Steak on Stones: Edinburgh Review

Steak on Stones, Edinburgh

On Wednesday night me and Luke headed out for a perfect midweek treat, to try out the new Steak on Stones bar right here in Edinburgh. As a follow on from their current existing ‘Steak’ restaurant, steak on stones provides it’s guests with a minimal yet tasty menu, with you might have guessed it – steak. We arrived to a lovely cosy atmosphere with big traditional fires burning and a very relaxed vibe in the bar, where of course we didn’t want to skip on the cocktails. I got a mango lassi cocktail and Luke’s was ‘East to West’ (I loved the little decoration!)

What’s on the menu?

Heading through to the main restaurant area we were presented with the menu. If steak on stones really isn’t your thing they do have other options including steak frites, but we were both keen to try it. For starters the only thing they offer is a nice toasted rye bread, however for how full we both were with the steak alone I don’t think you would want something much heaver than this anyway, and nor would you want to detract from the taste.

For 200g of aged Orkney gold steak on the hot lava stone it costs Β£12, so we got 200g each which when it arrived didn’t look like a lot, but once you start eating I could hardly finish it! For someone like Luke who really enjoys his steak rare it was perfect for him to be able to take control and cook it exactly how he likes it, and for me – a little more well done. We picked a range of sauces and sides to accompany our steaks to share, including wasabi horseradish, peppercorn, and sambal sauces, and two sides of sweet potato mash with chopped walnuts on top (amazing) and the spiced greens with shredded cabbage and chillies.

Cocktails and Dessert

After enjoying our steak we both left it a whole five minutes before deciding that perhaps we could just squeeze in a little room for dessert. The only dessert they offer at Steak on Stones is a freshly made and fried doughnut which they then pipe in a filling of your choice, which goes with an accompanying cocktail. Luke went for an apple donut with matching martini, and I had the custard, with sadly no more room for another cocktail.

Overall I really enjoyed my steak and it’s definitely a novel new way to enjoy your meal out and really being involved whilst still being left to enjoy your meal in peace. I didn’t think the prices were too bad at all and the quality was definitely worth it. Have you ever tried something like Steak on Stones before? You can check it out on their website – here.
