We returned to the Aberdeen with memories of our last visit - huge , perfectly cooked steak and friendly staff. We were not disappointed. The large eye fillet cooked just how I liked it, very good service - not pushy just attentive. The pork belly was a treat.
The pate starter was a good size - best shared by two. It must be made in house as it was fresh and unique. Lovely
We didn't try the desert menu this time as my steak was just huge and we waddled out of there very happy.
We will be back!

We wanted a very special restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, namely reaching the milestone of 65 years and superannuation entitlement !! We found it in Aberdeen on Broadway.
Nothing was a problem to the wonderful staff, we phoned in because of running late, 'no problem Sir, your table is yours for the evening '. What a great start. From the moment we did arrive we had wonderful service from two staff members, not pushy, just really friendly and helpful explaining the menu. Often at restaurants there may be one disappointing dish, not at the Aberdeen, every dish from the delicious starters to the desserts was enjoyed by us. We all commented on the ambience of the restaurant, perfect, great atmosphere.
We are looking forward to the next special occasion at the Aberdeen ! Thanks guys.

We went last Friday, 30/8/2013, beautiful food, wonderful service, fantastic ambiance , the waitresses are lovely, and the wait was minimal considering the place was packed, it was so cold outside, inside we were warm and toasty:-) Thanks Aberdeen, we will be back.

Taken there by some colleagues who were locals. Inspired choice. Table service could not be faulted. Only a few diners in on a Monday night, but the staff showed they knew their jobs. I ordered the 500gm rib eye on the bone. Medium rare. Ever tried to cook one of those? Well these guys did it to perfection. It was absolutely delicious. And the quality of the cut was superb. A congenial place to eat, and wow, what a steak!

We really enjoyed our meal at Aberdeen. We have dined twice before, once was good, one was not, so we were looking forward to what was served up.

We wanted champagne cocktails for starters, but these weren't on the menu. The bar-person came out and gave us a couple of options, and they were delicious.

The entree was deep fried camberbert, however it was a whole camembert and when we cut into it it procedeed to spill everywhere. This was obviously overdone. We recommended to the maitre de that they make this into smaller pieces which would not need as much cooking. The steaks were delicious, however, and came with great accompaniments. I also had the baked tomatoes which were lovely.

For dessert we opted for the passionfruit cheesecake which was really good... a real baked cheesecake. The accompanying mini-cocktail was a great accompaniment.

It was quite noisy with several large tables, however our waitress asked if we wanted to move to a quieter table, which we took advantage of. This was a great touch.

We would definately dine again.
