Travelled down from Belfast for the day and were looking forward to eating at Klaw, arrived around 8pm and the place was really busy and smelled amazing- a great sign! Unfortunately when we got seated and got round to ordering, half of the menu was off. No crab, no claws, no mac and cheese, etc. We ordered some chowder and gave ourselves time to choose something else to order and opted for the platter, which turned out to be off too. The server was really trying, and explained to us that they hadn't had an order in 3 days- which was appreciated, and given the Bank Holiday is understandable. But overall the experience just wasn't that thrilling. Opted for fish tacos eventually which were fine, again cannot fault the server for working around dietary requirements etc with such a limited menu. Would love to get down again in the future to try what we'd actually gone for, as other diners' food looked really impressive and as I said above, the smell and atmosphere were great.

Saw Klaw on the web, couldn't book so just turned up. Very small and simple however the oysters were excellent and the whole crab even better. We arrived at 5 and by the time we had finished people were queuing to get in. If you visit Dublin, give this delightful place a go, you will not be disappointed

Definitely consider Klaw if you value good food with no fuss.
We had a lovely seafood meal with a bottle of French white wine this evening!

I was very pleased with my visit at Klaw. We ordered a sample plate of oysters and got some awesome oysters, both natural, torched and dressed. The Bloody Mary was great and the one we ordered came with an oyster as well! The lobster roll was also very good, even though I prefer the rolls that has less creamy stuffing, which this one had. I enjoyed my visit and would have liked to visit again if I'd had time.
