La Garrigue is a French bistro located at 31 Jeffrey Street, just a stones throw from Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile and minutes away from Waverley station. The restaurant is themed around the culinary specialities of the Languedoc region of France, offering rustic French home cooking with a modern touch.
Since its opening in 2001, La Garrigue has earned plenty of critical commendations. It is a fitting venue for an intimate lunch or dinner experience as well as for small group events.
The wine list is extensive and is suitably representative of Languedoc, the largest of France's wine producing regions.

A pleasant dining experience with well prepared cuisine. Ambiance relaxed and atmospheric, Menu du patron allows dining for an acceptable outlay. Wines overpriced. Service friendly but variable levels of training. Shall return.

We enjoyed a wonderful three course dinner on the le menu de patron which was fantastic value. The food was great and reminded us of happy holidays spent in France, the service was attentive and the wine list had a great variety. The views over Carlton hill were lovely too. We will definitely visit again

Size of portion very small for the price eg 2 very small scallops for almost £10.
Main courses were uninspiring and bland eg cassoulet almost lacking in any flavour. Sea bream consisted of 2 small fillets placed on a few placed spreadings of fancy purées. Lacking flavour also.
We had been given a voucher for Christmas and love french cooking. We were very disappointed to say the least.
When we eat out we always leave a minimum of 10%. This amount was automatically added to the bill. We paid the bill and left feeling somewhat deflated.
We will not be making a return visit. There are other french restaurants in Edinburgh which are much better all round.

Outstanding regional French cuisine served by charming, friendly French wait staff. I had cassoulet, my son lamb and his girlfriend an excellent duck. We were all delighted and then dessert even better. Very good wine list from the Laungedoc. Couldn’t be more pleased.

This is the second time I have eaten here. I had dinner with my wife on my birthday last year, and this time my daughter was with us too for lunch before we went to a show. My wife has also had lunch there with friends, as my daughter has with work colleagues too. The food was delicious and well presented, and the set menu is very good value. The staff were attentive without being over the top. They even allowed us to sit in before opening time because of the wet and windy weather. We'll be back!

Although we have been to the restaurant a number of times before, it had been a little time since our last visit, yet we were welcomed warmly as usual as if we were friends. The restaurant ambience was great as usual, and of course the food was just exceptional again.
If you haven’t eaten here before, then you really should visit. Fantastic service and amazingly tasty food
Thks!

Another excellent meal at La Garrigue. The welcome was as warm as ever and the staff as friendly as ever, happy to spend time talking and very knowledgable about the items on the menu. We were there for a pre theatre meal which required a speedier exit than planned because there had been a hold up getting there because of an accident, but the staff were very helpful.

Starters of soufflé and the egg were good, the soups had a lovely depth of flavour; the steaks were enjoyed for the main courses but the cassoulet was outstanding.

Wine list is surprisingly long but full of unusual selections and good value

An easy place to eat lovely food
