Le bistro was warm and welcoming. The waiters were attentive and friendly. I had the chicken skewers and they were delicious. My friends were all pleased with their food choices. The deserts look fabulous but my apple flan was fairly ordinary. My only criticism is the bent chairs are not the most confortable. Overall a pleasant experience and I will definitely return. More

My wife had eaten here before approximately 12 years ago and had an amazing meal, now many years later we found ourselves In Edinburgh with our now grown up daughters and looking for somewhere to eat, this came up and we remembered the stunning views over the castle and decided to give it a whirl. On arrival we were greeted and seated, we elected for cocktails to start and then ordered from the two course menu, two had the haddock and I had the flatiron steak, our youngest went for the burger., the portions were very generous, the food was delicious, truly we have eaten in many fine establishments but this was in the top 1% . The desserts too were awesome, I had the simple vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds and coated in a chocolate sauce and it was simply divine. This service was attentive , the cocktails awesome and the good divine. A very underrated gem in Edinburgh, give it a try I doubt you will be disappointed More

Very friendly and attentive staff who go out of their way to give you the best experience. Delicious build-your-own pizza and large salads at a reasonable price. The cocktails, wine and beer choices are all slightly alternative than just your standard option. The soda fountain is excellent too, with lots of tasty choices than just regular cola. One of my favourite, low-key restaurants in Edinburgh. Skip Zizzi and Pizza Express around the corner, you want to try this! More

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 and 5pm for dinner serving menus created by our award-winning head chef John RutterMore
