About La Garrigue
La Garrigue is a French bistro located at 31 Jeffrey Street, just a stone's 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. Owner and chef Jean Michel Gauffre’s exhaustive knowledge of the region helps in presenting the best of pastoral French cuisine and an ambience that evokes southern France. 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, with a menu that is updated almost daily. Apart from delicious lunch and dinner recipes, it has a separate all-day menu. The wine list is extensive and is suitably representative of Languedoc, the largest of France's wine producing regions.

La Garrigue Ratings and Reviews
There were five of us for a family birthday celebration. Service was great - friendly, helpful, and available for advice on the menu ( how spicy certain items might be, for example.) we chose a wide variety of dishes and all were excellent - empty plates left after each course tell their own story. The wine list was also well studied and their Corbières was well liked. For five of us with 3 courses each and wine, the overall price was very acceptable. Service charge was left to us to decide. We shall DEFINITELY use Là Garrigue again.
I booked for a friend's 60th birthday and was not disappointed. The service, the food and the overall experience was lovely. We had a circular table in a semi-private area for our event. This was so much better than long tables as everyone was able to chat and interact easily. The sommelier recommended a wonderful wine which accompanied the food extremely well. The food is beautifully cooked with a sure and capable hand in the kitchen. Thank you to the staff who made my friend's 60th birthday a very memorable one.
I was recommended this wonderful French restaurant by a friend. It was even better than expected. The food was beautiful, creative and the portion size was exceedingly better than I imagined. I requested wines to be matched for the courses chosen.. customer service was excellent and staff attentive without being obtrusive. Service was polite. . I've heard it's excellent for lunch too. We travelled from the Lake District for a flying visit and it didn't disappoint. We'll be back!
Charming french dining experience. The food was tremendous, but struggled to finding main course due to large portion size. Maybe if I didn't take the starter.....but they sounded too tasty to pass up. It really feels like you are in France. Wonderful wine list is worthy of an honourable mention.
We went to La Garrigue, on a Thursday evening in January whilst on a short visit to Edinburgh. The restaurant was not as busy as I would expect it would be at a weekend. Having visited the region of France several times we thought we would like what was on offer and we were not disappointed. The meal was beautifully prepared and presented. The wine, like the food was of an excellent quality and the staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful. All in all if you want an authentic french restaurant with excellent food and wine at reasonable price, look no further. Easily accessible for center of Edinburgh and well worth a visit.
Brought three friends here for Hogmanay lunch. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh and I wanted my friends to experience it too. They were extremely impressed by all aspects of the meal. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented, the service was excellent - very friendly and attentive, - and the set menu offered a wide choice of dishes at a very reasonable price. A memorable and very enjoyable experience.
Outstanding meal. The Beef Cheek was superb as was the the blue cheese soufflé and Rabbit. Extensive wine list. As good an authentic French restaurant as you will find in Scotland.
Very friendly and and knowledgeable staff.
Overall a wonderful dining experience.
Our visit was the first time we have been to this restaurant. The welcome was good and the staff during our meal were very friendly and attentive. Well done ! The christmas menu was good and we both enjoyed it. The A La Carte menu looks fantastic so we will probably be back to sample this.
