We ate at Howies during a short stay. The locally sourced food was fantastic, from the smoked pigeon breast to the cauliflower risotto to the cheese board. The service was great and we were made very welcome. Highly recommended.

Had a lovely meal for my 40th birthday at Howies. I had a fillet steak which was stunning. My daughter had fish and chips. The only thing that id say was that the batter on the fish should have been crispy. Instead, she found it a bit soggy. The service was second to none. Will definitely visit again ❤

Had a good lunch here. Service was great and the menu utilised the fresh fish available from around Scotland. Seating wasn't cramped either which we have found is common in city restaurants. Had a wide gin selection too.

We went to Howies with an Itison voucher as our past experiences there have been good. Again the service and environment were of a high standard. However, what I would like to take issue with is the separate Itison menus we were provided with. We would have preferred the normal menu but with supplements added as appropriate. Nevertheless,The food was still of good quality. We will go back but not on an Itison voucher.

My wife and I were staying in Aberdeen for two nights. On night one we toured the town and found nothing that appealed until we found Howies. The staff and food were so good that we returned again on night two when everything was as good as the previous evening. A splendid restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. A pity that the menu states that a Service Charge is included when, in fact, it isn't. It would be a shame if the staff are missing out on tips because of this.
