This is a nice enough restaurant, the food is good but our experience was badly let down by one waitress, she displayed nothing other than indifference, she appeared to have little interest in the food (although she did sit down to eat twice while we...were there). The second senior lady was busy running things and serving was lovely. A number of items were unavailable but that I guess is natural in a restaurant serving fresh fish -seasonality is important.More

We found this establishment by chance. We had a small double burger each, and these were cooked to perfection. Everything was was fresh, you can see everything coming together. The staff were friendly. We went back again 2 days later for a repeat meal.

Visited this restaurant twice while staying in Amsterdam on vacation. The quality of the food and the level of service were truly outstanding. Thank you for the memories.

I had 6 oysters and the tuna salad. The tuna was perfect ( cooked on the edge, red in the centre ), and the salad was very good. I’d never been before but I’ll be back. Here on business ( eating alone is never fun...), but this place was very welcoming.More

This place was a treat for our 27th anniversary and we weren’t disappointed. The servers were so so lovely. Forgot to get their names but they made our evening so much. We had the crab burger and crab legs and every scrap was delicious.

Me and my friend (travelling) came in for a meal on a Friday night, Katya greeted us instantly and the other waitress. They were both so polite and attentive. She asked if we needed any help with the Menu or anything explaining and got our...drinks to us very quickly. Fantastic food and service and also very evenly priced for the portions you get! Will definitely be returning when I come back to Dam! Made my friends birthday very special!! Thank you TashaMore

Our waitress katya was amazing all night, so helpful and patient. She even let me try my first oyster even though the kitchen had already closed. She couldn’t do enough for us. Food was also amazing and big portion sizes. They had full English menus...so a great place for tourists too. :)More

I have eaten at Mr Crab a couple of times and it has been really good. Unfortunately, something seem to have changed and the food isn't at all what it used to be. This time I had the shrimp cocktail and it was about half...the size as the last time, with very little sauce and the shrimps were not top quality either. The main course (grilled shrimps) was also below average I'm sad to say. Didn't taste that much there than barbecue seasoning and the fries were a bit soggy and also below average and definitely below what you would expect from a restaurant of that kind. The desert (creme brûlée) was really good though. However, all this taken together makes it not worth the price. The staff was still very friendly though!More

The food was tasty. We had the combo warm and cold for 2p for 135 euro. Wine was good as well. 1,5-2 hours after finishing I got really sick. Will not share the details but had food poisoning. The following 2 days had to stay...in bed and was emptied completely. Then reached out to te restaurant to inform them. Twice. But no reply back at all to my messages. Very bad and not responsible! Do go there if you do not want a food poisoning.More

First off, the staff were so nice and lovely. Their service was top notch. Being this the first day that patrons had to provide a QR code to eat inside, I think the staff handled it great. We witnessed a few patrons that were obnoxious...about it but life is life and the staff were very professional. The food was delish and presentations were beautiful. If it was okay to lick the plate off, I would have! We definitely will be going back.More

There were only two tables occpupied, despite which it took the chef 40-50 minutes to overdo our burgerpatties, on our remark regarding the quality of burger we heard that apparently we could choose the rawness of our meat. Surprise! Fries were waiting for the chefs...overdone patties for at least 30 minutes, they came as cold my mother in laws heart, maybe even colder. Overall it tasted like disappointment, although the price is not that low. 4 burgers, none eaten to the end. Also they didn’t have the main dish that is supposed to attract people (and which literally lured us in this place —Surf and Turf). We were offered free stale fries as a compensation for the stale overcooked mediocre food. We politely refused. Inside of the cafe stank from the overdone fat on the stove, the outside was already too cold to enjoy the evening. Guys, if you consider this place, don’t. Better go to McDonald’s, at least you will save your money and get less carcinogenic exposure from the driest and firmest patties. PS The garlic sauce was good, I guess.More

Great service and at decent price considering it is centric, serves seafood, and is in a really touristic city.
