Bite review of Kyloe

How do we know it's not Zebu?" asked Mr Bite eyeballing the menu as I idly consider that a blood splat would not be out of place in our hide-clad booth. “The supplier is Hardiesmill in the borders, it says so in the leaflet and the beef is certified pedigree Aberdeen Angus" I reply patiently “What do you fancy?"


Kyloe is part education, part meat fest. The waitress has shown us different cuts of steak and talked us though the difference in taste and recommended cooking times.


For starters though I choose fritto misto (£9.95) as there is plenty of tempting Scottish seafood on the menu too. Langoustines, baby squid, whitebait, aubergines and courgettes are fried in tempura batter with lime and saffron aioli. The prawns are quiverlingly tender and juicy; the batter dissolves in the mouth; the aioli superbly tangy, thick, rich and golden.  Mr Bite has chosen the plate of beef (£7.95); carpaccio of Aberdeen Angus fillet and horseradish cream, steak tartare with quails egg, sweet cured beef, traditional pastrami with carrot dressing. He reckons the sweet cured beef is best.


Main courses are fillet steak (£26.00) with béarnaise, hand cut chips (£ 2.75) and  creamed spinach (£3.00) for me and Mr Bite plumps for the burger slider (£13.50);  three variations include  venison & redcurrant, wild boar & apple, and Aberdeen Angus fillet with smoked cheddar cheese served with tomato relish, mustard mayo, pickles and shoestring fries. My steak is rare, juicy and velvety -and the best I remember eating. Tomatoes have been slow roasted for max sweetness and the béarnaise is deliciously decadent. Even the spinach is creamed and peppered - just so. Nothing is over-seasoned. Mr B likes the venison burger best with its mix of dark meat and sweet sauce but comments that the wild boar and apple combo needs an extra ingredient to “lift it a bit".  He proceeds to polish off the lot and slumps declaring he “can't manage pud". Lightweight!


I grasp the baton and order roasted pineapple with chilli (£6.00) lime syrup and vanilla yogurt sorbet. Pineapple aids digestion so it is a good choice; caramelised sweetness, a gentle heat and creamy sorbet.


Kyloe has a relaxed buzz, a superb menu and has attracted a herd of discerning diners.
