Absolutely fantastic food, wine and service.
NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE, I had scallops to start which could of done with caramelizing a bit more, they certainly were not fresh but frozen. Main course for me was catch of the day the catch of the day which was nice and the Bream was of a good size however serving it with just boiled potatoes and a small bowl of poorly sorted salad let it down for the price. The real let down however was my wifes crab. It consisted of a very large (re-used) crab shell with what I could only consider to be a kind of brown crab soup! the legs and claws hidden underneath the shell bore no resemblance to the size of the shell but were from what I would imagine to be a £4.00 purchase from the market, a very overpriced meal. We shared an all right cheese board washed down with port and brandy which again was nice. Including our wine the total bill was £111 pounds, certainly not worth the overall experience. We will not be returning.
We very much enjoyed our lunch at the crab. The food was very delicious
Great to be back in the Crab following lockdown. Food as good as ever. A must for all who enjoy a great seafood dinner.
Lovely food a bit quiet for Lunch but well executed menu
Fantastic food , cocktails and service. Highly recommended. It felt very safe and clean with extra covid measures in place.
Simply amazing... can't recommend this resturant enough..
Great setting, food was really nice. Good service from start to finish.
Excellent meal at the Crab , one of the best seafood restaurant meals our family have had. So good we booked for a second visit during our break to Bournemouth ! So would highly recommend
Regularly come here and have never been disappointed.
Food was exceptional and service was very good without being obtrusive. It was somewhat noisy though. Pretty good social distancing measures. Wine list was very limited and disappointing compared to the standard of the food.
The most amazing food and reasonably priced. Exceptional service!
Recently went to the crab for a birthday celebration meal and I would definitely recommend! The food was incredible with excellent service and a really nice atmosphere.
Fantastic evening. Food great! Booked the week before going away and a bit disappointed when we arrived - Not what I expected from looking on the outside of restaurant but beautiful once you enter. Can not fault our evening was beautiful. Thank you to all the staff.
Delicious oysters and hot Fruit de mer and great service
The food was good and the service very good. It was well managed from a covid point of view. The only negative was the pricing. High for what it was and no offers or discounts like other restaurants at the moment, which might explain why only three tables were in use.
Lovely food an amazing place to go! Defo recommend this place
I am not really a fish person but the food at The Crab is amazing and converted me!. We went back twice over the weekend as the staff are great and really know the menu and what to suggest. Never had fish and sea food this good!
The staff were absolutely fantastic in particular Victoria! She went above and beyond with helpful suggestions in the local area and made our anniversary special with an added extra touch! Also the desserts were absolutely incredible! Would 100% return when we’re next in the area
The second time eating here, it was so good the first time we had to come back, we’ve eaten at brassiere blanc & Rick Stein & the menu & food at the crab are far superior. Extremely friendly staff and excellent food.
We were sad that were so few people there. We were happy and all enjoyed our meals but only two other tables eating.
great staff and very fresh seafood but highly recommended to book in advance .
The menu is excellent, fish on the bone perfect, wine very good and desert yummy
Excellent attentive service, high quality food with a lovely ambiance
Gorgeous food. Friendly and attentive staff. The best food I had all weekend in Bournemouth!
Great all round experience even with tighter restrictions in place.
Superb as always
Great atmosphere, great service and superb food
Not a bad combo 🤔🍽🍾👏👏👏👏👏
Lovely evening lovely catch of the day! Thank you it was a lovely experience!
The meal and service were outstanding and one of the best meals myself and my partner have eaten in a long time. Will definitely return when we come back to Bournemouth.
Mussels weren’t cleaned properly so had dirt/sand in them still. Ordered the Crab and was told didn’t have any?!
I was able to bring my 3 month daughter to the restaurant with no issue but to be told they do no facilitate any baby changing area which was disappointing as she was not the only baby in the restaurant at the time. The food was average and nothing outstanding. Won’t be going back there anytime soon with no baby changing area.
My first time at the crab, heard a lot of good things about the food! And me and the mrs were not disappointed! Absolutely amazing food! The lobster was the best Iv had! Filet steak was very very good! Lovely atmosphere, amazing cocktails! definitely be going back! Well done too everyone at the Crab!! Thankyou for a lovely evening 😊
Food was delicious, modern restaurant, great location with nice atmosphere!
A good place for a special occasion, speed of service fluctuated between very fast and slow, but food was very good.
Very nice food (the whole carb !) and great service. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend
It was a lovely meal with great attentive service but I just wish you couldn’t hear everyone else’s conversation and having to shout to be heard across your table where it’s a large space with no soft furnishing to break up the noise. I would definitely go again because the food was outstanding and great value
Great food and good value. However, the service was slow and the venue was noisy with a very loud party. Not necessarily somewhere for a quiet romantic dinner - but would still visit again to see if this was a one-off as the food was great.
Have recommended this restaurant in the past lots of times .The last visit being in February.We we’re really looking forward to this visit however this became a disaster.no background music a group of people of about 10 were totally disruptive not complying to COVID rules.Staff didn’t deal with this at all. We had to book early however our main meal took 75 minutes to arrive.
Even our drinking water was clearly forgotten.The meal was a total disaster.The new manager didn’t appear to know what was going on! We won’t be going back!
The social distancing measures were brilliant, the service was superb and the food was outstanding.
We have eaten in the Crab restaurant many times when we come to Bournemouth. We have to say this has been the best yet!
