    Excellent quality food. Service was very good and efficient. Have been several times. Best seating upstairs and outside on a beautiful evening, overlooking the sea.

    Majority of staff are cool and it's hard to get their services, they won't come to us and ask and we are hard to get their attention. Frankly, apart from the atmosphere, vs price charged, food and service has room to be improved

    We booked a table for business occasion due to its decent view and reputation for one of the best Paella in town. Unfortunately, it was the worst meal and experience we had in Spain. Food was really bad (not fresh or dried iberico ham/ disgusting tomato and vegetable salad/ overlooked grilled lobster/ Paella was bland) Service staff was very unprofessional, never offered us menu unless we requested for it. They were serving dessert while all of us were still in the middle of main course. Such humiliating experience even my clients were asking what’s going on. Spent hundreds of euros for such disappointment. Sorry to say but this is a tourist trap, please avoid at all costs!!

    The service and food was amazing!! This restaurant was recommended to us by a local, as we wanted to stay away from the tourist trap restaurants with mediocre food. Cangrejo Loco did not disappoint. Tony, our server, was great and very hospitable.

    The wait staff's attitude was rather poor and the service was non-existent. I do not recommend this restaurant

    I apologized to my family after this lunch. Unpolished wait staff, lack luster plating, and poorly timed dishes. Upon paying, our server even quietly added additional gratuity by ringing up a different total.

    We have just returned from Barcelona, a ladies trip to celebrate 7 friends celebrating our 50th birthday's. I had searched for a Restaurant on the Web. Food did not disappoint, service average, atmosphere a little quiet probably due to the heavy rain all day and night. People probably stayed inland rather than sea front to eat. We did get a window table upstairs as requested when I booked the table. So overall quite a good experience.

    We ordered the seafood paella and it was on a little salty side but it was perfect to our liking. The alcohol in sangria was also little strong so a glass would have been enough for us.

    Excellent restaurant. Ask a table on the upper floor for sea view.

    Just a fantastic seafood restaurant on the waterfront. They have everything. Huge menu. Excellent paella. Highly recommend it. Its a bit out from city center. We took the city bus. Get a T-10 pass at any metro station. Works on buses, metros, and trains. Taxis are reasonable.

About the restaurant

"In the city of Barcelona alongside the sea, we find this spectacular restaurant. It is a select and elegant place with different atmosphere, because El Cangrejo Loco has 5 terraces enjoying spectacular views of the sea and the port, another two terraces which are covered and heated for the winter season, and three excellent dining rooms that also enjoy these wonderful views.

Its menu is composed of fish from the beach, seafood, rices and meats and has a spaceous and excellent climate-controlled cellar, where you will find more than 500 references of Spanish and foreign wines, cavas and champagne.

In addition, this restaurant is an ideal place for family, business, or other kinds of celebrations, because it makes 4 magnificent private event rooms available to its guests."
