At 7pm on a Sunday, the restaurant looked almost full!!! If you are in Bournemouth, you really need to eat her..."e!!

"The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. The wine was lovely. Service was warm and friendly. I can’t find a fault at all. Thoroughly recommend this pace for a casual drink or for a lovely meal."
"We had booked to go to a show at the BIC. The Crab opens at 17.30 and offers a great set menu for a pre show supper.
The staff were slick and the service efficient without being hurried. The Crab managed to maintain an atmosphere of sophistication whilst serving customers with a really good value f..."or money 3 course meal in time for the BIC opening doors at 19.00. There was a good choice on the fixed price set menu. The starters were obviously all ready to go at 5.30 so I would say that our only criticism was that the fishcakes we chose were a bit luke warm. Otherwise everything was fine and the portions just right for a pre-show supper.
You definitely need to book well in advance, as people were being turned away, and there are not many nearby alternatives.
The pianist needs more practice!
