These people certainly know their seafood. The shrimp is perticulrly nice. The menu is big although they done always have everything. There is stil a huge choice regardless.

Located in the new SM Mall, the Grab the Crab restaurant has excellent food and service. The staff will go out of their way to please and make your dining experience wonderful. They even had Bacardi 151 Rum which I haven't had in years,

This review is centered around the Robinsons Grab a Crab. Ive only dared to eat here three times in the past couple of years on my vacations here. Hoping with each attempt there is some kind of improvement. Only stale dreams are found. Barely presentable bland food, while half asleep staff seem to care not of the customers wishes/order. Meanwhile,... More

We were a party of 12 adults. We ordered a wide variety of dishes from the menu and all were very tasty. Service was a little slow, and they had to be prompted to serve the drinks while we were waiting, rather than leaving us to thirst! On the whole, a good experience, though the toilet (CR) was not very... More

Was there to celebrate my birthday with my family. The place is nice. It has spacious dining area. We ordered their specialty, crab. Delicious and sumptuous. Grilled Tuna though was not fresh, it triggered mild allergic reaction. Good thing the attendant took the tab off the list. Over all, I recommend the place to anyone who likes sea foods.

Visited the location in the Robinson's mall. The service was good and the food good also. The environment was more what i'm used to seeing in a US chain and not typical Philippine. Good value as most places in the Phils. The crab was good and the Durian shakes were made to order.
