We go to Benalmadena Costa every year. Although we like to try the local Spanish cuisine, this British/Irish restaurant is a gem and worth a visit. Good food, service and value for money,

we had a brilliant meal here. Excellent choice and food was very well presented. Not just put onto plate but very well presented. We were all delighted with our choice. House wine was also very good and very well priced. Would certainly recommend and return

We had booked another Restuarant but when we arrived it was closed as it was an anniversary dinner we were very disappointed. There were four of us and as my husband and I had eaten in the Crystal before and enjoyed it we persuaded our friends to try it. They said it was the best meal they had had since... More

Friendly team! My soup had a bit of a metal scourer in but was quickly replaced. Rest of meal was great. Read sign in toilets about high water pressure before using taps, not after. See photos, lol!

We visited one weekday evening as we has walked past and it looked rather pleasant. Menu was appealing as was the price. Went in and the service was fair. Nice enough ladies. Food was a big let down. Appetisers was a nice touch. Menu offered a lot of choice. Smallish size portions and I agree....very bland. Chef needs to season... More
