We are in a griup of 16 people weee charged €150 each for 7 or 8 course new year set dinner. We were herd into tent like room where appitizers were served on plastics. There were great quantities but quality is not there. We left there wth great disappointment. We could have paid for much less for much more.

This is an excellent seafood restaurant nestled next to Port Olimpic's yacht docks. We were staying at the W Barcelona, and took a leisurely walk along Barceloneta beach to get to El Cangrejo Loco. Although the vicinity was relatively quiet, we were surprised that the restaurant was crowded (good mix of locals and foreigners). That already got our hopes and... More

We had lunch here and chose it on whim over the other numerous restaurants on the jetty on the beach. It's the last one and has a traditional rustic section downstairs and a business white table cloth style upstairs. we chose this as it had an excellent view of the sea and marina. we went mad and had plates of...

Wanted to try seafood and this was recommended by the hotel staff. My thoughts are these areas: - Food - fresh and delicious, photo of the dinner as posted. - Price - 4 course for 25 euros - Atmosphere - Quiet and spacious, perfect if you have a buggy and children - Service - Staff were great, very friendly and...

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
