Reviewed 7 September 2017 via mobile

I was taken here for lunch during my short visit to Aberdeen. It was beautiful. From the moment you walk through the door it is open, friendly and welcoming. The food is second to none. Staff were lovely. Highly recommend to anybody visiting the area. It's a gem of a place.

Stayed in a big, modern clean family room with large windows and fantastic panoramic views over golf course , sea and Slains castle. Room had everything you needed with sofa and table at window where you could enjoy the view.
Ate in restaurant which was mobbed on the Saturday but luckily had booked a table. Not only was service friendly but amazingly swift . Was a lovely atmosphere and obviously very popular with locals . That's because the food was fab.2 courses for 3 of us from steak to pasta with 4 alcoholic drinks and 2 cokes was around 60. Large portions too.
Great plentiful breakfast. Lovely people. The hotel is just a 12 min walk from beach and castle walk so a great location. No noise heard in our room despite busy public bar. Went with husband and son and already booked to take my mum in 2 weeks
As enjoyed it so much.

Booked a table at the St Olaf, we had a few drinks in the bar before our table time, only to be advised that the kitchen was very busy and running behind.. we ordered and waited and waited...
Nearly an hour later we were told the kitchen had now caught up and our table was ready!!!
Food was ok, all fried and mostly bought in.
Not worth the wait really.
Would not return on a weekend,the kitchen staff cannot cope with more than3-4 tables at a time!!!

We've visited the St Olaf regularly for years and the food has always been very good.

Staying fairly local it is our 'go-to' choice for an evening meal out but I would recommend booking. The dining rooms are fairly small and fill up quickly so phone in advance.

I always have the Fish and Chips which is straight from the market in Peterhead.

Another favourite of ours is the Beef Steak Pie which is a very generous portion.

Puddings are also good and there are always specials on offer.

I'm sure some of the decor hasn't changes in the last 15 years we've been visiting but it makes a homely setting with lots of local pictures, photographs and items from Cruden Bay's history.

We will certainly visit again :-)
