The Irish-born actor has been in the Capital filming Will Ferrell's new Netflix comedy Eurovision.
The post reads: "Ah. We've been expecting you Mr. Bond. You never know who might drop into @theoxfordbar1 @piercebrosnan meets our own Miss Moneypenny @thirsty89570258 yesterday."
It is understood the picture was taken on Monday.
The Oxford Bar is one of Edinburgh's most renowned watering holes, and attracts hundreds of Inspector Rebus fans each week thanks to its regular appearances in Ian Rankin's novels.
Brosnan was also pictured last week with staff at a city hairdressing salon where his wife was getting a haircut.
The Eurovision film follows the journey of two Icelandic musicians taking part in the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest which was held in the Capital.

Pierce Brosnan Rescues Fallen Girl While on Vacay with Keely Shay Smith By Lesley Garcia - October 19, 2019
Pierce Brosnan jumped into hero mode in the middle of a vacation in Portofino with wife Keely Shaye Smith when a young girl fell and he came to her rescue.
The former 007 actor ran over to the little girl’s side and helped her get back on her feet after she fell backward on her seat to the appreciation of her family at the table—who although very grateful seemed completely unaware that James Bond had just come to their rescue.
After his heroic act, Brosnan went back to vacationing with his wife of 26 years and enjoying the rest of his well-deserved relaxing day in Italy.
