“Giant Crabs Lover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Woww... excellent..

The restaurant is clean, service is fast and I love the giant crabs..
that was my first time, I thought, as I tried once the Sarang Kepiting in Jl. Gn Sahari, Saung Grenvile will be just another crabs lover restaurant, but they are not..

the way it cooked, presents and taste, are yours who loves crabs dying to find one..
I would recommend my friends next time...

“Crab lovers favorite, good place for family or friends dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Good crab taste, the favorite..black pepper crab.... but the price is getting higher and higher, kinda ridiculous now, specuially when they give you 1.1 kg crab and charge for "jumbo" size crab.... ate there last time, ordered two crabs and gotta pay 1 mio IDR (100 US) or 2 kg crabs....just look for around 900 grams Crab, cant see the difference on the crab, but definitly on the bill.

please bear in mind Crabs have their "seasons" sometime the quality is bad and the price climb up. The prob is the staffs wont tell you this....thats when it sucks to eat there.
for family dinner is acceptable, room rservation, variety of menu, the fish and other food is acceptable for price, serving garouppa, grill chicken etc. their "sambel" (chilli) is qood, love the one they mixed with peanuts.



best drink .. whole coconut.

“Very good food, very good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We just had dinner at Saung Grenvile and it was a delight. The seafood was some of the best we have tasted. Service was very friendly and the location is nicely decorated but it is not cheap so come prepared.

“Good food, but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I tried the one at Senopati, and ordered the crab. As expected, the crab was delicious! All the other menu I ordered are just as delicious. The resto is almost always full. The only downside is the price, though. For those in the know, you can get the same of food quality at a much more cheaper price.

“The best seafood restaurant Jakarta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My family was in this restaurant last April and I would say it is like a Chinatown Restaurant in NYC, very unpretentious and simple but the seafood was spectacular.

We had the Black peper crabs, barbecue fish, squid and we did not want to leave! Their seafood is so fresh and tasty.

The staff was very accomodating and it is a hit with the locals and that was exactly where I wanted to go as the locals know best!

I would highly recommend going there. It is a little challenging to find it by cab but write down address and give it to the driver or call restaurant to give directions to driver.
