“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

My mom and I went there after we had traveled to the town to se the Oceanararium but we found out that the place we were looking for is in a more southern town. The food here is really good. I had my best Chicken burger here :D

“Friendly Welcome and Homemade Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

I was in the el toston on 19th June and also had a meal. Both my husband and I enjoyed what we had. We have been going to the bar for 5 years and know Alan and Gayle who we really like. Now they have moved on and Mel and Matt have taken over. They are very friendly and gave us a great welcome. We have been back a number of times and have enjoyed further meals. As for it being empty. El Cotillo itself is very quiet at this time of year. As for its cleanliness it is looking great, with a fresh new look. Good luck to you Mel.

“Bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

My partner and I called into el toston for a meal while on holiday in el cotillo on the 19 the June we ordered our meal and what a disappointment the food was disgusting I have been to the el toston when Alan and his wife had it and it was fantastic then what a shame that the bar as gone down they need to learn to cook it also did not look very clean the new owners are not the greatest people to run this type of bar you will only go once and the. Never again. We went passed the bar many times after and it was empty I think this speaks for itself

We are unsure as to how to respond to this review as it is the complete polar-opposite of every review and comment we have received so far in the 3 months since taking the bar over. So we're not. Perhaps if you had spoken to us at the time your 'visit' could have been different.

“Excellent all round - highly recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

It's the first time we have visited El Toston since the new owners took over and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the staff/owners were so welcoming, and attentive throughout. The bar has great views over the old harbour. There are a few bars in this little nook and El Toston really deserves not to be overlooked.
