Always enjoy eating at First Coast. A couple of years since we have been but still the same combination of high quality and value. The last twice we have visited we have been a bit mystified by being allocated tables in corridors or next to doors when there were plenty other better located tables so with so many peaceful well located tables asking people to sit in the worst locations always mystifies but just a small irritation.

A most pleasant experience for our friends and ourselves. Our friends appreciated the quiet ambience of the place and the attention to detail in the presentation of the food.

I ordered 'ragu and crispy polenta' - no mention that the dish contained cheese which meant that I couldn't eat it. Suggest you improve listing of your ingredients.

Lovely restaurant only complaint is that food came out too quickly making a rushed meal when would have enjoyed a slower paced meal. That said we were certainly not made to feel unwelcome or that we couldn’t remain at the restaurant for as long as we liked,

We came here with a booking 15 which turned quite complicated when a few colleagues didn't turn up and a couple of extras did (that hadn't pre booked the meal). The waiting staff were super accommodating and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious - I have received so many compliments on the restaurant choice and been told so many times how much they all enjoyed their meals. Thank you so much! Will be recommending to my friends in Edinburgh!

Good is always full of flavour and well cooked. Menu isn't huge but what they do they do well and there's always something a bit different. Love it.

First Coast is always a great experience. Food is just a little bit different from the norm, and the home made bread rolls are excellent!
