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…
Lovely meal served by attentive and friendly staff
Lovely meal, the halibut was delicious. Felt very safe and the staff were very accommodating and friendly.
Love the place and everything was perfect for my friends 50th birthday.
Excellent food and first class service! Only complaint was the restaurant was quite cold as we were first ones in a 12pm on a cold windy day.
Another lovely afternoon spent at The Silver Darling. Amazing food, wonderful service and simply the perfect way to spend a Sunday! See you again very soon!
A very positive experience. The food was very tasty and well presented.
Our first experience of dining at the Silver Darling, we'll certainly return.
Food was delicious! And our waitress was lovely! Only thing that let the evening down a little was how long it took to get drinks and when we asked the waiter I felt like it was a inconvenience. Other than that it was a lovely evening celebrating our engagement.
First time we have been we thoroughly enjoyed it was an absolute treat so relaxed and got the perfect view can't wait to come back staff were so friendly
Fantastic evening with exceptional fresh seafood
First class meal & very enjoyable evening.
Excellent service and perfect portion size!
Really good return to form for the silver darling. We had the oyster (fabulous as always), the mussels (Korean style) which were delicious and unusual. The wood pigeon was a revelation and the highlight of the meal. We also had Hake and the Halibut, both very good. The creme brûlé and the crumble were nice. Things that could have been improved: the phone ring volume is surprisingly loud, and goes against the grain of the atmosphere (not a big deal but the silver darling is good enough that it’s the very small things you notice!). The service was really prompt and attentive, one side dish was forgotten about but when reminded they offered to bring it but we decided against and to move to dessert. Suggestions: wine pairing options or a tasting menu is clearly the next step for the establishment. Will be back.
Very nice meal and excellent service provided
Amazing food and champers!! The prawns were out of this world!! Thank you for a wonderful evening
First time coming here and it did not disappoint. Great service, amazing food and a good wine selection! We will be back.
Wonderful lunch. What a treat. Food beautifully cooked and service impeccable. Thank you. Great to be back. Felt Covid safe throughout!!!!
Fabulous food, service and setting
Had a very enjoyable evening using locally produced food will definitely be back
Atmosphere was only let down back lack of background music and the building was cold but otherwise brilliant food - service perfect - really enjoyed it
Lovely food and excellent service. We will be back again in the not to distant future
Lovely food, great views as always, we really enjoyed our lunch. Attentive service.
Lovely food and service great from very friendly and efficient staff. Had lunch yesterday everything fab.
I had an excellent time. The establishment was clean and orderly, I felt very safe given the restriction needs in the face of the pandemic. The staff remembered that my partner has a dairy free diet and provided a list of dishes that suite her. We ordered the Silver Darling Platter to share for an afternoon dinner, which seems pricey at $70 but could have fed a small village. Every item tasted better then than the last, even the chips and coleslaw were the best I have had. As this was a special day out, we ordered dessert as well with crème brûlée and sorbet, again every item more delicious with every bite. Highly recommend this restaurant. My brother is a food critic in Chicago and I can not wait to recommend when he is able to visit. Five stars, will return, and Epstein didn't kill himself.
