Spent a rainy day in Aberdeen, and Molly's Bar was within a stone's throw of the Maritime Museum and looked like a good spot for lunch. Attached to the Douglas Hotel, the bar was very stylish - so nice that I thought twice about taking our horde of youngsters, but they were made most welcome. Food was OK, but pretty average choice. Service was very friendly and efficient.

Having used this restaurant twice while staying at the Douglas Hotel I must say the second time was better than the first. The first time I had the pork loin. This was a dry piece of meat, with dry black pudding, and the mash had a crust almost as if it been sitting on the plate for a while! A proper sauce rather than the apple sauce that comes with it would be nice. On the second visit I had the special Chargrilled chicken with a creamy sweet chilli sauce. This was a very good choice. Moist chicken, and the sauce was lovely! One minor complaint about the menu, the choice of starters could be slightly broader, one too many fish dishes are on it!

Was off to a bad start straight off.

I checked into the next door Douglas Hotel 9.30pm as my train had been delayed, so ended up sitting down at a table around 10pm. I was under the impression that the restaurant was open later than that, but the waitress informed me that it was actually just about to shut for the night.

I managed to convince her that I was just after a quick snack, so ordered the sharing nachos - but as a single portion.

Considering the kitchen was probably already closed the food turned up really quickly and was of top quality. I was impressed with how good it was and how large the portion was for a single!

Staff here a bit strange. The waitress I was dealing with was fantastic, really friendly and attentive... but another waitress would hover in the doorway, move things about and I noticed her giving me a very scowling look a couple of times. Very strange!

Visited on st Patrick's day with a table for 10. We opted for the Sunday carvery. It's was very well priced, the lamb casserole was delicious. The service was warm and welcoming, and they were very tolerant of the children. A good experience, will be returning
