“Absolutely Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I ate at Kyloe this evening and found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We were served by Natalie who was charming and knowledgable about all aspects of the menu.

We skipped starters as we had ordered a 475g Chateaubriand and a 700g Sirloin on the bone. These came out cooked to perfection and were very tasty!

Natalie looked after us and was not intrusive in the slightest.

We polished off out steak and had Knickerbockerglory for dessert. This wasn't the best dessert we'd ever eaten but was passable.

A great experience and completely recommended.

“We've never had a bad meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We discovered Kyloe in January last year and since then we have hardly been anywhere else.
Fantastic food time after time, we've taken advantage of offers and also been for wine tasting nights, which are amazing.
Visited on Saturday 2nd of February, the restaurant was busy but service was attentive and quick. The mussels with chorizo, tomato and rocket were a revelation.
The only disappointment we had was we'd been looking forward to the pineapple tarte tatin but the new menu had started the night before but the rhubarb and custard souffle more than made up for it
We'll be back again soon.

“Different kind of dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We recently dined here on a midweek night and although we phoned beforehand to enquire if we needed to reserve a table it turned out to be very busy when we got there. Having said that we were greeted and seated very quickly.
The decor is unique to this kind of dining and very well laid out restaurant with a fun feel about it. The staff were very well informed about the menu and wine list recommendations and as for the steaks.....delicious!
Although not a cheap night it was certainly most enjoyable and we look forward to returning again with friends on our next visit to Edinburgh.

“Delicious steak, great for gluten free, excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We visited Kyloe after researching gluten free friendy restaurant in the Edingburgh area. We were on a city break for my husbands birthday and as he loves steak this seemed like the perfect place to go! We weren't disappointed and were extremely impressed with both the food and the service we received. Our waitress was extremely knowledgable and happy to talk is through the vast steak menu offering advice on the different cuts and what we might like. On her recommendation we opted for sirloin on the bone to share and 4 different side orders. The portion sizes were very good and we struggled to get through all the steak! We didn't even have room for dessert! The waitress knew which menu options were gluten free (virtually all) and was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return when visiting Edinburgh again in the future.

“Friendly Warm Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We visited this steak restaurant through a friends recommendation. It's quite a nice place, interesting seating layout and the mood lighting is relaxing. If you get a window table the view takes you all the way across Princes St and the gardens.

Neither of us had been here before and we were charmed by our waitress, who was a lovely, delightful girl, she informed us of the steak offers and even came out with a full tray of steak cuts to explain each one with meticulous detail, it was a nice touch. The manner of our young waitress was so delicate, warm and friendly, that we all took to her immediately and we began asking her questions, mainly about her unusual accent. Turns out she was from Lithuania. She recommended a lovely red wine, we ended up with a few bottles.

So we all ordered steaks, mine was a sirloin, medium. It was really tasty, cooked to my liking and I don't have any major complaints, although I have tasted better, for Edinburgh this was lovely. Most of my group were satisfied with what we got, the sides were sufficient and the food and wine tasty and a great accompaniment.

On the whole I would have to say that we will most lightly be back here with new friends, as much for the staff (our lovely waitress), as the food. The restaurant is making a really good effort in providing a fine dinning experience in steak cuisine.
