Estaminet is a great wee Spanish tapas bar, just round the corner from Marischal College, in the city centre.
There's a big fireplace at one end, and seating both upstairs and downstairs. There's also a little room at the end of the upstairs section, with sofas and a tv. Just a really nice, relaxed and Spanish atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: They do a huge range of tapas (although not that many veggie ones as far as I could see....), plus ordinary meals which are pretty tasty. It's also a lovely place to come for a drink, as it's so cosy and relaxing. Expecially if you're waiting for the number 20 bus (the bus stop is across the road).

If you're having a party of any kind, try Little Italy, on Holburn Road.
This is the maddest restaurant I've ever been to! Although I didn't experience it the night I went there, it is well known for having waiters who dance on the tables!! It's always packed, so you usually have to book in advance, and it can be a bit too crowded, but for a party atmowphere, there's really no other place like it!
Favorite Dish: Anything and everything!
Hungary Eater: Hungary Eater
Hungary Eater is run by an authentic Hungarian family. It has a charming atmosphere and the family make you feel like you are a personal friend invited to dinner at their own home. Zoltan will quite happily talk about life, wines and food in Hungary whilst his wife Rylla is happy to share her penchant for biographies and autobiographies!!! Lunchtimes are half price. Booking is rather hit or miss.
Favorite Dish: Ask for vegetarian options. They serve a vast array of Hungarian wines and spirits.
The FoyerCrown StAberdeen: The FoyerCrown StAberdeen
This clean and airy restaurant is linked to the Aberdeen homeles project so some money goes to a worthwhile cause. The premises also double as a small art gallery.
Favorite Dish: The menu changes all the time and is really different but the goats cheese on apricot cous cous is a winner!

Yu's. Yu's is a gorgeous chinese/cantonese restaurant situated in the heart of Aberdeen city centre on Union Street.
Other's that we liked were Sawadee (Thai), Cove Bay Hotel (pub/traditional & the KURY on King Street.
Upmarket restaurant so no jeans and sweatshirts!!
Favorite Dish: We opted for the banquet meal and the aromatic duck was second to none. Compliments to the chef.
My favorite restaurant must be...
My favorite restaurant must be restaurant yu, at unionstreet. It is a chinees restaurant, not cheap, but the best food ever, great service, and the person who makes all the decorations for the food is a genius.
It is a fairly expensive restaurant compared to the other places, but if you have anything to celebrate or you just want an excellent meal, go to Yu's.
Udny Arms Hotel & Restaurant: A fine local restaurant near the coast
We were taken here by our Scottish friends and enjoyed a delicious meal together. The Bistro serves seafood and focuses on products raised in Scotland. It was an excellent evening!

Blackfriars: Good atmosphere & beers
Just a good example of a traditional Scottish pub. Nice atmosphere, good ales and lagers and if you're looking for good pub food....they do juicy burgers & chips and home made soup.
The Tearoom at Fyvie Castle: Don't miss the Tearoom at Fyvie Castle!
You may find a "spot of tea" turning into a full-fledged lunch:) Which is what happened to us. The meal was simple, but delicious and our waiter was most kind.
