Compact fish restaurant where cooking, service and ingredients are carefully balanced to create an unforgettable and relaxed dining experience.
Celebrating its ten year anniversary in 2019 – a fact that is testament to how much Finnieston has changed recently, when Crabshakk’s arrival heralded a bright new beginning for the district. It’s remarkable how much they’ve packed into a tiny space, from a marble bar and mirrored wall to ornamental ships and curved railings leading upstairs to a compact mezzanine. It’s all about the specials and fresh catch in this bustling spot, but there’s a modern touch to match the décor. Mussels in ‘nduja and puttanesca sauce gives the bivalves a spicy, earthy depth of flavour with crusty sourdough to soak it up. Share some salt and pepper squid, with gurnard goujon and Asian slaw, or seared scallops with anchovy butter. The main menu comprises mainly shellfish – from crab and lobster, to oysters, langoustines and a fruit de mer platter. There’s a real focus on specials that champion the catch of the day too – halibut with a creamed cod roe polenta, diced potatoes and rock samphire, or cod with olive oil mash, black pudding, broccoli and a green apple salsa.
