About First Coast
Just a short walk from Haymarket train station, First Coast is quality neighbourhood bistro named after a small village in Wester Ross, and over the past 14 years we’ve built a strong reputation for serving top quality modern Scottish food at reasonable prices in a relaxed environment.
With ingredients sourced as locally as possible, our chefs focus on using bold flavours and unfussy presentation to create fresh, tasty, homemade food while still incorporating flavours from around the world. We use the best of Scottish produce, but in an original and interesting way.
Our new small plates menu is now available every Saturday lunch.
Great tasting fresh food served in a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely be back to try more of the varied menu.
As ever great food and great service is good atmosphere
Our 'go to' lunch venue for a work outing. The food is consistently good and the service can't be faulted.
Staff are friendly and helpful, food is delicious and imaginative. Thank you for a lovely Small Plates lunch!
We greatly enjoyed our meal on Saturday. Menu was adventurous without being over-contrived. Mussels and the Moroccan platter were especially good. Thank you all.
A gem of a restaurant.
6 of us on a week end to Edinburgh dined at First Coast. The food was outstanding and I would highly recommend your restaurant
Our first visit. Excellent food at a great value price on the early evening menu. Service friendly and attentive. We will be back. Thanks for a great evening.
Just a great first visit to First Coast. Everyone of our group of six enjoyed their meal. Wonderful flavours ! Wouldnt hesitate to return. Efficient service , unpretentious ....just perfect.
The food was lovely, as always, and service came with a smile. This is my favourite restaurant and as long as you keep up the excellent standards I'll keep coming.
Tasty, interesting and different food as always. First class dining experience once more!
Excellent vegetarian selection. Some of the best vegetarian food we have eaten.
We have had a number of meals at First Coast over the years and have never been disappointed. We have had positive feedback from those we have recommended you to.. Really enjoyed the Hunan night!
super convenient lunch venue, food excellent.
Absolutely brilliant - regularly take business colleagues to the restaurant. Food and service always first class.
Very good value!
Lovely lunch experience. Super pigeon breast and black pudding.
Food was lovely. Service was friendly but tailed off after food. I like coffee after my meal but we were ignored after dessert andI had to go and ask for it. Also I know it is old-fashioned but I don't like waiting staff wearing jeans-to me it denotes disrespect to the customer.
Hunan Night was excellent - lovely variety of flavours, consistently high quality and the best octopus I have ever eaten. Thank you.
Always enjoy First Coast - great food!
Yet another excellent dining experience. Very good food at reasonable prices and waited on by excellent staff. Thanks
consistently excellent in all areas
Was at the Tuscany night ,each course was a triumph Will definitely be back again soon
Very good quality food. Would definitely recommend and would go back
The food was delicious and you were very accommodating as one of our party asked for a starter as a main. Couple of minor issues - it was quite chilly in the restaurant and another group kept their coats on. Also we asked for hot milk for coffee and it wasn’t but soon sorted. Will definitely be back.
