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…
Was a lovely lunch in a bright, clean and modern dining area with amazing views. Food was freshly cooked, beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. Staff provided a friendly and helpful service.
Great place love it !
Fantastic food, great service and brilliant atmosphere. Fabulous restaurant tucked away in the dock near Footdee Houses - well worth a visit
Absolutely outstanding, food and service was amazing. Couldn’t fault it.
We had a fantastic afternoon, food was delicious 🙌🏼 and the restaurant had a lovely buzz. Thank you
Great lunch. Compliments to the chef - beautifully cooked shellfish. Very attentive and professional servers. The bill was pricey, but as you’d expect from a good seafood restaurant. I’ll be back.
There need to be some music playing to boost the atmosphere and so other tables cant hear each others conversations
Excellent service and quality food! Would love to come back!
We had the best seat in the restaurant which was amazing for our first visit. We also tried oysters For the first time and the waitress was great with advising us how to eat them etc. The most was amazing as was the service. I particularly liked the Prosecco
Had the full platter with my wife, it was excellent and I think really good value. Stairs are tricky with Covid social distancing though
Excellent service, excellent food.
Great tasting food and service as always!
Had a fabulous meal there
Amazing food, good value for money and lovely atmosphere.
Lovely food in a lovely setting ❤️
We had a lovely lunch with my ninety year old parents. The staff were very attentive, the food was first class and we had a lovely view of the boats coming into the harbour. My mum has asked us to take her back when she has her 90th birthday.
We go to the Silver Darling 3 or 4 times a year and the ambience, the menu and the Staff are all terrific because of this we understand that it will cost a bit and we’re quite happy to pay the Bill whatever it is but I have to be honest with my value for money answer 😎👍🏻
lovely food & drinks
Great meal- amazing value and stunning location: Cannot fault!
Beautiful dinning experience - would ask for a seat by a window next time
Great food, great service
Beautiful setting and tasty food.
Excellent quality seafood and wine, served in a warm atmosphere with great views of the bay and harbour.
