I've never written a trip review before but I felt this little gem deserved it! We stumbled upon Klaw purely by accident, and were drawn in by their Happy Hour offer of €1.50 oysters. The manager was a complete charmer who runs a really warm...More

What can i say about Klaw, not much.. I read the reviews and thought why not, something different. Average menu, average food at a higher than average price. Paper plates, disposable cutlery reminded me of camping. Thought we would try the famous lobster roll.. What...More

The small venue makes this restaurant cozy and you can feel like in someone's home, especially that the kitchen is part of the restaurant. This has some disadvantages, as you can see how the food is prepared and the chef should be more aware of...More

Eaten here twice. 3 types of oysters - all great - washed down by a pint of draught Stout. This long narrow diner is like a cross between a shack and a small ships galley. V. friendly staff. Great experience - will be back

Blink and you would miss this place, somewhat overshadowed as it is by its neighbour - also in the fish food business. So look for the sign of the lobster rather than the sign of the celebrities, creak open the door and follow your nose....More

Sauntered into Klaw today for lunch. Although tiny, you feel very welcome the minute you walk in the door. A massive blackboard adorned one wall with a list of today's offerings, on the other side, a little clothes line with charming notes left by happy...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.
