Nice restaurant direct to the paseo, with view over the beach and see. The food was nice, with a twist :-) I never had Club Sandwich with fried eggs before, it must be dutch specialty :-) Anyway the food was good, the prices as you would expect direct down to the beach, maybe even a bit in the low end....

I first visited Cristal in February 2013 on the off-chance with a group of family and friend. I didn't expect it to be quite the stunning value that we got. A set menu for €14.95 was available with half a carafe of wine and 3 courses. House wine is lovely although a €2 for the Rioja was well worth it-gorgeous!... More

I am afraid I cannot agree with the other reviewers. We went here one hot evening in September and although they had aircon installed it was not running. When we queried this she just said there is a breeze!! She immediately brought appetizers. When we came to order a la carte steak she said the vegetables were chef's choice so... More

Every time I go to Benelmadena I got and visit this restaurant. Food and service excellent. 3 course meal for 14.95€. Lots of choice. Caroline has always a smile on her face. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Me and 4 other lads arrived and headed straight to Cristals after a recommendation from a friend. 4 course meal and half a bottle of wine for £14.95 and the food is of exceptional quality! The steak and pepper sauce is delicious! Staff are friendly, jolly and obviously care a lot about their business! One of the best in Benalmadena.

Quite Close to Sunset Beach Club, about 100m up a street just off the main road.. A British owned & run restaurant., but the cuisine is very broadly based and encompasses local dishes as well. The menu is good, but the restaurant offers a daily set menu with 3 courses and 1/2 bottle of wine for €14.95. the food was... More
