We enjoyed a lovely lunch here, my only criticism would be that 3 out of 4 starters contained eggs which I detest, however the soup was a dream! Lovely main courses and a great cheeseboard plus friendly helpful staff! We’ll be back!

This restaurant offers French cuisine and the menu for non meat eaters is limited but there are some tasty and interesting dishes (including a very nicely presented large artichoke) although some of the other vegetables were lacking in much taste. We were encouraged to upgrade...More

When in Edinburgh I enjoy having lunch here. It is close to Waverley station (use Market St exit) and is an attractive French restaurant offering excellent lunch options. I love the ambience and staff are welcoming and professional. Treat yourself!

First of all, this is a really nice restaurant: the staff are lovely, attentive, the wine is excellent, and the french bread and butter was dreamy, as it should be. However, for the wrong side of £45 each, I felt there were a few flaws...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

The restaurant in Jeffrey Street is only about 150 metres to the Junction where the Royal Mile/High St. starts . It is also only a little further downhill to the rear entrance of Waverley Station.

Close to the Royal Mile, La Garrigue is a low-key yet chic French restaurant in the buzzing heart of Edinburgh city centre. Smart hyacinth and white-panelled walls strike a stylishly understated tone, with simple wooden seating and bright windows offering views over Carlton Hill. Cuisine is similarly deceptively rustic, specialising in signature dishes from the rural Languedoc region of southern France heartened by deft modern cooking.
