This is a nice restaurant, inside and out. The food ( stone crab) was pretty good, and fairly priced. My only complaint was with the bus boy, actually girl, I think. She would come by the table every two or three minutes, and start removing our food items. She took our bread plates away, with bread still on it. She... More

Dine at the Crab House every time I'm in Cancun. The lobster is amazing. Their special cocktail sauce alone is worth the visit.

We went to this restaurant as it was close to the hotel and looked nice from the outside. First of all, the parking here is only valet; no set price but pay in tips. The bread is absolutely yummy! We ate outside facing the lagoon which was beautiful cool and no mosquitoes. The food tasted great, but not large portions... More

We went there after a jungle cruise and were totally surprised at the great food & service. We plan to return for dinner soon.

Value for food, small portions, mediocre seafood. Stick to lorzenzillos for best jonah crab claws, and portion size.

Decided to have 1 meal out of the hotel, as we both love seafood, decided on Crab House. Low season, not many customers so waiters very attentive. 2 martinis tasted like sour blended pea pod juice. Jumbo shrimp cocktail at abt £10 each was 5 large shrimp in a pepper sauce, (should have asked abt sauce) ask for 'rose marie'... More

Go out for a nice dinner and ask to sit on the patio. Check over the balcony and you may see a salt water crocodile. We were mesmerized as we watched it look for scraps or diners to drop food below. The food was ok but not worth the money. The service, crocodile, and views of the lagoon get the... More

Made a reservation early today, and arrived exactly when I told them, and the table, "will be ready in a minute." Served by M. Juan Jose Mendoza, with help from 3 other employees, very intermittently. Maybe 5 other tables of customers in the entire restaurant. Took our drink order, and had it back to us in less than 20 minutes.... More

Spent close to $200 for a family of 4 to have dinner although 3 out of 4 of us had crab. So maybe you get what you pay for, but 1 of the 3 of us who had crab, got food poisoning- we're sure it was from here because the reaction was within 2 hours, so very quick- and she... More
