The unassuming crab joint, Crab & Crew, at Al Ain Palace has quickly become a BB favourite for yummy and affordable seafood and licensed drinks. Specialising in custom seafood boils, customers can pick their ‘catch’ from a variety of fresh seafood including crabs, sea bream, salmon, mussels, kingfish, lobster, and prawns, choose their sauce (we love the Cajun and the Crab & Crew special sauce) and their spice level. Get dressed and ready in your apron and gloves (you’ll need ‘em) and enjoy the perfect messiness of it, as the bucket is tipped out straight on to the table in front of you. And to complement your combo meal you can enjoy an ice-cold pint of beer, colourful cocktail, or refreshing iced tea.
BB+ members will receive a massive 25% off the total bill (not including promotions) making this an incredibly affordable ocean feast!
