    Lovely restaurant with good ambience. The menu was not vast but there were enough choices. The starter and main course I had were as described and delicious however my husband was disappointed with his fillet steak (the most expensive dish) It was served medium rare as requested but was lukewarm at best, the butter on the top of it was still solid! We did 'point this out to staff who did their best to rectify. We would still dine there again.

    It’s been a long time since we visited La Garrigue and this did not disappoint. The food was interesting and delicious, and the wine list excellent and very good value. We had soufflé, rabbit terrine, smoked trout starters and rabbit, fish mains. Lovely puddings too. Thoroughly recommend.

    Our favourite restaurant for lunch in Edinburgh. From their friendly welcome right through to coffee with a wee something to accompany it, it was excellent as always. The food was delicious and is a wee bit different being more regional, rather than run of the mill. A very good,interesting and again regional wine list, promoting the Languedoc. I would recommend La Garrigue to anyone.

    A great French place in a back street between the Waverley railway station and the Royal Mile. Well worth the two or three minutes walk away from the main visitor routes! (and indeed many locals have yet to discover it)
