Aberdeen - anything good?

I've found the odd post here, but nothing recent. Have to be in Aberdeen for a few days end of this month - what is there worth eating at? Neither price or type of food are an issue, we just want good food.

And also, surrounding area - even fairly far out: planning to go to Loch Ness area one day, a day in Dufftown (Balvenie distillery tour and, hopefully, some good food), Moray Firth coast (i.e. Banff)...

Is it all really a wasteland or might I be surprised?

Only plan so far is that, as we get in late afternoon on a Sunday, we have reservations to meet friends (also from away, like us there for a conference) at our hotel, the Malmaison Aberdeen...which has a spring special of 2 courses for 2 people + a bottle of wine for only 29 pounds...hopefully it isn't as horrific as I fear it might be.
