Steak and Shoes: How I spent my Friday night

Steak and Shoes: How I spent my Friday night

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try out new Edinburgh restaurant, Steak on Stones, on Friday night.

Now I might be a vegetarian/ occasional pescetarian, but any novel dining experience and I’ve got to get involved. Also, ¬†excuse to plan an outfit! So after checking they served up more than raw steak (they did, yay!) I took the man along for a feed.

The Look

So first, things first- the look. For Valentine’s I was given a beautiful pair of cobalt Carvelas and I hadn’t had a chance to wear them. I styled my outfit around them (even though I can never get my shoes in my pictures ffs).


Jacket: Boohoo; Top: eBay; Jeans: ASOS; Necklace: Vivienne Westwood

I absolutely love this statement jacket that I picked up last summer. I decided to make it the focus of my outfit so kept the rest simple.

These high-waisted jeans from ASOS are my absolute favourite! They show off my ghetto booty and help suck in my waist- both definite plusses in my book. However, I was definitely feeling the strain round my tummy after dinner. Maybe I should have made the most of the sports luxe trend right now and rocked up in some sweatpants? Nah.

The Food

So here’s the concept- you order matured Orkney steak in multiples of 200g and whichever sides and sauces appeal, then your meat is taken to your table along with a hot granite slab. Pretty cool, no? I was told the meat was really delicious, although I obviously can’t verify this myself.


I went for the fish and chips which was beautiful! The batter was lovely and light yet crispy. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Sides-wise I went for chilli greens which is how I think all my veggies should be from now on- fresh, flavoursome, and just a little spicy. Steak on Stones also offers smoked cheese mac and I was very tempted by its cheesy goodness as well. Ugh, I just love food far too much (hence the ghetto booty).


Be sure to save space for dessert- on offer are huge, sugary doughnuts with either custard, jam, apple or fudge filling. They positively ooze.


Have you been to any great restaurants in Edinburgh recently? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
