I was really impressed with the vegetarian selection. I had falafel and humous for starters then the sweet potato and bean burger with halloumi. They were both gorgeous. Great wine selection too.

Seven of us went for a meal and get together to celebrate a friend's birthday. We all enjoyed the food very much - it was truly delicious. And the service was very good.

The menu seemed quite nice. Unfortunately both meals were rather dull, and not wonderful. The waitress who initially seated us was helpful and nice to talk too. Unfortunately she left and we found the next waitress, and the person in charge, were very stand-offish, towards...More

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.
