La GarrigueLa Garrigue

French | The Royal Mile, Edinburgh

This was not my first visit and certainly will not be my last. La Garrigue is one of those gems outside of France where you can experience the Gallic flavours & combinations "comme ta mère cuisinait". With an exceptional hand-picked wine-list to compliment every dish...what's not to like? The ambience is very relaxed, but still incorporating high standards, yet minus the linen. Portion sizes are ideally sized to allow a three-course meal to be experienced without the latter struggle. Taking the cuisine style and price together, this is the type of place that is more for the 'special' occasion than an everyday bistro dash. But the prices are very fair for the standard presented. Well worth a visit for those looking for something well thought about and delivered by the most charming & helpful staff. More

The Queens Arms - EdinburghThe Queens Arms - Edinburgh
$$$$
Scottish | New Town, Edinburgh

The Queens Arms has been an Edinburgh fixture for many years; the latest incarnation finds it reborn as a gastropub, although long-time customers will be pleased to know that the renovation has preserved the layout and most of the original features. This new look is charming customers and critics alike – since re-opening they scooped Best Gastropub at the 2010 DRAM (Drinks Retailing and Marketing) Awards. It's no wonder with the food they have on offer – Scottish classics, really, but with a modern twist. It's not only the food that customers are praising though – The Queens Arms also boasts friendly and efficient service and a solid offering of whiskies, cocktails and wine and beer (including several real ales).

Under 18's are not admitted after 8:00pm.More
