Please be aware if you order the large hot chocolate which retails at an overpriced £3.95. The waiter taking the order asks if you want toppings. It would be reasonable to expect that a few mini marshmallows and some chocolate flaked on the top for decoration would be complimentary. But no when your bill is presented there is a supplementary... More

A let down by the service and slightly put off by the prices but if I am in the area and need somewhere to escape the rain, I will be there just for the... More

Molly's is part of the Aberdeen Douglass hotel. We had dinner here the first night we arrived as we did not get in until late. The staff were friendly and the service quick and efficient. There was not much of an atmosphere and most people eating seemed to be in there just to get something to eat. The food was... More

Unfortunately despite Molly's being recommended by a friend, we were not impressed by the service. The staff seemed disinterested. The menu was overpriced.

Visited this weekend with family. Very disappointed by the portion sizes and the prices charged. Nearly £7 for toast and scrambled eggs... only one slice of toast and a pity full amount of eggs. My wife ordered a portion of toast - again, only one slice of toast. When I requested another slice, it came out black. Basically, we were... More

I have been to Molly's many times over the years, from Sunday breakfast to tea & cakes or lunch with friends to an intimate evening meal and it never disappoints. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Stonehaven to give it a try.

Arrived for our meal and shown to our table, however we should have looked around, seen the restaurant was almost empty and slipped quitely away! This being payday it probably should have been busy. Meal arrived and yet another example of a restaurant trying to be what it clearly isn't! Overly elaborate effort to impress (a fish is a fish... More

Visited recently with a friend for breakfast, I had the wee breakfast and my friend had salmon, scrambled eggs and gluten free toast as she is celiac. Was impressed, great service from waitress Angela too. Will be back.
