    We had trouble finding the entrance to Kyloe (via pub) and arrived 6.20 pm (5 minutes late) fully aware from online confirmation that our table had to be vacated by 8.30 pm. As we were shown to our table (not quite seated) the waitress reminded us which we felt was not particularly welcoming. We ordered about 10 mins later, and very promptly served wine and bread. As the plates were cleared a very quick toilet visit was not quick enough to beat the arrival/setting down of starters which were very promptly swapped for steaks. The food was very good quality, however it was rich and we felt so rushed that one of us felt really ill at the table. I asked for the bill at exactly 7.05 pm, paid at 7.16 pm and we vacated the restaurant - needless to say we left no tip !! We had looked forward to the Kyloe experience but it turned out to be a bitter disappointment because service was unbelievably rushed.

    A summary explanation of our ratings follows
    Food - very good quality
    Ambience - excellent, we felt we had good space and privacy at the table, only pointer is that it was a little dark to read the menu
    Service - absolutely terrible on this occasion, although the waiter who brought the bill was very pleasant with an entirely different approach
    Value - we expected to pay city prices and if our meal had been well paced and service better we would have considered it to be good value despite having to pay for sides to accompany a steak. Perhaps it is profiteering to charge £3 for 3 x small portobello mushrooms!
    Location - very central
    We would recommend this restaurant to a friend based on the ambiance and quality of food and hope for better service.

    I'd forgotten it was Mothers' Day. Very busy. Not as "sophisticated" as I had hoped. Good wine list; interesting beer selection and really delicious duck.

    Beautiful restaurant, attentative non pushy staff. Steak to die for. Little too loud and dark for us but that is probably due to our age. (Failing eyesight and hearing ??).

    best steak ever,
    the staff was professional and friendly
    Maybe they can have a couple of more desert items.
    thank you for this great dinner.

    Took our son for his 17 th birthday - we all had fillet steak. The meal was fantastic, loved the glutton free menu as my daughter is coeliac. The staff service was perfect and their attention to detail was spot on. They then surprised my son at the end with a birthday surprise - thank you for a lovely family evening .

    Food was excellent but service, though very polite, were extremely extremely slow - waited around for long periods of time. Busy loud restaurant - probably not what we were looking for but other customers seemed to enjoy the buzz.

    Great food / steaks. Drink a bit pricey though.

  • ((((( 24 March 2017 by Stephanie Collins from Edinburgh

    We loved the décor and atmosphere of the restaurant. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful in talking us through the menu. The steak and sides were on point and your home made ice creams and sorbets were lovely. The only let down was the crème brulee, which tasted far too eggy and somewhat ready-made. All in all though, we really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back!

    I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The whole experience was relaxed and enjoyable. It was quiet when we were there though, so easy to catch the eye of the waiting staff. The explanation of the different cuts was very good. Generous portions too - my son couldn't manage dessert, which is a very rare event. Oh, and the food is spot on too. Our table had a fantastic view along Princes Street. The wine list is comprehensive, and a good range of bottled beers. I hope to visit again.
