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 16 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 vegan menu was very good.
We had dinner at the First Coast restaurant with a friend of ours visiting the city and it was a very enjoyable evening. The food was delicious and full of flavour with plenty of choice on the menu. We had a chat with the staff about their themed nights and it seems that it gives them a way to try out new recipes and keep some of them going on the menu. We enjoyed some Corsican dishes visiting the menu and tasted matched wine. We are definitely going to visit again and bring some friends with us.
Quality food in a relaxed environment. A hidden gem!
Superb meal as usual, stunning flavour combinations. Friendly & attentive service, warm atmosphere
This is consistently the best restaurant on Edinburgh. The food is always delicious, the atmosphere is always relaxed, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, I wish it was closer to our home but that's its only fault!
We recently had a delicious three course lunch here. Fantastic, friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere and did not feel rushed to leave. We were all happy we decided to have a dessert wine with our dessert too. We all left feeling happy and full.
Excellent meal, relaxing surroundings. The background music was a tad too loud.
Food was delicious with plenty choice. Set menu was great value for money. Wine reasonably priced. Waiting staff were exceptionally helpful. Nice cheery atmosphere for a cold winters night. We will be back soon!
Well worth the short walk from Haymarket. Good food with some interesting variations on the normal staples.
First Coast is simply outstanding - great food, kind and accommodating staff, fantastic front of house, amazing value for money and always reliable. What really sets this restaurant apart is the quality of the food - clever use of herbs and spices goes to create memorable and very special plates of beautifully presented food.
My first visit and thoroughly enjoyed our meal, great fresh tastes, friendly and knowledgeable service, will definitely return.
First class vas always. A little different!
Very friendly and helpful
first visit and very impressed
Visited on very wet and windy night so it was very quiet. Food was excellent.
We absolutely loved our meals. Everything was first class.
Lovely early evening supper with friends. Great food and value for money. Not been for a while but will definitely be back
Fabulous service, amazing food and great atmosphere. Cannot fault it at all and my favourite piece of heaven. Thanks 'First Coast' for providing such a super place
From arriving to leaving we were made welcome. So helpful with GF Friend explaining menu advising what she could have to eat Food was lovely, very tasty and fresh
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal - the menu was varied. Our chosen dishes were well cooked and beautifully presented- staff were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.
Our meal was, as usual, top notch. I've eaten at FC many times & the quality of the food has never disappointed. Would recommend FC in a heartbeat.
Great food and service as always
We always have a wonderful time at our favourite Edinburgh restaurant - wonderful staff, food and atmosphere.
Lovely, tasty food and good value for money. A very relaxing evening
