Can't fault anything about Howies.......... apart from the portion sizes. Big plates/platters but not enough in/on them. Not just my view, the other five people with me also commented on how small the portion sizes were.More

I'm sorry. I do not know the answer to that as I have not dined there with children. They do not advertise a Children's Menu.

About 10 mins at an average speed as it's not far away. Up Holburn Street onto Union Street then left up Chapel Street and it's halfway up on the right hand side.

Refurbished January 2015. Great fresh seasonal food prepared to order. 2 Large dining areas and 2 Private Dining rooms. Set prices & a la carte. Central Aberdeen. Informal, great value, well established. Excellent wine list. Whether a small intimate dinner for two, business lunch for 12 or a wedding party Howies is the perfect venue.
