About Crab House Cafe
Dine in an idyllic ambience overlooking the Portland coast in relaxed, unpretentious surroundings, savour the finest flavours... Discover the hidden pearl of the South West.
I booked this restaurant for my mum's 70th birthday to dine at with my dad. Both my mum and dad adore sea food hence the booking. However I have never heard both of them rave about a restaurant so much including quality of food, service and wine. Do not miss the opportunity to eat here ,I will be returning to Portland just to experience it myself in the summer, absolutely top draw.
We had a fabulous Sunday lunch at the Crab House, the staff were both informative and friendly, the food and wine was superb. We fully recommend the oysters and the whole crab, delicious!
We both enjoyed our meal very much and will be regular diners.
We are so lucky to have this amazing seafood restaurant on our doorstep. The food and service never fail to impress. Wonderful fresh fish and a good selection of beers and wines, including their own mussel & oyster beers.
Spankingly fresh oysters; Mussels, razor clams, Brill and linguine divine; fish and chips refreshingly without batter - sublime chips too. Sticky toffee pudding mildly underwhelming but then we came here for the fish. Service could have been a touch more attentive. Thats nit picking as it is such a rare gem. We will be recommending and returning.
Lovely friendly service and fabulously cooked fish, all set in a cosy eating space. PERFECT. It's mine and my aunts favourite go to place to eat.
The food was good. Disappointed with the oysters but more because the bacon and cheese over powered. We also had a very annoying person sat on the table behind which didn’t help the atmosphere.
Fantastic, yet again! Will continue to return to this place.
Another amazing meal. The food is excellent and the staff and the atmosphere are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and as always we were made to feel very welcome. Can't wait to visit again.
Friendly, excellent food, good service. Our second visit and we are looking forward to our third.
Me & my friends had a fantastic meal, couldn’t fault the food or service Lovely fresh produce with great choice of menu, would recommend to any fish lover. BIG thank you to Dan for looking after us.
Second visit, after a disappointing first, was very enjoyable and glad we did return. Lovely evening with amazing food . Staff were very attentive and friendly.
Very nice food and interesting creations. Service is excellent. Location is great, just the weather was not good enough to sit outside and get the smell of sea and fish, I suppose this would be en even greater experience!
We visited for a birthday dinner, beautiful food and great atmosphere. Perfect service. Looking forward to returning in Summer.
Delicious meal in a relaxed unpretentious setting. A thoroughly enjoyable experience all round.
Really nice food and service in a great location. I think probably 20% too expensive.
Highly recommended. Fantastic fish dishes fit for any occasion. All delivered with first class service.
The best food and service for miles around. The food is always beyond expectation, super creative and mouth watering. The staff are always super friendly and helpful and so knowledgable about the dishes. It’s always a treat when we visit.
Excellent service from waiter.
Did not think the Huss curried as well as monk fish dish you have on sometimes. Fell apart a bit I thought. The posset was runny and is usually solid .
We had a great meal, the crab was delicious and we were glad we saved room for dessert. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The only restaurant when i'll order the same every time-oysters to start followed by a whole crab. Wonderful each and every time. Have never been disappointed with a meal at the Crab House. Staff are always friendly too
Lovely food and great service.
I absolutely love the food! Incredible oysters, great seafood and perfectly-cooked fresh fish. A good wine list and very efficient service too. It's my number one choice for birthdays and occasions ... I would come a lot more often if it was not so pricey (I know - good food can't be cheap).
A real gem. Wonderful service and a superb kitchen with the freshest of very local oysters and seafood.
