Went on a Sunday night. Still good atmosphere and nice crowd. Sat at bar and had few cocktails. Always judge a bar by the quality of their margueritas. Theirs were great. Expresso martinis brilliant. Food snacks. Haloumi wrapped in ham. Fried halipinos stuffed with cheese. 4 hr cooked lamb shoulder. All amazing. Bar staff. Adrian and Steve just the right... More

Top spot! Cocktails were better than average but pricey (as expected in the big smoke). They took a long time to make but joint was busy and it was rocking. On that; the music here is ALWAYS great. Bit old school and nostalgic to get everyone moving and singing. Really dig this place; looking forward to diving deeply into the... More

If it's for dinner or drinks this should be the place of choice. The staff are fantastic and the food is just as good. Perfect for a friendly face and conversation. I have spent many a night drinking their lovely wine and picking different items off the menu. If you want to have a casual but fun night out, this... More

It's great to have a local bar that has a buzzy atmosphere and offers great food and drink options. But above all else, the service level here is exceptional. Every time I have visited here I have been warmly greeted and made feel very welcome. It can get pretty busy at peak times so a booking is recommended, but the... More

This is our watering hole of choice while on holiday here. Really good pub grub and a vast range of cocktails, wines and spirits to tempt you. Very friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

Every time we go to the Crow Bar, my wife and I are always greeted warmly. The menu is a great Tapas menu with lots of loving things to try. If your are Whisky connoisseur, then this is a bar to try and of course the wines are of good quality.

Have been several times and it doesn't disappoint. It's crowded on a Friday night but feels friendly and local. Book if you want to eat and eat you should .. Particularly the slow cooked lamb shoulder and sweet potato fries! Nice addition of a bar out the back.. Great personal service from the owner, his wife and their efficient smiling... More

I'd heard about the Beef Brisket here - and the recommendations were all true! Amazing meal, meat falling apart and tender, with really different flavours of actual cactus in the sauce. Loved it! Combined with lovely friendly service, it was a delicious meal and experience

This place is perfect for us at this stage and great to see it progressing. What a different place than the Burlington that it was 5 years ago.. Its now alive. Crows nest is becoming such a dynamic small bar dining spot, who would have though only a few years ago.
