We had a day out at El Cotillo and were struggling to find a place to cater for our sons Gluten free condition when we happened on the El Tolston, the gentleman knew about what we needed and we were assured that he could provide us something for our little fussy eater. He was rewarded with a bowl of the... More

We are just finishing our break in El Cotillo and El Toston is the bar have we visited most often. They have Bock-Damm, (a very nice dark style lager/beer) on tap. This is fairly unusual in the UK, so a nice surprise to find it on Fuerteventura. We only ate here once, but couldn't fault food, (burger and hand-cut chips).... More

Having been in a rush the morning of the return flight home, the Toston were kind enough to serve up a hearty breakfast in double time; tea / coffee, tomatoes, (great) bacon, mushrooms, sausages, eggs, toast etc My son went home a very happy man. And, one of our party was also served up a Veggie option fit enough for... More

€7.50 for 2 sausages, two eggs, 2 slices of bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, two slices of toast, baked beans, tea/coffee/juice. Filled the plate, but i had a hash brown to top it off. Delicious, great value, and a lovely view of the harbour. Highly recommended,

Not many of the restaurants on the island do really scrumptious puddings.. The El Toston has never let me down..and travelling alone, nice to be made so welcome by the landlady, Mel. Highly recommend their Sunday Roasts too.. their roast pork with all the trimmings was delicious!

This used to be a Cotillo hotspot, but sadly no longer. When Alan used to run it, El Toston Bar used to be a good socializing place. This is no longer the case with the present owners and during one visit we were refused to be served at 11pm given that there were other people in the bar. The barman... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. As Alan is no longer the owner, I feel they are rather harsh and, obviously, retrospective. More

So good we came back the next evening! Warm, friendly and personal welcome, good location overlooking the harbour, genuine home-cooked food of a high quality and remarkably good value.
