Boasting an unrivalled location with panoramic views of both the beach, the historic fishing village of Footdee (Fittie to locals) and Aberdeen’s harbour, means that, no matter where you sit you’ll have a spectacular view. Watch ships from all around the world come into port, marvel at the dolphins and seals bobbing in the bay, or even watch the local fishing boats bring home the catch of the day, most of which ends up in our kitchen.

We had a great evening with you - I booked the table after forgetting the date of my wedding anniversary the evening before. My bisque and fish were good - we were sitting beside the bar which I accepted as I had booked very late and I think you were caught our by a couple of large late booking sbut it didn't spoil the evening for us (apart from the fact that I designated myself as the driver). I will be back with friends for lunch very soon. ps taking the money off the bill for our first drinks was appreciated. I will be back

Great night, great food and good service. All you are missing is the little 1%ers. Two examples from our night. 1. We advised the server that we would be sharing our courses. From here there are two 1% suggestions. Offer the dishes to come out at different times in an order designated by us or ensure there is an option for the easy sharing of dishes (a second plate for instance). 2. Correct items for the dish/drink being served. Being served red wine in a white wine glass is extremely below the quality of restaurant you are and being served mussels without the correct fork makes eating mussels much more difficult (also, no spoon was provided with the mussel dish). With all that said. Staff was attentive, price was good for the quality of food and produce, wine list was ok (could be more extensive) and everyone was friendly/helpful when asked. My suggestions are based on taking the restaurant to the next level.

The loud “ding “ that alerted the staff to food being ready to serve was quite annoying as we were sitting close to the bar. The music was also a bit loud. Staff were great.

Superb in every way! We had booked the private dining room to celebrate the retirement of a colleague. The food, service and atmosphere made it a glorious evening.

Last night was our first time at Silver Darling. I took my husband there for his birthday because he always wanted to go, but never got round to it. Everything about the experience was 5*! The staff are very attentive, the food was amazing! The building & interior is beautiful. We would highly recommend this place. We will be back soon. Well worth going to if you love seafood. Cannot fault it all.

Excellent. Looking forward to my next visit. It's unusual that I fancy virtually everything on a restaurant menu, but I would happily choose anything on theirs.

Each course was a delight to savour, well presented and delicious, only complimented by the ambiance, views and care from the staff. For a romantic evening the Silver Darling is at the top of my list.

Amazing service. Was a very big help with my pregnant partner on what she could eat. Never had such a friendly service. Was a great 30th birthday meal.
