About The Fishmarket at Soul
Located within the popular Soul Bar on Union Street, The Fishmarket at Soul is Aberdeen’s newest seafood dining destination. Situated in a bright and airy dining space, The Fishmarket at Soul keeps it simple - real, classic fish and chips, done well.
Our menu celebrates Scottish seafood, with a large range of starters, as well as Scottish shellfish and alternative main dishes such as classic pie & mash. The main feature of the menu is our ‘Real Fish & Chips’; our perfected take on classic fish and chips dishes.
Service was soooo slow and inattentive! There were 4 staff, no more than 8 covers on the go and we had to wait for our mains to be cleared for a long while and on several occasions the girls walked past ignoring the empty plates!! Then when mains came, 2 of the fish were overcooked to the extent the fish was chewy....no way they should have been served! I mentioned at the time i wouldn’t be paying for mine as it wasn’t eaten and it was taken off the bill but it’s such a shame because the place is lovely but let down by staff not being on the ball and a kitchen putting food out when they would have definitely been able to see it wasn’t right! Our starters were delicious though which makes it all the more disappointing that things went wrong after the first course!!
There was several items unavailable on main menu then the wine we ordered was also unavailable The mac and cheese was dry with no sauce looked like a reheat with some extra cheese on top Other meals were average at best Won’t be returning
Great meal with my team last night food and service both outstanding. Would highly recommend
It was our first time at The Fishmarket but will definitely not be the last. Excellent food, service was super efficient and fast. The atmosphere was very calming and we thoroughly enjoyed the background music provided by a singer in the bar. Cannot wait until the next time we are in Aberdeen.
Absolutely grand - really good food and the staff were lovely
Price of bottles of wine expensive for the quality.
Thoroughly enjoyed our early Saturday evening meal with family. Staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Fish was very well cooked.
Haddock in batter was so good, service was excellent.
The food was outstanding, I will be back very soon. Only let down was the table service was slow
Pleasant lunch with friends. Good food and service
Both my friend and I ate the exact same thing and we’ve both been showing food poisoning symptoms. I had to call my GP as I’m 4 months pregnant. I won’t take the risk and go back there again unfortunately. The service was excellent, very friendly waitress, but the food made us very sick, whether it was undercooked seafood, out of date, or contaminated due to incorrect storage or whatever.
This was my second time eating at The Fishmarket. The first was on one of the first nights of it opening and it was fab. I was realy let down on my visit on Saturday, the food was less than great. Our starter of Calamari was absoluetly tiny, in fact we considered sharing a starter of calarmi as usually calamari is a large portion. Thankfully we ordered one each. We then had the sharer plate which just looked as if a bunch of food had been thrown on a plate, there was no presentaton to it what so ever (not that we were expecing anything fancy but i was just a mess) the haddock and scampi was SO soggy and the breadcrumbed hake was overly dry. I appreciate the food isn't overly pricey however less our drinks we still were £55 for this meal. It was actually worse than food you would get from the chipper round the corner and that would hae been less than half the price. My husband is a seafood buyer for Nolans Seafood and knows how seafood should be cooked, Saturday's meal was not up to standard at all. The staff however were super attentive and the cocktails were great as usual but unfortunately we won't be returning to eat.
First time visit would definitely recommend good service and reasonable prices.
Cullen Skink was amazing Fish cakes not so good, very dry and bland. The rest of my party seemed to enjoy their meal.
Chips were lovely, a little on the cold side. Fish was fresh, but still full of oil. Gravy was lovely.
We really enjoyed our meal and couldn't fault the food, however the service was extremely slow. We were sat for over 3 hours for 3 courses. We also had to go up to the bar a few times to ask one of the waiting staff to take our drinks order and to pay the bill. As a large table of 14 we could have spent much more money had we had the chance to order more frequently.
Service was slow for not a particularly busy restaurant
3rd visit and put to the same area just in front of the entrance which can get draughty
Attentive and friendly staff who were efficient yet unobtrusive. Excellent cod - nicely presented. Will definitely be back soon
Hi service was excellent. Fish and chips OK. Very very disappointed in the knickerbocker glory. Was served trifle with a smear of ice cream.
