La Garrigue, Edinburgh. NIce bistro-type French restaurant, pleasant service. We ate on a quiet Monday lunchtime (2 courses for £12.50). The food was good, but not quite as good as I had expected. Goat's cheese salad came without the goat's cheese (!). When mentioned, an apology and implausible explanation was given. Generously they did not charge for it. The mains (coley; slow cooked pork belly) were decent enough. Despite these gripes, I would be happy to go again.

Superb! I invited a friend to join me at La Garrigue (Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh) and enjoyed a splendid lunch, beautifully cooked and served. All round an excellent occasion.
La Garrigue in Jeffrey Street has an real authentic french bistro feel. Service is prompt and efficient but paced to suit diners. Food is generously portioned and offers good value for money. Well worth a visit.
The food at La Garrigue was delicious. Not very busy for a Saturday lunchtime but still had a good atmosphere.
Service was good but food was average, leaving all diners disappointed and upset that it ended up costing £35 per head for very plain, uninspiring dishes.
Lunched at La Garrigue in Jeffrey Street Edinburgh with 3 friends. Staff were friendly and knowledegable about the food which was very good. One small criticism concerned one of the starters which was off the menu despite the early start time.
Good food, excellent service. Friendly staff. Lovely ambience. Our evening at La Garrigue, Edinburgh was very enjoyable.
Had a most enjoyable lunch at La Garrigue, Edinburgh. As usual the staff were very welcoming and attentive and the meal was simple but delicious. It was a typically scottish day (blue sky and sun followed by blizzard) which made the views from the restaurant more spectacular, though looking at Calton Hill is pretty good whatever the weather.
La Garrigue, Jeffrey St in Edinburgh. A lovely wee restaurant with a cosy atmosphere, although no music. We had the £25 for two courses deal with an absolutely delicious bottle of red 2009 Palagret, followed by coffee ice cream, chocolate tart & desert wine. Disappointing that the staff did not hang our jackets on arrival and there was not a lot of room between tables. Although the food and service was excellent, at over £100 this was a once in a while treat for a special occasion.
We enjoyed a very good meal at La Garrigue (Jeffrey Street) in Edinburgh. The restaurant specialises in food and wine from the Languedoc region. The menu offers plenty of choice within each of the three courses, with the first 2 courses priced at a very reasonable £25. The wine list includes some reasonably priced but good quality wines. The food was beautifully cooked and well presented. Outstanding value for money.
Food (especially the starters) and service was excellent at La Garrigue. They forgot to add our wine to the final bill, and my husband let them know. They didn't seem overly grateful for his honesty. We will go back but it would have been a good gesture to reward our honesty in some way.
La Garrigue in Edinburgh's Jeffrey Street was a disappointment. Our cramped table at the side of a busy corridor did not help. The service swung from over attentive to non-existent. The starter of twice baked Roquefort souffle was quite simply a masterpiece whilst the slow cooked lamb shank that followed was so poor; chewy and far too firmly attached to the bone! The creme brulee was unremarkable. Maybe they were having an off-night as my experience was completely at odds with their reputation.
La Garrigue, Edinburgh Lovely meal. Reasonalby priced although the addition of wine does make it a pretty expensive night out. We paid £115 per couple. The lemon tart was exceptional.
A really nice French meal in comfortable surroundings with a strong French atmosphere. I should not have been amazed that the restaurant was virtually full on a cold winter Tuesday! An all round enjoyable meal.
we dined at lunch time on their special offer menu which was good value for money, would certainly visit this restaurant again.
La Garrigue in Jeffrey Street is a delightful little french restaurant. 2 courses for £10 is a great offer and great value for money
We dined at la garrigue with a top table special offer, 2 courses for £19. This was excellent value as unlike many special offers the menu was not restricted. The food was very good quality, the twice baked souffle starter notable. The service was good and appropriately friendli although the restaurant was very quiet. The ladies toilets with their "saloon" doors interesting! Overall I would recommend a trip to La Garrigue for the food.
I've been to La Garrigue's Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh restaurant a few times now. The food is absolutely gorgeous, and the staff are lovely. As a starter, I had baked goats cheese with almonds, beetroot dressing. This was an unusual, but winning, combination. My main course was slow cooked check of beef in red wine sauce with spinach, tomatoes, olives and pasta gratin. It was as awesome as it sounds! I'll definitely go back - it's now firmly in my top three restaurants in Edinburgh.
We had a very enjoyable lunch yesterday in La Garrigue, Jeffrey Street,Edinburgh. 2 courses for £10.00 was good value and would certainly recommend it.
Booked £10 Lunch deal at La Garrigue Jeffery Street. Though was given Menu with £12.50 offer. Seemed churlish to complain, so paid this price! My salad was very fresh & great flavours. Had Coley with squid for main, a lot of spices that weren't really to my taste. My partner had pheasant, which was enjoyed, and Lamb with vegetables, very tender. Nice atmosphere, and cheerful service. Would visit again.
La Garrigue Edinburgh.
Good service, pleasant atmosphere. Food tasty but i had an upset stomach afterwards - not sure why (i had the cassoulet). Lovely olive bread.
Third visit, each one better than the last !
La Garrigue, Edinburgh. Overpriced and a bit bland. Exception was beef.
Return visit to La Garrique, Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh.
Delicious, simple French cooking at a very reasonable price and delightful service. Be sure to try the saffron gin and a pouse rapier.
La Garrique, Edinburgh has a great atmosphere. Very reasonable lunch menu.
Booked La garrigue for a Saturday lunch time treat as so many folk had been banging on about the place for years but it was a little disappointing. Husbands meal was pleasant enough but lacked seasoning and the fish I ordered smelt quite wiffy with an under seasoned sauce. I left 2 thirds of it and the sourly french waiter asked if I enjoyed my meal but his manner didn't make me feel like tackling the issue.Whole experience rather underwhelming and there are better french bistros in Edinburgh.
La Garrigue, Edinburgh
This place has been recommended by several people, but I'd never been.
Four of us had lunch, using the special offer. Everything was first rate. Its quality southern French food with no great fuss or pretension. The staff are friendly & familiar with the fare. The pace is relaxed and setting very comfortable.
A great restaurant for a very good yet unpreposing meal. An easy recommendation.
La Garrigue in Eyre Place has wonderful food and an excellent 2 course lunch for £8.50.
La Garrigue again provided an excellent dinner accompanied by a superb bottle of Minervois.My only regret was the cassoulet was finished by the time we arrived. This is regional cooking at its best.
At La Garrigue, Edinburgh, the food is fine but lacks finesse.
It's French bistro but not comparative to a restaurant on the continent i.e. my pork belly was slightly dry yet the fat was thick and under rendered. The artichokes a little raw. Cinnamon on the creme brûlée an unwelcome addition. The tuile childishly crude undercooked one end over cooked the other.
The TT deal made it a little better value for money but still not great. Their wine list is excellent.
I had been to La Garrigue in Jeffrey Street once a few years ago. I decided to go back and take advantage of its January lunch offer. It did not disappoint. Excellent food and for very good price. Would highly recommend.
La Garrigue, Edinburgh Very pleasant evening. Food very good.
Lovely small authentic French resturant with a good atmosphere, great service and above all tasty food. Certainly a great place to go to sample country French cuisine, whether this be for lunch, dinner with freinds or for a romantic meal. I will certainly be going back again.
First time to La Garrigue, and we will definitely be back. The Christmas menu was fantastic, the beef cheeks beautifully tender. The turkey was very nice although a little dry. The cheeseboard was excellent and the chocolate terrine delicious. Ambience was typical French bistro and the service attentive yet unobtrusive. Have been menaing to come here for years, and now I understand the rave reviews.
We love the food in La Garrigue, Edinburgh and this was our second trip for my husband's birthday. The food is superb but with wine it is a little pricey, but a lovely treat and the food is appropriately priced. There were a couple of festive menu's online which were quite a lot cheaper than the a la carte menu and it put a damper on our night that it was a bit of an effort to get the other menu's to look at. We will still go back as we do enjoy the food.
Very atmospheric and great service! I have always loved the place - and food rather yummy too!
La Garrigue, 31 Jeffrey Street Edinburgh is an exceptionally charming jewel of an intimate, classically French restaurant in the heart of Edinburgh. The set price Chrtmas menu was excelllent value for money which set a a significant challenge to select from-it all looked delicious. the food was quite excellent, the wine was a little expensive, the service immaculate.
Lovely atmosphere.Food delicious.Service attentive.
Once again, a great meal and good service !
The food in La Garrigue in Jeffrey St was very good but I was disappointed in the cassoulet as some of my beans were undercooked. Everything else was delicious and well presented. The only down side to my meal were the staff. They were more inattentive than we would normally expect and generally very sullen.
We ate in La Garrigue in Jeffrey st in Edinburgh. We were seated in what amounted to be a corridor with staff rushing to and fro which did not make for a relaxing evening, The starters were alright. The mains were what let the evening down unfortunately. Two of the party orderd the coley and it really was awful with a burnt garlic sauce and a horrid texture to the fish. Anothere ordered Pigeon and it was very overdone and the last ordered cassoulet in which the butter-beans were hard as rocks.
La Garrigue lived up to its well-deserved reputation and the experience was enhanced by the charming head waiter who took time to welcome and chat to all the diners present. The food was excellent - a real taste of France.
Reading previous reviews we expected this to be a real treat for a Saturday lunch. La Garrigue in Jeffrey Street Edinburgh certainly lived up to its reputation. Moreover at £12.50 for a set two course lunch it represents excellent value too. The sea bream and slow cooked beef in red wine main courses were superb, only surpassed by the dessert of a tangy lemon tart complemented by a scoop of orange ice cream. Magnifiques!.
Next time we venture to Edinburgh we aim to try dinner here
A atmospheric french restaurant. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food lovely and excellent value.
Excellant service and meal. Great value for money.
La Garrigue, 31 Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh. Went for my birthday dinner and the food and wine was absolutely fabulous. There was a very good choice on the menu and everything seemed delicious. I settled for potted rabbit for starter, whole roasted partridge for main and cheese for dessert. Most delightful meal I've had in ages. The wine list was very impressive too for those wine buddies out there!
Enjoyable and pleasant atmosphere
Great food and a large selection of wine and other drinks. It took ages to decide what to eat as everything was tempting. Can't wait to go back.
La Garrigue, Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh is not as good as the newly opened sister Bistro in Leith. The menu said roast lamb and raost potatoes and what we got was lamb casserole and mashed potatoes. No apology and no offer to change the dish. Very disappointing.
We arrived at La Garrigue Edinburgh just as the heavens opened and we were happy to receive the warm greetings of the all French staff.
Service was efficient and the food was very good and we throughly enjoyed going a la Francais for the evening
