Have been to Moon Fish many, many times, for lunch and dinner and have never had a poor experience yet. The food is fabulous, the wine and gin lists are excellent, service is superb and the atmosphere is buzzy yet laid back. A regular favourite

We have now eaten at Moon Fish Cafe a couple of times and have really enjoyed our meal each time. The menu looks simple but the food is delicious and complex. Fantastic fish! A tiny place with nice ambiance, highly recommended.

Had a really special meal here whilst visiting Aberdeen with my husband in April 2014. Beautiful food prepared with care, attention to detail, and balance of flavour. It's really not far off from Michelin Star quality, IMHO. Really splendid wines as well.

We were a bit surprised when our otherwise delicate meal was served up with some chunky chips in a bowl - but on chatting to Moon Fish's manager (who is clearly very passionate about what she does) we came to understand that in Aberdeen, it's not a meal if it doesn't feature potatoes somewhere. The chips were, of course, delicious, but as I'm not a Scot, I didn't feel the need for them alongside such beautifully and conscientiously prepared food.

Really highly recommended.
