While staying in Aberdeen, I visited Howie's to have a bowl of my favorite Scottish dish....cullen skink! Howie's in Aberdeen & Edinburgh serve the very best. They make it with the right texture and cream base.....not everyone can make it like Howie's 😊. Highly recommended!

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.
