We visited this restaurant once during our trip to Curacao. Tasty food and polite service. We were positively surprised by the local and a bit exotic menu (such as flying and lion fish).

After many great dinners at Cristal, once again we were amazed by the quality of the food, and the creative talents of Chef Stefan. Beef carpaccio, scallops with risotto, and the spring chicken were all beautifully plated and delicious.

I think you mean to say dresscode? Officially not but I wouldn't go there in my beach wear. Unofficial dresscode: 'charming' I would say ;-)
