The countdown is now officially on for Aberdeen Restaurant Week 2019! The only thing standing in your way of tasty goodness is the small matter of a couple of days and making some big decisions on what/where you are going to eat for lunch and dinner from the 4 - 10 February.
How can you get some help making these big decisions you ask? Well, we want to introduce you to our #ARW2019 Brand Ambassadors, who will be giving you the low down and bringing you exclusive reviews of your favourite city centre restaurants.
Detox January is finally over and we think February should be all about treating yourself and experiencing something new right on your doorstep.
So let's meet the team...

Meet Anastasia, the founder of Natbee’s, a blog that started as a fun project back in 2007 to keep in touch with family and friends all over the world. Anastasia left her nest in Greece and moved to England almost a decade ago to study for my Msc degrees, and then travelled around Europe until she decided to settled down in Scotland to study for her PhD. Natbee’s has always been a passion and has evolved as her life was evolving, travelling around places, moving around countries and meeting new people. Daily, Anastasia shares about her life in Scotland, personal style and trips, and so far, and hopes people enjoy following her along this life adventure!
