I agree with previous writer that Klaw is a little too small to be called a restaurant and to be considered one of Dublin’s top restaurants. This is a charming spot for oysters and appetizers but we didn’t realize we could have ordered mussels with...More

Few people can fit in here. Menu is on the board that you can't see unless you stand in people's way. Very hot as kitchen is literally beside you. Prosecco served in a jar! Tasty food, staff very friendly. Best for couples not looking for...More

We mistakenly went to Klaw in crown alley. Didn’t realise they had another place in temple bar. It’s very cramped and a bit too casual for my liking. Menu is on the board that you can’t see unless you stand back from the table and...More

Brought my Greek friend here, he’s a seafood freak and catches most of it himself at home so a high bar. Klaw is tiny and you have to navigate the kitchen staff to get to the loo but it’s a fantastic little place. They know...More

Tiny, hole in the wall place shouldn't dissuade you. These guys know how to cook. Yes, service was slow, the place was packed. Who cares? You are in Dublin. The food is amazing. Go.

We were in Dublin some years ago and on this occasion we were on a around Britain cruise. We've done the sights; I wanted Chowder and Guinness somewhere in Temple Bar. I was getting discouraged as all the pubs looked awful when a local stall...More

After being recommended Klaw, we weren't sure what to expect when we walked in. An intimate restaurant with flavours delivered- doesn't disappoint!

Tiny quirky place with absolutely fabulous seafood. Knowledgeable and passionate staff. There are no starched white tablecloths here but if you love fresh local seafood you should go.

This little restaurant for me is the best Oyster's bar in Dublin. You can choose many tipes of oyster's with many different dressing. You can have a glass of wine or beer and join it with your seafood dish. The selection is great and you...More

No you cannot! But even if we are full the wait is usually very short so feel free to rock up anyway!
