Our cabbie had suggested McKirdy's as the best steak house in Edinburgh. I can't disagree with that as far as the food. Delicious, tender steak with tasty side dishes. Friendly atmosphere and good service. However, the atmosphere is greatly lacking if you are looking for a nice dinner spot. While our meal was outstanding, our tab was as well. We... More

After the first bite into my burger, I got a flashback of the fantastic burgers my grandmother used to make. I usually have my burgers medium to medium-well to have flavor, but the chef at this placed seasoned the meat to perfection and it was moist, despite being well-done. I would have given 5-stats, but the service needs a major... More

We had an excellent evening, fab food and great service. All 6 of us enjoyed our meals from the strips of fillet in a sweet chilli sauce, steaks and the chicken with haggis was lovely. Some of us ventured into the deserts and again were not disappointed. Staff were helpful and funny. Great night. Will definitely return

We had read about this restaurant in the Edinburgh guide. So decided to book. How glad we are that we did so. It is not in a place that you would normally walk by if you are a tourist as we were. The place is small, clean, warm and welcoming. The staff are great. The food-well just fantastic. My husband... More

Great steak. You'd walk past this little place and not know what you were missing. Creamy garlic mushrooms were great.

After a week of traveling in Scotland and not finding an option of lamb chops for dinner, we came across McKirdy's. The chops were prepared nicely and quite a large portion. My son had the black and blue burger which he enjoyed also. Good value and convenient location. Definitely wound eat there again!
