... More

A really welcoming place with friendly owners. The food is lovely and home made. Prices are very good too. The cheapest price for a large beer I found in El Cotillo, just €2.80. The sort of bar where you feel at home as soon as you walk in.

Great spot right on the beach with great service, good prices and marvellous food. Really friendly staff, unlike some of the other more upmarket options at El Cotillo.

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
