We have dined at the Muchalls Bistro many times and not once have we been disappointed. The food is always of excellent quality and with plenty of choice on the menu, Pricing is also very reasonable for the standard of food and service. I do feel it is very rude and unnecessary to mention the proprietors wife, in a negative... More

We have visited the Bistro many times as it is lovely to have a nice restaurant in the area and it would be a shame to lose it through lack of custom so we try to support it rather than go further afield if we can. The food is nice but rather unimaginative and the core menu has remained the... More

I visited the Muchalls Bistro for a lunch with some girlfirends. Our waiter was a lovely young chap who gave us just the perfect amount of chatting time in between courses. The menu was varied and interesting, everything we ordered was just delicious, couldn't fault anything. Well worth a visit.

This was our second visit and we have booked to go again next week. A little out of the way but a very friendly welcome, attentive staff, an inovative menu and superb food make it worth a visit! Value for money, many courses very reasonably priced

I have taken friends and family to the Bistro before and always been delighted - especially with the unusual menu...the service was always a bit slow and "unsmiling". On this occasion I booked as usual - and was asked to come early as the table (for two) was booked again at 8.30pm and they were very busy. Oh yes -... More

I will attempt to address some points made in this "review" as briefly as possible. 16 customers in Bistro early evening not 6, all tables taken by 8.15. 1 starter not available and 1 vegetarian dish, for which an alternative was offered. Only salmon available ? - on the specials board that night were grilled mussels, smoked haddock chowder, baked... More

We have been going to Muchalls Bistro since it opened and always thoroughly enjoy it. Always interesting food and wines available. Top quality. We have even taken our toddler for lunch and he loved his homemade fishcakes! Will continue to return.

I have a wonderful meal with my family we all had beef burgers. The meat was of a very high standard, very fresh and juicy. The service was great and so was the atmosphere. The price was good and the dessert was even better!

Not sure what happened with the reviewer from 26 March but we couldn't fault the place on Saturday 9 April. Great atmosphere for a relaxing adult dining experience for the 4 of us. Delicious, fresh with good specials, we wonder how they manage it when comparing prices to some of Aberdeen's so called 'finest'!
