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 received a confirmation on the day of my reservation but when I arrived at the restaurant it was closed. I then received an email asking how my meal was. Very poor not to update the confirmation and feedback notifications.
What a waste of time
Excellent food as always, were very kind to seat us even though we were held up in arriving for our reservation. Fantastic service. A highlight in Aberdeen.
Our 1st meal out after lockdown eased, excellent food, great price due to Eat Out, Help Out scheme. I would go again even if is not half price,
Thank you for a great experience During difficult times
Had a great meal and very pleasant staff. Great lunch out before the lock down!!!!!
As always a fantastic experience, menu was great with so many choices that I fancied. Food was excellent, the scallops followed by pork tenderloin for me and my wife had the red pepper bhaji followed by monk fish scampi. Looking forward to returning again soon
Was lucky to have my Birthday Lunch here, as a day later Aberdeen went back into lockdown. Very sad for the staff The food was excellent, cannot fault anything. We shared the Full House Platter, which was outstanding, really liked the home cured beetroot gravadlax as with the Oysters. My Main was the Jumbo Haddock and chips, the fish and batter was perfect, not a great fan of these large chunky chip’s, that’s my only negative comment, apart from that. Excellent.
Brilliant lunch , fantastic to see you open again
Great food and view. Well run with good social distancing measures in place.
Great food, amazing view, best restaurant in Aberdeen
We really enjoyed dining here, friendly staff, kept us informed of specials etc.Lovely setting and food. All measures in place to keep people safe without it feeling too obvious.
A wonderful experience amazing food and excellent service. We will definitely be back.
Absolutely fantastic meal and the service was relaxed but impeccable
Fabulous all round as usual. Can’t wait to go back
Excellent visit Will definitely return
Food fantastic. Service great. Definitely will be returning.
First visit and really enjoyed our visit. Food was delicious and we were served very quick.
Couldn’t fault the food at all - the Seam Bream Ceviche and Scallops were superb for starters and the Sea Bass and Halibut for mains very tasty, accompanied by lovely hand cut chips. Service was also first class so a fantastic lunch all round
We were a bit disappointed in the conditions for. Prevention o COVID, no staff had masks on at any time during the evening and they I’d not adhere to social distancing, I hope the menus had been wiped down between customers but it didn’t feel like they had. We just felt more could have been done for prevention and protection considering we were eating finger food at times with no water bowl just a napkin .
Fantastic service and delicious food. Will definitely be back!
Fantastic from start to finish 👍
Amazing plase to go and try sea food. We went for a dinner with my partner and really enjoyed it;) Recomend.
Everything was just tops
