My husband said this is the best Mexican he's had and I'd have to agree. Super friendly service! We loved this place. It's a must try! We would def visit again if in the area.

This restaurant off the main street of Manitou is in a quiet and relaxing location. The outside eating is the best pace to be, but you often need to get there early for dinner as the patio fills up quickly. There is lots of room inside. The upstairs area is a bit noisy. The food choices for more unique that... More

Food was not good. The place is pretty cute and service was not bad. But, the food just did not cut it. The chicken in the burrito was dry and flavorless and the white sauce over it was "broken" and also flavorless. Neither of us liked it or finished eating it. Not sure how the other mexican places are, but... More

Service was mediocre. Staff was pleasant but had to ask for refills on drinks and salsa. I got burned on a very hot plate and the staff never asked how I was after getting me a bag of ice that I had asked for. Enchiladas were tasty although they were rock hard as they deep fry them? Food is on... More

This restaurant is fairly close to Pikes Peak Cog Railway. The food was great,casual, quiet and a nice patio. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Main St. Thanks Jessica for the service.

We wanted Mexican and did want a chain restaurant. This was the place. Their margaritas were amazing epically the La Sangria Margarita. Service was excellent and dinner was really good. Portion size was perfect. I had the grilled shrimp tacos they were perfect. They're off the beaten path but so worth the trip. There were a lot of locals there... More

We went here with our kids after visiting Garden of the Gods. Food had great flavor, and good portions. I had the chicken enchiladas with green chili which was very good. It appeared that there was only one menu for lunch and dinner, so lunch was a little pricier than normal, but no other complaints. Worth a visit if you're... More

This location housed the Mission Bell restaurant for many years and it's food was mediocre. I had not eaten here since it opened as the Crystal Park Cantina a couple years ago. I am sorry I waited so long! We arrived to find parking sparse. Afraid we would find the wait lengthy; we were pleased to be seated immediately (party... More

Highly reccommend Crystal Park Cantina! great margaritas, great food, great atmosphere. I had the Mexican Mixto...chili relleno and enchilado with rice and beans. It was really good. The food is a little "fancier" than I'm used to and I'm ok with that. enjoy!
