Food menu is well varied and you get proper chips! However no fish fingers on the menu as yet ! There is a quiz night on Fridays - really good fun. oh yes. And there is free wifi .well worth a visit

“Very good fish and chips”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

We stumbled across this place and even though the kitchen was closed they were willing to reopen for 3 portions of fish and chips (and mushy peas).
the place has only 1 TV, dart brd and good beer, it is a place for locals so not the normal Alvor crowds.
go and give it a try!!
We even tried to go back for a second portion but this time the cook was not in the house.

“Great just for a drink”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

They do food here but we didnt try the food, though we heard it was nice. What we did like was the bar prices which were really good value, This little place is a must to try if you dont want to be ripped off on the main road

“This is not a restaurant”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Crows Nest is a very small bar that serves pub grub.The food was just OK BUT WE WILL NOT BE EATING THERE AGAIN.
The menu was limited with only six choices all of them English .What is the point of travelling all the way to The Algarve to eat sausage & mash or pie & chips.
