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…
Fantastic location, very professional staff providing excellent service and amazing food. Couldn’t ask for anything more
Great food and service. Lovely staff and unique location. Overall, an excellent experience!! We’ll definitely be back soon!
The food was delicious and the menu provided a pleasantly varied selection.
Exceptional food, service and view.
Had a great night at the meet the wine maker event, great food and lovely wines nicely paired. Can't wait for the next one.
Our group of 16 loved our dinner thanks. Everything was terrific from start to finish.
Excellent event night with the winemaker . Enjoyed every minute .
Good food but shamelessly overpriced for the quantity. Service unsolicitous.
Lovely food and beautiful views -so glad we got to visit.
Beautiful setting, exquisite food and an outstanding view.
As always, just absolutely fabulous. The location, the atmosphere, the food, the team....all first class. My most favourite place to watch the world go by with amazing food and service. Thank you Team SD.
Food great, sweet views. Staff were tremendous
Brilliant service. Halibut was incredible!
Very nice restaurant with interesting views and excellent food and atmosphere
Everything was perfect for my girlfriends birthday. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive and the meal and drinks were great. Will definitely be back
Cuisine très moyenne, pas du tout à la hauteur de sa réputation. Accueil et service corrects.
I have sent an email already to say how much we enjoyed our special lunch yesterday. The food was fabulous, the wine delicious and our waiter - exceptional ! He made our anniversary lunch great with his knowledge, his professionalism and his lovely personality! Thank you .
as always lovely views great ambience and very good food
My sister and I could not fault the food or service, we shared the full house platter for lunch, which was cooked to perfection. Sadly the scottish oysters were unavailable, however the Irish ones that were served, I would definitely recommend and try again! Unfortunately we didnt catch the names of our waiters on Sunday afternoon, but they were so friendly and attentive, it created such a lovely atmosphere, and to top it off we could watch the dolphins from our tables view. Very happy customer's.
Amazing food, definitely be back
An excellent meal, first class service and a great location.
The scallop appetizer was sort of bland, but the scallops were incredibly tender. The halibut entree was delicious!! As for service, I felt rushed and I dined at 2:30 PM. The waitress hardly wanted to answer any of my questions about the menu and seemed perturbed that I ordered an appetizer and then wanted to decide on my main. A second waitress was much nicer and noticed if I needed a drink refill. My seat was in the middle so it was hard to get a view of dolphins and passing ships. I would ask for a window table. Even though I gave it a four star, I would most likely not go back due to poor service by the young waitress (not the main waitress).
Excellent table allocated for our lunch party of four celebrating my wife's birthday. Table was ready, staff prompt and pleasant. The food was fantastic and as always we enjoyed the views from and the ambiance of the Silver Darling. Thank you.
Absolutely lovely. The service, the food, and beautiful location makes this one of my best restaurant experience ever. Will definitely be back if we visit Aberdeen again. Thank you!
Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere and delicious food.
