Pleasant Evening

We went to the Crab House on a Friday night and there were only a few other populated tables. It's on the water but not on the beach and is a nice place to go during sunset. We had the crab enchiladas, a ceasar salad, and a fish filet with shrimp and cheese and stuff. The first two items were... read more

Food is excellent, speciality in seafood and grill. Excellent service and delicious food at reasonable prices. Great environment overlooking the lagoon. Very romantic at night.

Excellent service. Could use a little more lighting outside at night. The pet gator was totally unexpected but fun! Food was delish!

Easy to find, it's across the street from the Hard Rock resort. Great service. Restaurant looks plain on the outside but inside it is tastefully designed. Simple bar in the center, stock of cigars on one wall, some small tables around the bar, then there's the outside seating on the lagoon! Beautiful to sit and watch the sunset. Food is... More

Upon entering the restaurant we were immediately shown to our table, with a fabulous view of the lagoon. We both had the stone crab and it was delicious, the wait staff was eager to please and very attentive to our needs. Would definite go there on our next trip to Cancun.

We did not stay on the Hotel Zone, but happened to be there at supper time and so found the Crab House. It was by far the most expensive meal we had during our week in Cancun and by far the worst meal we had. The waiter (non-Mexican) had an attitude and was a salesmen trying to talk us into... More

Had a lovely bayside dinner at sunset. The food was tasty and appropriately priced. Service was impeccable. We were sitting by the rail of the deck and heard a little noise- apparently there is a crocodile that frequents the waters. The servers "call" him periodically and are quick to point him out to the patrons.

We had a wonderful lunch here after a speed boat excursion. The food and the service was top notch. Less expensive than I expected.

We really enjoyed the large outdoor deck, great service, good food, & exceptional view. Directly across from CasaMagna Marriott. Ask the Concierge for the coupon for free appetizer! My family voted it best non- Mexican food meal of our trip!!
