“蟳之屋... Not recommended”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

My mom and I went to this seafood restaurant as recommended by hotel staff, because their Japanese customers gave good feedback. Big mistake for us. First sign of trouble: there were no pricing on the menu, an indicator that the establishment could pick any prices as they see fit, and it may not be the same as what they ask for their next customers. Next, we ordered what they recommended as their specialty. We received a dish of stir fried fish-stomach, a dish of local veg, and a pot of braised tuna (flesh taken from the fish cheeks and along its vertebrae). The fish dishes are basically cheap cuts and offals, yet they charged us a total cost of TWD$1200. We love our seafood, and this dinner was poor value for money. If you have unlimited funds and want sashimi and crabs, then go for it, as we cannot comment on these particular dishes. But for us, this restaurant is not recommended overall, for value nor staff service.
