Excellent brunch menu, in a nice but relaxing setting. Great choice for gluten free and very accommodating. Great service and a brilliant weekend treat. Will definitely be back!
Food was really good, the only negative comment I would make is that I thought the dessert would be classed as part of the Sunday Roast deal
Great staff and friendly service
Excellent Service along with the amazing food.
Great service. Varied menu. Food was tasty and arrived quickly. Pity no cocktails allowed due to Covid.
Fantastic meal at the Esslemont, service was first class will definitely be back
Nice Atmosphere and attentive SAP.
So good we went twice in the space if a week.
Food was good, service was good. Noisy inside though and very cold!!
Food was great! Covid safe environment. Posted my food on instagram so more people will find out how good this place is and go as well!
Had a lovely, relaxed brunch. The food was great and we were very well looked after. Had a peek at the Sunday Roast menu, we will definitely be back for that.
Great steak. Good service. Highly recommended. One of the best steaks in Aberdeen.
- Nice welcome from the front of house staff - Very friendly waiter who was very attentive and explained everything clearly about the option of choosing the meal options from our phones - Food was excellent. Great that the brunch/lunch menu and daily menu were both in action. Couldn’t fault it at all - my duck was superb and sticky toffee pudding amongst the best I’ve had. - Really great value for the cost of our meal. - Only downside, which was no fault of The Esslemont (!), was we couldn’t have an alcoholic drink with our lunch due to the latest Covid restrictions. All in all very pleased with our visit and we’ll definitely be back!
Eggs Beneduck was absolutely amazing!
Excellent lunch and service.
First time dining at the Esslemont and it didn't disappoint on a rare date night with the wife. Service was first rate and food exceptional. Still a really enjoyable atmosphere with the current COVID measures in place and in that regards we felt comfortable with more than the designated distance between tables being in place to adhere to social distance rules. For the quality of food and drink would have expected to pay more but thought it was very reasonable when the bill came. Will definitely be returning when we can get a babysitter 😁
Fantastic food, relaxed surrounding, brilliant and friendly service by Steve. Love the decor of the restaurant. Third visit now and always had a great time
We had a great evening at the Esslemont for my partners birthday. We went on a Sunday and enjoyed the Sunday Roast 3 course menu. The service was great and we felt safe at all times with the covid measures put in place. We would happily go back again.
We had a lovely evening amidst this horrible Covid 19 situation - great service and good food and drink.
Only reason for 3 stars in atmosphere was no music (however I know that’s because of covid regulations at the moment). Had a lovely meal and staff were so kind, I’d especially like to thank our waitress; I think her name was Angela. Hope to be back soon
Atmosphere is due to present circumstances
Excellent, quick and friendly service, Covid safety measures in place were very good and the food was lovely too, will definitely book again! Many thanks for a lovely brunch!
Staff were very friendly. Covid rules were observed well.
Had a lovely meal last night, and all COVID and hygiene rules in place , staff were very nice , will definitely return, and recommend to family and friends
We were delighted with our visit from start to finish. This was our first dining out in 9 months and we were happy we’d chosen to dine with you. The food and drinks were excellent. Beautifully presented and ever so nice. Service as always with a smile. We will be back again that’s for sure!
