Stumbled upon Klaw for a quick bite on the way back to our rental, and we’ve been back 2 more times! Food is amazing! Try the torched oysters or the crab grilled cheese! You will not be disappointed!

A tiny little restaurant that does amazing seafood. The grilled prawns came with a simple chilli and garlic sauce and toasted bread on the side. Not over the top - just done well. The lobster roll was also great. Well worth a visit.

Great seafood, friendly warm service. If you like oysters clams & prawns ( to mention a few) this is the place ! If I lived in Dublin I would be a very regular customer.

A very basic shack-like place with no hint of glamour or sophistication but oh my God what great shellfish and so fresh. Really wonderful. One wee criticism...when eating crab and lobster, seafood forks are rather an obvious requirement.

Stopped in for a snack and wasn’t disappointed. Very helpful staff were able to suggest a great selection of oysters from across Ireland in a variety of flavours. Also highly recommend the nachos with crab, very tasty!

Food was so good we ate there twice. The cockles seafood soup is just perfect with the freshest ingredients and the prawns were extremely tasty. A Bloody Mary was ideally mated to the food. We viewed and smelled the grilled calamari in the open kitchen,...More

I popped in here by myself for an afternoon snack during a solo trip to Dublin. I loved how fresh the food was, and the staff was super friendly. I had the oysters they recommended, crab toast, and a beer. I loved how intimate and...More

Stepped into this place for a quick lunch before leaving to the airport! Service was quick and staff are friendly but most importantly food is absolutely delicious. Very casual place for a quick bite with some chilled music in the background. I had the prawn...More

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Small venue it may need to wait but totally worth it. Not the cheapest but again totally worth it. Good portion size. A few things had run out but was a busy bank holiday weekend. Recommend the oysters, gambas and mussels. I...More
