The Red Crab serves great food at a reasonable price for what you get. It is on the high end of the price scale for Ecuador, but you will find the best crab and the best variety of crab dishes in Guayaquil. The service is very good as is the food.

Service is quite good and the crab options that you have are really interesting. Basically the gratiné crab heads are delicious, but the coconut crab is too sweet. Anyway I think I'll return to this place to taste more crab options. Always ask for the restaurant "bajativo" at the end, is a nice option for ending your dinner.

We got recommendation for Red Crab in our hotel. The restaurant is located in a distant part of the city and it takes 20 minutes by taxi.
Besides us there were very few people in the restaurant. Despite of that the service was very poor. Waiters possessed very limited English, but happily explained us everything in Spanish time after time. During our visit there was a football match on the TV and waiters gathered there instead of attending our needs.
The food was just ok.
The place was quite expensive and we felt that we did not receive sufficient value for our money.
None of us would like to return there again.

We love crabs, every time we are in Marryland, we have to have them, so I was curious to taste this Red Crab restaurant to see if they have almost the same Menu, including the Crab cakes, well let me tell you was way beyond what we imagine, this place offers the local Crab which is very fresh, on Garlic Sauce, mmm was so yummy my mouth started watering again, just to think about it, lol we also love the "Carapacho relleno" my son says that is how you spell it, very good. We can't wait to try this place again on July....yes we are going back again!
