El Cotillo Bars | Where to drink in El Cotillo



El Cotillo bars are located in different parts of the village. One thing is for sure, when it comes to the El Cotillo nightlife, you won’t find noisy night clubs and bars in El Cotillo. Having said that, some of the bars do have live music some evenings but it is usually good acoustic music, not loud heavy rock.

In fact El Cotillo seems to attract many talented musicians on holiday themselves who often end up giving impromptu performances.

There are chilled bars too where you can sit and enjoy a drink or two, perhaps while watching the sun go down after a day on the beach.

All of the bars sell food so you could also class them as restaurants too in many cases.

If you really need one you can get an “English Breakfast” at a few of the El Cotillo bars, such as the Seahorse or El Toston.

The only beach bar is Torino’s on Playa de la Concha. See the beaches page.

El Toston Harbour View Bar and Kitchen

The Toston has reopened and is now run by Jacqui and Iain, who are long-time El Cotillo residents. They serve good food overlooking the old harbour (with some great sunset views). It is quickly becoming a favourite haunt for many again.

Booking a table is recommended.

Bar Acorralado

This is a small bar on the corner of the little square, just off the main street.

It does some very good Tapas deals (5 tapas dishes, bread and a bottle of wine for 18€ the last time I looked.) It can be quite lively on Spanish football night which I think is Sundays.

Torino’s Beach Bar

Sadly now closed and dismantled thanks to the moronic town hall

This is the only beach bar in El Cotillo and has been run by Torino and his family for many years. It is located on La Concha Beach.

It is a great place for lunch on the beach or just a cool drink or ice cream. Many say Torino’s paella is the best in the village. Facebook page
