For our special Saturday night meal during our weekend stay I had picked the brains of a friend who visits Edinburgh often for a few good choices. She'd suggested La Garrigue on Jeffrey Street. I had booked ahead several weeks before our trip. Firstly, as we were staying in the Jury's Inn, we were a bit taken aback by just... More

Had late lunch here with three friends. Friendly atmosphere and not noisy which was great as we could converse easily. Fish of the day for main course - described as with Puy lentils and prawns. We were warned beforehand that there were no lentils left so it would come with polenta, which was fine. However, it also arrived with no... More

Wow! Delicious. A restaurant I would recommend to any one who likes good gourmet food. However, not necessarily big portions. But, do not get me wrong, the reasonable size portions are not tiny, just good size. Enjoy it. It is a place to visit.

We were in Edinburgh for a few days and after reading reviews on trip advisor we decided to go here. The service was excellent and food outstanding. Recommend the pigeon to start and the duck or pork for main were both delicious. Would highly recommend and definitely go back if I was in Edinburgh again!

The menu was so good it was difficult to just choose one form each course. Service really good and attentive. Great wine at affordable price. We had a table for 5 at the window and the view over Carlton Hill was brilliant. We were over for the European rugby finals and always like to have a great meal afterwards to... More

This was our stop for our last night in Edinburgh. It also happened to be my mom's birthday. She's not s fan of French food, but I convinced her to try it. And she absolutely loved the place. The food was outstanding. The pigeon with puff pastry is a great choice for a starter. The duck breast was out of... More

Had set lunch here but should have booked in advance as we were lucky to get a table and then only had it for 75 minutes. Broccoli soup was very good as was the plaice main but the pork belly main had obviously sat too long somewhere as some of the pork portion was chewy/ verging on being burnt on... More

On our last night in Edinburgh, we decided we wanted to go to a good restaurant and enjoy the experience. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The food was delicious and the wine list more than adequate. We had a very pleasant dining experience and were sorry that it was our last night, as we... More

Last night was the third time I have eaten here - all 6 six of us had wonderful starters and main courses, and those of us who had pudding were very happy indeed. The fish of the day (plaice fillet with saffron rice) was melt in the mouth delicious. The house wine (red and white) was certainly very drinkable! A... More

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.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
