Fresh, beautifully prepared fish & shellfish. Very casual; good service. The restaurant gas its own oyster farm. We had oysters Italiano & scallops, both of which were delicious. We followed with beautiful lemon sole. Overall, an excellent meal.

Good food, great service, wanted to have some local caught fish for dinner and this place was right next to our campsite. A great find, highly recommended.

Met up with our friends who have moved down here. Had lunch on Friday 26 August at 2pm. Wow what a view and what a setting. Sun was booming down, what a beautiful day. As for the food, it was beautiful. There were 4 adults and 3 kids. A range of starters, fish barjis, scallops and mackerel mouse, all beautiful.... More

Thought it gave a vibe of Tourist attraction rather than a sustainable fish restaurant with surprisingly high prices. £197 for 4 adults and two kids with one bottle of house wine and one beer for lunch was we felt at the high price range! Saying that the food was nice but service was rushed with no real in-between time between... More

After seeing fantastic reviews for the Crab house Cafe we decided to dine there whilst on our family holiday. It's has a very quirky beach hut feel. My children aged 17, 10 and 4 are big fish eaters so this was a nice treat for them. This isn't somewhere to visit if you have fussy eaters or are on a... More

This place serves the freshest seafood in a laid-back shack setting. The menu is simple but expertly done, friendly staff and great wine make this place well worth our journey and our 3 year wait since we were last here - might not wait so long for the next one!

Arrived in the UK over the weekend and made a booking for Wednesday lunch through the web as they are closed on Monday and Tuesday. Got a confirmation. Arrived in good time, and the management did finally agree we could stay. Later on found out that they had sent a mail on the same day mid morning that they are... More

Excellent food and a good house stout but you must like sea food which is superb. Good service and a superb location on Chesil beach

On a rainy day in August we got a short-notice table and had the most delicious lunch. You only have a whole crab once in a while and this is the place to have it - be brave and bash away!

We booked well in advance following trip adviser reviews. We had an early sitting and were seated quickly. The décor was in keeping with the rustic ambience, the prep area was behind a viewing gallery where you could see some of the delicious looking oysters and provides proof of how fresh the catch is. The service was very quick, and... More
