Always a great welcome, worth getting out from El Caleton for warm welcome

We got Alan & Gayle's usual warm welcome when we went for our usual first nigh tmeal and drinks.
This must be one of the few British owned places that doesn't try to be little britain. Well used by some locals and various nationalities as well as the wristband brigade from Cotillo Beach Hotel.
A good selection of mostly local drinks, well stocked spirits and Gayle's lovely cooking.
Must admit we didn't drink there as many times as usual, but that's simply because we had more early nights, though that made us miss out on some of the social scene.
Excellent views of the old harbour and sunsets above the Mirador restaurant, which didn't look so busy this year.
A must visit place.

We regard it as compulsory to check in with Alan and Gayle as soon as we get there to find out what is occurring.
If they can't answer a question about something to do with the El Cotillo area then there is always somebody else who can.

If you are going to El Cotillo, try El Toston first. You will very quickly find that it is the best bar in The village and possibly on Fuerte!
See you in February Alan & Gayle 8)

It has been up for sale for over a year now and will stay that way for another couple of years, probably until the economy picks up enough for Alan to get a sensible price.

Wrong jg. El Toston has been sold and the new owners take over in March. Will miss Alan and Gayle behind the bar immensely, absolutely perfect hosts.

Thats sad news , will spoil our holidays not seeing them  :(

Who is the new owner and what do they have planned for El Toston ? We are out in March hopefully it will be similar to what Alan and Gayle have established , it would be foolish to change it ?

I believe they are a lovely couple taking over, Mel and Steve. As you say hopefully not too many changes

Hi all,

This is Mel and Matt Hurst, with Steve to follow! We will be the new owners of El Toston from March 2014!  :)
Our aim is to continue running the bar in a similar way to Alan & Gayle, keeping the music flowing whenever possible! We'll keep some tried, tested and popular things and add some new ones too. We hope everyone will come on by and say hi! We look forward to meeting you all!

Thank you for correcting my out-of-date information.
Here's hoping Mel, Matt and Steve succeed in keeping it the same - only more so.

Good luck Mel, Matt and Steve in your new venture at El Toston Bar.

It will be sad to see Alan And Gayle leave and we shall be over to say farewell to them in 2 weeks time.

It is a lovely bar and holds memories of good times. I'm sure there will be loads more nights to remember (or not!) depending on the booze volume!

Been chatting on email with Gayle and in her own words see you at El Toston on the other side of the bar.   They are not leaving the area and are now going to have more time to enjoy themselves. 
So look forward to meeting old friends at end of March and also Gayle and Alan at El Toston as well as the new owners.   
Nothing stays the same but not to say change is a bad thing.   I certainly wish the new owners Mell, Matt and Steve lots of success, they have big boots to fill and wish Gayle and Alan lots of happiness for the future.
 
Sorry will miss you Rich and also CG.

Hi all thank you all for your kind words, we have enjoyed our 10 years at the bar and in Cotillo, we have met over the last 10 years so many nice people and we now look forward to having a drink with you all on the right side of the bar without having to jump up and serve, we are looking forward to taking life a little slower, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support over such a long period and to wish the new owners a great future in such a lovely place it has served us well, we will still live here but it is now time for us to enjoy what we now consider our home and get to see more of the Island and know as much as you all do. Thanks for your support. xxx
