Visited Howies for the second time for an early evening meal and it did not disappoint. Lovely haggis for starter then hearty chicken all for only £15 before 6.30. Nice selection of local gin as well which was a bonus.

Had a friend visiting from Australia and couldn't decide where we would go for a 'not to heavy' lunch with a good choice. There are many restaurants in Aberdeen but not all can be relied on to be consistently good unlike Howies. Nice atmosphere, well...More

About 10 mins at an average speed as it's not far away. Up Holburn Street onto Union Street then left up Chapel Street and it's halfway up on the right hand side.

Refurbished January 2015. Great fresh seasonal food prepared to order. 2 Large dining areas and 2 Private Dining rooms. Set prices & a la carte. Central Aberdeen. Informal, great value, well established. Excellent wine list. Whether a small intimate dinner for two, business lunch for 12 or a wedding party Howies is the perfect venue.
