My husband and I have dined here many times and have received top service and food every time. The bruschetta entree is so yummy and the steak is the best in town!!

We stumbled across Aberdeen by happy coincidence, the place we thought we were going was closed and we spotted the sign for Aberdeen. Well, a happy accident it turned out to be. Service was impeccable and friendly, food was perfectly cooked, tasty and reasonably priced. Next I'm in Palmy I shall definitely return, as should you.

Food here was very good, service however was quite slow. We were quite a large party but this was known well in advance and sadly two guests had to hold before their mains arrived due to child care issues. As said the food was very good and with a smaller group the score may have been higher.

My teenage son and I both enjoyed rich flavours and textures of the surf and turf, garden salad, onion rings, trio of ice cream, and creme brûlée. We also tried the non-alcoholic mojito and passion fruit drinks. Would definitely recommend and eat here again when we're back in town. Fantastic!

This restaurant is a bit more upmarket. The food is worthy of its price though. The kids menu is also of good quality with extra veggies on the side upon request. The Pork belly en the Eye fillet were well prepared and both dishes were a feast to eat. Combined with NZ fine wines, a lovely desert and good service... More

Birthday dinner last night, excellent meal and service, steaks were amazing, we did leave without having dessert however as nothing really appealed to us but that did not spoil the night.
