Very nice view from the outdoor deck. The appetizers were bigger than expected, which was great. The service provided by George and Alfredo was outstanding. I would recommend to a friend.

We have been looking forward to trying this restaurant... Only to be disappointed. We went for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. I had shrimp for appetizer.. it was very salty. My husband had tuna for appetizer, it was bland. My husband got salmon for main...course.. it was dark and salty. Look like it was cooked on a very dirty grill. My husband told the server and was offered to change it. My husband lost his appetite and decided not to get anything else. My octopus was soggy. It was money that went to waste. I think it would’ve been a very nice gesture if they removed the salmon meal from the bill, but they did not. Service was just as bad as the food. Everybody was just rushing to close the restaurant and be done for the night. Not coming back.More

Went for lunch. Overall it was a great experience. We had the cold seafood platter for 2 with crab, shrimp and oysters. Everything was incredible. Then I had the Octapus (pulpo) and it was unbelievable. So tender. The only thing I did not like was...the addition of “service” to the bill. They want 15% on American prices. Think about that - most people in Mexico make a fraction of what US workers make, but 15% ?$&@@ Makes it uncomfortable to reduce the tip but it’s your money. But worth the trip. Plus the view is awesome.More

Our service tonight was amazing. Eugene was a great waiter. His service was very consistent and top tier. Our Bar tender was amazing as well along with the other waiters they kept us entertained throughout the night. The food was great and definitely worth your...buck. The portions were very fulfilling, we were full by the time entrees arrived I recommend visiting Crab House Cancun when ever you are in Cancun. Also it was my Birthday, I had a great time.More

First I’d like to say the service was AMAZING! We not only had the best servers (Eugene & Daniel) but the food was exquisite! Presentation, portion size, and flavor. The bartender Nathan also made me a specialty drink called the Sunrise. This is definitely a...great place to stop during your vacation. When you come ask for Eugene and Daniel and tell them I sent you. Happy vacationing.More

Don't know about corking, but consider Puerto Madero instead of Crab House, we tried both this week and Puerto is far superior!
