I first visited the Crab House Cafe 3 years ago with my partner, now 3 years on we decided to celebrate our anniversary by going back there again. The staff are great and really helpful and the food is fantastic. We had a really great night and ended up having to get a taxi home! If you love sea food... More

Second time I have visited here, this time whilst a group of us were on a camping weekend in Osmington Mills. 8 friends and a 1 year old who fine out frequently and really enjoy good food. There was only one place to come, the Crab house Cafe! Great selection of starters, I had a starter of cockles with garlic... More

We first visited the Crab House Café in summer 2014 while in Dorset on holiday and enjoyed it so much that we decided we would visit it every time we were on holiday in the area. The restaurant is closed Mondays and Tuesdays, but you are able to leave your phone number on an answerphone to request a table, and... More

Really great food, we had the lobster special and the full crab along with scallops and mackerel for entree - you do pay top prices here at £39 for the lobster but the food is great and the relaxed rustic feel to the place only adds to the experience. I've only rated it 4 stars as the prices are top... More

A mixed bag this place; expensive for what it is - basically a beach side shack overlooking Portland Harbour / Chesil beach. Service was friendly and good BUT main courses were very slow. After sharing fantastically fresh oysters to start (which come to the table with lovely granary bread) we were encouraged to think that mains were coming soon as... More

Had a great night last night at the Crab Cafe. Saw the Trip Advisor recommendations and thought we should give it a go and it did not disappoint. We had half a crab to share for starters and it was lovely, followed by Huss and Lemon Sole. Staff were very friendly, food tasted fantastic. Only reason this is a four... More

Finally got around to eating here after several neighbours recommendations. Certainly lived up to scratch. Food excellent and service 100%. Beautiful location, look forward to returning.

This is our favourite place in the world to eat! Whenever we go for a meal elsewhere, which is good... it has never been able to be quite as good as a meal at the Crab House! My boyfirend and I came here for dinner on Friday evening. We chose to sit outside as the weather was gorgeous. Drinks of... More

We arrived here over halfway through service and despite there being tables available both inside and out we were turned away with no reason offered.

This restaurant looks a bit "out there" when you arrived .... yes it is a shack ... but don't be fooled! The oysters were the best ever fished straight out of their beds and the crab (chinese style) was tremendous. One enormous crab between us kept us quiet for a good 30 minutes. If you want a dining experience then... More
