My partner and I went to coast for dinner the other night and ordered the slow cooked lamb. I was a bit pricey but totally worth it. The lamb was huge luckily we were able to take it home

Visited Coast earlier this year, fantastic then fantastic now, will definitely return again, had the sweet potato salad, grilled prawns, pork scratchings and shared plenty more. The staff accommodated our group at the last minute on a wednesday night, we were in a hurry to get back to the hospital to an urgent family matter, the food was fast and... More

Food is pretty good but not quite worth the price tag. The beetroot risotto especially was almost sickly sweet. Other things much better. The atmosphere and service was great though especially for Hervey. Would go again.

Went there for tea on a Friday night with 8 friends. They do share platters so its good for a group. The food was fantastic,no doubt about it they got that right. We chose the dinner and dessert option and it was great. Loved every bite. The wait staff however was another matter. There was one nice young guy who... More

Upon arrival, we couldn't fault the service. Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. But the food was a let down, particularly as this was a special night out and we had saved this restaurant for it. We ordered 3 dishes to share: the pork belly, the grilled king prawns and shoestring fries. The pork belly was overcooked and the rind... More

I had been recommended by multiple people to dine at Coast and I was not disappointed. The actual restaurant is beautiful. The menu options are great and the food is amazing. Tapas style plates, perfect for sharing. Two small plates, two larger plates and two drinks cost around $100, so not cheap but perfect for a special occasion or date... More

The food is nice, mostly, the idea is a bit like a family dinner with the dishes designed to be share betwedn 4 or more. This is ok for big eaters and larger numbers but don't bother if you are a couple or have younger kids neither works. I don't find it an inviting atmosphere eithef but it can be... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us Rosemary, we really appreciate your feedback. I'm wondering if you may have come away a little confused by our menu. There is only a few dishes that would suit four or more people (and all but one of these we do in half size servings) and in fact our... More
