Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely fantastic. Do not miss this place if you are in the area. We are here twice on our holiday. It’s right next to the Outrigger resort. We have the garlic and chilli sauce. Excellent! Affordable, fresh and tasty.

Off the beaten track, we decided to try the crab shack based on other reviews and it was a great little spot. Amazing Mojito ! And tried the Kokoda (I’ve had better) and fish tacos - were yum.

Amazing food & service. Was a bit windy up there so I recommend making a reservation with a seat under the cover. I cant believe how much wind & rain they blocked out.

Beautiful little restaurant right on the beach. Food was quick and really tasty - seating outdoors and great view along the beach at sunset.

Exceptional dining experience! The food was absolutely delicious, bursting with flavor and beautifully presented. Fish tacos were the best I’ve ever had! The setting was perfect, and the service was impeccable. Can't wait to go back!

The Fiji Coconut curry crab is a must. The crab was perfect with a bula salad, some rice and don't forget the roti to soak up all the sauce. Too good to leave. The service is friendly and atmosphere is casual and welcoming. Be prepared...to get messy but it's worth every bit.More

This was our first trip to Fiji, and the Crab Shack became our go to spot while staying nearby. Be sure to go with friends and splurge on the 3 tier platter, the seafood is so fresh and delicious. The staff was super friendly and...we can’t wait to come back.More

We visited Crab Shack a couple of times while we stayed on the Coral Coast. It is very simple, with picnic tables on a grassed area overlooking the beach, but has such a nice vibe. The food is very good, although the prices were a...little high. Would definitely recommend for lunch or dinner. Bookings recommendedMore

After a hot day of reef walking and snorkeling, we were excited to visit the Crab Shack to sample their cuisine. We were not disappointed as the Bu Salad and Kokoda entrees were tantalising and the Mud crab was exceptional in the way it was...prepared and presented at our table. The wine list was welcome in its variety and price point. The relaxed and basic character of the restaurant suited us on this occasion. Take insect repellent as the proximity to the sea and flouro lights certainly attracted the mosquitoes and midges.More

Visited for dinner - we popped over the night before to make the booking so make sure you plan ahead. Great casual dining spot overlooking the water with picnic tables and fairy lights. Husband had the impressive mud crab while I had the fish tacos....Both dishes were tasty and the service was quick. Thanks for a lovely dinner!More

The crab shack was just divine throughout the whole meal. The food was extraordinary and tasts were amazing. Drinks were second to none. Beautiful outlook right on the beach. And the bar and grill across the road owned and run by the same lo Al...people is just as good. Highly recommend the crab shack as a fantastic place and delicious food. Five star all round d. Vinuka. Thank you for excellent food. Hard to get sometimes.More

I wish I could comment on food. After waiting for 1,5-2h for food we left hungry and angry. The staff told us about 30 minute wait for food that essentially never arrived. No apologies and no update on our order was provided by staff.

I bet the people that give bad reviews enjoy KFC, Subway, taco bell and McDonalds. If I'm wrong the you adore American Chinese food

Love this place. Mud crab at F$70 cooked however you want to. We ordered 3 plates: boiled, garlic butter (a bit diff than my expectation, as they put some other sauce in it so it’s not pure garlic & butter only), garlic chilli (my fave)....One of the plates came with 1 head but 4 claws. We noticed they’re smaller ones and isn’t as meaty so prob they’re trying to compensate. I’d suggest you standardise the weight/size to better control the quality. The other 2 we asked for female w roe if possible and they did deliver - they’re amazing!! We tried the fish taco, they come with roti style bread rather than corn but that’s fine/understandable to have a bit of fijian twist to the dish. Will visit again next time we’re in Fiji!More

We reserved the three times we went there. You will be taking a risk by not booking a table at peak times. Especially between 7pm-9pm
