We ate here on our way to the overnight crossing from Ouistreham to Portsmouth. It's very conveniently located for the ferry terminal, 20 mins drive away. The restaurant is casual & relaxed in style, & offers a glassed in outdoor area overlooking the beach, where we sat. The menu is quire varied, with extensive pizza options (they looked amazing!) as well as savoury creeps (galettes). We went for mussels with white wine, onion & garlic & huge grilled prawns with garlic, chilli, peppers & rice. With drinks and coffees, the bill came to 40 euros, good value for excellent quality food, served swiftly by friendly staff.

This must have been at least our third time and it's well worth a visit. Something for most people from pizzas to mussels to steaks. My choice is steak and I've never been disappointed.

Stayed in Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer for 9 days The Le Crabe Vert came recommended, so 3 friends and myself just needed to try this restaurant out, we thoroughly enjoyed every meal there. The service match the food, very helpful staff, and nothing was to much trouble.

Oliver as it has been said in other reviews speaks fluent English so could be taken for English (so don't ask him if is, as a friend did). The same friend messed his order up and for some reason ordered a Pizza without knowing it? Doh!
Oliver in his fluent English would have been willing to take back the Pizza and let him re-order, there was no fuss, so polite was his action the friend stayed with the Pizza mainly to hide his embarrassment.
The Crabe Vert is very popular with the locals and on the evening we visited there was a constant flow of families or couples and friends just dining out.

A very friendly restaurant, run by Olivier who speaks perfect English and his friendly staff. Perfect for children with pizzas, steak hache etc. Good, tasty casseroles and a small selection of fish dishes too. Lovely views over the sandy beach.
