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

The worst sea food I ever had in my entire life, the worst service , really rude waiters, and bad paella, I really wouldn't recommend it, there are much better places nearby

We had asked the receptionist of our hotel where we can have good fish. Without thinking he told us to go to El Cangrejo Loco. Had the chance to walk in the marina and spend a nice afternoon before visiting the restaurant. Service was good, food was very good (seafood paella) and view was fantastic. In case of visiting the... More

We stumbled across whilst searching for somewhere decent to eat for dinner at the marina. We shared a starter of prawns which were nearly as expensive as main and a very small portion. I had the hake with chill and garlic cooked well but the veg was minimal and luke warm. My girlfriend had the sea bass but it lacked... More

First night in Barcelona we ventured into Port Olimpic to find the Crazy Crab by a recommendation from our parents who loved it on their previous two visits. Service was a little lacklustre but it was compensated by fresh tasty seafood that arrived quickly. We sat on the terrace overlooking the beach sipping lovely cava and it all added to... More

Go here if you want, the worst cocktails ever, the worst and most expensive food ever, with very average service. You have a nice view but you are surrounded by the foulest of tourists!!! I wish I could erase this place from my memory, so bad it makes me want to cry from disappointment

We got this restaurant recommended due to its fantastic view, delicious food and good service. But we were disappointed. We were 4 people and got a friendly welcome - until we were seated. From then on the service was lousy - almost unfriendly. The food (we chose the menu) was in small portions. Not excellent but ok. The view was... More

This is a favorite of ours. When you need a civilized beach side rest from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona, head out to the olympic port. Very easy to reach by metro. Stunning view and very good seafood await you. Ask for the menu del dia and for EUR 25 you will be served a four course meal with... More

You should sit at the upper part of the restaurant, in which the view is great. We were about 10 friend, and all the dishes were tasty and served nicely, I highly recomend the place.
