We were surprised how good the food was. The Restaurant and outdoor area has had a refurb since COVID and it looks great. The food and service was excellent.

Had late full breakfast, the quality of food was exceptional, the service attentive but unobtrusive, everything about Coast is top class. Do yourself a favour book a table and enjoy. The outside garden looked great and in the warm sunshine is a sun trap

Great service and fabulous food. We both had scampi and chips and it was delicious. Cooked perfectly and served with small salad ,garden peas and their own tartare sauce. Crispy chips freshly cooked..

We showed up without booking for breakfast on a Saturday morning with 2 dogs. We were warmly welcomed and allowed to sit out in the rear garden. Great weather made it a delightful suntrap with plenty of shade for a family brunch. Lovely to be...able to eat breakfast outside on a sunny day and have an Irish breakfast. Tasty ulster fry and good hospitality.More

Have always liked Coast, but there were a few issues with our evening. 1. We had pre-ordered our meals, so why didn't all of them arrive at roughly the same time? 2. This issue was worse with main courses ( which were fine) arriving but...side dishes appeared in a random manner ( & in a couple of cases, after the main was eaten)!! Credit must be given to the one waitress (the mature lady) who was doing 90% of the work and in a pleasant & efficient manner - what a pity the others were too busy enjoying themselves ( in 2 cases, dancing & laughing at full volume) to contribute. Come on guys you can (& need to) do better than this.More

We visited Coast last year a few times when visiting our son who lives in Holywood, through Boris' eat out to help out. We went back to Holywood last week for the 1st time in 10 months to visit our boy. Its coming upto our...silver wedding anniversary so our son took us for a treat. Yet again didn't fail to please, there had been a misunderstanding with the booking and they'd booked a table for 2 rather than 4, this was quickly solved. Honestly can't fault the staff and the food. We'd got the early menu at £17 for 2 courses, although it's a limited menu there is a good choice. I opted for the chicken stack, I ordered without the peppercorn sauce( I'm a finicky eater) initially it came with the sauce but the mistake was soon rectified with sincere apologies, it was beautiful! My husband and son had the burger which did come with chips(despite what a previous review said) they both really enjoyed their meal, my daughter in law had the cid, again she found it delicious. Couldn't have asked for more attentive staff, lovely atmosphere and we'll certainly be returning when we make our return trip to Northern Ireland in August.More

Visited this restaurant for the first time with my elderly Mum who suffers from dementia. We had a 2 hour window before Mum has to go back to her care home. Martin and all the staff could not have been better. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable....We absolutely loved it. The food was served promptly and was delicious. This was our first visit but will not be the last.More
