Another of many visits I have made to First Coast over a number of years. The food is top quality and consistently so.The price represents great value. I had the steak and my friend had coley all perfectly cooked. Puddings were creamy rice pudding and ice cream with chocolate sauce and homemade honeycomb topping which was divine. The staff make First Coast a lovely and relaxing place to be. I have eaten in many places in Edinburgh and First Coast is my favourite for all of the reasons mentioned.

Another wonderful dinner at First Coast. The early evening set menu is great value for money & the food is beautiful. Our server was great, very friendly & professional (young female, long dark hair, sorry didn't get name). Thanks!

It is at least 6 years since I have been to First Coast, and now I am wondering why. The food was amazing - beautiful aubergine starter, so full of flavour, and the pork belly was just perfect. All the other guests felt the same about the food - with the only negative being that one friend felt her chips were slightly too dry, but she loved the steak. I have already recommended to friends, we will be back soon.

Service was very friendly but really slow. Our server was not well versed on the menu. We asked if the olives on the starters were black or green and she had to go find out. One of our group asked what black garlic sauce was and she didn’t know nor did she offer to find out on that question. Appetizers were offered several times and we discussed if it was because the kitchen was slow. The main courses did take quite a while but when they arrived, it was delicious.

Went here for a graduation meal for my daughter - they actually do a graduation menu which 4 of our party had and the others went a la carte . From start to finish the service was excellent - friendly and professional - as was the food . We all had different dishes - vegetarian , fish , steak - all lovely . Thank you for a great finish to our day .

The food was very good and, at lunchtime, amazing value for money. There's a good choice for vegetarians too. Looking forward to dinner there very soon.
