Very accomodating

Staff unfazed by change in group booking numbers and bringing forward booking time after a long trek along the North Down coastal walk from Bangor. Very good and entertaining service with excellent cuisine. Small gripe that it was one of those rare warm and muggy days of the year and the guests... read more

Been to coast a few times, food is always great and is reasonably priced. Love the honey chilli chicken and the cheesecakes are to die for! Service is great also.

This restaurant was simply wonderful. Staff were great, food was delicious and everyone at our table (aged from 2 - 45!) had a great time. We had a range of dishes, as we were a large party of 9, and every single dish was delicious.

Our party of 7 in total had hoped to go to another local restaurant but they couldn't take us so we decided to see if Coast could take us at the very last minute. This restaurant is quite small, probably seats up to 40. But I think this makes it even more special. The staff were very accommodating. It is... More

This is a great place for students. The lunchtime deals are amazing value. After that time I would not recommend. Any form of adventurous food is disappointing. Service is slow and inattentive. Wine is expensive

Went to Coast on a Friday night and had good expectations of the restaurant but the food was actually a big let down. The baked camembert was ok-ish with some caramelised onions, but the pasta dish was a disappointment. Although the sauce was ok, the beef strips were definately overcooked and chewy. Unfortunately, this wasn't a one-off as my partners... More

We went here for a Sunday Dinner with friends. The roast beef with vegetables and Yorkshire pudding was very good with a good sized portion and good value. Service was good and we would recommend this restaurant if visiting Holywood.

From walking in we were greeted with a very warm welcome from staff. We went for Sunday Dinner Menu. Great choice. Portions were plentiful and very good. I would recommend this restaurant.
