Without hesitation, the best seafood restaurant in Quito!!!! the food was fresh, the taste very delicious and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is nice, they have good music, and a good location. The best dish for me is “cangrejos encocados”. Unique and exotic flavor

I love crabs. had dined at Don Cangrejo previously in 2009. Then the quality of the food was excellent. On subsequent visits, I found the quality of the food was poorer. On this visit, it was not good at all. I will not go again.
