very good experience

My wife and I recently visited the Crab House on a recent trip to Cancun. The staff/management are very welcoming and attentive. The food was good and prices were a little pricey but it's Cancun in January. I would recommend this to couples.

Tonight we dined like royalty! I had their jumbo stone crab with creamed spinach. My husband had the paella. We both could not stop saying how good our dishes were. The waiters, Guillermo and Armin, were superb. Their suggestions, prompt and attentive service topped off the evening! I highly recommend this restaurant - it's the best meal and dessert we've...

We had an amazing dinner here. The service was impeccable, although almost too much doting. You didn't feel like there was any privacy. It's very pricey ($100/person for food/drink), but well worth it as far as quality of the food and service are concerned. There is a beautiful sunset view. We were rained out just before sunset, but this is... More

We had a great experience here. We sat outside on the large deck overlooking the lagoon and had great service. We split a crab appetizer, a couple of shrimp entrees and a desert with strawberries and whipped cream. All were great. We will return.

This is the second time we've been here to eat and once again the food was excellent! They had just finished renovating a couple weeks before and it is beautiful. It was considered to windy and cool to sit outside this time but I highly recommend doing so, the view is awesome. We were seated upstairs and had the whole... More

Short walk from JW Marriott, we sat upstairs and had an excellent view. We purchased the lobster, crab, shrimp dish for 2 people for 140, bottled water, wine, beer & salad came to 185US. Friendly staff.

It was a nice treat to get out of the resort and have a fancy dinner. Highly recommended if you're looking for a high end meal.

My wife and I were in Cancun for our honeymoon January 17th-23rd and stayed at the Grand Oasis Sens. In the 6 nights we were in Mexico, Crab House was so good we ate it 2 times. This first time we went, the appetizers, bread and bisque were so filling, we didn't want to overstuff ourselves and opted to just... More

Wife and I had a dinner special of lobster tail, shrimp, stone crabs and Alaskan crab legs. Was very good. Couldn't finish it. Had lobster bisque soup excellent. And wife had green salad excellent. The service was beyond good. Some of the best service I've ever had, and I eat out 3x week minimum all over the world.
