Mr Crab seafood grill caught our eye when walking past the door on our way to our hotel. It looked clean and there was a good range of seafood dishes on offer. The waiter was happy to show us the menu and when we told him of my husband's allergies, he said that there wouldn't be a problem. My husband very kindly agreed to forgo his usual steak and so we booked a table for about 5pm on the following Saturday night. Very glad we did as when we arrived, the restaurant was very busy. The chef was good enough to come out and discuss how plain my husband wanted his fish cooked and I ordered lobster soup, followed by a tuna salad. The soup came quickly and was very tasty- been a while since I have had a lobster soup that good. Our mains, however, did take a while- in fact 35 minutes due, we were told, to a mix up in the kitchen. Our waiter Levi, a polite, professional and personable young man, was very apologetic and offered to take the price of our drinks off the bill. He had previously spoken to us when we had come in the day before and seemed genuinely concerned about our wait. However, my husband was very happy, the fish was cooked exactly how he had asked and I really enjoyed my tuna salad; again the tuna was cooked perfectly. We were very impressed with the way our meals were presented and, looking around, the meals of other diners too. We didn't have dessert and to be honest, didn't really look as our mains had filled us up. If we had been staying longer in Amsterdam, we would have definitely returned.

Livi was our server and provided top-notch guidance through the evening. When we inquired about specific fish, we were advised that if we hadn't had this one variety before then we shouldn't order it as most don't care for it. The advice of a nice Dutch beer was a treat as well.

We visited the restaurant twice. First time we shared for 2 a sea food platter with grilled fishes for 80 €. Excellent food and sufficient. Second time I selected grilled lobster (excellent) BUT as starter we had oysters. Unfortunately both of us who had those oysters (which look fresh) were sick the day after. This can happen anywhere but so unpleasant....

We visited for lunch on New Year's Eve. At Mr. Crab, we found a wide range of seafood to choose from. Whilst the service was slow at times, the food was nicely presented, prepared and very enjoyable. The portion size was more than generous so much so we could not finish our platter.
