My spouse and I visited Dalian in July 2009. Next to our hotel was this restaurant called Crabber House, which, among other things, served crabbe (of course). We decided to try it, since none of us had been eating that much crabbe, and when we do, we usually eat it cold, with white bread, mayo, aioli, lots of salt and pepper, and avocado. We went for their set menu, not really knowing how many dishes we would get and so on (language difficulties) but several of the dishes seemed very tempting. My spouse thought we would get four different dishes, in the end I think we had eight or nine (a pleasant surprise!). And they were all very good! Several crabbe dishes (among them crabbe sushi), a curry pizza, soup (with sea cucumber - not my favorite - but interesting to try in China - it was soft and didn´t really taste anything), and also a chicken dish. Dessert and coffee/tea was of course included. To sum up, the food was a fusion between Western, Japanese and Chinese cooking.
In the end, we were very satisfied. I think the price of the set menu was 70 RMB - definitely value for money. The service was also good.
