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…
Excellent meal! Great location with views of the beach and harbour!
Lovely setting. Amazing views. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Our first visit to your restaurant. A real surprise. Beautiful restaurant, welcoming and helpful staff and fantastic fresh local seafood cooked to a high standard. We’ll be back!
We had a lovely meal for my boyfriend’s birthday. It’s such a beautiful location and a treat to watch the ships go by. The birthday surprise at dessert was excellent, the staff made sure we enjoyed our meal and made it special for us. We hope to be back soon!
Me and my girlfriend had a lovely meal in a nice quiet setting with very polite helpful staff who made dining very comfortable and enjoyable. Very fresh, good quality food and presented well. Main courses not cheap but you get what you pay for, although desserts were 10/10 and very good value. Would definitely go back and recommend to any seafood lover. Wouldn’t have minded a few more menu options.
Great food and service. Would have preferred a window table given it was a quieter night.
Food fantastic as usual and the atmosphere and ambience of the restaurant is always so enjoyable. One of our favourite places in the city.
The food was excellent, the atmosphere good. The staff were friendly, competent and helpful. The white wine (ANA) was excellent ..... but we found the price of the wine per glass to be on the expensive side, especially as at retail level it is possible to buy a bottle for £12-£15.
First visit but certainly not the last So much more I’d like to try off the menu
Could not fault our recent lunch 👍
This restaurant is down on the Aberdeen Pier. The atmosphere is lovely, and the food was delicious. Our servers were very accommodating and even offered to call us a cab at the end of our meal, which we sincerely appreciated because we were from out of town. We decided to try this place to celebrate our first anniversary. We were not disappointed. I think they have some of the best selections of seafood in town. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Aberdeen.
The food was amazing and the staff were friendly and nothing was a bother for them no matter what we asked for. Great service.
We were extremely unhappy with the service after we had our main course. The staff were clearly good friends and had a great time in the bar area and were well attended with their post shift drink. Unfortunately, they weren't so keen on seeing to the customers. We sat with empty glasses and not given dessert menus for around 20 mins. Staff went past but avoided eye contact - instead concentrating on setting up tables for the next day. The food was amazing but poor service let the restaurant down.
Fantastic evening !
First visit to Silver Darling and cannot wait to return. Food was absolutely amazing. We cannot speak highly enough about the quality of food. The service of staff equaled the quality of food. The staff were extremely pleasant and made us feel very welcome.
Thank you for honouring my request for a window table to enhance this special and relaxing time with our niece. The choice of menu, the quality of food and the gracious and attentive service of the staff helped to make this a memorable day. We look forward to a return visit!
We took our son and daughter in law here on Saturday evening 12th October and would have no hesitation in returning, the food and service was excellent and the staff are a credit to the this lovely restaurant.
very enjoyable evening
Had a lovely meal at the Silver Darling on Saturday night. Great service, lovely atmosphere and the food was amazing. Will definitely visit again.
Fantastic setting and glorious food. All round great place for lunch.
Food was lovely will be going back again. Staff brilliant, friendly and accommodating
Sublime food & location - this is how to do seafood
Wonderful evening, really enjoyed everything about the meal, service and atmosphere, and especially the extra touch of bringing the desert with a candle for my partner's birthday! Much appreciated and enjoyed and we will definitely be back!
Lovely food. Good service.
