After a walk along the Fleet we dropped in past on a sunny day. We dined outside in an area which has a beach atmosphere.... parasols, old boats turned into flower beds etc
We had a started of oysters, followed by mackerel.. all delicious and well presented. Medium priced.

Tumble down shacks off the main road but the oysters, the best I have had outside of St Vaast la Hogue. The fish superb and very fresh. I would definately return when I have more time in Weymouth.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. We discovered it by chance and were so glad we tried it out.

Don't let the uninspiring 'seafood shack' style exterior fool you - the restaurant is actually quite chic inside. But what you really come here for are the oysters, as fresh as they possibly can be: straight from the oyster farm in the bay right in front of the restaurant. We had the cream and bacon oysters with a crab salad starter, and everything was delicious. They have some quality champagnes and white wines too, if you're celebrating.

Oh, and there is outdoor seating next to the water for sunny days. Bliss!

We had arranged to meet our friends in Weymouth for lunch as part of a days visit to the seaside resort and how lucky were we to have chosen Sunday 11th November. There was a beautiful clear blue sky with wonderful warm sunshine, so warm we were able to eat outside!
Our friends had recommended the Crab House Cafe and they did not let us down. The service was good, young polite cheerful staff who were happy to help. The menu is all fish but one would expect that at a seafood restaurant. We shared a dozen oysters for starters, the first time in 56 years I had braved them and yes I enjoyed them. For main course I selected Brill and it was delicious, we all enjoyed our meals and sat in the wonderful sunshine. I ventured inside the restaurant for a peep and loved the fact you can see the chefs cooking the food and the atmosphere seemed buzzy, we will definitely return and sit inside next time, we just had to sit in the sun on 11th November!

From the outside this is not very inviting, looking more like a ramshackle shed than a restaurant, but looks aren't everything and once inside we were greeted by friendly staff and shown to a table. There was a fabulous array of fish on display and the smells emanating from the kitchen were mouthwateringly delicious! We had a wonderful fishy meal, freshly cooked and served with a smile. The food was fabulous and there was plenty of it. The wine was good and complimented the fish well. We rounded off with lovely puddings which again were freshly prepared; there was nothing shop bought about any of this! All in all, an experience we will be repeating at the earliest opportunity!
