Crab tavern Dubai

Crab Tavern seafood restaurant in Dubai serves American-style dishes in an urban-rustic setting.

We were invited to Crab Tavern, a discreetly located seafood restaurant in Media City.  A casual eatery that has a sister branch in London, we didn’t know much about the place-except of course that they must be serving crabs.

Once we walked in we were happy to find an urban-rustic style setting with exposed brick walls, lighting accents and warm wooden features.  Be sure to ask for a table by the windows as the view of Dubai Marina at night is very impressive.  The menu was simple yet extensive and although there is an impressive lineup of a whole range of different dishes, we knew exactly what we had to try.

We started with an order of calamari – disappointing – it was however, enough to tidy us up till the main arrived.  The star of the evening was of course the West Coast Bucket Boil (AED 150 per person) and it arrived on our table piping hot.  A medley of crab claws, mussels, lobster, rate potatoes, merguez sausage and sweetcorn served in an absolutely delightful sauce.  An absolute joy to eat we even scooped up all the gravy with the bread and fries.

Dessert is also a decadent affair and those with a penchant for all things sweet will adore the soft and gooey freshly baked brownies served with ice cream. We personally loved the pecan pie-a true American classic dessert, that was indulgent and heavy and we don’t often find here in Dubai.

Crab Tavern has a relaxed vibe and is the ideal place to unwind after a hectic week at work.

Crab Tavern will be closing down at the end of May 2017 and is currently hosting some great offers on drinks and a 2 for the price of 1 weekend brunch offer (3-course set menu) on Friday and Saturday from 2pm-5pm.
