A simple but cozy restaurant with a lot of good dishes, with fair prices, at Maputo. Rice grouper with shrimp is one of many good offers of Crystal, where we can also find some typical Mozambican dishes. It also has one of the best cooked crabs of the city.

Returned to Cristal, and I had a better experience. I had a mushroom boat for starter, carne de porco a alentejana and chocolate mousse, and everything was delicious. If you are outside the street vendors can be a bit annoying. I will return more.

It's within a walk away from my office on 24 July. I have a lot of business meetings here and if you're lucky you can meet other interesting entrepreneurs at this venue.

With weekday named food specials you can be in and out within an hour. I always enjoy the friendly staff and we'll cooked food.

The prices are reasonable and the management is very hands on.

Cristal is a very old spot in Maputo that has been refurbished and converted into a nice, non-fancy restaurant. The sea food is very good and it is a must im Maputo if you want to eat a fantastic delicious crab!
