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.

This has long been one of my wife and my favourite Edinburgh dining spots and I was stunned to note that it was almost three years since our last visit. On this occasion we were accompanied by some Francophile friends who used to spend a...More
Very pleasant romantic meal out. The menu was authentic, imaginative and well balanced. My wife is allergic to shell fish and the staff knew exactly what was in their dishes. The pudding menu was wonderful - we couldn't but have some!

What a fantastic small friendly and cosy restaurant just off the Royal Mile. Arrive before 6.30 for the theatre special, or for a little more pennies the gourmand option. The charming hosts talk you through the excellent menu including regional specials (we went on a...More
Great lunch. Proper Languedoc. Great wine. Knowledgeable staff (not always a given in Edinburgh). Reasonable price - wine a bit expensive, perhaps, but La Garrigue prides itself on its careful choice of wines. Quiet, intimate, good for couples and/or small groups. French themed music and...More
Popped in on our annual visit on a Thursday in January. Warmly greeted by Jean Michelle.
We had the set lunch, which lived up to expectations, and enjoyed a Carafe or two of the house wine,.
Roll on next January !
La Garrigue is conveniently located four minutes’ walk from Waverley Station, via the Market Street exit, although I have to say it would be worth walking a couple of kilometres or more to enjoy its authentic French cuisine.

Food and drinks fantastic, service impeccable. A peaceful retreat from the December Christmas partying on the Sunday night we were there. Could not have been more sensitive to the needs of the lactose intolerant member of our party! Food adapted to meet her needs.
We returned to La Garrigue and once again had a lovely meal accompanied by very pleasant wine from their extensive list which wasn't too expensive. We had the set lunch and there was a lovely variety of meals on offer.
My only negative was that...More
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
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
