Family dinner at crayfish inn was excellent. The staff were excellent with kids. The food was all in all good. We had kingklip...prawns...hake as mains...snails and calamari along with prawn cocktail for starters. Calamari was a little chewy when grilled. Portion sizes were perfect....not too large. Gives u an opportunity to taste a few more things. However please ask staff... More

We had a Sunday lunch there and the food was average. The service was average as we had a novice waitress. The owner came to talk to us and remind us that the restaurant closes at 3 and it was nearly 3 o'clock. They open then at 6 again.

The outside garden was being cleared of water after days of rain so we had to sit inside, meals were ordered, one mussel pot and one hake.... More

Service was good. Menu was standard. I enjoyed a lovely yellow tail meal but found it too large although I requested a smallish portion.

Went there at an odd hour - between lunch and supper - for a family meal, even so the service was good, staff very friendly. Had the Thai prawn curry and enjoyed it. The restaurant would benefit from an upgrade to their decor
