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…
The service was excellent, however I felt that there should have been more”seafood specials” on the menu and I also would like to see the the menu change each season to showcase seasonal fish, meat and vegetables. I would only return if the menu changed frequently.
a great way to celebrate my birthday with friends. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Fantastic meal, lovely place, will definitely be back. Highly recommend
Vi hadde bestilt bord lang tid i forveien, men fikk beskjed samme dag om at vi hadde bordet til 21:30. Lite hyggelig. Servitørene var mest oppsatt på at vi skulle bli ferdige å gå. Slik at de kunne dekke på til de neste som skulle komme. Fisken var gammel og tør. Smakte lite. Kveite og potetstappe uten saus. Krabbe-forett var den beste retten. Isen var tatt opp og lagt i fryseren igjen, slik at den hadde krystaller i seg.
Meal was lovey and nice atmosphere
Lovely place for lunch with a view to enjoy.
it wound of been appreciated to be given fresh bread with meal,particularly with starter.
Excellent food and service. Not too expensive, paid more in Siena for bread and cheese and a coffee. First visit but not the last
Great Oysters and a great view. I had a truly beautiful evening here!
Wonderful food and service on 5th Nov big advantage that we were able to watch some of fireworks from the comfort of the beautiful surroundings of Silver Darling. Looking forward to our next visit soon
Menu exciting and whatever you choose is a fusion of flavours that undoubtedly compliment the main ingredient. Went with family and friends for birthday lunch and chose cod as main dish - absolutely boootiful! Dressed crab starter was amazing and rounded off with rum and raisin panacotta with caramelised pineapple (with a candle for the birthday girl). So yummy. Booked for Christmas with family so looking forward to that
Food excellent, staff very helpful and attentive
This is the first time we have been and we loved it. We will definitely be back. Th nicest waiter served us, food was delish and view lovely - even although it was dark. I think it’s my new favourite restaurant in Aberdeen!
Great food, amazing service, and lovely location xx
Lovely meal! Mussels and fish & chips are highly recommended.
One of the best meals I’ve had!! The room was far too dark though need some more light! The mussels marinere had no creamy sauce just chunks of garlic. The linguine was totally amazing! Huge scallops and prawns! The brownie pudding was to die for! Excellent service! We did have quite a long wait between starter and mains and our mains were a tad cool. But mouthwatering!! Will be back! Thank you for a lovely night!
Amazing service, great food and fantastic view. This was our first visit for my husbands birthday and the staff made the night very special. I will be returning very soon. Thanks
Food was lovely and it was nice to see all of the boats coming in and out of the harbour over the evening - great atmosphere! Would definitely recommend! Will be back :)
Lovely tasting and beautifully presented food with helpful friendly staff.
Great food everything was perfect!
excellent food and service although there was one spell when there were no staff to be seen and one of our party needed something. great choices and all tasted as fresh as you would expect. The wine was a bit pricey but not outrageous. delightfully presented by the chef. very good indeed all round
Fabulous food with matching views Friendly service and will be making it one of our favourites to return
Great evening, superb food and atmosphere.
So accommodating and relaxed. Felt happy to be there with no pressure in any way. We all had beautifully cooked food with lovely choices. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful and sensitive to needs. Thank you for adding to my daughters 21st birthday in such a positive way.
Table of 8 attended for dinner, food was delicious, setting was lovely and the staff were helpful. Will definitely be back
