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.

A nice choice for lunch in town. Often they have a nice special but my favourite is their home made beef burger with thick cut chips and a delicious relish. I've never been disappointed when I have eaten here so thank you.
