I was dissapointed with the King Crag (Centolla), my son and I found it had no flavour at all.
Also the place was very crowded, heavily decorated and too much going on. Not for people with sensitive emotions towards animals as the crabs are hand picked by turists and staff hold them dangling from the legs for them to take photos. Animal lovers beware!

This restaurant is a must go in Ushuaia. The food is delicious and the service is great. It's a family owned business and it's operated by themselves.

Specialized in king crab, this super simple restaurant gives you incredible fresh food for a very reasonable price.
The owner is also in charge of jumping over his boat and catch in the channel all the kids crabs you will see ( and pick) inside the place.
There are, of course more options, the merluza negra should be on your list only 60 km away south from the coast and an their way to Antartica they find this amazing fish 1500 Mts deep.
Pick a reasonable white wine and enjoy this alternative. You will never regret

Had to wait for a table in this popular restaurant, but worth the wait, Excellent, fresh crab, served with (needed) assistance from the waitress, who was happy to help. We had never had whole crab (see picture above), just Alaskan crab legs and soft-shell crab.
Amazing experience I do not think we would be able to repeat.
