Where do i start ? The range of drinks was appalling and expensive- the staff clearly didnt have a clue either (one confused white beer with lager) staff when confronted by complaints had a "i only work here" attitude . The food was overpriced and nothing startling.
Shame really because its actually quite an attractive bar , if short on seating . very dissapointing.

Worst pub food I have every had the misfortune to consume. Overpriced as well. Especially avoid the 'Big Cheese' burger which = boiled burger with one small slice of processed cheese.

As a wheelchair user I visit Bar Alba on a regular basis with a fellow wheelchair user friend. It is one of the few pubs which accommodates all our needs re access and having a wheelchair accessible toilet that has been designed with wheelchair usrs in mind. All this contributes to an enjoyable night out.

Whoever owns this hole must take a long hard look at themselve. The bar is one of the best looking bars in the area but why they allow the worst people in the area into it is beyond me. It is always full of drunks. Change your customer base and you will get busier

Excellent open bar in the popular grassmarket. Quality drinks and brilliant food, but the staff make the pub. A++

This place is terrible!! Everytime i have been in there, the toilets are overflowing and there are lots of drunks at the bar. The staff are friendly but i wouldnt go back if i had a choice.

i agree with the person on the previous note, came back from a stag weekend in edinburgh, lovely city fantastic time from what i remember very expensive all other pubs in the grassmarket much cheaper. and play louder music.... i hate pubs where the musics quiet. couldnt see this female rugby team anywhere........ unless they where disguised as blokes!

Came up on a stag do a couple of weeks ago. Nice bar lots of lovley ladies however what con on the drinks. Not sure if we got ripped off here but in the pub up the road we got a round for 18 for about £50 in here it was just under £65. Saying that when we come back up will probably go back, its costly but worth it.
