Located on Wigmore Street in Marylebone, Fancy Crab celebrates the world’s most sought-after shellfish, the red king crab. With less than a handful of restaurants serving this delicacy in London, Fancy Crab sets itself apart with an exciting and innovative menu that highlights the versatility of this delicious meat.
Displayed in pride of place at the back of the restaurant, the red king crab is expertly prepared and served simply on ice or baked with butter and thyme, to allow the sublime flavors of this sweet, succulent meat to shine through. Ordered whole or as portions of leg or shoulder meat, the crab make a truly luxurious experience for a decadent lunch or dinner. Signature main courses include Singapore chilli crab; Fancy king crab burger with potato fries and coleslaw and King crab fettuccine all prepared in different ways to show off this indulgent ingredient. The bar downstairs offers a cosy retreat with booth seating, serving an array of delicious cocktails.

Had a meal for 2 at Fancy Crab on a Friday night.

We chose a seafood platter for 2. It’s not a generous serving and while the lobster was tasty the rest was slightly overcooked.

For dessert I had a lemon tart which was very nice.

Overall I wouldn’t go back but there’s nothing particularly wrong with it there’s just no ‘wow’ factor or reason to go back.

The food is great, but the ambience is lacking and interior design is like run of the mill American diner with the price tag of a Michelin.

It was Crabilicious! We had the whole crab and mussels which was probably not meant to feed 2 people but we nailed it. I would probably recommend 3-4 people to share if you go for the whole crab and a 1 or 2 sides to go with it.

Food sharing sea food platter was not served with dry ice smoke as advertised by restayrant that was dusappointing to our sin. They said they do not do it. The sea food plate was average but extremely overpriced. Nothing special about restaurant, food or service. Toilet was clean. Not going to visit again, there better sea food restaurants in the area.

We were there for a birthday. Had a reservation. Great table. Nice server. We had fries and crab bon bons as a starter and then waited 45 mins for chilled crab. The server came by and asked us if we wanted a dessert menu. We told him we never got our meal...still took about 10 mins to get our meal after all of this and there was nothing done to remedy the mishap. $190 for two people for lunch with very little food is a bit extreme.

Its OK menu very limited and waiting staff not very good at explaining the dishes.
I didn't like having my wine taken away because the glass had a fly in it. Only to receive back an empty glass atleast replace the wine. Not sure where the fly came from it must have been a winter fly.

Over priced. They tried to push us downstairs where there was no activity going on.

If you want a real seafood / shell food experience. It’s not the place

Having asked how much crab we should order for two, the waiter said 400g in total. When the bill came, he tried to charge for 800g. No apology when queried. Was only sorted when the manager came over. Would never go back again and would never recommend. Avoid.

It was very nice dinner, with very nice staff, especially the waiter Castro. Really I admire him. In general I would like to say that still the price is not meet the food.

I booked after seeing lots of crab filled posts on Instagram.
The lunch menu didn't really reflect this, but that's not to say that we didn't enjoy it.
My pregnant friends craving for crab was not quite satisfied.
The nachos with king crab, made at the table, was a delicious idea. We followed this with the seafood roll.
It was great value for a quick lunch, fast and efficiently served.
