I go to a lot of restaurants but I almost never write a review because I find it boring. However, this restaurant was absolutely fantastic so I felt compelled write something. The Crab House has great atmosphere, very friendly staff, the food was fresh and...delicious, I will definitely visit it again.More

We heard about Crab House from friends who recommended it and ended up going twice during our stay in PQ. It did not disappoint despite a limited menu at the moment - due to Covid most likely. The crabhouse sauce was so good and goes...perfectly with the baguettes. Even if you're not a crab fan, this restaurant is still one to try as there are other seafood options. Some of our friends who came with us aren't the "peel-em" type but they found enough items to enjoy and came away already planning their next visit.More

Nice place, good concept... But the seafood is not fresh at all. All crab was super dry and blend, and when you pay over 2million, it's not worth it. Even the flower crab that they can buy fresh locally down the street was bad. I...understand that the imported stuff can be frozen, but for the rest no way.. And to top it off, for their 'signature' butter sauce they use MARGARINE butter.... Disgusting. My wife and I woke up in pain in the middle of the night from an indigestion... Not pleasant. We also tried some cookies from their cookie shop and they where stale, oversweetened using bad chocolate Not going back any time soon...More

Food is not bad. But the price is too expensive. My daughter and I ordered just 1 menu and some drinks. It's over 2.2 mil VND. It's almost 100 USD. You can find many good and much more cheaper seafood bbq restaurant in duong dong...area.More

I found this place my first night & couldn’t stop coming back. Popcorn ya’ll! 🍿 Nice free popcorn appetizer. The dinners & 🍤🦀🦑seafood were fantastic! The drinks were perfect. They even had sweet tea😍. If you are from the 🇺🇸USA, you will feel like you...are back home for sure!!! Nice, clean, well lighted indoor air conditioned restaurant. Right in the night market for easy walking around after. Staff was very attentive & well trained to give good customer service. Highly recommend coming here during your visit to Phu Quoc island.More

The Crab House was our big date night in PQ. Very enjoyable setting. Get the buttery garlic bread first. To die for. But I ate it too quickly and when I wanted more, I ended up with a plain loaf. My wife and I splurged...on shrimp and shared a lobster with garlic butter. A good call. A little over 3M VND. But we don’t have lobster often. The owner is an affable guy, a Vietnamese who returned to PQ after many years in the US. I commented that he was especially generous with his paper towels. Closed Tuesdays.More

Love this seafood restaurant. We always come here when in Phu Quoc. Fresh seafood, good service. I always get the blue crab and shrimp in their special sauce. Their crab rice is really delicious too.

A twist of Asian flavours with excellent service. The crab house special sauce is a must and soft shell crab was excellent too.

One of the best places to eat on the island. You can get local seafood prepared Cajun style. Service is top notch. The pricing is very fair for quality.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Cracked our crab at the table (on request). Crab and shrimp were really lovely and cooked to perfection with an excellent house sauce. We had 1 x pot of snow crab legs, blue crab and shrimp, which comes with...corn on the cob and greens and a few new potatoes. I had a cocktail and my husband had one beer. The cost was £134. You wouldn't pay that much in London. Highly overpriced. Would not returnMore

You can eat very well for $20-$30 if you look around. Avoid the tourist traps and over branded restaurants like Crab House they’re not worth it and are extremely over priced
