Yet another return visit as I have been calling for the last 5/6 years. The food and choice is great, staff extremely friendly and always welcomed. I'd say that the menu caters for everyone and all are cooked and presented well and always plenty to eat. I will be back again on my next visit.

We visites Cristal early evening with a total of 14 persons between 3 and 40. The waitress was very positive and forthcoming. During the meal she was joined by a colleague, equally good. Most of the kids had chicken nuggets, eating up everything. Obviously the food fit their taste :) The adults mostly went for the reasonably priced Threecourse-meny, as... More

The food and service you receive at Cristal's is so good that you have to book a table in advance. The staff will provide you with plenty of attention and enjoy a chat with you. Brilliant ambiance, love my brandy in the large glasses, spotlessly clean. If you are a food lover then you will love Cristal's. Can't wait till... More

Visited twice during our weeks stay in Benalmadena and if our holiday was longer we would have returned again. The food was of a very high quality and very well presented. The three course set meal offers an excellent choice and also offers a half bottle of wine. Tremendous value. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

We spend al least 6 weeks a year in Benalmadena and always have several meals at the Cristal restaurant each visit. The fixed price 3 course evening menu with wine is both excellent value and really good food well cooked and presented. It is a family run business and the staff are most courteous. We look forward to returning to... More
