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 15 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.
The food was delicious - exactly as described - fresh Scottish produce cooked and presented in various ethnic styles (Italian and Thai for our main course choices). Service was impeccable. Portion sizes were suitable for lunchtime. If I had to pick out one small negative, I was not really tempted by any of the starter choices on the lunch menu, so paid a little extra for some marinated olives to share.
Thanks a lot, it was perfect!!
up to its normal high standard best value for money in edinburgh
Great lunch before Murrayfield. Food was great and good value.
Six of us booked for lunch on Rugby international day. Every table full, and lots of extra drinks orders!! Nice choices on menu. Thai fishcake starter and our beef and squash curries excellent. Friendly and efficient staff. Good value - even with the wine. Why would you go anywhere else?
Lovely evening and discrete, attentive service. Thank you
I'm a regular visitor to First Coast and this time popped in for a business lunch with a new colleague. Good choice of food and great service as always.
Another excellent lunch , would recommend this lovely bistro
The beetroot curry is a dish my husband will be talking about for a very long time, pure bliss. O would say the same for sticky pudding dessert, really good. Keep up the quality food and interesting recipes.
My second visit to First Coast and I thought the menu choice was better this time. Both visits have been on rugby days, where the restaurant is keen to get diners in and out again within a two hour window. I’d like to try a meal when it isn’t quite so rushed. Good food and friendly attentive staff.
Lovely restaurant with good service which was nice and relaxed. Great choice of different and unusual dishes
Nice night. Great food and very helpful staff.
I love a place that keeps things simple. A small menu that covered all the bases. Great food and friendly service.
Excellent food, fresh, delicious and beautifully presented.
Family Celebration for my husband 60th and we had great experience and everyone enjoyed their meals. Faultless
Another excellent meal - first class food at a good price. The beetroot and apple soup was the best soup that I've had in a while - souperb! Thanks.
We enjoyed exposure to new dishes in tbe Indian Vegan menu and not having to choose!
Had the early evening menu which was great value. Lovely table beside a warm fire on a very cold night. Service was excellent and we were not rushed out of the door which happens in many restaurants.
Fantastic meal and service Thank you all for a nice evening
An excellent (Indian) regional evening. What skill in making vegan cuisine so tasty
Very enjoyable night with good food in a very relaxing atmosphere, close to Haymarket Station.
Lovely meal with wonderful service. Would definitely go again.
The food is absolutely amazing. Every dish is really well thoughthrough and value for money is great. It was a little bit cold by the window, that’s the only reason why I didn’t give 5 out of 5 for atmosphere.
Great night with great food and wine!
High quality meal and service. A short walk from Haymarket station and the west end.
