Eleven of us enjoyed a very nice lunch/dinner mid-afternoon after our ride up to Pike's Peak. The sangria was perfect--not too heavy. Everyone's entrees were excellent. The service was very good. The decor was understated, modern Latin American--very, very attractive.

We ate at this lovely little restaurant yesterday and were totally satisfied with every aspect of our evening. We had a wonderful meal, great service and an were impressed by the overall friendly atsmosphere. I had the Cantina Burger, grilled all-natural angus beef patty with manchego cheese mixed with jalapeños and cilantro and caramelized onions served on a great harvest, santa fe corn bun with chipotle mayo and cabbage slaw and sweet potato fries. It was spectacularly good. My wife was just as pleased with the Tostada Chopped Salad, a pleasing romaine lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, cucumber, grilled corn, black olives and red onion finished with toasted pumpkin seeds and tortilla strips. She added roasted chicken and complemented it with oil and vinegar dressing. Next time we go she said that she would try one of their other dressings; i.e., choice of cilantro vinagrette, chipotle ranch or lemon ginger sesame. We ate with friends who were just as pleased with their meals. All in all, it could not have been a nicer evening and we will definitely return.

Worth the Drive and Worth the Price.. Though it was busy and we were not able to sit on the Patio.. The table inside was wonderful and our waitress was wonderful despite a few slow drink orders..
SWEET POTATO NACHOS are about the most wonderful dish i have had in weeks,months or almost EVER.. I will find every excuse to come up the hill for just that dish.
The owner/part owner was always present and made me laugh several times with his charm..
I had the Portobella Mushroom Enchilada's with the green sauce and it was very creative.. I will be back to taste your many other dishes.. BUT ALWAYS the NACHOS..

Also the Margaritas are made with homemade blends and are wonderfull. Love the Jalepeno-Cilantro

Visited the Crystal Park Cantina for the first time recently, with a small group of friends, for lunch. This is a pleasant, clean restaurant in a quiet, off-the-the-beaten-path location, but within a couple of minutes of central Manitou Springs. They have some very nice outdoor seating, which we took advantage of because the weather was very pleasant the day we were there. The food was very good and the service efficient and friendly. Would definitely go there again – and probably will.
