Superb new steakhouse by the Rabbie Burns statue in Leith. Brilliant food, service, wine, surroundings - what's not to like?

Worryingly empty on a Friday night though. The location may not help, being hidden away just off the main street, but worth seeking out. A really good addition to the
Leith restaurant scene. Get there and help it survive!

I have visited Rib Aye twice. Once for dinner on a Friday night and on a Sunday afternoon.

The staff are lovely and they have a great menu with plenty of choices.

I enjoyed both visits however the lunch menu is just brilliant. Most dishes £5 and they're such good value. I had the burger and fries (which were extra) but similar places would be in excess of £10/15 and this cost £7.

Go!

We had rib-eye and t-bone steaks. Meat was excellent, service friendly and prices fair. Would like to see bigger rib-eye cuts but aside from that it was great. Would go again.

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night. Onion rings were superb as were the chips, however my steak was not cooked to how I asked (medium-rare) Instead was very rare! I ate it anyway as was so hungry. My girlfriends burger was nice but very stodgy. There are better steak places in Edinburgh.

Impromptu invite from a friend who was in town with his daughter, the best kind of surprise dinner invite! Lovely menu, good menu options but only ever one for me in a steak restaurant... rare ribeye... and it was cooked to perfection! Great hand cut chips, the parfait I had as a starter was also delish with a refreshingly excellent oatcake to pate ratio (so annoying in other places to run out of toast/oatcakes!) crisp fresh wine and although I didn't (couldn't!) stretch to dessert, the cranachan cheesecake and chocolate mousse on the other side of the table looked fab! Will become a regular haunt, particularly as the owner was trialling new Scottish Gins for the bar that night... :D
