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…
Thoroughly enjoyable visit on Sunday for lunch; food was superb & such a lovely setting.
Lovely meal with lovely friendly service.
First time back since the 'new look' and was very pleased. Couldn't fault a thing.
We had a lovely meal. Food and service was excellent. The only thing was, my husband and son both had mussels and a finger bowl with water and a small towel each, would have been nice to refresh their hands after handling the mussels.
Excellent meal and excellent service 😊
Efficient, friendly service without being overbearing and amazing food made a birthday meal extra special. Thank you Silver Darling. We'll definitely be back!
We try & take something different every time we go, Food is always top notch...
Great food and excellent service. Would definitely recommend to my friends.
The restaurant was better than I could have hoped for. The food was amazing, the staff was very attentive, and the atmosphere was exactly what I wanted. I could not rate The Silver Darling any higher.
Fantastic selection of seafood dishes alongside some great land dishes too
The food is incredible and of a very high standard! Truly delicious!
Great food, local catches and on my doorstep. Definitely visit again
Had a lovely lunch, highly recomend it.
the staff were absolutely lovely, and the food was delightful. Cheers!
Asked the waitress about something on the menu and she “didn’t really know as ive never tried them”
Great lunch with family & friends. Superb food all round & very attentive service. Our waiter was top class. Love the location and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience with our guests, showing them the best of Aberdeen hospitality.
Lovely, helpful friendly staff & delicious food,
Fantastic food would definitely recommend the Silver Darling. Unfortunately our sides we ordered never came out 2 x bread and 2 x sweet potato fries. I asked for our sides when our main course came out but we only received our fries once we had just about finished. No bread.
Another delicious 3 course meal at the Silver Darling. Could not fault the food or service in any way, brilliant. Food is fresh with great flavours and ingredients to match. Would recommend to anyone who asks where to go in Aberdeen.
Blown awe by the venue. As one of your waiters said to me: "not a bad office view!". I've ate in many high quality restaurants in the world; Silver Darling is right up there with the very best. Made to feel very welcome as a solo diner. Not sure if I'll be heading back to the Aberdeen again, but if I am then a visit to your restaurant will be 1st on my 'must do' list.
Delicious food with wonderful views. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely come back.
