“Special occasion diner”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

One of our friends gave a goodbye dinner and we were invited. The live music was jazzy and evergreens.The menu promisseed a good choise of delicious food and so it was. Black truffle soup in a small cup was the right started for me. The other guest took had lobster soup and were enthousiastic about the taste. The main course, lambrack and and for me the doversole were perfect. So just a little dessert made the dinner to a wonderful goodbye party. I know it is pricey, but for a special occasion it is the right place.

We had Christmas eve dinner there, a 7 course set meal. The food was wonderful, the ambiance lovely and the owners were perfect hosts- even picking us up and delivering us back to our hotel. It is French food with a modern twist and well worth the short journey from Chiang Mai centre. It is beside the river and therefore has excellent views. We found it reasonably priced for the food we received and would definitely recommend it to anybody looking or something a little special. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas eve

“Superb - always”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

We have visited Le Crystal restaurant many times over the last couple of years and have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This time we had a set Christmas lunch which was very enjoyable due to the seasonally merry staff and management and of course the wonderful dishes.
This is one of only a few fine dining restaurants in Chiang Mai and has a superb setting alongside the river - outside dining is optional. Complimentary transport is available. Also , at the end of each month the restaurant offers a superb buffet which is a perfect way to enjoy fine dining at a very reasonable price.
We highly recommend this restaurant .

“Fabulous French and Steak!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The BEST french restaurant in Chiang Mai (although good cases can be made for Coq d'or and Dhara Devi). Excellent steak, and well prepared and presented French food. Expect to pay US fine dining prices: $50+ per person + wine (selection excellent)
