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

Under the current restrictions we were met at the door and our temperatures were taken, and were then met at the top of the stairs and were immediately taken to our table (hand sanitizer on the table). We couldnt get our first choice of starters as there was none left, totally understandable in the current climate, we picked alternative starters that were lovely. Main courses and sides were excellent, serving staff excellent. We felt very safe and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We found Kyloe excellent.The service was very good as was the presentation of the food.A perfect roast dinner!
A bottle of red would have been icing on the cake however not allowed in the current climate!

Stunning Sunday lunch. Almost flawless! The only possible criticism was that the veg portion was a little small. But that’s not picking! Chateaubriand was cooked to perfection, sides were gorgeous, the gravy was out of this world. The dessert was treacle pie. I don’t like treacle yet found myself gobbling it up! Awesome roast! We’ll be back....

We really enjoyed the night, our server was very friendly. Totally stuffed ourselves. Obviously the sharing steaks can be quite expensive and we were a bit disappointed that the Porterhouse wasn’t included on their sharing deal but we still got it and enjoyed it thoroughly. Really nice place to go eat

We had a lovely early dinner here on Wednesday. Our waiter was very knowledgable and made great suggestions on red wine and desserts. It was quite quiet when we arrived at 4pm but we expected that. It was getting busier as we left. The steaks were cooked to perfection and I particularly enjoyed the garlic and chilli green beans and creamed cabbage sides. We will definitely return.

Got the sirloin on the bone to share – would absolutely recommend it! It was so tasty that I didn't feel like I needed the bone marrow gravy. The gravy was good but didn't blow my mind. Maybe something creamy would have gone better. The beef dripping chips were fabulous and we loved the mushrooms.

We got the beef shin mac n cheese and while they were generous with the beef shin and it was tender and delicious, the mac n cheese was a bit dry and lacking cheese so I would probably skip that next time for more chips.

Our waiter was knowledgable re wine pairing with beef and when presented with the fact that the Malbec we had previously selected was judged a little thin with the carpaccio ,he returned with 4 bottles and detailed the pros/cons. We were unsure if the names given to the various cuts of beef and once again provided an accessible description to aid our choice.
Attentive service that made sure the bottle of champagne we inserted between courses was expertly poured.
Not as homely as when we visited last February due to removal of table items/menus and the screens don’t help but better open!
