We had a lovely meal at Kyloes, service was lovely and we were located by a window with a nice view.
My daughter loves the place and she recommended we give it a try. We were not disappointed and for sure we'll be back.
Gourmet steak restaurant in the city centre
Kyloe is Edinburgh’s first gourmet steak restaurant and offers dining with a view in Old Town. The name Kyloe is an old Scot’s word for Highland cattle, so you can tuck into prime beef cuts from quality local suppliers while gazing out at stunning panoramas of Edinburgh Castle.
As well as Scottish produce, premium Japanese steaks are served too, all in a chic setting decked out in shades of chocolate and caramel, with cow print seating. And if you want to take a non-carnivorous friend along with you, don’t worry, as the restaurant offers vegetarian options as well.
Premium produce with a fine dining flourish
As you would expect, the menu celebrates all that is steak and you can choose from rump, sirloin, ribeye, fillet, Wellington and sharing choices such as Chateaubriand and cote de boeuf.
Kyloe’s set menus can vary with the seasons, but might include starters such as the chopped salad with goats cheese or the black pudding & mushroom on sourdough.
Mains might feature the Highland Wagyu Brisket with bacon mash, kale and red wine jus, the Malone’s 7oz sirloin steak frites with hand-cut chips, peppercorn and whisky sauce, and the Hardies steak with superfood salad, chimichurri and the option of adding hand-cut chips for a supplement. Veggies can enjoy options such as the beetroot grain cake with wild mushroom, leek and caramelised goats cheese.
For dessert you could indulge in the blood orange cheesecake, the selection of homemade ice creams & sorbets, or the cheddar cheese, chutney and oatcakes.
City centre transport links and attractions
Kyloe is on Rutland Street, a short stroll from Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and House of Fraser. Paid parking can be found nearby at the NCP on Edinburgh Castle Terrace. If you are arriving by train, the restaurant is around a fifteen minute walk from Waverley station.
