We had set menu which is superb value at 14.95 for 3 courses with wine. Great variety for all 3 courses. Appetisers served when we arrived. We had salmon pil pil and chilli bread to start, steak...

A starter, main, desert and half bottle of wine per person for 15 Euro!! The food is good and there is decent variety... More

Off the beaten track ,but well worth finding.(Its only 100 yards for the coast road) Reminded me a little of a Nth Yorkshire tearoom.Certainly the welcome and the service would do them proud in Harrogate. The three course meal for 14.95 Euro.s had plenty of choice and was delicious.My wife had the misfortune to spill her red wine but this... More

Have been going to this restaurant for several years. At the start it was difficult to find but had been recommended by friends. A quick way to remember is turn up the street at CoCo's bar on the corner and it is at the end. The food, selection and quality is 2nd to none. The variety and price of the... More

A friend and I visited this restaurant today and the food was absolutely amazing. We chose from the Anniversary Deal Menu they had and they allowed my friend to have a vegetarian option that wasn't in the deal. The deserts were phenomenal and the waitress -who's name I didn't catch- was superb. She was by herself yet kept calm and... More

A very pleasant ambience, a good choice at a reasonable price for drinks. Food is excellent, a full choice, twenty or more dishes, varied menu with something for everybody, very well presented and beautifully cooked. My wife, daughter and family, two children and my friends all frequent and all have nothing but good impressions of the Cristal. I will use... More

Excellent food and catered for our mixed party of vegetarian, carnivores and coeliac. Staff were very accommodating and polite, with a sense of humour too. Not expensive so good value for money without compromising on quality.

Lovely little restaurant with excellent food, service and atmosphere. The set menu at 14.95 euros is great value for 3 courses with wine and the main menu is fairly priced as well. Very busy even at this time of year so booking will avoid disappointment. Situated at the end of the little street which runs round the side of Coco's... More

We have dined here many times. It is excellent food and service. Also a great price. We have been all over the world and never found food of this quality. Cruise ships as well. The best value taste and ambiance. The Cristal wins hands down. Please try you will not be disappointed.
