I have given the Crab House 3 stars: the fish deserves 5 stars but the service only 1 star. My husband and I have frequented the Crab House for several years now and have noticed a decline in service and the once pleasant and enjoyable experience can no longer be guaranteed. In fact, we no longer choose to dine there... More

We managed to get a booking from a friendly waiter for the following day, after finding it initially full. Our table wasnt 100% comfortable, prices are not ' cafe' and a smile wouldn't go amiss However, the food was superb with some of the sweetest oysters Ive ever tasted. Chef came and signed a cook book, with a joke but... More

Been goint to Weymouth for years with the kids and always wanted to go here but difficult with children. I have to say disappointed when I did. The choice on the menu was limited with 5 or 6 options and the options they had were not your normal selections for a fish resteraunt. I wanted a whole fish, either Sea... More

We had dinner here last Thursday. The atmosphere is easy and relaxed and the restaurant overlooks an oyster farm. Great fresh ingredients, skilfully prepared. Service was pleasant and unfussy. Go!!

Tried this establishment for a change. Mixed reviews by people I know, some of which had meals there some time ago. This is a seafood restaurant located on the fleet lagoon off the causeway to Portland, it has quite a rustic appearance to it but don't let that fool you. We were sat by a window with views of the...

What a find, one of the best seafood restaurants I've ever eaten in. The Crab House Cafe is full of rustic, quirky charm and you couldn't find a better view, overlooking the Fleet from the charming garden and terrace. But it's the seafood that people come for and I can see why. The menu, which changes daily depending on the... More

Ive been looking forward to sampling the Crab House Cafe menu for sometime; having only visited Portland/Weymouth a handful of times. We prepared and booked a party of 6 to celebrate my wife's 43rd birthday. We arrived in good time and was initially seen too a table outside as ours wasn't quite ready - not an issue, the weather was... More
