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.

16 years and counting! First Coast never fails to impress. Always interesting choices and so well executed. Here's to the next visit.
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.
The Venison Suet Pudding was outstanding & up to the very high standard that the First Coast team consistently maintain.

An excellent experience. I had the Thai Chicken Salad and it was divine. Very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend.
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!
