A lovely evening enjoying a whole crab and a monkfish saddle. Delicious food and a great atmosphere which brought us back for the third time. The oysters fresh from The Fleet are beautiful.

Superb high quality as always - we are very much enjoying working our way through your menu, and are yet to find one we don’t really like yet!

Hi It was lovely - the food was excellent and the service was really good - every member of staff we met were friendly and efficient - rather a nice change! We were looking for a new fish restaurant since the Riverside has closed and we have found it - we will be back - soon! Sandra

We had a lovely evening. I was particularly impressed that I was phoned to ask if we would like to change our reservation. I had booked a table outside but the weather had changed considerably, and was asked if we would prefer to eat inside. We remained outside. Food was excellent, and the service was provided by really delightful staff. Probably one of the best meals we have ever had!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, we both felt that the service was friendly, helpful and professional. The food was the best I have ever tasted, to be able to watch your food being prepared from the huge selection of fresh fish by the chef and his assistant was brilliant. The atmosphere was very relaxed and we had fun watching fellow diners attempting to get to their crab with a hammer and fork. It is not cheap by any means but the whole package is more than value for money. We will definitely be back when we next visit Portland.

We waited for 10 mins to be offered a drink, food was served on a cold plate and was itself barely warm. Service indifferent, a smile and friendly tone of voice would have been nice. Food itself was good but none of us thought it was special in any way. I’ve had much better fish elsewhere at a lower price. Idyllic ambience is not the same as poor service and savour the finest flavours does not excuse cold food. An email about the appalling traffic would have been nice. Yes, we were slightly late but it took us 90 mins to make a 25 min journey. In the days of email this would have been easy. Sadly we will not be returning.

Had a really lovely evening. The food was delicious and the staff very helpful and friendly. Only slight and silly complaint was that we sat on the bench and with no cushion it really was rather uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend to friends and have already done so.

Excellent. Very impressed that you withdrew a desert because it was not up to your high standards. Best Turbot we have ever had.

What an amazing restaurant! We have always wanted to visit, but never got round to going. As a special treat before emigrating to Canada we thought we would have to finally do it! We were not disappointed, it was an awesome night sat in the boat. Thank you for the fantastic food and fantastic service.

Been on my bucket (and spade) list for a year or two and we finally got there. Had oysters and crab and it certainly lived up to expectations! Thanks.

We drive from Bath to eat with you because we rate your food and friendly service so highly. The scallops were excellent and my silver mullett just as good.....faultless. The vegetables served with the main were so good I could have eaten a plate full on there own. My regards to the team and keep doing what you do !

This was the second time we have dined at The Crab House Cafe and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The food and service was of a very high standard. Although there is only one option for children it was delicious and both my little ones polished it off. We were sat by the kitchen and really enjoyed watching the chefs at work. I would certainly recommend The Crab House to friends (and have done so). I look forward to returning for a third time during our next holiday to Weymouth.

We had booked an outside table, but the weather turned. The restaurant rang us without prompting and offered a sheltered table, at nearly the same time. Very imoressive!
