Great Steaks

I had a filet steak with the great diane and stilton sauce and the baked potatoe. It was delisousus. Perfekt.

Visited for an evening meal and felt very lucky to get a table as its only a small place which makes it feel lovely and homely. Loved my steak topped with haggis sauce and there's also a great range of starters many with a very Scottish twist. Worth a visit if you want to sample proper local cuisine.

Friendly and fast service. Amazing steaks, tender and juicy, but the pre made fries spoiled the impression a bit.

We went here to eat as part of my stag weekend and I'd heard that this was a special place. We weren't disappointed. A fantastic range of meats, all from their own butchers shop. Can't wait to go back again

Beautiful cuts of steak cooked to perfection and served beautifully - friendly staff and great atmosphere. Really good food, but pricey but well worth a special visit.

Booked McKirdy's for a meal on the first night of a stag do. With serving food until so late it suited the fact that some of the party weren't arriving until 9/930. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and sat us down on a nice big table, allowing plenty of space for 12 guys. We decided to keep things... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods 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 theaters 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.
