Moon fish Cafe seem to have got everyting right in this restaurant. We enjoyed another superb meal this week with my colleagues. The menu changes regulalry depending on what produce is available and in season. I've never had the same food twice and they manage to develop the menu each time I'm there. The service is excellent, diligent but unobtrusive... More

What a great meal we had at Moonfish! Really interesting menu with lots of imaginative combinations. We struggled to choose and ended up pinching stuff off each others plates. The squid cracker was a particular favourite! The cheese board was also fantastic and definitely worth paying the surcharge for. Portion sizes are just right, so you can have 3 courses... More

Dined here a good few times, consistently first class food, menu is rightly limited to fresh/available with seafood major influence. Lunch on busy Saturday afternoon - mussels vast and excellent quality/flavours, sardines sublime flavours, Hake and Risotto both fantastic. Staff are always very friendly, attentive and add to the excellent experience. Superb.

I'm not a big fan of gin but with the wide variety on offer (some great Scottish options as well) I had to try and have to admit it was a good start to a superb meal. This is a real gem of a place with interesting food choices which are well prepared. So definitely worth seeking this place out.

After living in Aberdeen for 15 years I had never heard of this place until taken by a work colleague. It is a small but excellent restaurant just off the main drag. All the food was great and it is an interesting menu. Will be returning soon.

Tastefully decorated with attention to detail. Small fresh individual flower arrangements on each table. Good gin recommendation, large variety of gins. Beautifully presented I was recommended to try a Brockman's intensely smooth gin. It was served with a fresh infusion of orange, raspberry and blueberry tonic water. Really lovely drink Started off with fresh bread and olive oil/balsamic vinegar and... More

If you are visiting Aberdeen I'd strongly recommend Moonfish. We went for an evening. Easy online booking( essential ). Was very busy but lovely atmosphere and excellent service.Not cheap but reasonable for the quality of food in a city not blessed with too many original restaurants.

Nice little cafe with an interesting menu. Worth a visit. Quite central though off the main road making it a cozy little place.

Dinner for three on a Saturday evening. Nearly everything about the food and wine (a beautiful Sancerre) was excellent. All the boxes were ticked. The Halibut main was particularly delicious - though the fish was perhaps a tad overcooked. There were smiles all around after the deserts. All tables were occupied and atmosphere was lively. This made the centre of... More
