I came here for dinner with my 18 year old son. It was the perfect choice. Both the interior and the friendly welcoming staff contributed to a lovely ambience. The food was delicious and we felt neither rushed nor unattended at any time. Thank you to We will definitely book again on our next trip to Edinburgh.

We loved our meal. The service was faultless and the staff answered any questions we had about the menu accurately. A great venue which had a homely feeling due to the various size of rooms. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Just had another amazing meal and evening in First Coast. Been here numerous times now and each time a different and equally delicious menu. Staff are very friendly and really accommodating. My daughter wanted a dessert from the lunch menu and though we were there in the evening it was not a problem. Highly recommend this restaurant. One of Edinburgh’s hidden gems!
