First time eating at Baba and it was fantastic, food delicious with lots of interesting dishes. We are planning our return already.
Food was fantastic. There was a dog with diners which was surprising but it also barked a lot which did not make for a pleasant dining experience as it should have been.
We were a party of four, dining at BABA for the first time, and were really impressed. All the food was delicious: fresh, full of flavour, evocative of the Lebanese tradition. The service was fabulous, too, efficient and friendly. The music was a tad loud for us but after the isolation of lockdown we all enjoyed the lively ambience. Will definitely return.
Had a great meal and the staff were great!
Perfect, healthy, flavorful, inspired…flawless…
Nice food. Small plates but filling. Stylish decor.
We enjoyed an excellent Dinner! The Food and Drinks were very good! Highly recommended!
Food was fantastic. Service was excellent. We had lovely bottle of Rose wine. I cannot wait to go back
Wow what a fab eve for husbands birthday. Food superb. Service excellent. Ask to go in turquoise dining room - simply stunning
Highly recommend, food was amazing. Atmosphere and design of the restaurant was lovely. Good choice of wine & their own personal swing on cocktails, but able to make most of what you ask. Lovely separate bar area if you are not interest in eating.
Very reasonable for the quality of food.
Thank you for a wonderful meal, everything was absolutely terrific. From the cocktails to the beautiful venue we loved every part of our visit and have booked in for our annual Edinburgh Christmas shopping trip.
Have the haggis merguez yum
Amazing food, been here a few times now and never disappointed. Friendly staff.
Delicious food in a cosy but vibrant setting. The service is fantastic, the staff are really helpful - especially when it's hard to choose between all the amazing dishes! Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting.
Excellent service and delicious food. We will be back!
We really enjoyed our meal (a late lunch) a particular highlight was the labneh and the whole sea bass. I would say that it can get quite expensive once you add delicious sides and mezze but the quality of the food is excellent so we felt it was worth the cost.
Great selection, lovely small fish style eating and all dishes we got were delicious!
First off the food is amazing. No issues there, menu well explained by staff and came in good time.
However this restaurant lets itself down badly with seating. I booked online and asked for the best available table, when we got there we were sat in a thoroughfare room off the main restaurant. The seats were soft so it was like I was sitting on the floor and we were up against a solid wall to my immediate right which turned out to be the kitchen.
With spaces throughout we identified another table and asked to sit there. This had to be checked. Then is was deemed permissible!
We were still however in an area where the hotel guest came and went as this restaurant is within a hotel complex. We saw guests in robes walking by from the spa, a group of golfers with clubs walked past our table to return to their room and various other comings and goings. When they have a specific restaurant with empty tables this was all unnecessary and a bit weird!
We didnt get their best available table and my advice when booking here is to specify you want to eat in the restaurant, not the foyer area. The food was exceptional though but the wine extremely pricey even for faux Edinburgh prices (£9.10) for a small Malborough SB for example is extortionate.
We would eat there again but only if i was certain we would be in the main restaurant area.
Fantastic - great host and waitress from Australia
Will be back
Amazing food, each dish was fantastic. A real explosion of flavours.
Great food, friendly staff, good service and very reasonably priced.
First visit, will definitely be back.
The food was amazing!
Fantastic place to eat. Love the decor and library and being dog friendly was a huge bonus. Food was out of this world. Will be back
Delicious food. Service staff not particularly engaged.
Really great food, 36 £ pp including tip for three dishes each shared between five plus a bottle of wine and multiple beers
Food was delicious, as were the cocktails. Service was also great, and allergies didn’t seem to be a problem. I had heaps of choice being gluten free, and most dishes with nuts could have them removed! We went at 4.30pm and the ambience was really lovely.
Would absolutely recommend. Delicious food, cosy atmosphere, and attentive staff. Great value for money.
Great Lebanese restaurant with beautiful decor. Variety of meat and veggie dishes that are all tasty. Good for sharing plates.
Lovely light lunch after a great spa morning. Friendly helpful staff even changing our booking to an earlier time slot .
Delightful food of a very high standard, real cooking. I am rarely impressed and usually leave restaurants disappointed. The only fault I could find was that the actual plates were too small, but who cares when the food is so good. Great value for money.
Fabulous food and ambience. Experience surpassed expectation. Highly recommended
Delicious food and portions were very generous. Service was very good.
The waitress kept our change on top of a service charge without asking/bothering to bring it back to the table. When I asked for the change ,she short changed me 'because they didn't have change due to Covid-19'.
No apology and no response from the manager.
The vegetarian dishes we had were excellent.
I think the price of wine was very expensive.
Amazing food. V noisy with not v friendly staff. But food is outstanding. Would like if the staff wear masks properly
Excellent food service and evening. We will return.
An explosion of flavours and the slow cooked lamb is a must!
Baba never fails to deliver. Another wonderful meal, our table groaned with practically everything on the menu, as all so delicious and so hard to say no. A fabulous celebration meal to mark our sons graduation. Of course we will be back .
Lived up to our high hopes! Great service and very tasty food. Good for sharing and enjoying together.
