Great steak!

Haven't eaten here in several years, we opted for the outdoor seating instead of the inside air conditioning. Had the arracherra which was very good, comes with a baked potato. I would have preferred rice and beans but the potato was good. Margaritas were some of the best I had. Also had the... read more

It used to be that this was the go to place for a thick, scrumptious steak but that seems to have changed. Out of 10 in our party, 5 of us had steak and were all disappointed. Four of us had a small steak while one of the gents ordered a grande steak (more expensive of course). When we were... More

Last year I wrote a review on this restaurant and was not sure if we would ever come back due to a bad experience. My wife and I decided to give it another chance this year, since so many people we know raved about it. We are so glad we did! We visited in February 2015 and ordered the grilled... More

Dropped into this well known landmark in Huatulco last night for a dinner with 8 other friends. Heard the steaks were great. Taste wise, yes they weren't bad, but talk about skinny steaks! They were all of 3/8" thick if that. So when you're getting charged a healthy $250P for a few steamed veggies, a baked potato, and a 350gr.... More

We had a wonderful dinner here! The hostess Yesame` speaks English and she had the chef come to our table to assist us in ordering. The food was fantastic - congratulations to the chef. One of our party had Coconut Shrimp and he said they were very good. The rest of us had the Filet of beef with the blue... More

This was our 2nd time to Huatulco, but our first visit to Kristal Rose. Everything we ordered was delicious! From my husband's favourite, queso fondido with chorizo, to the fabulous beef & shrimp kabob, our meals were perfection. I only wish we had discovered this gem earlier in our vacation. The staff were great and the restaurant is very comfortably... More

The table side presentation of the Caesar Salad was really tasty and so authentic. I really wanted the shrimp and beef brocheta and looking at it on the tray they present with selections I just knew I could not eat it. Oscar, our waiter, suggested we share it, which we did. They presented our food on two separate plates, each... More

We finally got around to visiting the Kristal Rose on our last night in Huatulco. Too bad...we would have dined here often! The restaurant was suggested to us by a fellow traveller, as having a fantastic breakfast menu. We found the location on the last night of our vacation, and thought we'd give it a try. The owner was out... More
