Kyloe Restaurant and Grill

Kyloe Restaurant & Grill

Kyloe is Edinburgh’s first gourmet steak restaurant. The name Kyloe, an old Scots word for Highland beef cattle, was chosen for the restaurant as it represents the strength and versatility of Scottish beef produce. Using cuts from pedigree Aberdeen Angus – supplied by some of Scotland’s top farms and butchers – their aim is to bring their customers the best possible steak experience.

Kyloe have created an innovative grill menu, using a selection of traditional cuts, along with some more unusual cuts chosen for their texture and flavour. This is complemented by their robust a la carte menu which features Scottish seasonal produce, responsibly sourced and simply prepared to create a series of compelling dishes, including a tasty shellfish section and mouth-watering desserts.
Their unique and interesting wine list has been sourced through numerous wine merchants and features Kyloe’s signature wine ‘Angus the Bull’, a South Australian Cabernet Sauvignon which is the ideal complement for your steak.

The first floor restaurant can be found in The Rutland Hotel at Edinburgh’s West End and boasts enviable views of Edinburgh Castle. Open from 12pm for lunch and 5pm for dinner service.

Twenty Princes Street

Twenty Princes Street

Twenty Princes Street

Twenty Princes Street has made a real impression on the dining scene in Edinburgh since it opened in Summer 2013 and has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors to the city – gaining an enviable reputation for its innovative, seasonal menus and extensive drinks menu, as well as stunning panoramic views over Princes Street, the Old Town and all the way up towards the Castle.

Twenty presents a wondrously elegant and stunning setting that is sure to bewitch even the most cosmopolitan of patrons, offering a trendy and sophisticated dining experience where the ambience is refreshingly informal and the atmosphere is glamorous, but not glitzy.

The restaurant’s interiors are a blend of old and new; triple-height bay windows and period features nodding to its Victorian heritage, while illuminated curved leather and walnut booths and shiny marbles tables give the restaurant some contemporary credentials. Light and bright, with walls adorned with pictures and photographs reflecting the history of Edinburgh and the most amazing views in town, Twenty Princes Street is captivating and capacious with a fabulous wine wall that adds further interest to the room.

One of the most eye-catching elements is the stunning ornate ceiling which has been sympathetically reinstated and dazzling designer light fittings loom majestically overhead in this large yet intimate space.

Executive Chef Tony Sarton demonstrates culinary flair with an inventive and eclectic menu that keeps apace with the seasons, using a wide range of Scottish produce and only the finest locally sourced ingredients.

It’s not surprising that Tony claimed the coveted title of ‘Chef of the Year’ at the 2015 Scottish Hotel Awards as he likes to push boundaries and add a little theatre and fun – Scottish brown crab is artfully deconstructed as tea and toast: the shell turned into a pot of strong, sea-salty broth, the brown meat into delicate mousse & the white into a creamy, refreshing parfait to spread on a tiny bread loaf and a glass cloche is lifted to reveal a puff of hickory smoke, presenting a tender, blood-red Border beef carpaccio, soft-boiled quails’ eggs, pickled walnuts and crunchy baby onion rings! Traditional dishes also shine with a well-seasoned, succulent ribeye steak seared to 450˚C in the much-vaunted charcoal-fuelled Josper grill and oven, while a sublime seafood box of half lobster with scallops, mussels, cockles and fresh, sweet langoustine is amazing value.

Twenty’s signature dishes include Seared West Coast scallops & medallions of lobster with apple consommé & vanilla; Buccleuch black pudding & pork belly roll with apple purée & sage oil; Twenty Burger, a 7oz chuck steak burger with crispy bacon, smoked mayonnaise and Innis & Gunn rarebit, served with triple-cooked chips and salad leaves; Chipotle & maple-glazed Secreto de Iberico pork, piquillo pepper gnocchi and green beans; Salt & rosemary-baked seabass with pickled spring vegetable & warm potato salad, lemon & chervil butter; ‘Fire & Ice’ Banoffee Baked Alaska – Flaming rum, caramelised banana, toffee & vanilla ice cream, sponge & toasted meringue.

There’s an extensive drinks list, including 19 wines by the glass and adjacent bar, Juniper, is perfect for pre or post-prandial drinks.
