This was my second visit, the first many years ago was a pleasant experience, unfortunately the second wasn't. After waiting 45 mins we were informed they'd forgotten to order our starters, then there was a problem with the main. My wife and I both ordered fish, mine was cold and her's wasn't cooked and had to be returned to the kitchen. We will not be rushing back here.

I have gone there twice for lunch. The food is exquiste. Lunch is not badly priced though I am sure dinner can be expensive. Right by the Aberdeen breakwater overlooking the beach, this is a great spot to dine at.
Better make reservations though as it can get full even on a working day for lunch.

Excellent fish and good service but rather expensive. The menu is rather short of choice although we certainly enjoyed our meals. The wine list is interesting. The service was very good and we left having had a most pleasant evening

We had a living social deal for lunch - it was first class! The service was superb, the food was excellent and a very good atmosphere/ location! Unobtrusive but very good service! Beautiful view - would be equally good on a wild windy rainy day or beautiful sunny one! We thoroughly enjoyed it and will most definitely go back!

For no particular reason we have not been to the Silver Darling in quite a while but we do intend to be regular customers in the future. Our lunch was fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The waiting team were very pleasant and professional. The overall visit was enhanced I have to say by the interesting views over the harbour and being able to look out to sea - and for us - today - the sun shone brightly.
