My partner had booked this restaurant prior to our trip to Edinburgh to ensure we had a table and I'm so so pleased he did! The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The waitress serving us asked if we would like to see the 'steak board' which we did-she brought over a board with the various... More

The restaurant has a relaxing and dimly lit atmosphere with friendly and welcoming staff. There were four of us and every one of us throughly enjoyed our meals. The starters were outstanding (I had the braised... More

We were a table of four on a recent Saturday night. A very warm welcome by the lady on "reception", and smiles from all the staff we passed on the way to our table. Plenty of waiting staff to take coats and our early drinks order. TIP: ask for a booth as comfortable seats, less movement of staff and customers... More

We have just been here for a Xmas family meal. Not only was the Xmas menu not on which we confirmed twice over the telephone that it was supposed to be on. We had 3 waiters who didn't have a clue about any dishes from soup to kids menu! Not great. Hugely disappointed, over rated. I can't believe people rate... More

Very trendy and chic restaurant. The place was really busy and the staff were under pressure but still helpful and friendly. My starter of scotch egg and black pudding was superb. The fillet steak was great but I struggled with the helpings. Would definitely go back but they really need to get draft lager in the restaurant.

Great steak restaurant at the end of Princes St. Good choice of steaks, extensive wine list and excellent service. Very good for people with allergies / intolerances with gluten free options readily available upon request. Recommend to book in advance as it can get quite busy.

Extremely quirky restaurant that is an homage to all things bovine. Comfortable booths, upscale environment that is still accepting of casual attire. Absolutely the best beef we had during our stay throughout Scotland. Had the Cote de Boeuf for two. All appetizers equally delicious. Would definitely dine here again.

We celebrated our sons graduation last weekend and booked the graduation dinner at the Kyloe. The food and service was fantastic and there is a great atmosphere in the very busy restaurant.

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.
