We booked a table at the restaurant for Sunday lunch when visiting our daughter who lives in Aberdeen. Smart but unimposing on the outside we were not prepared for the opulent styling and decor inside. When so many restaurants have gone for a pared back, minimalist and contemporary look it was lovely to enjoy the dark walls, sumptuous fabrics and beautifully starched white table linen. The service did not disappoint and the young team of waiting staff were friendly, knowledgeable and discretely efficient. There is a set price 2 or 3 course menu with sufficient choice to suit all. You start with an amuse-bouche followed by freshly made bread and are served a palate cleanser, on this occasion a sharp lemon sorbet, between courses. All our starters were delicious and beautifully presented and the entree equally good. The roast beef was particularly superb and we appreciated a generous selection of locally sourced and seasonal vegetables not just a micro carrot and some ‘foam’ on the plate.
We did manage to share a taster plate of deserts and a birthday treat was delivered to our daughter to make the occasion extra special for her.
The chef Craig visited the restaurant and spoke to everyone which was a nice touch, loved the tartan trews!
No detail had been overlooked to make this a wonderful restaurant. You know a place is good when you are jealous of their cloakrooms !
A most enjoyable and special Sunday lunch. Just a pity it’s so far away from our home but glad it’s not in town or you would never be able to book a table!
