We adore Master Chef the Professionals star Brian McLeish's eatery and we think you will too.

Established in 2004, its innovative menu is one of the best around, with 2-4 courses on offer and ingredients like sea bass, salmon, duck and beef showcasing what the north east region is capable of producing.

It's the type of restaurant that'd be at home in the centre of London as it is in Aberdeen's Merchant quarter.

Compact, modern and with dishes and a drinks list that will definitely impress, your other half is sure to be wowed.

De France avec amour….In terms of romantic restaurants, few know the language of love (and good food) better than the French, so that's why we've picked this wonderful little French family run restaurant.

Originally hailing from Provence, owner Dominique Mancellon has been enthusing Aberdeen with his passion for cooking dishes such as Daube De Chevreuil (Daube of venison), Confit De Canard (Duck confit) and the always excellent Peche Du Jour (fish of the day).

Squirreled away off Union Street in Adelphi Lane, Adelphi Kitchen proclaims itself as "Aberdeen’s only soul food restaurant" and is the perfect place to grab some mouth wateringly good comfort food.

Share one of the house Mac and Cheeses (the true food of love) before choosing from a range of dishes made using locally-sourced seasonal ingredients from Southern fried fish to smoky BBQ meats.

Café 52

Located on The Green in the heart of Aberdeen and now in its twentieth year, Café 52 is one of the stalwarts of the city's burgeoning restaurant scene.

Small but cosy and filled with character, it's a wonderful place to coorie up with your other half as you enjoy dishes like the Hickory smoked wild venison and boar burger, the Parsnip fries with honey and sea salt and a delightful dessert from Mrs B's homemade sweets menu.
