For bookings on the 31st of December, a deposit of 50% of the menu will be required.

On July 16, 1992, on the occasion of the Olympic Games in Barcelona 92, 'The Crazy Crab' started its activity in the Olympic Port in Barcelona, a marina created to host the Olympic sailing. It is now considered one of the areas of reference of the new post-92 Barcelona.

Our restaurant was able to enjoy the presence of such illustrious figures as their Majesties Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, Prince of Asturias, Felipe de Borbon and Princesses Elena and Cristina, Princess Anne of England, the then IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch and Pascual Maragall, currently President of the Generalitat of Catalonia.

    The food was just OK, and the service was slow. The outdoor ambiance is good with a great view of the water/beach. Prices are high. You’re paying for the view in my opinion.

    The shrimp was horrible. It was very small and they were selling it as large shrimp. The cost of the plate was 44 Euros. Any other restaurant that size of shrimp would have cost less than 10 euros.

    Nice room, nice views, tons of pretentiousness. Orders were mixed up (a minor thing when there are only two of you), but the food overall was quite good. Somewhat limited wine by the glass listing but sufficient. Would I go back? Probably not with all of the great restaurants in Barcelona.

    寒いのにテラスに案内された。中は貸切との事だったが何の事前案内も無し おまけにテラスも貸切に巻き込まれ雰囲気皆無。お金返して欲しい。 また店員も愛想無し。高いだけで行く価値ない店だとよく分かった。

    You are paying for the view....actually over-paying. The food is not very good and the portions are extremely small. 6 large shrimp for $26 €. Fresh fish is on the menu...$65€ / Kg. The Sangria was very good. Wait staff is not very attentive...guessing they want to allow you to enjoy the view. This place was highly recommended for the Barca experience... we found many more places more representative.

    No music -very oddly quiet-pipe some background music in!Had to ask for water, 20+ min after we’d been seated, and it wasn’t busy. Really nice about acknowledging our request, as I’d put on open table, to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation by bringing us champagne! Menu a bit different but we googled different fishes and sauces, and waiter was helpful at explaining. Food was good, grilled seafood platter was really good; tiramisu was not so good at all. View over water was lovely. Overall-maybe 7/101?

    We had a reservation. When we arrived we were seated on a patio over looking a parking lot. We asked to be moved to a view table. We were seated next to the door of the kitchen even though there were empty tables by the window for our whole meal. Our waiter appeared angry for most of the meal. The manager, in a pink shirt started yelling at the bus staff right by our table during our dinner. The bus staff was moving very slowly! The food was not great! We will never return.

    パエリアを食べるならこことおススメされていたこともあり、予約して行きました。 海辺にあり、きれいな海、ウインドサーフィン、セイリングも見えまさにバカンスな感じでした。お店も明るくて、清潔な感じ。 日曜日ということもあり、地元のお爺ちゃん、おばあちゃんと、子供、孫達の楽しそうな会食があちこちのテーブルで見られました。 量が多いと聞いていたので、“My Way”というお得なランチと別にマテ貝の鉄板焼きを注文しました。 冷たい前菜と温かい前菜一品ずつ(二人なら前菜だけで4種類頼めます)、メインは一品。私達はパエリヤにしたのでこの場合は二人でパエリヤのみとなります。 あと、デザートも選べとてもお得なセットでした。 初マテ貝はとても大きくて美味しかったです。 お店の方も、フレンドリーな感じで良かったと思います。 “My Way”は英語メニューしか無いですが、他のメニューは日本語メニューがありました。 行くなら、昼間が海が綺麗でいいと思います。日曜は特に予約がいると思います。テラス席も気持ちよさそうでしたが、涼しくて海が見える二階のお部屋が良かったですよ。

    Despite the location notorious for tourist central, this establishment was refreshing, evidenced by the local patrons filling the restaurant. Food was most enjoyable. We each had wonderful green salads and shared the lobster salad as well. This satiated our appetite with a fabulous bottle of Albarino. Our waiter was absolutely delightful and the manager was very present, ensuring every patron enjoyed their dining experience.
