Steak

Welcome to Edinburgh’s first gourmet steak restaurant. The name Kyloe, an old Scots word for Highland beef cattle, was chosen for the restaurant as it represents the strength and versatility of Scottish beef produce. We use cuts from pedigree Aberdeen Angus – supplied by some of Scotland’s top farms and butchers – to bring our customers the best possible steak experience.

Our first floor restaurant can be found in The Rutland Hotel at Edinburgh’s West End and boasts enviable views of Edinburgh Castle. We are open from 12pm for lunch at weekends and 5pm for dinner serving menus created by our award-winning head chef John Rutter

    Had a lovely meal at Kyloe, for my husband’s birthday. We both ordered fillet steak, we both thought our medium steaks could have been a little pinker. However, still had a lovely meal. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

    We paid our bill and left the restaurant then 2 mins later the waitress followed us to tell us that we haven’t paid the bill. We told her that we have and yet she didn’t believe us and went to check. Its very shameful to accuse someone of not paying a restaurant bill and made us very upset. The food was amazing but the waitress was very disrespectful.

    We’ve eaten here many times, but not for about 2 years. It’s still worthwhile. It’s a relaxed eating environment. We went for a 35 day aged sharer and a Hardiesmill 180g flatiron. All 3 of us have healthy appetites, but there were a few beef dripping chips left at the end. Son went for the pistachio pavlova for afters, and he’s still talking about it today.

    Great dining experience for our 39th wedding anniversary, I had scallops to start ,were delicious then the 400g 38 day aged rib eye , best steak I’ve tasted in a very long while, hubbie had the fillet steak and beef dripping chips said they were amazing, friendly, efficient service . Nice touch with Happy Anniversary chocolate treat at the end. The only very small issue was with the table we were at , we felt the chairs were slightly too low which left you reaching up to the table slightly when you were eating, didn’t put us off though will definitely be back.

    First visit to this restaurant, we had the ‘Steak me out’ offer, incredible price for the quality of food we had. I highly recommend the grilled wagyu 'nduja, if you have the chance to try this. Staff were very helpful, answered all my questions and helped with choosing the correct products for us. Will definitely be visiting again!

    Food was great sharing meal was enough for two people, we did have starters which were very substancial, couldn't manage a desert. Location is great, restraunt good atmosphere. My only issue was I found staff a little over attentive, this is only my personal opinion of course and wouldn't want it to deter anyone from going to this restraunt as the food is good.

    Terrific meal as expected at kyloe. The 475g Chateaubriand steak with a Bearnaise sauce & Peppercorn sauce with a side of beef dripping chips, and heritage roast potatoes was all cooked perfectly. Atmosphere was just right, with noise levels being perfect for conversation and not feeling disrupt other tables. Service team looked after our needs and going over the expected and got a dessert that wasn’t on the main menu. Will be back for another treat soon.

    We booked at the restaurant for a birthday meal and the kyloe excelled our expectations at every level. We requested a special table for the occasion and were given a perfect booth area with perfect views of the city and restaurant surroundings alike. Staff were plentiful, professional and friendly, and the dishes we chose were amazing. A great big thank you to all at the Kyloe for making this birthday a special one and definitely one to remember.

    Outstanding food and service. Great atmosphere and would like to give a special mention to our waitress (didn't get her name but she was brunette with a sort of foreign accent and told us she was leaving soon to go to university to study - I think psychology if that helps). Was up there with the best service we've had and the restaurant will be losing a great member of staff in her. Restaurant also brought out a nice happy anniversary gesture on a wee wooden tray with little cheesecakes and mini strawberry meringue nests free of charge which was beautiful at the end and free bread to start. Will definitely be back.

    Had a very enjoyable, if somewhat expensive, dinner. Lobster Thermidor starter was very tasty but this was beaten by the haggis and beef shin with Yorkshire pud! We shared the Cote de boeuf which was just a little disappointing with the special sirloin having more flavour. Pretty good although wines on the pricey side

    Although we had booked in advance and paid our deposit we waited over an hour for our food to come, even the bread and butter. The restaurant wasn’t absolutely packed but it was busy and it felt really loud we couldn’t hear each other talking. Also had to move tables as they sat us at one without much room for our two children. Luckily the food was delicious and almost worth the wait.
