Cristallo di Luna, Pacific Regency Hotel Suites, KL

We love a restaurant with a good view. At Cristallo di Luna located in the 5-star Pacific Regency Hotel Suites, you can wine and dine to the view of the iconic KL Towers. We've been told that the restaurant is a popular spot for romantic proposals ;)



Luna Bar has some pretty awesome cocktails, such as their signature lychee martini (RM38) as well as the Classic Mojito (RM38).


Lychee Martini - Absolut Blue, lychee liqueur, Martini Dry, Monin lychee syrup, and fresh lime juice

Prices here at Cristallo are pretty reasonable. Appetizers range from RM18 to RM35. Executive Sous Chef Zairul Effendi wanted to showcase some of Cristallo's signature dishes, so to start, we were served the Warm Seared Scallops and Prawn with Ruby Red Grapefruit,Orange & Frisee Salad and Piquillo Coulis (RM35). Beautifully presented, this was a lovely combination - the freshwater prawn sourced from Sabah was shelled, so we didn't have to get our hands dirty prizing out the fresh and taut meat. And below lies three nicely seared US scallops.



For mains, you can choose from poultry (duck or chicken), meat (beef or lamb), and fish (salmon, cod, monkfish or seabass). The Alive Farm Free Range Chicken Roulade (RM47) was first cooked sous vide and then pan seared to crisp up the chicken skin. This is served with pumpkin puree, spring vegetables and a cafe au lait sauce.


Diners can choose either Australian Black Angus grass-fed sirloin (RM82) or tenderloin beef (RM94). We had the latter, which was served with potato dauphinoise, fricassee of mushrooms and morel jus. Personally, I would have preferred the beef to be less cooked (ie medium rare to medium) to enjoy the juiciness of the beef.




Dessert was a chocolate spiced torte (RM24) served with a lemon sorbet. The moist chocolate cake is spiced with a hint of chilli to give it a subtle spicy kick.

  1. The starter dish looks beautifully vibrant. The grapefruit, orange and piquillo coulis make the dish sound so tangy and refreshing already! :)
