I hadn't been here for a meal for a long time so was quite keen when it was suggested for a dinner. The menu is a lot more restrictive that I remember, esp if you would rather not have red meat and cannot eat shellfish....More

The Courtyard is "Aberdeen's unique west end dining experience" with exactly the same food offerings which have made La Stella so successful. With the well researched Seasonal Creations menu & the extensive daily fish specials we offer something VERY special to the west end of town and having James Ferrier as Restaurant Manager making sure that everyone is looked after to the highest standards!!!The Courtyard Restaurant offers something a little bit different to the foodies of Aberdeen, our focus is and always will be on quality and this shines through in everything that we do. The quality of the produce our chefs use, which is all locally sourced and is reflected in the seasonality of all of our menus. Our senior Chefs have been trained in some of the best restaurants in Aberdeen & Scotland & our younger chefs have found their feet here in a very dynamic kitchen environment which praises new ideas and techniques.One thing is for absolute sure….. Something special has come to Aberdeen.We do hope you can visit usThe Beetroot Team
