We just returned from an incredible meal here, we loved the scallops and french toast/king prawn starters, and seafood pie and seafood combo. The food is incredibly fresh, the flavours are complimentary and the atmosphere and service was lovely and chilled out. Totally worth the short walk from downtown, and excellent value.

Cangrejo Rojo was my favourite place to eat in Puerto Natales. The location is not the best if you are staying up towards the main street, but Puerto Natales is a small town so it is very quick to walk. The staff are incredibly friendly and the service is great (the chef will occasionally come out and personally speak to... More

I need to be really careful here not to knock the amazing steak and choripan I had on a three week trip across Argentina and Chile, but I have to say this was an amazing recommendation from two San Franciscans when we were there. A cost hut which seats around 12 I reckon. Amazing fresh seafood, in particular we adored... More

The service was very nice but the food was not particularly good. Would not recommend it over other nearby options such as Café Kaikén on Miraflores street.

We went here on our last night in town and we were glad we did. The service was fantastic, the wine was really good and the food was perfect. We had the chicken and the fish pie which were both really good. It's a 20 minute walk from the town centre but a taxi only costs a few dollars. Highly... More

We went with two kids aged 7 and 9, which can be a test in a good food restaurant but no worries at Cangrejo. The food was spectacular, cooking which really made the most of the ingredients. We had a king crab pie which put to shame an earlier offering in Ushuaia of this ingredient. We had good cocktails, great... More

After our first night's dinner, we were so impressed with the food that we had to go back again next day. They serve amazing seafood platters and king crab at reasonable price. Lamb and fish appetizers were equally delicious. Not and extensive collection but they serve some good organic wines and of course delicious desserts to end a memorable meal.

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been in my entire life. It only has place for 20-30 people so be sure to be early. 100% recommended. Staff lovely, food amazing and the place is beatiful!!

We came in with a group of 8 and the lovely people at the red crab kept up as we ordered, ordered and ordered. The wine, appetizers, entrees, dessets all were amazing! Atmosphere fantastic and welcomed the chef who came out and spoke to us giving a round of Calafate digestif on the house. All hail the red crab!
