    We chose this restaurant for lunch having been here before, we arrived early but were quickly shown to our table. We ordered two glasses of Kir which were lovely, not always the case in some places, for our starters we ordered the scallops and the vol au vent, both were delicious. Our mains arrived very quickly after our starters and to be honest, we felt a little rushed this time. However, the salmon filet and La Lotte, a monkfish casserole were superb, really tasty and good portions. For dessert we chose the Tarte Tatin and the chocolate mousse which were also excellent. They have a varied wine list, good value and with an interesting selection, I chose the Domain de L’Hortus white, delicious. Overall this is a fantastic restaurant serving delicious food and with polite, efficient service. Highly recommended but make sure you reserve a table as it is very popular, for good reason.

    A French Bistro style restaurant with a south of France ambiance. Service was good and not too overly attentive. Wine menu is difficult to read though they do have reading glasses to borrow which aids the task considerably. The Arrogant Frog offerings are good value The food was excellent I would recommend the Roquefort soufflé.

    We both had a starter of scallops followed by pheasant. Both are tricky to cook, but they were perfect. This was the best restaurant meal we'd had for quite a while, and the service was pleasant.

    Although we enjoyed our lunch at La Garrigue very much, the set lunch menu was very limited and we did not consider the main course we chose (turkey leg) to be anything special. However, it was very good value for money and the service, as always, was excellent. We will certainly go back.

    Lovely to be back at La Garrigue for an early dinner. The artisan bread to start and the desserts were particularly good, but it was all lovely. Very quiet, nice service with walnut wine recommended to accompany the desserts...delicious. Lovely artworks and Tim Stead tables and chairs make this a very special place to eat out in. So pleased the decor hadn't changed! We look forward to our next visit!
