    An outstanding meal and great services. Authentically French and a great wine list this small intimate restaurant is a real gem. Just off the Royal Mile it is well worth seeking out. A small but high quality menu is surpassed by the quality of the food. Add to that attentive and friendly service this is a real find.

    I have been going to this restaurant for a number of years. This time my wife and I went, and she raved about her cheese soufflé. My sense of a bistro in France is a restaurant that does french cuisine, and a good bistro as a restaurant that does traditional dishes exceptionally well. This is La Garrigue. It is not a fusion restaurant, and to me it is the better for it. You should go!

    Genuinely lovely food in a very well established and highly rated restaurant. Alas, the waiter feels he doesn't need to write down, remember or clarify what customers actually order, so when the second incorrect starter arrived, I gave up and ate it anyway. Very tasty, but not the pigeon salad I had originally ordered. Twice. To be fair, they omitted any charge for this, so I got a tasty incorrect starter for free. Mains arrived correctly and the second waiter was very good-humoured about it all, sharing a wee joke about the main being wrong too...

    The restaurant was particularly good at confirming my reservation in advance. It had been recommended by a friend and fully lived up to expectations. We all had the set lunch menu, which was delicious. Service was faultless and staff were pleasant. Perhaps a little noisy for three elderly ladies trying to participate in conversation but only to be expected in a lively restaurant. Overall, a very good experience.

    The food was outstanding. Very tasteful and very well served. The wine was of real good quality and accompanied the food adequately, The service was really good from the moment that we entered till we left the restaurant. The waitress was very patient and really polite and with a very big smile, which makes you feel welcome and at ease. The decor of the restaurant was very cosy and released a very friendly and warm atmosphere. La Garrigue is not cheap, but definitely it worths the money that you give. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and I believe that is a restaurant were you can go for multiple occasions, like birthday celebrations, anniversary celebrations, etc. La Garrigue has also some tables with a very good view of the Cartoon Hill. I will most definitely go again to eat with my wife there or friends, since it is a really good restaurant with excellent service, excellent food and very friendly staff

    It was my first time eating at the restaurant and it did not disappoint. My grandma who was visiting from London thoroughly enjoyed the meal. In particular, the high quality ingredients used to produce the starters, mains and desserts were appreciated. I will definitely be visiting again.

    Lovely as always, one of Edinburgh's most reliable restaurants. I've been going for many years now and it's always good. This time we had courgette soup, perfectly cooked sea bass for me /lemon sole for my guest and to finish nicely presented, classic creme brulee no added flavours, just as it should be.

    Unfortunately the table next to us had a very loud person but otherwise the ambiance was fairly quiet. The chef could have checked his seasoning a bit more for us..but better to be under seasoned than over! Staff were very friendly and accommodating.
