Lovely lunch

This is a comfortable restaurant on the main street. We were there at lunchtime and were served a delicious lunch which was excellent value. The staff are friendly & helpful. It is popular so you would be wise to book a table in advance.

Went to Coast for lunch with my sister and we had mussels and portion of chips between us. I have had the mussels before and they have been fine, but this time they were so tiny you could hardly taste them. We said to the waitress who said they had no complaints before, and that she would say to the... More

I had to write something as Coast went above and beyond service. I requested something not on the usual Early Bird menu (being a pain in the neck I'm sure!) but not only was it made for me but the portion size was fantastic. Followed it off with amazing banoffee! I'll be back!

Went here today without a pre-booking and we're lucky to get a table downstairs as it was very busy. There were two of us and we had a lovely light lunch. I had the pate and toast starter which was quite substantial and my sister and a toaster. We also had chips. Very quick service and very tasty food.

We ate here as we happened to be in Holywood around lunch time. The staff are very friendly, making chit chat while you're seated and happily changing our drinks when they arrived flat. However, that's about where the positives end. We both ordered honey chilli chicken goujons. The chicken goujons were undoubtedly the greasiest things I have ever ate, imagine... More
