The atmosphere in Crabe Marteau is great. The service is very good and the waiters are friendly and helpful. If you order the crab, you have to work for your supper and mallets are the tool of choice. The crab meat is very tasty, and for those lazy beings among us, there are several very good dishes that can be ordered with the crab already de-shelled.

We decided come here for a last minute late lunch at 2pm. They close at 3 and accommodated us. Staff was good and accommodating. I had the spider crab which was awesome. If you want crab, obviously is the place for crab in Paris!

Fairly small, cramped and loud. That said it’s an institution and if you like crab, it’s a “must eat at” when in Paris. Service is purposely quirky and adds a bit of fun character to an already semi weird dining experience.
Soup was excellent too.
Expect a hefty tab but don’t shy away. GO!

So this place was right next to our hotel. We went for brunch and had a really awesome meal. The potions were great and the manager was super friendly. He came to talk to us and showed my friends how to crush the crabs. The sources and creams were very nice. And the atmosphere was great. We had a great meal and the food was make quick we didn't have to wait long.

Simply put, GO FOR THE CRAB! My wife had oysters and then Lieu, whilst I had crabmeat on a potato base, followed by Lotte. Everything was delicious, but we were the ONLY people not beating their crab with wooden hammers.......
Staff friendly and efficient, and the white wine they recommended very reasonably priced and pretty good.
