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 food was wonderful as was the view from our table. I highly recommend the restaurant.
Fabulous setting and food was excellent. Booked for my daughter's birthday so possibly a small acknowledgement of that would have made it 5 star all round. Staff were very busy which is great to see on a Tuesday night but meant they were rushing about a bit. Will definitely be back and will recommend
Will definitely be back. The was our first visit. It won't be our last.
Lovely food, relaxed atmosphere service not rushed, very enjoyable evening we will definitely come back
Lovely food great services, Although it would have been nice to see a hot sweet on the menu, but cannot fault anything.
Not as good as I thought it would be. But reasonable all the same. Stairs looked like they hadn’t been swept for a while.
Tried to book a table many times, always last minute, never successful until now. Seen many Aberdeen restaurants already but this was by far my best eXperience. Great food, sublime views, nice atmosphere and even decent coffee!
Had a really nice dinner here for my wife's birthday! It was a tad more casual than I'd expected, but we had a lovely time. Food and service were top notch, and we will be back.
Fantastic evening at the Silver Darling. Setting is tremendous as was the service and food. Highly recommended.
Very nice atmosphere, beautiful view at the sea, beach and ships. Polite staff and delicious meals.
This was my third visit since the relaunch. The restaurant is definitely moving in the right direction. The menu has been changed. The portion sizes seem to have increased since my last visit. One minor problem was that our side dish had been forgotten and arrived when we were 3/4 through our mains.
Excellent repas dans un cadre très agréable. Le personnel est aux petits soins. Nous y reviendrons dés que l'occasion se présentera.
Cannot fault anything about the Silver Darling, outstanding food and a very nice place to eat. Staff are excellent and do everything they can to ensure you have a nice meal.
Good morning, I dined on Friday evening and found my experience to be OK. It never met my expectations in terms of service. From the minute we arrived the girl who approached us (not welcomed) was very blunt, cold and no emotion. The food was good but again, expected a little more. There was one point of the evening a girl who had nothing to do with our table came up with a very happy smile and asked my wife about her prawn (because there was no crab) cocktail as she had made them herself, a few more of her in the place would enhance the experience.
1st visit, we had a lovely evening, service was great, food was fantastic! We will be back again!
Loved it - great food, great service and will be back again - well done
the fish was perfectly cooked and our lunch a very pleasant experience we like the new menu format
Good location, nice atmosphere. Would be happy yo go back there.
A really lovely restaurant - amazing views, great atmosphere and beautiful, fresh food.
fabulous venue..great staff..lovely food
Lovely food and great presentation but portions could have been a bit bigger for the price. Great views. Friendly staff. A few more choices on the menu would be nice. Coming back soon
The food is even more delicious than previous visits. This is a 'must' experience on every visit to Aberdeen. Excellent wine list too.
Very good food and service, thank you for a great experience!
Will be back enjoyed everything me and husband
Food is great but service was a bit cold and not helpful. My friend ordered the burger and was not asked the cooking of the meat. He asked later and the waitress tokd us it's only well done (as it was a mix of meats). He was not asked to change as he would have preferred blue. By the way this is the first restaurant ever i have to pay for bread. As a french i think it's awful especially as we're not told.
