About Fancy Crab

Perhaps the name says it all. Fancy Crab is a London restaurant that specialises in everyone’s favourite crustacean, the red king crab. Ideal for sharing, there’s nothing quite like the primal feeling of cracking open fresh crab with your bare hands and devouring the meat like a caveman. All jokes aside – at Fancy Crab, you’ll get tools for your civilised feast and you’ll also get to pick from a menu packed with a huge range of fresh seafood. There’s even a raw bar! This place is paradise for seafood lovers, so your best bet is to book ahead of time before they beat you to it. You’ll find Fancy Crab on Marylebone’s Wigmore Street, just steps from Bond Street underground.

Omg it was soooo amazing the staff were soooo good. The waiter was telling us the story on why it was the best crab and the service was amazing. The food we had to order more than wanted only because it was less which we knew by reading the reviews previously. It cost us quite abit but it was worth it fo my husbands birthday which the staff have sang to him too. Would definitely recommend and go there again.
