This is a friendly restaurant with a wide menu selection. We, however, had a 3 course meal (starter, main course,dessert) + 1/2 bottle wine for 16.95€...a great value.

Four of us had a great "menu del dia" meal at Cristal. The food was great and when we told them that we didn't like the house wine they changed our wine without quibble. Great food - wonderful service - great for families, couples and groups. Value for money. Will go there again.

This restaurant is usually closed at this time, but opened for our travel group of 40+. The food was very good. The staff did a tremendous job of serving everyone in a very timely manner , considering we all dropped in at the same time. Atmosphere was great ! A definite do it again.

Yet another return visit as I have been calling for the last 5/6 years. The food and choice is great, staff extremely friendly and always welcomed. I'd say that the menu caters for everyone and all are cooked and presented well and always plenty to eat. I will be back again on my next visit.

We visites Cristal early evening with a total of 14 persons between 3 and 40. The waitress was very positive and forthcoming. During the meal she was joined by a colleague, equally good. Most of the kids had chicken nuggets, eating up everything. Obviously the food fit their taste :) The adults mostly went for the reasonably priced Threecourse-meny, as... More
