We went to The Braided Fig based on recommendations, and we were so glad we did! It was raining when we arrived, and we were promptly were helped with coats and umbrellas and shown to a table with a view of the street outside. The waiter who served us was so kind and amiable, and he made excellent suggestions. The two other members of my party ordered hamburgers, which they enjoyed, but I got honey chicken with wontons, which was absolutely delectable (and a huge portion!). I would visit again in a heartbeat if ever back in Aberdeen! We were very pleased with our experience.

Lovely Menu choice and meg-platefuls made for a delicious (if filling) experience and the Staff were brilliant - try the Chicken breast stuffed with haggis, Ham Mash , green beans and Drambuie sauce - to die for!

Tried this place for first time tonight - was brilliant. Had soup of the day which was really tasty - tomato and pepper with mascarpone - was a big helping and roasting hot! Was blended and lovely flavour. Had main courses of the Sunday roast beef dinner which was great - big portion. Other half had venison which looked lovely, although she thought slightly overcooked for her liking. She had banana cheesecake which was fine and i had mocha coffee which was like a desert in itself! The place had a nice atmosphere and polite friendly staff. It was not the cheapest as came in at just over £60 but great for a special treat/occasion/ birthday etc.
The menu had vegetarian options too and a variety of wines available.

we had a team building event at the Braided Fig for 20 of our team, the food was good, some dishes seemed to stand out from the others, the steak, burgers and venison seemed to be the best choices, service was good, maybe a bit tight for 20 of us, but I would go back for sure.

Been here a few times and always fab. Without a doubt the best place to eat in Aberdeen! Just off of union street it's in a great location and it's a beautiful setting for any occasion, be it a quick lunch, a romantic dinner or a big celebration. The food is absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The menu changes frequently keeping things fresh but they always have the favourites on the menu.
The service is great, friendly & welcoming.
A must for anyone who hadn't yet been!
