2 courses for £15 what a bargain. Popped in here early on Saturday evening which gave us access to this great deal. Food was delicious and service was also good. Had not been in Howies for a number of years so this was a pleasant surprise. Will certainly be back.

Nice relaxed atmosphere with a great lunch menu, 2 courses for £10.95 or 3 for £13.95. Great range of dishes and great vegetarian options. Staff were friendly and relaxed and didn't rush us. Opted for the Vegetarian Haggis, Neeps & Tatties to start followed by the Butternut squash Risotto. Perfect portion size for lunch and very tasty.

I forgot to submit a review for Howies as I was leaving on a long trip a couple of days after our group visit, so I'm catching up now. Nearly 20 of us, mostly non-Aberdonians, on a reunion night out in a pre-booked private room (fortunately as there was a massive party taking up nearly all of the main room),... More

I came here based on a recommendation for traditional Scottish Cuisine and we really enjoyed all dishes. Food was excellently prepared in both traditional and contemporary presentations. Wines and drinks were outstanding with five different serving portions of wine from 125 ml through 1/2 bottle as well as by the bottle. Service was outstanding - staff was friendly and attentive....

This is an excellent all round restaurant. Great food, service and value for money. We tend to look at all the foreign food restaurants as our first choice and often best places to eat, however Howies provide great local produce with a modern feel, which is not complicated or too fussy. Staff are well versed in the menu and make... More

This was a 'last minute' choice for dinner, and we are so glad we made the decision. Our food was very good, and we were well looked after by our waiter. My friend and I both had sea bass specials and they were cooked perfectly. Overall a nice experience - and value for money.

Another establishment we haven't been for a while. Came here on a Friday and noticed their 2-Course Week Day Lunch Warmer for £8.95. However, be aware that Friday is NOT a weekday according to them. But we did enjoy the 2-course lunch, same food, for £10.95!

I had not been to Howies for a few years and decided to visit at lunchtime last Saturday. It had been refurbished since my last visit and has been done so to give a nice, relaxing atmosphere. The food was excellent... mushroom starter, salmon main course and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The set 2 or 3 course menu is... More

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.
