A late lunch with friends on a Saturday afternoon and Howies on Victoria Street is a guaranteed destination for tasty food at a very good price. There's a 2 course set menu for under £10 and when we visited there was a promotion knocking £2 off even that. To make things even better it's BYO, with a £4 corkage.
The ingredients were fresh tasting and the food is prepared to a good standard. I had the seafood chowder followed by the shin of beef, which I thought was excellent (albeit the fries - which came free for some reason - were a occasionally a little undercooked). My wife had the onion soup (excellent) and the catch of the day, which was a seafood risotto with king prawns. Although the risotto was nice it was a little underwhelming and didn't really taste much in the way of seafood.
The service is friendly and although we were on the last sitting for lunch we were never rushed and it was only until 30 minutes before the evening sittings were due to start that the waiter offered us the bill.
Time and time again Howies provides good food at a very good price.
