When we did dine here, the food and service was outstanding. The kind of restaurant one would go to even if it were in a hotel. To Bad It's Closed !!!

We were shopping in old town and decided to give this place a try- it had very nice decor, somewhat upscale. The variety on the menu was amazing. The Mexican food was very authentic and my friend wanted just a good homemade hamburger. Portions were generous and the food was obviously freshly made. Excellent service too!

My wife and I found ourselves trying out Cristobals mainly because we had an Entertainment Book coupon. We arrived and were a bit skeptical because we were the only ones in the restaurant around 8:00 p.m. on a Friday night.

Not bad for a hotel restaurant, however there was not a great deal to choose from on the menu .Considering its a fair walk to any other restaurant ( if you are staying at the Hotel Albuquerque) you are kind of forced to eat here

The food was top notch, have not had better food anywhere else in Albuququerque. The staff was also on top of things and was ready for you when you needed them.

Ordered some lunch about 3pm after check-in. Food took a while as I was told there was no one to currently bring it upstairs. Once it arrived it was good.

Warm, friendly, a pleasant atmosphere, great food, and good service. A little more upscale, a nice place for special occasions. They also have a wide selection of wines in their shop.

This restaurant is located within the Hotel Albuquerque and offers delicious food with great service. We attended a client dinner here and had two servers designated just for our table of 15. Servers were very attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxing and warm. Food was prepared fresh and was simply delicious. Cristobal's offers daily specials and fresh fish of the... More
