About The Crow Bar
The brains and bellies behind Sydney’s Crow Bar are far from a murderous bunch. A gaggle of passionate foodies, these guys and girls have together locked their beady eyes on a shared passion for good food, fine wine, creative cocktails – and they’re very eager to share what they’ve built from their cosy eyrie down Burlington Street in, yes, Crows Nest. Crow Bar is a perfect place to sample carefully curated international cuisine, innovative cocktails, fine wine and crafty beer, whether you’re up for a casual bite or a large celebration.

When three resourceful crows figured it was best to nest together in their quest to offer Sydney an intimate bar experience backed by a very clever kitchen, they settled on a lofty down Crows Nest’s Burlington Street but discovered they still needed to add a few feathers to their flock. And so John, Tracey, and Kerry – a trio with over sixty years collective hospitality experience – began the hunt and soon became four, welcoming international chef Anna Borna to the fold. Borna’s contribution is some of Sydney’s best tapasstyle share plates and platters, plus grand function menus for when Crow Bar opens its doors to diners looking to celebrate a big event or simply get together en masse, like a much less ominous (though possibly as hungry) take on Hitchcock’s classic!
Crow Bar has some serious leverage when it comes to the already crowded Sydney tapas bar and wine bar scene. First to the food, a highlight of this Crows Nest restaurant and stylish watering hole’s offering. Borna’s plates are designed for picking and sharing, focusing on authentic recipes culled from Spain and the Mediterranean, but open also to a few international flourishes – the Thai beef salad and Crow Bar’s famous chips with Americanstyle sauce are just two globetrotting examples. If you’re indecisive, with a larger group, or simply want to sample a range of bites that showcase Crow Bar’s culinary curatorship, go for the handsome and generously apportioned share boards, covering charcuterie, cheese, or a combination of both. Bigger appetites are cared for by dishes such as the twiceroasted lamb shoulder, fish tacos, schnitzel sliders, Americanstyle ribs and the Crow Bar burger. A visit to this Burlington Street eatery wouldn’t be complete without a sip from the bar, with an impressive range of wines, boutique whiskies, signature cocktails and mantails (for easily embarrassed blokes) on offer.
Amazing atmosphere, great staff, attentive and full of humour. Food was delicious and cosmopolitans were perfect. I will definitely be visiting there again and regularly!
relaxed environment and friendly staff. Yum Food. Loved the haloumi wrapped in ham. Wish we knew about this place sooner. Loved that the staff were in the same age bracket as myself.
Crow Bar offered a great service and excellent atmosphere! The cocktails were delicious and the food was great! Will definitely go back - great catch up venue for friends!
Always over delivers. Wasn't super busy so the waitress gladly offered table service. Great wines and reasonable prices but not a big list. Perhaps s few more choices would be warranted. Love going somewhere that hit the mark for 35-45.
Had booked well in advance for a Sat night and our table of 4 was located at the back of the restaurant and it was extremely noisy. The manager couldn't have done more to assist to relocate us which she did and the service was excellent during the night. Food was OK. Not a great choice on the menu though if you wanted more than the bar style share plates. Would go again but would avoid the younger crowd on a Sat night and perhaps consider for pre dinner drinks rather than a dinner venue
As ever, the crowbar is a great little bar that suits all type of events, from birthday bashes to first dates & girls nights outs. The food is always good & the barmen know their tipples, whether you want a crisp glass of white or a cheeky cocktail. The vibe is great, with a fab music selection.
The Crow Bar has a fun, vibrant atmosphere and they serve super yummy cocktails. I haven't tried the food yet but look forward to trying it next time.

The Sunday roast was the best I have had in Sydney. The staff were also very friendly and went the extra mile for us when they didn't have the meal that we wanted.

Really enjoyed ourselves. Huge generous delicious serves of Sunday roast with vegetables, gravy and Yorke puddings. Warm inviting inside and great service. Topping it off with a great glass of wine.
Great atmosphere and the staff were more than helpful and friendly. Food was delicious and came out in a timely fashion. Overall a great place to go. Will be back!
