About The Cracking Crab
The latest addition to The Winking Prawn Group is the Cracking Crab in Polzeath, Cornwall. With a name like “The Cracking Crab” you can guess what we do? Crab - and a lot of it! There’s seafood by the bucket load and juicy West Country steaks off the grill, so why not check out the menu? The bar is always fully stocked with chilled local beers, ciders and wine, perfect out on the sundeck soaking up the views
Absolutely fabulous ! Great setting, the food and service matched the setting
Fab meal thank you!
Me and my husband had a wonderful dinner on Sunday. We got to the restaurant a bit early and were made to feel very welcome with drinks and shown our table. When we ordered the service was fast and superb! Three courses and drinks in 1 hour! I’m impressed, I didn’t feel rushed, just well looked after with attentive and friendly staff. Amazing and would highly recommend
Great evening, excellent service, we were on a second sitting and felt looked after even though table wasn’t ready immediately, not the CC fault. Food was amazing, quick to order and efficiently served. Already recommended to friends.
Super friendly staff. Prompt service despite it being busy. Particular warm welcome for our two boys. Gorgeous views.
Nothing more to say than all round excellence
Have always loved going to the The Cracking Crab and again it didn't disappoint
Terrific evening. Staff attentive.
Not great food sorry
Sorry to hear that Tina, was there something specific you didn't like?
Very good evening with wonderful service and great atmosphere Many thanks
This was our last night in Cornwall after 3 weeks staying locally. Our meal was superb- we couldn’t fault it. The staff were all helpful and knowledgable. Again, without fault. Thank for rounding off our holiday in such a brilliant way 😃
Good food with a lovely view. The staff really make the experience.
Great location watching the surfers as you eat. Service was very good . We wanted a little more time between courses which the staff reacted to straight away. Staff all friendly and clearly hardworking.Food was very good too. Lovely evening.
Food delicious. The young guy we had serving us was excellent and very friendly and helpful. Also when we came back for lunch another day and we realised we had forgotten to order our 7 year olds food as all the others arrived, they got her meal done and out to us very quickly. Highly recommend going there.
I would say the only negative was that service was a bit too quick. Within an hour we had ordered and eaten starters and mains, which felt a little rushed. We prefer a more leisurely meal.
Sorry about that Claire! We will take note!
We all really enjoyed our dining experience at Cracking Crab. Excellent service, wonderful location and great food. Would strongly recommend it to anyone.
Fantastic evening, friendly service from all the waiters and waitresses, excellent food with a wide choice for all appetites and topped off by a lovely sunset. Thank you!
Thourouly enjoyed the whole experience - it was relaxed fun food with great views . The crab was ace 😊 Room for a few tweaks but we all loved it Nothing beats eating seafood watching the sea we ll be back x
Wonderful seafood, fantastic service and great ambience
Lovely restaurant with good food, the fruit de merr was excellent. The starters however are very poor value for money, small portions for an above average cost. For example the 'sardines' on the menu should have been called 'sardine' as there was only one and considering how cheap sardines are a bit of a con! Service was very pleasant and we weren't rushed.
A fabulous meal, beautiful scenery, we were early for our table and had a drink while we waited and were very well looked after by the staff, will be returning on our next trip to Polzeath
Again a lovely meal and evening
Family beach cafe with stunning outlook. Food is plentiful and a good average on quality and presentation. Service is prompt and willing. Decor is different and appropriate for a beach cafe but doesn't add to its ambiance. Early evening mealtimes are clearly aimed at young families and noisy.
We were a large group with 6 kids at 8:30 in the evening.. the staff were so friendly & accommodating. They made it a truly memorable evening with their efficiently & thoughtfulness. Plus the food was AMAZING - best fruits de mer I've ever had. I cannot recommend The Cracking Crab enough!!
Fab food, gorgeous location... the perfect way to end the day
