Steak

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

Our guests are welcome to book tables where availability allows but we always keep a few tables reserved for walk ins and spontaneity! If you don’t see a table at the time you require, please consider popping in, having a drink at the bar and waiting for a table to become free. You do not require a vaccine passport to join us.

    Really fabulous service, excellent food, knowledgable staff. Oyster shucker in the kitchen could do with some more training though! We all had quite a bit of shell fragment in our oyster. But that it no way would put is off coming back. Really great evening.

    Went for a beef wellington which was a much better flavour than Gordon Ramsay bread street kitchen. Creamy mash was perfect and service was tip top.

    As a regular business commuter to Edinburgh I would rank Kyloe as the best venue in town for service and food quality. Our waitress , Brogan, was outstanding.

    Meat was excellent. Need to find a way of keeping the meat warm whilst eating when ordering a v expensive sharing plate. The sauce was poor, tasted like bisto with lumps of tasteless cheese in and also v small portion for £3.25. Mentioned to waitress and she said most people do expect it to be creamy blue cheese sauce - well why not explain when ordered that it's not!!!!! Overall, overpriced I'm afraid.

    Excellent steak house restaurant with a good selection of other dishes. The service is great and not stuffy or overly formal. The environment is very nice: quiet and pleasant without being overly stiff or frilly. Two of us had the "Sunday Roast" -- formally supposed to be over an hour and a half before we arrived, but they served it to us anyway. It was excellent quality but (other than the meat) a very large quantity. The only downsides are that it is rather expensive and I found the booth seating uncomfortable. I would recommend a regular table over a booth.

    We booked in the last time slot they admitted: 9:45 p.m., but they close kitchens at 10:00 p.m. You have to order fast and running, while the rest of the tables are cleared. Better book earlier. The food is great.

    Excellent way to celebrate husbands 60th birthday. Steaks were perfectly cooked, all 5 of us having different cuts of meat & degrees of rare/medium/rare-rare. The price fairly adds up as any sides (chips or sauce or veg etc) are additional charges — £4.50 for veg sides.... Nice touch at the end with a celebratory dessert for the birthday boy. Would highly recommend for a special treat.

    Our chateaubriand was the best we’ve had. The roast potatoes and veggies were perfect to our liking a little bit different as was our starters and dessert delicious. Restaurant setting and service made it all the more enjoyable. Loved the night view of the castle through the window. Situated at the end of Princes Street.

    Meal in Kyloe was a let-down. Have been there before and was very pleased so thought would be good to take family when they were visiting Edinburgh. However service was slow, and it took nearly half an hour before sitting down that they came to take our drinks order at same time as food - not good enough to be honest. We were thankful we'd had a drink downstairs beforehand. My sirloin steak was ordered as medium rare, but it was medium at best - not a drop of blood from it at all. Other party members had ribeyes (medium ) and there was blood coming out of them (as expected) . I did raise this with the waiter, but was too hungry to wait for another steak. I will concede that it was a good cut of beef, just not cooked the way I'd wanted. Overall disappointing from a specialist steak house - not a mistake you'd get at Miller & Carter or Hawksmoor.
