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…

Good location and dining room, especially if at harbour entrance side.

I have had two visits in about 3 weeks and I am just a wee bit disappointed in the lack of change / limited extent of the menu. Actual portion sizes of fish need to be increased. I thought Gordon’s was everyone’s pre-dinner drink of choice - but you don’t think so!!

Went with 2 friends and my wife. Great view from the restaurant. Food was fantastic. Had the scallops and then lobster tail. Food quality was excellent. Price surprised me. Thought it would be expensive but pleasantly surprised it was similar to other quality restaurants. This may become my favourite. You must give it a shot

The service was the biggest let down for our group of 11 people. The waitress had an attitude over a slice of bread - ridiculous. Wouldn't be rushing back.

We had a very enjoyable evening. The food was amazing as was the view and we would definitely be back when we’re in Aberdeen.

Lovely setting, food good but not outstanding, seated at table in front of bar, staff kept going behind my chair which I found irritating.

Poor selection of wine and very average food. Seen better toilet seats in a pub. Very over rated.

We were taking clients out to lunch and wanted somewhere a cut above the average restaurant, and where we could all park easily! The decor is pleasant and the views are lovely. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. Portions are quite small for the price but the flavours are so good it's not an issue. Everything is prepared and cooked beautifully. A very enjoyable meal, would definitely recommend The Silver Darling for a special outing.

Kjempegod mat, men jeg hadde bestilt bord i god tid i forveien for å sikre et bord med utsikt.... Vi fikk det eneste bordet UTEN utsikt. Veldig skuffet over det. Hele hensikten med å velge akkurat denne restauranten var muligheten til utsikt til vær og vind og omgivelsene rundt, det var det som skulle sette rammen rundt et ellers fortreffelig måltid.

Unfortunately there was a large corporate party of 25 in the restaurant at the same time. Because of the hard surfaces it was very difficult to hear the waitress or talk to each other. I would have appreciated the opportunity to choose an alternative date rather than be included in the speech making. The food and view were both excellent.

My colleague said best fish and chips ever and myself and other colleague had superb Thai Monkfish curry .The Bon Bon’s for starters delicious too and so light. Lovely lady called Barbara and her colleague couldn’t have been nicer . Already booked another dinner !!

I feel the service could be improved we waited quite a long time for the order to be attended too and food to arrive would maybe have liked offer of bread or olives to snack on while waiting had to ask twice to top up water maybe just leave jug on the table ! Table was not wiped before we had our sweet these extra things do make a difference to the experience food was great though ! Oysters were fantastic 7
