This place is really good. It's very small so your lucky to stumble upon available seating. The staff is great and work to get people in and out. I love the lobster roll and was envious of all the other dishes I saw. The lobster nachos looked fabulous. I wish I could have tried it all! Maybe the sampler platter... More

After learning about the Guinness and oyster combination advertised in Ireland, my family wanted to try it, so we did a quick Yelp search for seafood restaurants around Temple Bar and came across Klaw. We were lucky to snag the last 4-top table in the teeny, tiny restaurant on a Friday night around 7pm. We had actually walked by the... More

Yes, the place is very small and for first few minutes the smell is awful (especially when guys start frying something). But the food is fantastic - crabs, oysters, prawns - everything is absolutely fresh and tasty. Also, I recommend crab on toast - very nice thing. Oysters - I liked most those from Gallaway. We visited the Klaw twice... More

We almost missed this wonderful place as it's tucked in between two bigger places. The food here was amazing! Very fresh and the wait staff were very helpful in recommending dishes for us to try. The portions were a good size and generously priced. Will definitely pop back before we go home!

Travelled down from Belfast for the day and were looking forward to eating at Klaw, arrived around 8pm and the place was really busy and smelled amazing- a great sign! Unfortunately when we got seated and got round to ordering, half of the menu was off. No crab, no claws, no mac and cheese, etc. We ordered some chowder and... More

Saw Klaw on the web, couldn't book so just turned up. Very small and simple however the oysters were excellent and the whole crab even better. We arrived at 5 and by the time we had finished people were queuing to get in. If you visit Dublin, give this delightful place a go, you will not be disappointed

Definitely consider Klaw if you value good food with no fuss. We had a lovely seafood meal with a bottle of French white wine this evening!

I was very pleased with my visit at Klaw. We ordered a sample plate of oysters and got some awesome oysters, both natural, torched and dressed. The Bloody Mary was great and the one we ordered came with an oyster as well! The lobster roll was also very good, even though I prefer the rolls that has less creamy stuffing,... More

I ordered delivery for the second time (after having a bad 1st experience with crab claws being mostly inedible) and it has really solidified this restaurant as poor in my mind. I ordered what I think was a new side-kale and spinach salad with chickpeas. The salad had no kale or chickpeas and was basically a few spinach leaves for... More
