    Spot on service, food better than expected

    The main ground floor restaurant is a nice buzzy place to be but the basement dining area which you have to pass through to get to the toilets is a very odd set up and I felt sorry for the people who were eating there as it felt like they were shoved out of the way in an entirely different atmosphere. One group had no lighting at all. The food was very average and overpriced and soggy chips served in a paper cup.

    I went for the special lunch menu which was disappointing, with small portions of seafood padded with chips and bread. Not like the adverts! The sharing seafood platters looked amazing but you need to be willing to spend a lot more to enjoy those. The food was all tasty. The guacamole mashed at my tableside added unnecessary foodie drama.

    Really enjoyed the food, the crab burger and whatever cocktail my fiancée had was delicious (I wasn’t drinking). I left a note saying it was my fiancée’s birthday, so they came out and wished her happy birthday which we both thought was really sweet. Would definitely go again!

    Visited here on 20/01/2020 for my friends birthday and had a wonderful experience. The décor and ambiance was nice with some good music gently playing in the background. We chose from the a la carte menu and ordered the King Crab bon bons and the Popcorn Squid. Both tasted wonderful but the crab was divine. My friend had the half lobster with truffled fries and I opted for the Lobster Linguine once again both dishes were well prepared and in both cases the squid was cooked to perfection. The portion sizes were good and we enjoyed the food so much that we greedily ordered some Guacamole with additional Opilio again it didn't fail to disappoint. I had two Porn Star cocktails and my friend had two Non alcoholic Passionfruit cocktails both of were made very well. In fact the second non alcoholic cocktail was a little too sweet for my friend and the bar tender happily rectified the situation. The staff were attentive without being too persistent and their professionalism and service was good. I would highly recommend a visit if you love seafood or are celebrating a special occasion. Although it is not the cheapest place to eat out in my opinion the experience was worth every penny and I would definitely go back. Thank you Fancy crab :-)

    Ordered the grilled platter and loved it!! Wasn’t too over the top and the food tasted great especially the mussels, staff were extremely friendly and so helpful even apologising that our food took 15 minutes which I was shocked by considering most restaurants I’m waiting 25 anyway! Absolutely perfect little venue and would highly recommend

    Fancy Crab lacked the finishing touch! Booked for a birthday treat, met on the door with attitude and service didn’t improve much. No one took our coats. Food was good though and one waiter was friendly and made some great recommendations. I’d made two simple requests when booking. A nice table and a candle in the dessert. They did neither. They advertise a 10% discount for birthdays but didn’t take it off the bill. I queried this and got £20 off (not even close to 10%) but they did then put a candle in some refrozen Ice cream. I gave up on challenging the bill a second time. Overall the food is pretty good here. However you can do a lot better then going to Fancy Crab.
