Just a stone’s throw away from the high street shops in the city centre, The Blue Elephant takes the guesswork out of dining out in Aberdeen with friends and family. It would also make a fine place for tourists to unwind after visiting local attractions like The Tollbooth Museum, the maritime museum or His Majesty’s Theatre.
