Steak on Stones Edinburgh

Hello my pretties! I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend! I spent mine being wined and dined which was excellent! I have a bit of a different post today in keeping with my weekend theme – it’s all about FOOD. Steak to be specific. A few weeks ago Ian and I were invited to try out the new Steak on Stones* restaurant in Edinburgh.

The idea is that you cook your beef DIY style at your table on a hot stone. I’m a bit of a fiend when it comes to cooking steak correctly so this basically has my name written all over it!

As I mentioned, it’s situated in the same building as the main restaurant but off to the side with a much more quiet and chilled atmosphere which was lovely. The waitress talked us through the process and menu, and after only a short wait we were served our meat!

The steak was beautifully tender and cut in ideal slices to get an even sear. We like ours a little bit bloody and it was really easy to judge the cooking time. The stone is seasoned with salt for every batch which gave it a lovely flavour. I don’t really think there was any need for a sauce however Ian’s peppercorn choice was delicious!

If you’re looking to try something a bit different then I highly recommend Steak on Stones and needless to say we will definitely be back!
