Excellent octopus fajitas. Overfried shrimp, mushy croquettes and greasy, bland pasta. Nice outdoor terrace. Ok service.

They try to feel like a king, but they miss the target. A lot of busy servants get your dinner noisy. Despite the margarita is made by a master bar tender! Price very expensive.......

The food is superb. We had... More

Visited the Crab House with my daughters and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and our seafood dinners. We will be making a trip back to the Crab House for the Alaskan King Crab legs on our next trip back to Cancun.
