Good food in Aberdeen

Recommended Posts

Hi all


Wondering if anyone could recommend any nice restaurants in Aberdeen? Meeting up with Family in a couple of weeks and trying to think of somewhere nice for a meal. Don’t want to go for specifically Chinese or Indian but somewhere that does a little bit of everything i.e. fish, steak etc


Any suggestions?

The Ashvale Fish Resteraunt up Ashvale Road is exceptionally good. Try the Ashvale Whale - finish it and get a free pudding. You'll never want the pudding as it's two huuuuge haddock fillets ;)


Down Holburn Street (left at the top of Union) theres a great little place called Josephines - they do an array of contemporary styled dishes.


Halo's quite contemporary too - on Union Street.


Wander along Langstane Place too for some nice eatery/pub type places.

Bistro Verde at the green is really good they specialise in fish but also do a wide range of other stuff but best to book a table as it's really popular.

Also the Mariner Hotel on Great Western Road do's good bar food and also has a nice restraunt. Never had a bad meal in either. :)

When I lived in the 'Deen (which is, admittedly, a few years ago now) Cafe 52, down on The Green was always very good and reasonably priced. Also, The Olive Tree, out at Queens Cross, was good, if a little pricier.


Both of them would do pretty classic European food, and both did excellent fish and steak.

Not sure whats all on the menu but the Illicit Still does some pretty good grub.


Edit:- Menu is available on their website -->



Yup, the Ill-Still (I'm cool) is een o my favourite waterin hols. It is more kindo pub-grub you get, but you get a fair whack fir your money, especially we a student discount :D . They hay a good selection o whiskey an the atmosphere is great.


If you do decide tae go there I wid have a back-up plan joost incase. Every noo an ageen it seems to get absolutely packed for no apperent reason. Also, if there's a big fitbaa match on it'll be hoachin.
