My second visit wasn't as good as the first. Rather than having one member of staff waiting on our table there were 4 which seemed to cause confusion with our order, cutlery etc. We had the bisque to start, unfortunately this was a little bland....More

Stunning - the best fish restaurant I have ever been to (including many Michelin star restaurants!) The Portland Royal Ousters are to die for, every dish cooked to perfection and wonderfully caring and happy staff. If you love fish - go as often as you...More

We have enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Crab House Cafe. I had the scallops, which were superb. I then had hake, with lamb bacon. Finally for desert I had the sublime Dorset Apple Cake. All in all we had an excellent meal.

The hake was excellent, as was the haddock - rated 1st class even by the non-fish person in the group. Took friends here after seeing the reviews and we were not disappointed.

We were so lucky to get a table in 24hours, we ate Al fresco and the weather was good to us. Will be returning with friends.

Yes it is. We have two Labradors and the staff were more than happy to accommodate us. We did sit out side though so I'm not sure about sitting inside. I would suggest calling ahead if the weather is bad or you want to sit... More
