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.

Very nice occasion along the waterfront . Service was excellent as was the food . We got a sea food platter to share with side salad and rice . The grilled sea. Bass was off the hook.
Only down side they did not recognize my wife's birthday I had in the reservation notes

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。

We ate here on the first night of our holiday in Barcelona and was very happy. I am wheat and dairy free and the restaurant were very helpful and produce an allergens menu for me and worked with me.

The seafood is lovely and plentiful and the staff were just the right amount of attentive.

I went with family and friends for my sons birthday dinner whilst visiting Barcelona and everything about this place was perfect. Food was perfect and service was just lovey!
I called the day before and asked them to prepare a cake... again it was perfect!

Everything was very good and flavorful. Service was exceptional. We thought however that one of the specialties of the day was overpriced and we were misinformed about the type of paella they served. In general it was a good choice.

Fun location, but service was not commensurate with prices. Also, despite having received confirmation of my reservation, they insisted we did not have one when we arrived. They seated us anyway, but were annoyed.

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.

On the Internet they advertise the €30 menu. When we arrived it was a la carte. The total cost including wine was about $100 euro. The meal was worth that but we were expecting to pay less.

I booked a table for 20 people for a business dinner and was delighted to be seated in a private area and had a couple of waiters dedicated to our table. The manager recommended dishes for a large group with the option for everyone to choose their own main meals too. The service was great, glasses were frequently topped up and the food was delicious. Thanks for a great night!
