Lovely food in a lovely setting, service very good. Would recommend,
It was our first eating experience at The Braided Fig and we weren’t disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive and the menu really inspiring. In fact it was tricky to only choose one starter, main and dessert each! We will definitely be back!
First time at this restaurant. Food was delicious and good value for money. Did overhear another table comment on how small the lemon sole was and it was £20! Service was quite slow, but we were enjoying each others company so we didn’t mind too much. Would have been nice to have the lights dimmed and some music playing. It was very bright and full of chatter. 10% service charge is added to the bill which didn’t bother me but had the service been slower I might not have been happy.
We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Braided Fig and would definitely recommend going. There is a wide range of food and drink which would suit most people’s tastes and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
My wife and I were looking forward to dining at the Braided Fig as we hadn't been for a number of years. We had noticed that they were part of the Aberdeen Restaurant Week (ARW) 3 course for £20 deal so decided to book a table online for my wife's birthday. When we arrived, we were greeted and taken to our table. When we were given the normal restaurant menu, I advised that we had booked for ARW. The waitress subsequently advised that this was only available for pre-bookings only. When I advised that we had pre-booked (I started my online booking by clicking on the Braided Fig restaurant link contained on the ARW website), I was advised that you have to put a note on your booking advising that is for the ARW deal. When I pointed out to the waitress that she essentially wasn't going to offer us the ARW menu for something as little as not clarifying this within the booking request, she confirmed this to be correct and advised that they were limited to the number of guests this deal could be offered to. For clarity, the restaurant was only around half full at this time. Following a minute or two of deliberation, we made the decision to finish our drinks and head somewhere else for dinner given what we felt was a very petty position taken by the restaurant. When we confirmed this to the restaurant and asked for our drinks bill, this was not challenged or queried whatsoever and the bill swiftly arrived. I find it difficult to understand why a small, privately owned, local restaurant would let paying customers depart for something as small and simple as a choice of menu. I'm happy to admit that going back through the booking process, it did ask you to confirm that the booking was for ARW and this is an error on my part. I still don't think however that this merits the response we received from the restaurant. Its almost like they are grudgingly taking part in ARW given the lengths they are going to. Disappointed and to top it off, reluctantly had to pay £8 for a glass of warm Prossecco. On the positive note, we had a pleasant evening at Vovem around the corner where the service was excellent.
excellent service, quality and quantity of food. standard service charge of 10% added for a table of 4 with toddler excessive (we would have given that amount+ anyway, just principal for me) but overall we enjoyed our visit and will visit again. slight mark down for atmosphere as it was so quiet but not their fault and picked up as we were leaving.
The Braided Fig was a fantastic restaurant with a good atmosphere. For me, the only thing I think was lacking was real napkins rather than paper serviettes.
