Living in the area I've been going to the palm court for years to eat and drink. Now it's not the cheapest but for the money you can usually guarantee you will get a great lunch. Haven't eaten there since Christmas so thought we would head round since a nice day. We had burgers and steak sandwich, had something similar... More

Very pleased I found this restaurant while staying in Aberdeen. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, decor is lovely and menu choices are very good. Prices are average but in fact too cheap for the quality of food! The food was outstanding - will definitely return!

Lovely food at very reasonable prices, good selection and an extensive bar. Outside seating (nice for summer) and plenty of onsite parking.

2 hours for 2 courses for 4 people was ridiculous. Manager said this was because there was 2 functions on that night. He asked if we wanted a drink whilst we waited even longer. We said ok and 2 of us had a glass of wine. When we got the bill he had actually charged us for the drinks. I... More

Our office Christmas Lunch was held here and it was excellent. There was plenty of choice and here is a place where you did not have to choose before you were there! Often you have to do this then feel like something else on the day. The staff were great very attentive and given the amount of people being looked... More

Visited for company Christmas lunch on the last Friday before Christmas - the busiest day of the year! Very impressed - food was excellent and plentiful - it's not often that I can't eat everything put in front of me. Service was efficient and very friendly. There was a great seasonal atmosphere which added to the enjoyment. Price was very... More

Turned up for Sunday lunch and was greeted by the manager who took us to our table and informed us that there was the usual lunch menu and there was the Christmas menu which was a three course menu for £24.50. We were just wanting one course so would opt for the standard menu. The manager asked the waitresses if... More
