“Quick Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

A fast lunch opportunity between Christmas and New Year meant a flying visit to the restuarant. Whilst quiet, the service was cheery and efficient, hot artisan bread rolls and an engaging staff made for a relaxing first impression. Simple no nonsense fish and chips beautifully cooked with a dressed rocket side salad. A little pricey, but the excellent service and the location make up for it.

Great for a good lunch off Union Street!

“Whole experience AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Been to Granite Park once before and was amazing so jumped at chance to go back for anniversary/birthday meal!! To start with I had salmon and other half had terrine presentation and flavours were 1st class. So far so good!!! Our mains came and we were not disappointed, lamb which i wouldnt usually go for but it sounded so nice was tender and cooked perfectly as were the roasted vegetables. Husband had the rock turbot, which again was beautiful so much so that i had to ask for a taste as he wasnt offering to share!!!
Service was attentive without being intrusive and every member of staff were happy at their job and obviously enjoy what they do which is lovely to see.
Finished the night in cocktail bar downstairs where atmosphere was great and again staff were brilliant!! Can't wait to return!!! :)

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Went in at 6 pm tonight without a reservation, no other diners there yet. Very warm welcome. Nice decor and general fell. Very quick service obviously as nobody else was there yet. Just had steaks but they were cooked to perfection, very tasty. Chips and veg lovely too. Certainly go back again. Not the cheapest place in town but once again you get what you pay for. I prefer to eat good food rather than cheap food.

“Fantastic food and fine service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We had a lovely meal here this week. Scallops for starter were delicious and the rib eye steak was possibly the nicest steak i have eaten outside of the USA. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall, the best meal we have had in Aberdeen and we will be back soon
