Tips for you
After trying several other restaurants at the Crab Market in Kep, I found Holy Crab and have not been disappointed. Several other Crab Market restaurants left a poor impression on my palate whereas this restaurant was just the opposite. Holy Crab also has a broad menu with many selections other than crab. I've now been there a half dozen times and each meal has been very good. The dishes are well presented, the staff is quite friendly and attentive (unlike some of the Crab Market restaurants). Though I prefer crab in a natural state, most of these restaurants doctor up the crab to the point of only tasting the spices and sauces they are cooked in. Holy Crab has several crab dishes that bing out the crab flavor. Definitely worth a visit. Just a bit more expensive than some restaurants but well worth the extra dollar or two. If you only have a day or two in Kep, Holy Crab should be on your restaurant list.
