Just a short walk from Haymarket train station, First Coast is a local, independent neighbourhood restaurant. Over the past 11 years we’ve built a strong reputation for serving top quality modern Scottish food at reasonable prices.
Named after a small village in Wester Ross, where the owner has fond memories of eating brilliant Scottish produce during his childhood holidays, First Coast’s menu has something for everyone. Fresh fish is delivered daily, we offer a good range of tasty vegetarian options, J Gilmour butchers supply us with quality Aberdeen Angus steak, and we also make our own haggis

    This was an amazing meal- the place is relaxed and casual, the food is top notch. We shared a starter of mussels- honestly the best mussels either of us has ever had. My husband got the monkfish for his main- it tasted like lobster and the cauliflower either it was phenomenal. I had the coley in bouillabaisse- again with the mussels. The bread to sop up all the brothy goodness was quite good. Sturdy enough to do the job. The service was spot on. They kept an eye on us but were not intrusive. The noise was minimal which is a refreshing change from restaurants in the US. We were sadly too full for dessert but they looked to be delicious.

    Very friendly staff, great food (smoked salmon, haggis, sea bass, steak, sticky toffee pudding, ice cream). Good selection of wines and beers.

    We had a lovely meal. The duck breast was perfectly cooked and tender and the scallops were wonderful as well. The service was attentive and prompt.

    I have been to First Coast several times and was never disappoimted. It was a luxury to be there on a Monday when it was relatively quiet. The haggis starter was especially good, but other food also fine.
