My second time of eating at the crabshell a few years apart and I still think the place is great. Friendly staff and good quality fair. The Rioja was a blinder and definitely one of the best I have had in a restaurant for that price in some time. Keep it up - I am sure we will be back

Lovely place, lovely people, lovely location. It's great by day but takes on a whole new dimension when the sun goes down. Can't wait to go back!

I have to say this is lovely. However my meal was cold. It was changed quickly without fuss and was delicious. It would not put me off going back. Wish we had last night instead eating somewhere near by dreadful.

Great service from keen and attentive staff (and management) - discrete but on hand. Good choice from the menu and bar, and excellent service considering how busy it was.

Had lunch on Friday. Food served 12 until 3 and 6 to 930 in the evenings. Rustic feeling to the place, plenty of tables. Staff very attentive and polite. I had the steak, cost £14 with sweet potato chips. Excellent! Smallish car park adjacent to the restaurant. Located right on the waters edge, with stunning views.
