Food was overpriced for what it was, I had fillet steak, and although medium, it was little tough. Limited choice of starters and main courses, overall was disappointed with the whole experience.

We booked (about 8 weeks ahead) for 6 of us for an evening meal with visitors from Australia. Ardoe would have been prefect for the Ambience. But when we got there we were told that the restaurant was booked for a private function. The 'dining' room that we were in lacked the ambience we would have liked for our Aussie... More

We were guests for an evening meal, invited by friends; a one night package couple. We met in a bleak, Adam's Family lounge, and talked quietly not to disturb the few other people present. We did not feel any warm welcome, and our being led through to the restaurant was a funereal affair. One Scots waitress was still attached to... More

My wife and I had an enjoyable Christmas Day lunch. The Willy Wonka theme was very well done, with the centerpiece display excellent. As we have no kids to join us in Aberdeen it was certainly a fun way to feel the kids excitement which added to the great atmosphere of the day The desserts were all very authentic looking... More

75GBP per person plus all drinks: Really not worth it. The switchover to Mercure has not done this place any favours. The service was very good, though they did all seem a bit frazzled: overstretched staffing perhaps? Our server Nickolay was very polite and attentive, as was the sidekick Daniel (?). Starters: Mum's pressed pork was fine. The veggie goats... More

Ate in the restaurant the first night. The food was delicious but too expensive to eat each night. More of a special occasion dinner than a business stay dinner.

We stayed at the hotel and had a 3 course evening meal as part of the package. Our food was excellent. My hubby is a bit fussy, so didn't fancy any of the starters, but the chef was great and let him have something from the bar menu. The restaurant was quite busy and not many staff on, but they...

This is the Ardoe Hotels dinning room which was first class from the staff service to the excellent range of menu and the fillet steak!
