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

If you are looking for a nice steak restaurant, you are in the right place. I put it among the best steak restaurants, I also recommend you to try the tomato soup. The attention of the staff also got full points from us.

I was so disappointed by this meal. I booked it with high hopes after hearing really good things for ages about it. The waiter recommended the cote de beof and it was extremely chewy (we had it med rare) and sinuey, we felt he recommended this over the weekly changing steak because it was much more expensive as apposed to suiting our needs more. the green beans we ordered were also really undercooked and cold in the middle - when I mentioned this they microwaved them for us and they were a little better. The wine was lovely, as were the chips and sauces. Overall I would not return, we spent close to £100 and I feel I have cooked tastier and more tender steaks myself for a fraction of the price.

First proper meal out since lockdown. Will take a bit of time to get used to all the restrictions of eating in public but Kyloe seems to have it pretty well organised. Great steaks.

Food was incredible, tasty and very filling.
£93 for a roast dinner, shared desert and a glass of wine each is slightly overpriced.

Impeccable service from Ben. The food was fabulous as always: Chateuabriand, sides, cheeseboard and Malbec all to die for.
Our first outing since lockdown and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening.
The staff have gone out of their way to create a very safe environment and ensure everyone is comfortable and relaxed without losing any of the ambience.
Just perfect - we have already rebooked for the end of the month.

Food was amazing, filet steak was easily 2 inches deep, and cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back.

Covid measures in place so it meant for a different dining experience. Waiters friendly and helpful. Score not a 5 because of the disappointment that the menu on Open Table was not menu received on evening. It was a restricted menu that we got.

A very lovely evening dining at Kyloe in this new environment. Lovely welcome and very attentive service. The only thing “lacking” was an atmosphere, but this didn’t detract from a gorgeous meal and a lovely experience overall.

Great food and service, was a little bit less comfortable and atmospheric due to the Covid restrictions and separating screens. All understandable but nevertheless it has an impact on the setting. Won’t stop us coming back though :-)

We had a very warm welcoming from one of the staff members in the front door. He explained very thoroughly the process and the new rules due to COVID-19 and he was really smiling, which is an extra. When we went to the first floor, where the Kyloe restaurant is, one of the waitresses welcomed us with a big smile and she took us to the table which was a very comfortable with great views of the Sandwick Place. The restaurant was very clean and the toilets also. I noticed that, it was cleaned on a regular basis after visits from customers. The waitress was very polite, patient and told us how much we will wait for the food in order to be served according to our taste. The food was very tasty, very well presented and of very high quality ingredients. The cocktails that I took with my lovely fiancé, were very tasty and of high quality. Also the presentation was really good. The value for money was also very good and something also important, on a regular basis the staff made sure we were happy with the food or if we wanted something extra. 100% recommended place to go and for any purpose. Of course, keep in mind that Kyloe is not cheap, but is not very expensive and definitely worth the money and is a good value for money. I have been so many times in this restaurant and what I have to say is that, they are professional, they look after the customers, the quality of food is top, the quality of drinks is top, it is very tidy place and the music that is on the background matches perfectly for the time of the day. Well done and keep the good job

An excellent choice if you are feeling at all nervous about eating out for the first time in months. Staff managed to pull off the difficult feat of making it feel extremely safe and reassuring while also making it feel as normal as possible. They were warm, welcoming, very clear and very friendly. Food excellent as always.
