A fabulous, friendly cafe with great food and excellent service! Wonderful location in Hope Square, in the centre of old town, close to the harbour and a few minutes stroll from the bay. Definitely recommend a visit!

There were muscles on the menu and they were the freshest I have tasted in a long while. All the food we had was excellent and beautifully presented. An excellent way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Weymouth.

Downside is that restaurant is small and only seats around 24, so a little 'cosy' although in the summer it would be lovely eating outside. They only had the Tapas menu on when we went, I guess because it was out of season even though it was a Saturday night. We ordered four different types plus bread, and these were... More

An evening out with a group of friends was very enjoyable at the Crow's nest. The restaurant has an informal air with no pretence visible. Service was friendly and well paced, we waited for our first course and between courses but never too long. The wine was of reasonable quality, I am no expert. The food was not overly attractive,...

We ate here on a Saturday evening, the area was quiet, but i can imagine it being hectic in summer. The food arrived very quickly and we really enjoyed our evening. pleasant and attentive staff

Had a wonderful evening tapas meal here with my husband Ms parents on Saturday. The atmosphere outside was magical, and the heater helped take the edge off the autumn air - it felt like summer! We had a wide range of tapas dishes and a bottle of Spanish red - all really delicious but the spinach and cheese croquettes, chorizo... More

We visited tonight and had an excellent meal. Good choice of tapas and wines. Portion size good and food arrived hot and flavoursome. Quite quiet tho-we had booked for 7.30 but people arrived later. Quaint cosy restaurant. Waitress friendly and efficient. Looking forward to a return visit next time we are in Weymouth :-).

We stumbled upon this place whilst looking for somewhere to eat on a Saturday night. I was surprised to get seated immediately at 8.30 on a Saturday. The food was great, but there are couple of reasons I didn't give 5 stars. Usually at tapas places I've visited u get complementary breads and oils which we didn't get and there... More

The food was plentiful and very lovely, the service was refreshingly friendly, local, human, calm, swift and with no pretence or manner of the fast-food outlet, which seem to be setting the super-low expectation of late. I ordered far too much, spent far too much, ate it all, drank it all, and left very full and very happy! Highly recommended.... More
