Crab House Café
Ferrymans Way, Portland Rd, at the entrance to the Portland causeway DT4 9YU
Fantastic seafront restaurant serving locally caught fish and seafood, including oysters from its own beds, which lie just in front of the restaurant. Boasting a great New England beach-shack vibe, it's in a stunning location, right on Chesil Beach, with tables outside overlooking the water in summer. The menu changes according to the daily catch, but you should certainly sample the oysters, or try one of the inventive, equally delicious dishes like pan-fried sea bass with citrus fruits.
