I have had lunch and dinner at Coast and can recommend both options. The lunch menu offers a £5 upwards meal deal and I love the mini loaves that come with the soup. Four of us had dinner recently and there is a wide choice on both early bird and main menus. I have always been impressed with the staff... More

I have visited before and I have only ever heard good reviews but I was very disappointed with the food this time around. I started with the chicken wings and although they were tasty, they were drowned in very hot sauce which made it difficult to even lift out. My husband had the Thai green curry, it very bland and...

Atmosphere from walking in the door, relaxing, evenly well spaced seating, decor and lighting calming which is not like other restaurants in Holywood I have been in, which was nice to start things off with. I had an hour to kill before going back to work, so thought I would take the wife for brunch. Charlie our waitress showed us... More

On first looking at the menu we thought wow this is expensive. But we decided on large fry regardless and my mum got French toast. The fry isn't large.....it is humongous! And gorgeous. And worth the money. Mum loved her food also. Good service, good bottomless coffee. Worth a splash out now and again

With a good range of dishes on the menu, friendly and efficient staff and great Guinness, what's not to like? I've visited several times with work colleagues and the food has never disappointed - always delicious, served quickly and in portions to satisfy even the biggest appetites. Coast is a firm favourite for the team and doubtless we'll be back... More

We did go at the uninspiring time of around 6:00pm, and the atmosphere felt like it was between busy periods. Initial greetings was muted and not overly welcoming. Waitress thereafter were great though. Food was also good enough so it's not that there was anything actually wrong, but it also wasn't something that made me think 'I'll def go back... More
