Fantastic food, enjoyed by all
Had a great meal. Fantastic from welcome to goodbye.
Had a lovely meal Sunday lunchtime, roast lemon & Thyme chicken was delicious & salted caramel profiteroles finished then meal off nicely.
Sunday roast was brilliant.
The service was excellent, we didn’t feel rushed or interrupted just the perfect amount of checking on us. The food was delish, good portions and very good value for money. It was my first visit but definitely not my last
All good. We will be back
Excellent food and service
The tables are extremely close to others at one section of the restaurant. We were unfortunate with one couple who sat next to us as they kept going out for cigarettes whilst they ate and the stale smell was disgusting. Along with him coughing up phlegm as we tried to eat our meal. If we were sat somewhere else it probably would have been a nicer environment.
On arrival our table was set for 3, not 4, easy mistake I guess but a good table at the window. Starters were served promptly, very promptly. This was followed by such a long wait for our mains we were offered a free drink while waiting. Shortly after our free drink arrived our mains came, they were all lukewarm. To be honest we couldn't be bothered complaining. The young girl serving us was incredibly nice and it clearly wasn't her fault, she deserves 5*. Deserts were good and were served promptly. Go back? Not in a hurry.
Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and good food.
Great meal and fantastic service
Fabulous food and very good value for the lunchtime set menu
Lovely food and great staff! Will return again!
Having attended for Aberdeen Restaurant Week, the waitress wrongly advised us that we could have a main and a dessert as part of the set price. Although they did allow this to be the case technically, I realised once home that we had been over charged (charged £10 for the main so only one course) and the dessert was a separate fee! If you are going to participate in ARW you need to get things correct! Pretty disappointing!
Duck was tasty and amazing ! Will have it again !
Very good lunch for restaurant week.
Had lunch with two friends during Aberdeen restaurant week which was a great introduction to the restaurant. Service from moment we walked in was lovely, couldn’t fault if from the bar staff, front of house to our server. Loved the food and atmosphere and will definitely return to experience the full menu
Good food supported by great service. Nice atmosphere both in bar and restaurant.
Had a lovely meal and our server was fantastic. Very attentive but not overly so. Only negative I can say is that the Restaurant as a whole was quite hot which was a bit uncomfortable but didn't totally spoil our evening
