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.

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

We were told about this restaurant by a local otherwise we would not have found it. The 3 course menu including wine and plenty of choice at €14.95 was excellent value for money. We will be going back on our next visit.

Always parking nearby on-road or on the car-park, a must in busy Benalmadena. Menu is extensive and the menu del dia option is super value. Dishes are good and fresh, portions not enormous but will suffice if you have three courses. The waitresses are lovely. Worth a trip if you're on a budget. Recommended.
