My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner tonight at Crystal Park Cantina in Manitou Springs, CO. The restaurant is off the beaten path, which we enjoyed, and we noticed the deer enjoyed the neighborhood also. The ambiance was layed back and comfortable with an interesting Mexican decor. Our server, Erin, was superb with just the right amount of attention. We got there before 5pm so we got to enjoy Happy Hour drink prices. I had a bottle of Bohemia beer for $2.50 and my husband's Margarita was a cool $5. The chips were really good - super thin and not too salty and the salsa was delicious - maybe one of the best I've had in Colorado Springs. My husband had the Chili Relleno and I had the Chicken Enchiladas. Each plate came with 2 of the chosen items and beans and rice. The beans were whole, not refried, with the most delicious flavor. I'm not that into rice, so wasn't surprised that I wasn't that impressed with that side. There are 3 sauces you can pick from that are served over the rellenos/enchiladas: pork green chili; red mole; and tomatillo alfredo. All were absolutely fabulous. It's a little pricey, but worth it. My dish was $13 and my husband's was $15, but we could have got the "lighter fare" size and saved a couple dollars each, but I ended up taking 1 of my 2 enchiladas home so I can enjoy it tomorrow. I definitely want to go back and try other dishes, like the fish tacos.
I love everything here but I could eat a ten gallon drum of the rice!
Tucked away from the madness & chaos...be one with nature while enjoying a jalapeno margarita and mojos calente bowl🤗simply manifico!
The best Mexican food on the west side of Colo. Spgs.
I ate here yesterday with friends and enjoyed the whole experience. I’m gluten free these days so I asked if the quesadillas could be prepared with the corn tortillas and the waitress told me they may not look the same but I said I really didn’t care about the appearance so she said she would speak with the chef. It came out perfectly!! My friends both had salads and they looked good as well. The margarita was tasty too I ordered the La Cantina!! Come here, come early right parking!
Awesome food, location, service
Great Mexican food with an Italian flair. Try the tomatillo Alfredo sauce!
Best and most authentic Mexican food in town. We have been regulars for a couple of years.
The Cantina is a quaint restaurant with wonderful food, drinks and service. Everything we have had has been terrific.
Awesome food and environment
Love coming to Crystal Park! Found about the place from a friend and have been coming about once a month ever since. Haven't been in while due to life, but they still recognized us. Awesome margaritas, salsa and some of the best Chile rellanos we've found in town.
This restaurant is not like any other. They have unique atmosphere and their food is nothing less than Amazing! You can pick anything on their menu and you couldn’t go wrong. Great place to have a beer or a soda :) We’ll be back for more of their great food!
Great location. Great food. Even their no spicy is spicier than most places.
Great food and a few things you won't find at other Mexican restaurants. Fast service as well.

Great atmosphere. Excellent food and drinks.
Wow. The food was wonderful. I had a chicken burrito and the chicken was tender and awesome. The rita's were great and the service was fantastic.
So yummy the chili relleno was to die for! Nice and spicy! Very good Margaritas too.
