Located just a few steps from the Waldorf Hotel in Prices St..great for an alternative for guests of the hotel.
Food was delicious.
Steak was cooked to perfection.
The sides were amazing too. ..great selection of sauces and gravy... Beef shin Mac & cheese, beef dripping chips, etc.
Good choice of wines.
The restaurant decor is very welcoming, warm ambience.
Loved the novelty barrel lights and wine/ beer bottles lights just added a quirky edge.
The service was very friendly and attentive.
As a side note there is a lift/elevator
If your visiting Edinburgh..it’s a must visit

Have been to Kyloe many times before and though the service is still fantastic, we felt the food wasn’t to the high standards we have experienced in the past. Seriously let down by Kyloe on this experience and with many more great steak restaurants to try in Edinburgh, standards shouldn’t be dropping.

Another great meal here at Kyloe. We shared a Chateaubriand and enjoyed a fine bottle of Argentinian Malbec, which complimented the beef perfectly! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great steak with brilliant service!

Totally underwhelmed by the evening. First visit and won't hurry back when better quality is available for less money elsewhere.

Our table wasn't ready on time, we couldn't understand the waitress due to her accent and the background noise of a group of guests having photos taken and milling about, it looked more like a networking event than dinner.

Starters;
Scampi and Beef shin
Scampi was too small - beef shin was too big

Mains;
Beef wellington - not pleasant at all, left uneaten
fillet steak, served cold, the sides were fine

We provided feedback on the quality and the manageress / supervisor offered us complimentary desserts, neither of us wanted one but we went for ice cream. The orange one tasted of nothing really, the mint one tasted of nettles.
The Malbec was very nice but we went for a nice dinner not the wine.

It wasn't worth the money we spent so read the reviews before you book a table here.

I think Kyloe has gone downhill over the past couple of years. I’m a fairly regular customer (probably eaten here in excess of 10 times) and it surprises me that they don’t keep up with the value and quality of competitors in Edinburgh. Quite disappointed this time, both on the cooking of the steak front and the value. Shame really. My steak was on the medium side of rare but I just couldn’t be bothered to send it back and wait for another one to come out whilst my friends ate their food, only to the the last one at the end... The chips were a bit undercooked too - dripping chips, not very appetising when not crispy. Overall a bit underwhelming and 70-80 a head makes it not too worthwhile. Wine was decent, I’ll give them that. When asked we said it was fine out of courtesy, but I doubt I’ll be back. Other options are more attractive for the money

Utter dreadful. Having told the waiter we had someone with a rocket allergy the meat came with rocket!!! The meet was fatty and cooked at best medium when we asked for it to be cooked “very well done”. ALL the sides dishes were cold. Will not be back, totally unacceptable food quality & service for a restaurant of this reputation.

One of the best steaks I've ever had, with truly faultless service.

Atmosphere wasnt the absolute best earlier in our meal due to a rowdy group, but this is of no fault to the resteraunt and actually makes me recommend them more - the staff tried really hard to keep us and other tables closer to them happy, which makes me recommend them not only on food, but also on service that makes even unavoidably bad clients more bearable.

This was our 3rd visit to Kyloe. Our previous experiences were positive but not on this occasion. Our table was not ready when we arrived and we were asked to go back downstairs and buy ourselves a drink. We did not have to wait too long before being advised that our table was ready. Our table was adjacent to the main corridor used by the waiting staff serving tables. It was in a dark part of the restaurant so it was impossible to see the menu and your food. The restaurant was very noisy and we were irritated (not the restaurant's fault) by children running around the restaurant unaccompanied and unsupervised. The service was decent but the food was fairly ordinary. Starters were acceptable but the steaks were very disappointing and bland in terms of both appearance and taste. The presentation was poor (some sorry looking salad by the side of the plate). My wife ordered the 'handcut chips' but they looked like something you'd get in McDonalds! She did mention it to a waitress who said simply that she'd pass her comments back to the kitchen. As I've said above, we've been to Kyloe twice before but we'll not be in a hurry to go back any time soon; very disappointed.

I have booked this restaurant many times for my bosses and always had it on my bucket list. Our meal was for my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed - we even had a few drinks in the Huxley beforehand and the service in there was also excellent. Our food and the staff were first class and we will certainly be back.

This place was wonderful! The steaks were so flavorful and the entire meal was delicious. The staff was warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. We visited based on the recommendation of a family member and it exceeded all our expectations. They also provided a very nice treat for my son’s birthday without making it a spectacle.

Overall the food was tasty and the service was great. However we ordered the steak of the day and then we were told that the one our waitress had told us about wasn’t the right one. They explained what it was and made it seem like it was a very similar steak. However I wouldn’t have said it was and looking back would have preferred to order something different. Also we ordered 2 beef dripping chips and only one arrived, however it was all we really needed.

Our roast arrived a bit cold. We made staff aware and they offered us fresh but since we had waited a while already and had our little boy with us we just ate it anyway. They did knock the drinks (1wine,1 juice) off the bill as an apology. It was delicious though
