Aberdeen - Eating and Drinking

You'll find a wealth of great places for eating and drinking on an Aberdeen city break. With its busy harbour and huge fish market, it's hard not to associate Aberdeen with seafood and that's just for starters! The menu of the top places to eat and drink in Aberdeen can be seen below.

Silver Darling
This rooftop restaurant offers terrific views of Aberdeen's coastline and harbour. The fabulous local seafood on the menu is as fresh as it gets. Highly recommended in the Good Food Guide.

Stage Door Restaurant
Steaks are the speciality here, but there are lots of other culinary delights gracing the enticing menu. Situated in Aberdeen's cultural centre, near His Majesty's Theatre and the Music Hall, the pre-theatre menus are always popular.

Café 52
If you like the sort of place where you can linger a while after eating, where the waiters are laid-back and friendly and the chef pops out to say hello, then this unique restaurant is the place to go. The specials are in a league of their own.

Poldinos Restaurant
A slice of Italy in the north of Scotland, Poldinos has been an Aberdeen institution for over 30 years. For pizza, pasta and a perfectly chilled glass of Pinot Grigio, there's no place better.

The Beautiful Mountain
This unpretentious little café is a great place to head for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon snack. The homemade soup, sandwiches and tempting array of cakes are made with local and organic ingredients, where possible.

Books and Beans
Serving up what's arguably the best coffee in the city, this quaint little café has a brilliant collection of second-hand books. Grab an armchair and go on a literary adventure. There's also high-speed internet access, perfect for emailing home or checking out places to go.

Halo Restaurant
For pizza, pasta and char grilled Mediterranean delights, this buzzing city centre restaurant takes a bit of beating. The service is friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and the prices won't blow the budget.

The Albyn
Serving up fine food, cool cocktails and a wonderful array of fine wines, The Albyn makes the perfect venue for a great night out. Live music at the weekends and big screens showing all the major sporting events.
