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 Rutter

Private Dining

Whether you are celebrating a personal occasion or looking for a discreet venue for a corporate event, the Private Dining room @Kyloe offers up comfort and opulence in abundance, paired with top quality cuisine to guarantee great times and lasting impressions!

First time at this steak restaurant and it did not disappoint. The welcome was friendly and a perfect table was provided for hosting customers. The steak, several types, was just sublime, cooked to perfection and so tender. Would suggest making the side dishes and sauce boats slightly larger, didn’t feel quite enough although we’re big eaters. The bill was a very pleasant surprise too, coming in way under expectations. Can’t recommend highly enough and will back again soon.

Top quality steak. The other food was nice as well but the steak was by far the highlight (which it should be a steak house!)
Service was excellent and regular check ups were handy as we ordered a few more sides once our original order came up, which were delivered in good time.

Everything was amazing. The only negative part of the experience was that it was too hot inside the restaurant and the standstill fans were not sufficient, given that it is summer I can forgive this though.

Meat eaters heaven, with particularly good beef, though it has to be said other dishes are very good too, and there’s value wine. We thought the service was particularly helpful and friendly.

Our food was great. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the fois gras was a very generous portion. The bernaise sauce was delicious.

My steak was not up to the usual outstanding standard, when I mentioned this staff were excellent and I did not have to pay for main course or coffee. My friend’s meal was of the usual outstanding standard. These things happen with steaks but the service and effort made by staff mean I will go back.

We were in Edinburgh for a few days last week. When we asked for a recommendation to esat a good steak, Kyloe was the name we heard, twice.

The suggestions for the menu were really good, the meat was really really good, and the service was amazing.

Very nice food but overpriced and lacking in green side veg. Friendly service but the music was terrible, too loud and kids were crying and moaning - not a very relaxing meal.

On arrival the staff member at the bottom of the stairs was a bit to brusque in asking if we had a table booked. There is a nicer way to greet people and assuming that we do have a reservation rather than don't would be a good place to start.

Aside from this we had another wonderful experience in Kyloe. The staff are knowledgeable and genuine and the food is quite simply fantastic. We'll definitely be back.

If you're looking for something a bit more special, then try this.. food was fantastic and the service was impeccable.
Don't get me wrong, it's not the cheapest restaurant in the city but you won't regret it.

Went to Kyloe for my birthday last year and it was amazing! My wife wanted to go for hers this year so we did. It was a little disappointing. The service was fantastic but the filet steak not so much. It didn’t taste like a £31 steak and was as if it had been done in a slow cooker. Good but not as good as the first time. Would still recommend to anyone who wants a fine steak restaurant I think we were just unlucky.

Very welcoming and attentive staff. Menu was explained clearly and nothing was too much trouble.
Steaks were perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious.
Would be better value if potatoes/ chips were included with steak rather than as one of the extra sides. Also felt wine was massively overpriced. However, for special occasions it is a fabulous restaurant offering top quality food and service.

We were 4 friends meeting for lunch. We booked table on-line which was easy to use and turned up for 1 pm. The restaurant was quite quiet at that time but this had no negative impact for us. All the staff that served us were charming and made our whole experience most enjoyable. We had 2 courses from the set menu and all plates were cleared. Delicious.

So disappointed table booked for 20.45 table not ready for 10 minutes starters ordered arrived 21 15 fine at 22.25 still no main courses. Approached the staff and was told they had a large corporate do on so food was late. A manager came over to explain why our food was late and offered glass of champagne and a corporate card but as it was so late and at 22.30 indications were 5 more minutes so we decided not to wait and left
I would say this experience was one of the worst encountered compared to the previous evening at Dine near the usher hall. Will never go there again

We ordered two steaks one was good the other was shockingly sub standard . It was cooked medium rare and came to the table hard and flavourless which was an incredible shame as this wasn’t the first time we had been there . I feel that the quality of the steaks have deteriorated. Rather disappointing as this is a restaurant that specialise in high quality Steak / Beef . Would we go again ? Not sure !

I’m never disappointed when I dine at Kyloe, their hosting skills are always superb and the food is so good it’s a talking point even when I get home. With a great menu for all tastes and the waiting staff having extensive knowledge of menu ingredients it is a restaurant we recommend to family and friends.
I was politely asked if I had any food allergies or intolerances when seated. I do have a gluten intolerance and when the complimentary bread came before our meal arrived, I was given an alternative homemade gf individual mini bread. No fuss and discreetly handled unlike some dining experiences where I feel my intolerance is highlighted. My husband and I had the Chateaubriand to share and it was cooked perfectly and so tender. The gf bread with an aubergine and tomato accompaniment was just lush.
