You should book this restaurant before going as it is always busy. Only open nights and you can spend a good few hours here lingering and making friends. Caroline and staff are excellent hosts who treat you like long lost friends every time you go. Made many other friends here as well as the atmosphere is so convivial.

We went in at 8.30pm, they asked if we had booked. We answered no, checked their diary and said they would fit us in. There was only 2 other couples in! The food was nice, but we just did not feel welcome in there. The staff talked to us, but didn't chat beyond what they needed to say. The other... More

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

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.
