Located in the medieval streets of Aberdeen’s merchant quarter, Moonfish Cafe hit the city in 2004 and has been bringing its own quirky style of medieval dining to the city ever since. Their offering is quality casual dining that is never pretentious but always beautifully executed.
It’s enviable location has impressive views of the 12th century kirk of St Nicolas and the quaint cobbled streets running outside the restaurant adds to the charm and character of this casual dining spot in Aberdeen.
The modern British menu is juxtaposed with the historic setting, giving a fresh perspective on a traditional British menu. The restaurant prides itself on an ever-evolving menu that is reflective of seasonal produce and sourced locally wherever possible, meaning that each visit you can have a fresh choice of dishes.
An ever-changing set lunch menu is available Tuesday-Thursday and current highlights include starters of rabbit & chorizo en croute, prawn toast and buttered shrimp, while current larger plates include koreean fried chicken and fried artichoke, desserts remain traditionally British with cheese boards and cherry bakewell tart teamed with a chocolate sorbet and cherry truffle.
Dinner set menus are available with a choice of two, three or four courses. Some of our favourites include sirloin of beef with fermented enoki and curried monkfish with aubergine, celery and green olive.
The local and seasonal menu is then complemented with an impressive and carefully curated drinks list - make sure you take time to explore the extensive gin selection and have your choice of a gin martini or a traditional G&T. The list includes all the well known brands you know and love, along with an eclectic and thoughtful mix of Scottish gins ready to be explored.
