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.
Great service. Really enjoyed the food.
Another of many visits I have made to First Coast over a number of years. The food is top quality and consistently so.The price represents great value. I had the steak and my friend had coley all perfectly cooked. Puddings were creamy rice pudding and ice cream with chocolate sauce and homemade honeycomb topping which was divine. The staff make First Coast a lovely and relaxing place to be. I have eaten in many places in Edinburgh and First Coast is my favourite for all of the reasons mentioned.
An excellent meal in great surroundings and with good service.
Excellent as always, great attention to detail and good veggie options on the Set menu which is great value.
Enjoyed our meal very much. Have been a couple of at lunch time but this was the first time we had been in the evening. The food was delicious, service excellent. Will definitely return
Another wonderful dinner at First Coast. The early evening set menu is great value for money & the food is beautiful. Our server was great, very friendly & professional (young female, long dark hair, sorry didn't get name). Thanks!
First Coast is superb, the food delicious, the athmospere relax and the service great and very friendly !! They even wanted to stay open later if we would have been delayed coming all the way from Orkney!! PS First Coast is also child-friendly!
We were taking Australian friends out for dinner and they absolutely loved the food.
It is at least 6 years since I have been to First Coast, and now I am wondering why. The food was amazing - beautiful aubergine starter, so full of flavour, and the pork belly was just perfect. All the other guests felt the same about the food - with the only negative being that one friend felt her chips were slightly too dry, but she loved the steak. I have already recommended to friends, we will be back soon.
Lovely meal, relaxed friendly restaurant with great food.
Excellent would highly recommend.
First class. First time for dinner but had been 3 times in the recent past for lunch. Very good each time.
Brilliant as usual!
Service was very friendly but really slow. Our server was not well versed on the menu. We asked if the olives on the starters were black or green and she had to go find out. One of our group asked what black garlic sauce was and she didn’t know nor did she offer to find out on that question. Appetizers were offered several times and we discussed if it was because the kitchen was slow. The main courses did take quite a while but when they arrived, it was delicious.
Food was excellent and staff were super attentive and friendly. Will be back
Went here for a graduation meal for my daughter - they actually do a graduation menu which 4 of our party had and the others went a la carte . From start to finish the service was excellent - friendly and professional - as was the food . We all had different dishes - vegetarian , fish , steak - all lovely . Thank you for a great finish to our day .
Great food and service. Thank you
Certainly worth a visit
I go to First Coast most weeks
The food was lovely and there was a good choice on the early evening dinner menu. Service was friendly and efficient. Great value too.
Yet again another great visit to First Coast, first we have been for lunch and certainly won’t be our last.
The food was very good and, at lunchtime, amazing value for money. There's a good choice for vegetarians too. Looking forward to dinner there very soon.
Excellent food, nice environment (as always) - a real treat Surprised by bill , lower than expected, I think as wine is reasonably priced (and good !)
Absolutely fantastic food, wonderful staff and welcoming, relaxing and "homily" atmosphere
