Located only 5 minutes drive from Sepinggan airport this is the first well known restaurant for good quality crab in Balikpapan.

Kepiting Lada Hitam (Black pepper crab) here is extraordinary. Tasty to the meat inside. I brought the crab to Jakarta, just call them for order and you can pick up on they way to the Airport.

Kenari Restaurant always serving only best quality CRAB in town, their services very fast and punctual to follow the customer request. A little bit costly compare to the another sea food restaurant in town but try their black paper crab and we will forget about the price. I want to keep my memory and enjoy the moment with their black... More

Dining area is OK. Food quality is fine. The spices are not really 'out-of-this-world' but doable, so the taste are OK too. A little bit pricey for the Crab, but the Crab are Huge.

Went here during a business trip to Balikpapan. It was the most recommended restaurant (so they said). Standard setting, nothing fancy, just get straight to eating seafood. I like the black pepper crab but the others like their garlic crab a lot. I'm just much into garlic. Overall it's okay, nothing much to say about it - but surely a... More

It's a good place for those who love seafood, especially crab which locally known as kepiting, look no further. I really like the taste of it. Besides, you can try out other food that served in the restaurant. Definitely worth to visit again in future.
