After learning about the Guinness and oyster combination advertised in Ireland, my family wanted to try it, so we did a quick Yelp search for seafood restaurants around Temple Bar and came across Klaw.
We were lucky to snag the last 4-top table in the teeny, tiny restaurant on a Friday night around 7pm. We had actually walked by the storefront the previous day, and didn't even notice the restaurant. If I'm remembering correctly, there are 3 tables for four and then a counter with about 6 stools. We squished in, and started perusing the chalkboard menu on the wall. Everything looked delicious - and so reasonably priced - so we ordered too much (but even so, didn't leave much on our plates!).
Our group ordered:
1. A variety of oysters
2. Crab Toast
3. Grilled Gambas
4. Lobster Roll
5. Crab Roll
6. Kale Salad
7. Crab Mac'n Cheese
Everything came out fresh and delicious. My favorites were the crab toast (light and fresh) and the grilled gambas (the butter/Old Bay sauce was decadent and delicious). The kale salad was light and well dressed and the mac'n cheese had lots of crab. The lobser roll had a bit of yuzu in it, which was interesting, but not my favorite. For beverages, they had beer, wine, and Bloody Mary's. Our total came to around 100 euros for all that seafood - it was a steal!
Service was friendly and the atmosphere was fun and relaxed! One of our best meals in Ireland - highly recommend!
