Klaw is a little seafood shop within the Temple Bar area. It’s not too hard to find unless you’ve had your fair share of pints at the local pubs. But I will add that it’s pretty small. Inside, there are about four tables on one side with single seating along the wall. If you’re at the tables, you’ll be right next to the menu which takes up the whole wall. Toward the back is their kitchen where you can spy on your neighbor’s order in the making. It’s a casual and playful place with customer drawings hanging off the walls and a staff that’s ever so social. Without them, I would have never found out the table next to me was from my hometown.
It’s a small world indeed.
To keep things simple after a long day of work, I went with their signature seafood platter. It may seem like a lot, and for many is, but for me, it was a perfect way to end the day. Paired up with a couple pints of Guinness and I was ready to hit the sheets after I was done. This was a good start into the Ireland’s dedication to good honest seafood.

Verdict: A decent option for seafood as your stumbling from pub to pub.
