Eating at First Coast is one of the very best things about our trips to Edinburgh: I only wish we lived closer and could eat there more often.

First Coast is a real jewel. No visit to Edinburgh is complete without a meal at this exquisite gem on the Dalry Road. The sirloin steak which I enjoyed was superb & despite being really busy on a Saturday night during the Festival, the service was exemplary as always. Thank you First Coast, you are number one in my book! 🤗

We have dined in First Coast many times. Not sure about the small plates concept. We had three and all arrived quickly. We had to eat fast as we do not like cold food. All were adequate but slightly difficult to eat off small plate. Plenty of calories but a little disappointing. Also had Catalan bread/toast- not authentic.

Very tasty food with attentive staff who were helpful with allergies. My only tiny criticism was that the bread was white, however I didn’t say anything at the time and others in party were very happy with it. A super restaurant with well cooked tasty food.

Been to First Coast before and enjoyed it but on Sunday, it was on top form. Mackeral was wonderful. There are excellent menu options allowing you to mix amd match.
