The food was very delicious. From the complimentary bread to the dessert, everything was really enjoyable. Service was fantastic. Servers were very friendly and explained very well the public health system in place in the restaurant. The only thing is that I hoped the portion was a bit bigger. But overall I really enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. Will definitely come again.

An excellent restaurant where I have eaten on quite a number of occasions. Always interesting food, well presented, excellent friendly service. The value is excellent given the quality of the food.

First meal out since lockdown! Was a bit apprehensive but there was nothing to worry about! Everything was very well organised and it was such a pleasure to be out and enjoy the experience and of course the delicious food! 10/10 all round!

Excellent and inventive food, fantastic value for money. I would just say that the service was just a little too fast, it didn't give us time to a) drink more (!); b) have a "rest" between dishes.

'Atmosphere' only rated so low due to the fact we were the only people dining - obviously due to the current Covid19 situation.We are regulars here so are aware this is not usual. Everything else first class. Come on folks - get back out there!

We had a great dinner at First Coast on Saturday night. We were so impressed with all that they had done to make us safe during these crazy times of social distancing. I had been nervous to eat out but felt so relieved bu the hadn't sanitising stations, obviously rigorous cleaning regime and he care given to spreading customers around the restaurant. Would highly recommend. Also the food was delicious and service fantastic - as always!

I only mark this down on atmosphere due to covid restrictions because entering a space with no cutlery on the tables feels a little like a canteen. Apart from that this remains a great experience with friendly staff and superb food. And candle light helps!
