If there's a place I suggest you don't visit is this restaurant. Their service is terrible and the waiter's attitude was so disrespectful. They have a very limited menu that is severely over priced (no wonder there was not a single patron when I was there). If you want a good meal that's closer and walk over to Puerto Madero... More

Loved the seafood bisque and relaxing atmosphere. The food was great. Outdoor seating on the water was great also.

Our waiter took the time to recommend various choices in detail and even questioned how we liked our meals prepared. We ordered various items and found them all very good including Oysters Rockefeller, Clam Chowder served in a bread bowl, Stone Crab, and Alaska King Crab. We enjoyed them all. The prices vary on some crab orders depending on the... More

We enjoyed a platter of Caribbean lobster, king crab, stone crab and fresh fish. Everything was cooked beautifully and we really enjoyed our evening. I suggest the restaurant remove the TV's as they detract from our enjoyment.

This was easily our most enjoyed meal while in Cancun. Our server, Nikolay, was top notch and quite funny. We sat out on the deck overlooking the lagoon. It was fortunate that it happened to be at sunset and it was simply breathtaking. We had the crab claws as an appetizer and then alaskan king crab and oysters rockefeller. All... More

The food is average and the service is lackluster. As soon as you're seated a humongous lobster is flashed in front of you, not such a good idea for a first impression. We wanted to take in the view and relax with a glass of wine first but it's obvious that all the owner care about is $$$$$. The food... More

We return to the Crab House every time we are in Cancun as its one of our favorites. The outdoor seating right on the water is very nice and the food is delicious. And yes, it's true there is a 9-foot alligator in the lagoon, we saw it. There is also some live music - a trumpet player. In my... More
