I’ve been to Dublin on numerous occasions and never found Klaw, my loss. You can easily miss it or think it’s a second rate cafe from the outside but you couldn’t be more wrong. I arrived early, around 5.45, and it was empty apart from...More

Myself and my partner came here on a Tuesday evening where it was already quite busy. The place is quite small and more of a café than a restaurant, but it has a really nice chilled out atmosphere. We ordered all sorts of the menu,...More

As you're eating the most divine oysters and crab whilst chatting with the team; who are so knowledgeable and passionate about what they are cooking and serving, you feel like you should walk out and see the sea and feel the sand. Perfection.

This place is meant to resemble a "no-frills, crab shack" kinda place, I guess? They do great things with fresh seafood and the servings are pretty generous. Ordered the lobster roll, a couple of poke bowls, gambas and mac n cheese. Food was good. Prices...More

Klaw is brilliant, we loved it so much we visited twice. The chowder is amazing, its insanely delicious, its a must have. The smoked salmon is lush, the dressed oysters are to die for. The dublin bay grilled prawns were also good. The buffalo ray...More

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.
