My girlfriend and I went there because we wanted to experience Scotland Beef, We are fortunate to have tried Beef in Argentina, Brazil, USA...but this place surpassed everything we've ever had including Hawksmoor in London. We had the cote de boeuf for two, it was exceptional, melt in your mouth experience. The service matched the food. A must if you... More

Visited last Friday before a concert and had a great meal and some lovely wine. The four of us fancied a steak so this place was quite an obvious choice. A young lady came along with a tray of steak and explained each cut to us and the best way to have it cooked. She was extremely professional and a... More

Visited with my other half on a busy Friday evening. Very welcoming on arrival and quickly shown to our table. We were both planning to have steaks and part of the pre-ordering process was the chance to have quick overview of all the different types on offer, seeing them in their uncooked state. Very useful and a nice idea. Anyway,... More

We got a really nice table where our server was also really helpful. The Rib-eye steak was great and the side dishes also. I would also recommend the cocktails. Happy overall with this place.

Family evening meal was enjoyed by all. The food was excellent, though not inexpensive, and the service was very good. The restaurant was comfortable and relaxed. The only sour taste was being, we felt, signifcantly overcharged by the taxi driver the restaurant called for us - please use a different taxi company when booking for your guests!

After a long day at the office, a decision was made to go out for dinner rather than start from scratch at home and not really finish and clear up at 10pm We phoned Kyloe to check availability and got a table for 7:30.

My wife and I were in Edinburgh for our anniversary and wanted somewhere good for a steak. Kyloe was recommended to us (the name apparently means small cow??) and it certainly didn't disappoint. It's certainly not the cheapest place to eat (cost us £100 for 2 starters and mains and 2 wines), and if you are really hungry well the... More

We came here for a birthday meal and it was fantastic. Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful, even served a cake we brought from home at the end of the meal. The starter I had was called Venison Haggis (I think) and I managed to nab the last one available. Glad I did too as it was cooked to perfection!... More

Visited Kyloe for dinner with business colleagues. 2nd time here. Superb steaks. Good atmosphere and always busy. Service friendly and efficient service. Excellent wine list. Only downside? Onion rings very disappointing- doughy and not fresh or hot. Otherwise top steakhouse in the city centre and recommend Charlie

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
