“Best thing in Aberdeen!”

My beau and I visited Aberdeen from Los Angeles on business and are confessed food and drink snobs. Thanks to online reviews we took a chance on Bistro Verde and wound up dining there every night of our visit it was so phenomenal.

The owners are an absolute delight, the seafood as fresh as can be, and the chef is innovative and exciting (the scallop and black pudding special was positively sublime!)

It’s small and intimate, so make reservations any night of the week just to be safe. The hot seafood plate is amazing. The chocolate fondant for dessert is a must. Even the music was perfect. Wine and cognac were grand as well. Not to be missed.”

“The food does the talking”

“The place to go for wonderful seafood, our friends recommended this place and we are so glad we took them up on that recommendation. Understated, relaxed atmosphere, fun owners…

Lisa, your personality lights up the place, great music at just right level. Really it is the seafood that is the high light. The bloody Mary shots were well balanced still allowing to taste the oysters, the seafood platter n langoustines, no trip to Scotland should be with out a try of these. The halibut melted in my mouth.

Next time we are in Aberdeen we definitely be back. This place made me n my partners anniversary, thank you.”

“You must visit this gem of a bistro, the food is wonderful”

“My daughter and I went for lunch, the Cullen Skink soup which is a smoked haddock and potato soup , well loved by us all in Scotland was the best I have tasted, followed by a homemade cheese ravioli and a stunning pannacotta with berries for dessert.

The staff were friendly and the bill was around £40 for us both, we only had water to drink but ended the meal with coffee so great value. We will be back.”


“Great food, cooked very well.

A very friendly welcome, service which was well judged (not too pushy, not too slow). Between 4 of us we had 2 fish dishes, a steak and a pasta dish: all perfectly cooked, great balance of flavours. We will return…..”

“Best meal I’ve had in years”

“Incredible atmosphere, friendly service and we felt so relaxed over the long dinner…the seafood was delicious (cooked to perfection, the salmon dish, wow)…we didn’t want to leave!

Definitely my favourite place to eat & drink in Scotland. Highly recommended! We came back for lunch the next day…”
