First night in SA and recommended by guest house and close by. Food pretty good and good value compared to home (UK). Service a bit hit and miss but all in worth a visit

The concept is good but it would seem that they have lost touch with the customers. Prices are to high and it is not justified with the food. Service and friendliness can improve. If you must go go but there are other places offering better value for money

I took my family for a Sunday lunch at Crawdaddy's. They put us right by the play area, which in this case was great for my little one. The food was excellent and portion size was huge. My only complaint is that the area is not closed off so my kid can easily just run off.

Simply a wonderful eatery to visit if you need a restaurant to suit a variety of pallets. This restaurant has an impressive array of fun and meat or vegetarian, Thai or African dishes. You'll find something to eat! More suitable for a dining experience than the location, but quite an attractive venue too.

We just loved the setting (we sat inside because the whole outside was reserved). It was superb with the whole ambiance, high quality food and excellent service. WOW!

Provides excellent pub style food and great seafood but can be a touch on the pricy side. Decent service but gets very busy at luchtime so the wait can be a little longer. Definitely more a friends and family feel than romantic dining.

Thanks for taking time to review us .We have always been a value for money destination restaurant , and try our utmost to maintain this , however with the Rand taking a hammering on our imported seafood and produce it has made it very difficult . Regards Crawdaddys More

We had a family gathering at craw daddy's. The meals were average but enjoyable. A few things weren't up to scratch like the mussel starter, mussels were undercooked and not cleaned properly, there was still that hair on the mussels. A few of our meals were steaks and we ordered medium but received rare so then we had to send... More

I have been to Crawdaddy's a number of times and never been disappointed. The food and service is always great. I normally go for the steak as its always good. I would suggest to go for medium as the medium to rare option is more to the rare side. Will return in future.
