Oysters were delicious and the wait staff was amazing. Don't walk past this hidden gem on the streets of Dublin without walking in.

Loved our lunch at Klaw! Food was delicious and the staff was so kind. Definitely pop in for some Irish oysters and ray "wings" when you're walking around Temple Bar.

If you love seafood you MUST go to Klaw in Temple Bar. It's very small so easy to miss. The best lobster roll I've ever had, great bloody Mary's and super fresh, delicious oysters! Go there and you won't be disappointed!

Nope- we walked right in and were served. It's a small place, so if your group is larger than three of four, you could book to be on the safe side, but it isn't required.
