The location and simplicity of this place made it the most fabulous experience for my wife and I to have two lunches last week. The staff were superb and the food was sublime. A great place to spend an afternoon!

We visited with local friends for lunch, didn't book and were pleased to be seated quickly, including two small ones in high chairs. Food and service was great, weather and wonderful views made it even better. Well done.

We ordered two small beers and were served with two bottles of beer. We sat on a wooden bench outside the crab shack. We were surprised to be charged £8.50. Didn't return for another.

Have visited the Crab Shack twice this week for my stay and both times it was fantastic. The crab is fresh and flavourful, the squash risotto was fantastic and the brûlée was beautiful. Be sure to book, but it's well worth the reservation!

My wife chose this to help celebrate her birthday as it was a sunny day yesterday and the restaurant overlooks St.Brelade' bay. It also specializes in serving crab caught locally.
