A good friend who had eaten there twice thought it was overpriced and not worth the cost. I don't disagree with him in that it is very expensive. However when you get to visually inspect the fish that is going to be cooked for you and if you have food sensitivities like me and you are able to get your... More

A lovely Birthday treat at this shack overlooking Cesil beach. Much more than a cafe! Locally sourced absolutely fresh seafood, beautifully presented, interesting flavours that did not overpower the delicious fish. The smoked sea trout starter was so good, followed by sea bream with Cajun spices and sour cream, delicious. Only a couple of deserts suitable for gluten free but... More

She had great fun cracking the crab with the utensils provided including a hammer. I had plaice that was delightful. We will definitely visit again next time we are in... More

So glad we finally visited the Crab house last time we tried it was closed, being a Monday. We arrived late for our booking, but were greeted by a lovely girl who showed us to our table. We decided to share a Crab and my husband started with the fish soup. We had great fun cracking open the Crab with... More
