We discovered this Cantina, thanks to Yelp. The decor was wonderful and service was even better. Appetizers, drinks, main course - all combined to make this one of the finest meals we have had in a restaurant. It was a meal for savoring and reflecting after a day of sightseeing on Pike's Peak and Manitou Springs. A delightful surprise tucked along the roadside above Manitou Springs. You don't want to miss this one if you are in the area.

Tip: we went before normal dinner hour and were glad we did so, as the entire restaurant filled to capacity shortly afterwards - a true testament to the quality of food and service they provide.

Our vacation rental hosts as well as the charming apartment were so incredible that we wanted to show our appreciation by taking them out to dinner on one of our last nights there. They suggested Crystal Park Cantina and we absolutely loved it! Its way off the beaten path so, although we spent quite a bit of time exploring Manitou Springs, we would have missed this treat were it not for our hosts. We have an abundance of Mexican restaurants where we live but nothing that compares to the food and drinks at this delightful eatery. Very unique menu, outstanding food, service, great atmosphere, and yummy Margaritas!

Our family of 4 ate here last night sitting on the patio! Great atmosphere and the food is even better! Loved the pork burrito with avocado, the rest of the crew had chicken enchilada, fish tacos and spinach portobello enchilada .... Everyone enjoyed! Margaritas are amazing and try dessert! Highly recommend this little find!

The mojito was very refreshing, the walk home Margarita was plenty strong and tasty.
The chips and salsa were tasty, thin chips appeared fresh.
The pork avacado burrito with tomatilla Alfredo sauce was a 10 out of 10! It had lots of flavorful pork, rice best ever, beans best ever!
We had Amantha as our waitress she is beautiful, fast, funny!

I went there originally because I heard they had great margaritas. Well they do! Made from scratch with natural ingredients, they're awesome! We went there again for my wife's birthday last Sunday and their food was equally fresh and tasty. I had the chili rellenos, which was just as good as anything I remember when I lived in New Mexico. Their staff is always helpful and friendly, and the atmosphere can't be beat. Oh, and don't forget to try their coconut mojito!!
