    Food was great, especially the mussels in the premium stand. However, service was very poor. Probably twice as long as a comparable place would take. Didn’t want to pay for full gratuity. 2-3 stars.

    Immaculate service. Food excellent although we didn’t read the menu correctly and were surprised with bread roll. But very tasty. Wine was great. Enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant.

    Overall experience no more than average. Waiters & waitresses had a lot of difficulty understanding our English accent. Most disappointing that the crab itself is frozen! Apparently only in fishing season for a short period each year which was not when we visited! Lobster had also been frozen. Spoilt the reason for going there to be honest . Towards the end of the evening , there seemed to be a discussion in the background between staff (including the manager) about us having ordered a few bottles of wine which we didn’t feel comfortable about ! Maybe they were worried we weren’t going to pay the bill??? Not somewhere I would recommend to friends sadly.

    Pork Belly was awesome. Crispy squid was a lot of crispy and not much squid. We ordered Singapore chilli crab which is some kind of soup with very little crab meat. We ordered a salad with additional crab meat. The wrong order was given to us so we ended up getting our mains for free. Seating was cramped. I won’t be going back.

    OMG is all I can say about Fancy Crab. The food was phenomenal....everything from the ambience to the staff was fantastic. I had the Singapore Chilli Crab which honestly speaking is one of the most amazing dishes I have ever had. Will defo be returning here.

    High quality food in a nice setting. Excellent service. The octopus carpaccio was stunning. The only thing I didn’t like was a strong smell of air freshener at one point.

    Excellent service. Food was generally very good especially the oysters and King Crab legs, but desserts were a bit hit and miss. Well located just behind Oxford street.
