Well prepared fish dishes in unpretentious and cosy surroundings, cheerfully served. The smell of the place still lingers on my clothes!

Myself and my parents visited here for lunch following taking the coastal path walk from Littlesea. It was a glorious day so we sat outside on the benches. We had the 6 plain oysters & the whole crab. It was one of the best meals we have had! The oysters were definitely the best I've had. We will definitely be... More

We had a gorgeous birthday meal,excellent service, good choice of food with really interesting menu & specials. The food was amazing but especially the crab which was honestly the best I've ever eaten! So worth a visit, would recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment. Well done guys, keep up the good work!

We both love seafood and this didn't disappoint in any way. The cafe is a bit beach surfs shack, trendy innovative and chillaxed with interesting fish sculptures made... More

A Birthday meal for one's wife has to be something special and the Crab House did not disappoint. So many local people said good things about this place and our experience more than lived up to expectations. We had booked for noon (their opening time) and were welcomed warmly - they apologised that menus were still being printed. This shows... More

Delightfully relaxed, very attentive staff, brilliantly fresh oysters, tasty crab with bib, hammer, bucket, crackers and pick. This place looks like a simple holiday beach resort shack, it's great. We will definitely return if we're in the area. Worth booking

This was our second visit to the Crab House Cafe. The first time was for a special birthday blow out in July of last year and I wrote a 5 star review that time. So we were looking forward to a second visit. Unfortunately the experience just wasn't the same. The setting is unchanged and as magnificent as ever. As... More
