Having been a regular at Howies Waterloo Place it was lovely to visit Howies Aberdeen. Same formula menu that works well. Ham hock terrine, smoked mackerel pate and fish cakes were good. Hake a little over done. Banoffee pie also good. Service was attentive. Definitely...More

Set menu for a reasonably large group was fine, wished I had ordered the fish cakes as the roast chicken was a bit dry. Bottles of soft drink were only 200ml, which is a rip-off! Took a long time (30+ minutes) to take food orders,...More

We visited Howie's whilst staying in Aberdeen. Nice, well cooked simple food, presented tastefully with no frills. Just what we wanted on a cold snowy night.

Visited Howies for the first time last Wednesday, before attending a performance at HM Theatre. We arrived slightly early, but were made very welcome. The food and service were both excellent, and I will certainly be going back next time I'm in Aberdeen!

I'm sorry. I do not know the answer to that as I have not dined there with children. They do not advertise a Children's Menu.

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.
