The food was amazing, but the prices were a bit high for the portion sizes. The place is very small but don't let that scare you away.

I had a really good spicy prawns dish and shared some crab mac’n cheese. The prawns were cooked wonderfully and really not so spicy, but tasty all the same. We tried to order a wine wine to drink with dinner but they didn’t have any...More

We went to the Klaw on recommendations from Trip Advisor and we conquer, great seafood! We enjoyed our waitress and although the food took a while for preparation it was all freshly prepared and perfect. We loved the friendly, cozy atmosphere of the restaurant.

This place is super tiny but has the most amazing food and service. Although it is small...it gives you a sense of being in a friends kitchen...you can’t go wrong here. This is a diamond in the rough!

We visited Dublin for a few days and this was by far our favourite place.. And cheapest meal.. Wished we’d have stumbled upon it on our first day as we’d have returned.. Quirky little place, nice staff and lovely food.. Enjoyed the prosecco too..!

I’d walked past several times and finally hopped in during a happy hour of sorts at 4:30 on a Sunday. Only a few items were available until 5. I passed the time with 6 glorious oysters from Conamara. Nice big plump briney slightly sweet. And...More
