Restaurant Review 6 - Crabshakk, Glasgow.

1114 Argyle Street
0141 334 6127

Was down in Glasgow for a couple of days and managed to meet up with my two sisters-in-law for a meal.
Lindsay chose Crabshakk and I'm really glad she did.  It was brilliant.

The place is tiny but we managed to get a big table to ourselves upstairs.  Really busy for a Wednesday night which is a good sign.

Lovely menu - excellent seafood done simply but perfectly.

We just ordered a selection of dishes from the starters, mains and accompaniment sections and shared them among us.

This is tempura squid £6.95.  Very tasty and the squid was surprisingly tender.

Small langoustines £9.95.

Seared scallops with anchovy butter £12.95.
Fat, juicy scallops and the salty anchovy butter is a wonderful combination.

3 crab cakes £6.95.

The desserts were overpriced for what they were and certainly don't match up to the beautiful seafood.

For the three of us to eat well, have a dessert each and share a bottle of Pinot Grigio cost £82.95.
I can't wait to come back.  I would probably do the same again and share a selection of dishes but maybe skip on dessert.
