On a Wednesday night our party of four was the only occupied table in the place at about 7 pm. Nothing we ordered was fancy or special. It took so long to get it we began to think the staff had gone home. Food was decent but the service was so poor we probably will never go again. Too many... More

The food here was good but be ready to wait. At time the staff where all standing at the bar talking with no concern for patrons.

Steak was OK. Did not have a great experience here. Staff were helpful in finding a solution but it seemed to ruin the evening for me.

Everyone at the restaurant was very friendly and the service was almost too attentive. The seating was very comfortable and nice low lights. But we found the food to be of poor value for what we got, compared to other food in Huatulco. Complimentary bread and herbed butter were brought to the table - the white, commercial bread was almost... More

Last evening we went to the re-opening of the Kristal Rose, now located in the Marina Park Plaza. Popcorn shrimp and the bacon wrapped shrimp entree were wonderful, along with a bit of wine. Met some nice folks as well.. Will be back next Thursday for the Thanksgiving Day dinner special. Juan and his team continue to put out superb... More

Four of us dined at Kristal Rose. We ordered the Cesar salad and it was made in front of us. The food was wonderful. We were the only people in the restaurant for most of the evening. The wait staff was great, but they would prefer pesos instead of American money. We would go again.

I was staying nearby and decided to come here for breakfast. I was the only person in the restaurant the whole time, but it was still great! Really good coffee, pastry, and huevos aztecas! Have wifi too!

While this restaurant was highly recommended, it was not up to the same standard as our last visit. There were more staff than customers, yet the service was incredibly slow and the food only adequate. The beet salad should be avoided! It seems that everything was sauce laden making it difficult to taste anything else.

We'd forgotten about Kristal Rose because... well, it happens. Then someone said they were doing Mexican lunch, the comida corrida, from 1 to 4pm. And so we went today! GOOD CHOICE! An excellent set menu with choice of soup or rice starters (both delicious), then a stuffed pepper with chicken or a slice of tender beef, nopal cactus and refried... More
