Paradise!

We went there one afternoon. It seems to be a family run business. They are very friendly and the food and service is excellent.

Came here for lunch, great seafood. Great location right on the beach, beautiful view through the trees of the sea and beach. Food fresh and delicious although portions are big so go easy on the ordering. As westerners we felt very welcomed. Would definitely go again.

I went there for lunch with my daughter and her partner. The setting is great: right on the beach but under some large trees so it is still cool. Heaps of room between tables. We had crabs, fish, and prawns; all were amazingly fresh and cooked to perfection. The beer was cold and the staff friendly. I recommend the Crab... More

This is a true treasure! The setting on the beach with assorted table and hammocks is very comfortable. The water is nice and warm. The food is so great! Prawns are gigantic and delicious. The owners are a wonderful couple. Can't say enough about this place. They even serve tea in a tea pot!

We went here on our hired scooter. Really relaxing place to have some drinks by the beach. Food was good, big portions! quite a few other beach bars along the front including Crab Shack 2!

Randomly found this place while driving around looking for food. We ended up getting three massive plates of food for $9. Its right on the beach which isn't an amazing beach by any standards but so much better than the bustle of Phnom Penh.

We asked our tuk tuk driver to take us somewhere to eat where we could see the sunset. When we arrived at the Crab Chack all was in darkness and we wondered what to expect. The sunset was beautiful and then we were given the menu to order. We were amazed at the magnificent food which arrived, all beautifully presented.... More

The crabs and fish were very good but unfortunately we didn't set a price before we finished eating and they charged $ 20 for a fish and a crab plate!! First they even wanted to have thai bath and we didn't know the exchange rate!

This is on a very quiet stretch of beach about a 20 minute ride from Koh Kong town. The tuk-tuk should cost about $8 from town. The driver will probably agree to wait for you and take you back unless you want to spend a very long time there. It is not to be confused with the more up-market Crab... More
