About La Garrigue

Popular French restaurant in Edinburgh Old Town

La Garrigue is a popular French restaurant on Jeffrey Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town. A cosy and comfortable space with fine views to Calton Hill, it features Tim Steadman’s trademark chunky furniture. Long a favourite with lovers of French food in Edinburgh, La Garrigue shot to national prominence when it featured on Ramsay’s Best Restaurants. As well as happy customers, La Garrigue attracts other plaudits including two AA rosettes and awards for its wine list.

Rustic dishes from Languedoc

The seasonally changing menus at La Garrigue reflect the cuisine of south west France where the owner grew up. Think along the lines of confit duck legs, Red Gurnard with a black olive tapenade and the classic Castelnaudary cassoulet – packed with pork, lamb, duck confit, Toulouse sausage and lingot beans. Lighter options might be the pear, Roquefort and walnut salad or the Mediterranean fish soup served with rouillé and croutons. Put simply, if you want a taste of the Languedoc in Edinburgh then La Garrigue should be top of your list.
