Review | Kyloe Restaurant & Grill, Edinburgh

During our amazing stay at The Rutland Hotel & Apartments in Edinburgh, me and my boyfriend were kindly invited to dine at Kyloe Restaurant & Grill to experience their 'Taste Of Scotland' menu.




Only a few steps away from the hotel, the restaurant is located above The Huxley - so convenient! When we were shown to our table, we couldn't help but admire the unique interior of the restaurant with its cow prints and cow hide furniture. Not to the mention, we had a great view of Edinburgh Castle from where we were sitting! Dining with beautiful scenery always score great points from me.

The Taste of Scotland menu had two choices on there - A Selection of Scottish Meat & Seafood or The Scottish Steak Selection. Being serious meat-eaters, the Scottish Steak Selection was a no-brainer for us. The platter involved:

- 700g Sirloin on the Bone,
- Individual Beef Wellington
- 225g Highland Wagyu
- Beef Dripping Chips,
- Garlic Mushrooms,
- Rocket Salad
- Red Wine Sauce

We did spot on the menu that the platter serves 4 people but we still tucked in to the complimentary home-made bread that we were given as a starter. Normally when we get given bread before our meals, it gets left un-touched because it's often cold or hard. At Kyloe, I was given a fresh roll of crusty bread whilst Sat was given a gluten-free mini loaf. Both were served warm and came with butter and a delicious red pepper spread. We literally had to stop ourselves from finishing our bread because we wanted to save space for the platter - it tasted so good!


When our Scottish Steak Selection platter arrived, we were literally in awe. Seeing the different types of steak on one board got us so excited. I've always wanted to try Beef Wellington but never really had the chance to. Now that I've tried it, I can honestly say that I love it. The pastry was crisp and the meat was really tender. Kyloe served the Beef Wellington pink and had a slather of bone marrow in between the meat and the pastry, which added to the flavour. If you're not too fond of bone marrow, then I wouldn't recommend this to you because the taste of the bone marrow itself was quite strong.

I would recommend the Sirloin on the Bone to anyone though (apart from vegetarians of course). The meat just slides off the bone and was so juicy and tender! It was definitely Sat's favourite, as he ate the majority of it. The Wagyu was my favourite. If you don't know what Wagyu is, Wagyu is the world's most expensive cut of meat because it has more mono-unsaturated fats (good fats) than any other type of beef. Due to its intense marbling, it gives that buttery melt-in-the-mouth tenderness that all meat lovers crave. I'll be honest, I devoured the whole thing myself because Sat was too busy demolishing the sirloin. The sides that came with the meat completes the whole experience. The Beef Dripping Chips were the fluffiest chips I've ever eaten and the Rocket Salad complemented the steaks really well. The red wine sauce was nice, but as I always eat my steak with mustard and ketchup, I preferred sticking to my norm. The best thing from the sides were the Garlic Mushrooms. There's no such thing as 'too much garlic' to me and those mushrooms weren't an exception - they were so divine!

All in all, it's inevitable to say that the Taste of Scotland menu from Kyloe was amazing. I've been to many steakhouses before but I've never really been to one that offered a platter of different steak cuts/types. It was such a great experience dining at Kyloe, and I totally recommend it to anyone who loves meat like I do.
