While staying at Hikkaduwa and Hotel Tranz Hikka in a rainy evening we decided to eat our dinner at the hotel. It was not a disapointment at all. Very tasty crab bisquit and big prawns for the main course were both very good. Along with a cold beer, life is not bad!

First time you go there, you're thinking "wow, looks like an expensive place!" Then you get the bill and tell the waiter you wanted to pay for the whole table, not just yourself. He's confused because that's the whole bill.
My favorites here: lobster curry, Sri Lankan style prawns, crab soup. But really, everything is very good.
Great service, too!

The menu choice, meal quality and service all add up to a very good experience. However, you do pay for that pleasure. The value is OK although the absolute price may cause you a small intake of breath.

My family and I visited The Crab, which is part of the 4 Star Hikka Tranz hotel, as an alternative to the usual buffet style lunch offered at the main hotel. The restaurant is 10m from the beach and has no walls, which offers a unique dining experience. The restaurant could do with playing some traditional music to add to the beautiful scenery, but other than that, the environment was perfect. In terms of cost, the prices are a little high, but not ridiculously so, but for what we were served, incredible value for money. Two of us had two different Crab dishes, and to say the taste was amazing, would be an understatement. We have travelled to Sri Lanka over 27 times, and our dishes were the best Crab we have tasted. Fresh, flavoursome, and very generous portions. The staff were very attentive, professional and courteous. All in all, we would highly recommend The Crab.
