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…

We had a lovely meal for my boyfriend’s birthday. It’s such a beautiful location and a treat to watch the ships go by. The birthday surprise at dessert was excellent, the staff made sure we enjoyed our meal and made it special for us. We hope to be back soon!

Me and my girlfriend had a lovely meal in a nice quiet setting with very polite helpful staff who made dining very comfortable and enjoyable. Very fresh, good quality food and presented well. Main courses not cheap but you get what you pay for, although desserts were 10/10 and very good value. Would definitely go back and recommend to any seafood lover. Wouldn’t have minded a few more menu options.

Great food and service. Would have preferred a window table given it was a quieter night.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere good. The staff were friendly, competent and helpful. The white wine (ANA) was excellent ..... but we found the price of the wine per glass to be on the expensive side, especially as at retail level it is possible to buy a bottle for £12-£15.

This restaurant is down on the Aberdeen Pier. The atmosphere is lovely, and the food was delicious. Our servers were very accommodating and even offered to call us a cab at the end of our meal, which we sincerely appreciated because we were from out of town. We decided to try this place to celebrate our first anniversary. We were not disappointed. I think they have some of the best selections of seafood in town. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Aberdeen.

We were extremely unhappy with the service after we had our main course. The staff were clearly good friends and had a great time in the bar area and were well attended with their post shift drink. Unfortunately, they weren't so keen on seeing to the customers. We sat with empty glasses and not given dessert menus for around 20 mins. Staff went past but avoided eye contact - instead concentrating on setting up tables for the next day. The food was amazing but poor service let the restaurant down.

First visit to Silver Darling and cannot wait to return. Food was absolutely amazing. We cannot speak highly enough about the quality of food. The service of staff equaled the quality of food. The staff were extremely pleasant and made us feel very welcome.

Thank you for honouring my request for a window table to enhance this special and relaxing time with our niece. The choice of menu, the quality of food and the gracious and attentive service of the staff helped to make this a memorable day. We look forward to a return visit!
