About The Silver Darling
Welcome to The Silver Darling…
Situated in the former Customs House at the mouth of Aberdeen Harbour, The Silver Darling has recently embarked on a new voyage.
Renovated to the highest of standards, The Silver Darling has been transformed with stylish interiors that celebrate our unique heritage and complement our stunning setting for memorable meals.
The Silver Darling has an upstairs dining area which boasts floor to ceiling glass windows, providing panoramic views of Aberdeen’s beach, harbour and the historic fishing village of Footdee – affectionately known as ‘Fittie’ by the locals.
With a passion for quality food and drink, our menus have been carefully curated to showcase the finest selection of Scottish produce from Aberdeen Angus Beef to the freshest fish and shellfish dishes, in a laid-back yet sophisticated atmosphere.
The Silver Darling is the perfect setting to gaze at the sweeping sea coastline, watch the ships sail by, or in the summer months you may be lucky to catch a glimpse of the dolphins and seals bobbing in the bay…
I was well impressed with the Silver Darling. I last went there about 3yrs ago when I thought it was living on old reputation, that has changed now and I had a very enjoyable meal with good service and a superb atmosphere.
Excellent lunch to celebrate my Dads birthday, staff friendly and very attentive, food great. Loved the extra touch of wishing my Dad a happy birthday , much appreaciated. It was our first visit , and definitely will not be our last. Thank you.
Wonderful venue with some very nice views of the city. Staff were polite and respectful and the food was delightful.
My son's choice to come along for his 21st birthday. We had a great evening, the food was very good. We weren't rushed and could make the most of the great setting. Will definitely be back.
First time back. In over 3 years in my opinion far better dining experience than previous Device was excellent from booking in thru meal service Choice to suit all food choice and price Will definitely be back, won’t be so long this time Great to have somewhere like this locally The barman/ maitre De was excellent
We were a party of six as I had friends who had come up for a visit. Everyone throughly enjoyed their choices and we covered a number of options on the menu from the seafood platter to the fish and chips, they all want to come back next time they visit.
We were a party of 3 and all had different starters, mains & desserts. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food.... The flavours and presentation were amazing...
Impressed by feedback from staff to query on food (specificallly moules mariniere). New set up tasteful and much more relaxed. Staff very helpful and food excellent.
Great food and atmosphere. The service was first class. Thank you.
Lovely atmosphere and views Amazing service and friendly staff Food was excellent and can’t wait to come back!
This restaurant is hard to beat. Everything about it is first class.
Staff and food excellent as well as a great atmosphere.
Was there on a Saturday with friends. Halibut was the freshest and the best quality at a reasonable price. My friend had monkfish which she said was fantastic too. Were not disappointed with desserts either. Top quality food all round and will definitely go back.
Service was excellent, very attentive! And food amazing!
Excellent food ambience and service. A great dining experience
Very good fish
Lovely seafoods and nice location
I had a fantastic experience dining in The Silver Darling for the first time last weekend. I cannot fault any part of the restaurant, food or service and there was the added bonus of a free taxi in to the City centre to continue our night. I will definitely be visiting The Silver Darling again, very soon.
We had an excellent meal - everything was faultless and the service was friendly and well paced. Our visitors from London were very impressed and want to come back so we can eat here again!
The Silver Darling is for me currently the best restaurant in Aberdeen. Great location, lovely new modern interior, friendly professional service and high quality food. I firmly recommend this restaurant to anybody.
Disappointing starters. Cullen Skink very average and mussels terrible. The halibut was lovely as was the monk cheeks. Ordered wine and had to ask when we were going to get it as waitress forgot. Was here previously and it was lovely. Has gone downhill. Not sure if we will return. Very disappointing night.
This was our first time to The Silver Darling, we had a great table with a lovely sea view, the food was excellent and the service outstanding. We will definitely be returning.
Disappointed not to see more shellfish on the menu.
