    I've eaten many times in La Garrigue and always had a good experience. It's one of Edinburgh's little gems. The food is always excellent - and focussed on southern France. While some dishes remain on the menu long-term, the menu is regularly updated. Good choice of wines at reasonable prices.

    Every time we have been to La Garrigue we have had a wonderful experience. Therefore on Saturday we were disappointed… My starter was mediocre, and the duck was dry and overcooked… Also the service was not as good as usual, and being in the corner, it was hard to attract attention of the staff. We will go again, but not for a while.

    This was a most enjoyable supper on a Tuesday evening. Restaurant surprisingly quiet considering we received a very warm welcome and excellent service. The restaurant represents a little part of the Pay d’Oc. Classical Languedoc cuisine with an excellent choice of accompanying wines from the region. Le soufflé au Roquefort made for an excellent starter. Enjoyed the special main dish of the day (monkfish) while others loved the cabilloud. We were restrained and did not sample the desserts but spoiled for choice. It was nice not having to compete with other tables but this restaurant needs to be better supported during the week!

    Return visit to La Garrigue. Dined early on a Tuesday evening. Quiet, with only a few other diners. Warm welcome from the waiting staff and, later on, from the owner. All dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. The Roquefort soufflé and smoked trout starters both excellent, as were the main courses of cassoulet and venison daube. Chocolate cheesecake and pear tart made the perfect desserts. Again recommended!

    We get to visit Scotland from the US, and specifically to Edinburgh 3-4 times a year. However, a visit to Edinburgh without visiting the La Garrigue would be impossible. We always do lunch there as it is conveniently close to the main station and for our friend travelling from Dundee. Yesterday, we chose from the 'January Lunch Menu' which offered choices of starter main and dessert. Wine from the Provence region of southern France is also to be looked forward to.

    The food was excellent - all well flavoured and good value. Especially liked the salad dressings - varied and interesting. The saltiness of the starter dressing complemented the goat cheese spinach and chestnut tart. Wine list very interesting - the 500ml flask is an excellent idea! Only criticism, the room was a bit cold, and the fish pie took a long time to cool down before I could eat it - my dining guest was almost finished before I could start. Will visit again!
