I love coffee (Nespresso especially – anyone who knows me will know what my favourite bit of kitchen kit is just now) […]

The Mulroy, in Edinburgh’s West End, this could be my new favourite Restaurant!

It was exquisite, every single last morsel. Clever, exciting food combinations and elegant presentation created one of my favourite dining experiences to date. The noises that we were emitting could have been construed to be highly indecent but we couldn’t stop and our smiles didn’t fade all afternoon. In fact our boss and his wife were planning their visit for the very next day.

I can’t wait to go back and try the a la carte menu along with a more generous helping of the old red stuff to wash it down. I can’t recommend you try this find heartily enough and at £13.50 for 2 courses on the lunch time menu it’s an absolute steal! Just don’t expect a highly effusive greeting, service or farewell!

Kyloe, Edinburgh’s new Gourmet Steak Restaurant at The (newly-refurbed) Rutland

To summarise, it was good, REALLY tasty meat and a really interesting pleasurable dining experience, a couple of tweaks would make it perfect but it’s still in soft launch mode, the official opening is tomorrow (the 28th). Handily situated just around the corner, we will definitely be going back, and taking clients, moving forwards! It’s a quality offering at a quality price point but if you’re on a budget there are cheaper set-menu options for lunch or dinner. Yes, they knew I was coming and that it would be blogged but we did find it hard to pick fault, apart from the chips and a bit of a delay in paying for our drinks, neither major issue,s I’ll be happy to recommend and return as a fully paying customer.
