We went on a clear, sunny, early Nov day. The food wasn't exceptional but it was really very pleasant to have sea views, good wine and paella, with excellent service. We appeared to be the only non spanish ppl dining so we didn't feel it was that touristy. We also asked for a recommendation of somewhere to go after to... More

This restaurant was recommended by our limo driver. We found the staff and food to be above average. We had tuna carpaccio, paella with meat and seafood, and an appy of bread with tomatoes. The hero in this review is the views of the harbor. It was simply beautiful!

A bit down the street from the Barcelona Casino and facing the marina, Cangrejo Loco specializes in seafood, and is one of the more upscale choices in this part of town. Our business group ordered quite an assortment of starters and shared them. All were excellent and substantial - green peppers, fried whitefish (or similar to whitefish), steamed clams, lightly-fried... More

Service very good, location at harbour side was pleasant but the lobster paella was superb, although not cheap at 28 euros.

This place has a large selection of seafood and shell fish. It is a large restaurant and has reasonable service. It might be a good choice for a large group that is not too demanding of the quality of the food. The meal I had was certainly not outstanding or decent quality for the price. It was decent but not... More

been here a couple of times, while this place was recommended by locals. I have to say the food is still very good, but the place has become less and crowded. Not sure what is the reason, but while we had to book the place in advance in the past, now the place was almost empty. Book a seat outside,... More
