Comprehensive wine list and excellent Spanish food

This little place never disappoints. Surprisingly, it's found behind the bus station in Fuengirola, with a lovely wood-panelled interior, hanging hams and stacked bottles of wine. Emphasis on quality. Price is proportionate.

Located just behind the bus station El Toston is a classic Spanish establishment. Whether great and very original tapas, a la carte or great wines you'll find it all here in a fairly rustic setting.

Have not been back this year, but this is the best tapas restaurant in town. Evening meal is no better than others, but for lunch simply outstanding.

We have visited El Toston many times but this is the first time we have reviewed it. For us, the best fillet steak on the Costa del Sol. A little theatre around the Gin & Tonics served over dry ice, a light but delicious salmon canape followed by magnificent steak with fries and pepper source. Simple but superba and so... More

We visit this restaurant every time we come to Fuengirola. The food is fantastic, the beans with poached eggs, Aubergines in honey and sirloin on sizzling hotplate are recommended! The wine and food are top quality, waiters are attentive, and the bar has a great atmosphere. We can't fault this place!

We have been promising to visit El Toston over our many visits to the area but have never managed it until now. On this occasion we were taken by our parents to experience the excellent, authentic Spanish menu. We started with a bit of theatre in the wonderfully Spanish decked bar, we were treated to Gin & Tonics made with... More

We came here following a recommendation from a friend who spends half the year in Spain. The food was wonderful, service attentive but not over the top and we had the best Wine of the week. Good atmosphere too: all in all a great evening. Would strongly recommend a visit.

One of my favourite places to go for a choice of fab wine by the glass, you can all order a different one and try each others..........great tapas, more on the expensive side but worth it with the fabulous cheeses, jamones and embutidos! Try the Boar croquetas and the steaks to share as a tapa are out of this world!... More
