Its interesting to read the extremes of reviews for this place. I really liked it. Having visited Singapore a few times, I haven't yet found a better chili crab - I guess for my taste. The black pepper crab isn't as good as I have found elsewhere, but I go here to sit outside and eat crab, sauce and buns.... More

Everything tasted terrible. You get better taste in any coffee shop. Some dishes were just weird - bitter, too salty... The only thing passable was prawns - which were boiled.

The seafood was fresh, beautifully cooked and well presented. Everyone in our party thought it was superb.

Made a reservation for a business group but we were seated under a fan at dusk with bright lights which attracted all sorts of bugs and we could not keep them out of our hair or drinks and so we abandoned all thought of eating here, also they offered one price for locals and a far higher price for non-locals...

To eat crab and really enjoy it you have to get down and dirty. There's no way to not use your fingers. Without a proper protective bib you will ruin or at least stain whatever you happen to be wearing. Bibs are thoughtfully provided and discreetly tied around your neck here at Long Beach. And they are very necessary since... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend and aware it would be expensive. We specifically wanted to try the Chilli Crab and the black pepper one but it was hard to judge how expensive these would be from the menu. The menu is very long and none of the set menus included both of these for... More

Hands down the best crab experience you can have in Singapore. If it gets better than this, you might have to revisit your standards. Wasabi prawn, Alaskan black pepper King crab or just the traditional Singapore style, served with ice cold Singaporean Tiger beer and staff that will make you want to go back two days later (just because you...

We read the previous reviews & were looking forward to dining here. What a disappointment. The restaurant is very tired looking with dowdy tablecloths, no napkins provided, plastic plates and some of the worst wait staff we have ever experienced. We chose a 5 course set menu for 4 of us and dishes were plonked down on the table in... More

I love the food here. From the soup all the way to dessert. Each dish was well executed - taste, presentation. The lobster dish with cereal was worth the extra calories. The chili crab is as I remember how chili crab should be made. The black pepper crab was rightly named Famous Black Pepper Crab :) The steamed fish was... More

This was one of the best seafood meals I have ever had in my life. Along with Restaurant Andre (where I ate during my last visit) this is my favorite place to eat in Singapore. We skipped drinks because we had just come from the rooftop bar at MBS and ordered the food straightaway. We ordered one of their signature... More
