very average, overrated place to eat ... most of the dishes (tasteless) has got nothing to do with tapas apart from name ... service is very slow, location is not that great either.

Having seen the great reviews for this place, myself and some friends dropped in for lunch. The setting is great. One of us had the chicken and chorizo stew which was great and another ordered a salad with dressing on the side. Turns out I should have done this as well, as my feta and olive salad came with such... More

We had not booked anywhere on a Friday night but came across this small place and they had a free table. As I love Tapas I was chuffed. Things started well with a nice bottle of Rioja and the first dishes to arrive, the croquettes and garlic mushrooms, were nice. We then had whitebait(no dip), scallops with black pudding,(the scallops... More

Lovely little tapas tucked away in the old harbour. Great service, yummy food and good wine list. Not many tables so worth booking.

We sat outside in this lovely tree limbed square and enjoyed the great atmosphere of a pianist entertaining outdoor diners which just was the icing on the came after the excellent tapas served by this restaurant. The food was so good we went back again the next evening. There is an excellent selection of traditional tapas dishes and service was... More

We headed out for a family meal in the harbour and ended up at the Crow's Nest. The menu is tapas - with an excellent selection for veggies. A good selection of tapas was available with quick and relaxed service. There are a selection of tables outside and in - we arrived around 7pm without booking and got in, but... More

Went here two years ago and thought it was grand; nothing has changed. Food was very good and well priced, service keen and attentive with a lovely atmosphere on balmy night with a singer entertaining outdoor diners. Location is just off the beaten track so very relaxing and less hectic than the adjacent harbour area. Worth crowing about, I think.

We found this wonderful restaurant when on a day trip to Weymouth. We are a family of 5 and sat outside in the lovely square in the old harbour area. Service was perfect - friendly and attentive and very helpful. We had 5 different dishes from the menu and they all exceeded our expectations. The mussels and the whitebait were... More

Nearly two and a half years since I was last here and on this occasion we went with 2 friends from out of town. They were blown away not only with the delicious Tapas on offer and very friendly and attentive service offered by the staff but could not believe the great value this place also offered. They'll be back... More
