We’ve eaten here twice and each time the food and service were excellent. Top quality seafood cooked beautifully. Booking is recommended as it’s been super busy on both occasions. Scallops, potted shrimp, squid and mackerel were all delicious.

Always a warm and friendly welcome at the Crabshak. My fav is still the tempura squid and anchovy scallops. But I do get tempted by the specials. Best to book as it’s always busy. Thanks for another great lunch.

Yes. We could not get a table recently when we went at the last minute so I would make a reservation.
