My husband surprised me with a meal here for our anniversary because I love seafood, we really enjoyed our food. However the atmosphere is not very relaxing and almost clinical. I can't comment on value as I was not allowed to see the bill. I understand that decor is a matter of personal taste, however it's a bit like eating... More

I decided to have lunch in this restaurant because I read tripadvisor reviews and I had great expectations. The food was fine but not fantastic as I presumed; probably the lunch menu is a reduced and light version of the dinner one. The bill is convenient.

Had a great lunch here this week - relaxed atmosphere, friendly, attentive staff, excellent food: a hearty bowl of mussells with chorizo in a creamy liquor followed by a melting round of braised beef on a bed of peas and barley with a tarragon sauce, which were inexpensive for food of this standard. The chef has rightly reached the semi-finals... More

Moon fish continues to delight - a small friendly eatery that delivers much more than you would expect at a cafe! Tucked round the corner from one of Aberdeen's main shopping centres it is a favourite for Saturday lunch. The choice of four starters, four mains and puddings offers innovative and interesting food combinations beautifully presented. Perhaps not surprisingly given... More

Lunch with my wife to celebrate her birthday. A very high standard for an eatery that calls its self a cafe! Chose Mussels with chizo for a starter, followed by another fish, while my wife enjoyed soup followed by chicken with prunes cooked with barley. The service was exemplary and tghey had time to talk with the customers. (i should... More

We lived in Aberdeen for two and half years and many of my colleagues kept mentioning the Moon Fish Cafe. It is a very small place and very popular, that coupled with my travel schedule made getting a reservation difficult. Once we went we realized it was certainly worth the effort to get a reservation. The food is exceptionally good.... More

Delicious, mussels and fennel in a typical moule mariner sauce; so good and tasty, decent sized portion, lucky I was hungry in order to fit in the following braised beef on pearl barley soaked in tarragon sauce so green and absolutely scrumptious. Beef falling apart melting in your mouth perfect and filling for a dreach and rainy day in Aberdeen... More

I was full of anticipation at eating here but I thought the standard of the food just OK. There was nothing especially wrong but I had the steak which was not as melt in the mouth as I thought a place of this standing could achieve. The staff were friendly and attentive but another gripe was that we waited over... More

Great food, too noisy. Would like to experience the taster menu. But the fish dish was great, would definitely return.

Having lived in Aberdeen have always wanted to try this place. It is such a small intimate space. Very relaxed atmosphere.. The menu was varied something for everyone! Staff were attentive without being to intrusive. The food was delicious we had a 3 course meal. As the menu is subject to change it would be hard to recommend something. But... More
