Got the Bank Holiday Monday off? Fancy a bite? Check these new 5pm Dining members in Edinburgh.
Restaurants are always joining 5pm Dining. Below we have three Edinburgh restaurants which have recently started to provide booking and offers with 5pm Dining.
Book in and tuck in.
5pm Dining: The Basement
Long a Broughton Street favourite, The Basement offers banging cocktails, cool tunes and a fresh take on modern Mexican food. Looks groovy too. Love the Day of the Dead motif.
Naturally, there are all the fajitas, enchiladas and chilli that you could possibly want. We like the tacos. Especially the slow-cooked pork shoulder with grilled pineapple and fennel slaw.
You can book in today via 5pm Dining and enjoy a taco, a pint of beer and a tequila shot for a tenner.
5pm Dining: Kyloe
Amazing steak, a funky decor and jaw-dropping views of both Princes Street and the Castle – Kyloe has got it all. The à la carte menu is packed with carefully sourced, top quality Scottish steaks. Alongside the conventional cuts, there is the option to order up sharing steaks such as the côte de boeuf, Chateaubriand and Porterhouse.
And, if you really want an extra special treat, take a look at the select breed section of the menu. From fullblood Wagyu to Belted Galloway and Dexter, the beef gourmet is very well looked after here.
Not that you need to break the bank to enjoy great beef at Kyloe. Book in with 5pm and you can enjoy the three course early dinner menu for £23.
Exact dishes may vary but typical main courses include Highland Wagyu brisket; Malone’s 7oz sirloin steak frites and a steak salad made with superlative beef from Hardiesmill in the Borders.
5pm Dining: Stocks Urban Bistro and Bar
Located on St Giles Street in the Old Town, Stocks Urban Bistro & Bar serves up modern European dishes in a relaxed setting. The stylish, mellow interior is sure to help you unwind with its elegant booths, earthy colours and playful monkey wall lamps. The cosy bar area has arguably the most impressive views in the capital.
5pm Dining means you can book in and enjoy two course plus tea or coffee from the lunch or pre-theatre menu for £16.50.
We would start with crab on toast with avocado, ricotta, mango and chilli. To follow, it would be a tough call between the venison ragu with pappardelle and truffle Pecorino or the char grilled chicken with Wagyu bon bons.
If the weather was as gorgeous as it has been recently, we might be tempted by the Caesar salad.
