Aberdeen foodies are in for a treat next week as Aberdeen Restaurant Week returns.
The initiative, organised by Aberdeen Inspired, will take place from Monday to Sunday July 21.
Thirty-six restaurants across the city – and the culinary spectrum – have signed up and are offering special two-course lunches for £10 and three-course dinners for £20.
Now returning for the fourth time, Aberdeen Restaurant Week also features Malaysian afternoon teas, tasting dinners, gin sampling and more.

Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “Aberdeen Restaurant Week is a great way to explore the city in a different way and discover the huge variety of options that Aberdeen has when it comes to eating out.
“From more established favourites to fantastic new offerings, we have a wide range of restaurants taking part and plenty to tempt all tastes.
“We would urge the public to check out this map and get out and about this Aberdeen Restaurant Week to support our local businesses.”
The Mariner Hotel in Aberdeen is taking part for the third time and owner Mike Edwards is delighted with how the project has developed.
He said: “This will be our third time participating in Aberdeen Restaurant Week.
After hearing all the great feedback from the inaugural event last year, we were keen to be part of this foodie festival.
“It gives all the participating restaurants a chance to showcase their offerings to a whole new audience and restaurateurs are always keen to try to make new regulars from first-time diners.
“There’s a huge range of different cuisines on offer this time around which is excellent and shows how diverse the menus have become.
“As our seafood restaurant Atlantis looks to celebrate its 40th anniversary, we are keen to introduce ourselves to a whole new generation of Aberdeen gourmets with the evening menu we are running next week.
“I see this festival continuing to grow year on year and eventually not just being something for Aberdonians to enjoy, but also as a great pull for food tourists to come and participate in as Aberdeen continues to improve its offering as a travel destination.”
The McGinty’s Group is also an avid supporter with three of its venues – The Stag, McGinty’s Meal An’ Ale and Ferryhill House Hotel – involved.
Jillian Miller, sales and marketing director, added: “It is fantastic to see Aberdeen Restaurant Week making a return following its previous successful campaigns.
“As a local business, it provides us with a great opportunity to showcase our offering to those who may not have dined with us before while also encouraging people to get out and explore the city centre and the amazing businesses in the area.”
Aberdeen Restaurant Week aims to increase footfall to local establishments across the Business Improvement District area and further afield.
