“The hearty food and wine of the Languedoc” dominate the menu at Jean-Michel Gauffre’s “enjoyable” Old Town stalwart, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year and remains “a fine place to dine”. There’s also a “huge wine list, mainly from southern France with many rare and unusual bottles from Languedoc and Roussillon”.

“I love traditional southwest French cuisine, and this is the real deal!”. Jean-Michel Gauffre’s “friendly” Old Town stalwart is “still true to its roots”, serving “great recipes” including a signature cassoulet. “The extensive wine list has Languedoc and Roussillon bottles by the score that you never see in Britain”.

“The Auld Alliance at its best!”; “Jean-Michel Gauffre provides an attractive menu of characteristic dishes of south-west France” (“hearty rather than elegant”), “with a fascinating list of wines from the region”, and a good dose of “charm”, at his bustling “Old Town stalwart”, behind Waverley Station – “one of the main reasons for my annual visit to the Edinburgh Fringe!”
