Scrummy!

On first look at the menu we were a bit unsure what we would choose and nearly walked bye, I'm glad we didn't! I'd call this place tapas. We just chose a few small and in between plates, and a couple of sides. It was delicious! We would definitely go back. Cocktails are nice too! Go enjoy!

We visited Coast Restaurant and Bar on Easter Sunday, to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was our first visit to this restaurant and we were very impressed by the ambiance, customer service, and the food/wine. The menu is interesting and the meals are designed to share. The beef ribs were particularly good! Well worth adding this restaurant to your plans,... More

Every once in while, you have a dining experience that revises your thinking about what it means to have a great meal. Coast Restaurant provided just such an experience. Located on the Esplanade, Coast has both indoor and outdoor seating. The decor is somewhat minimalist, and one might be tempted to bypass the restaurant. It looks trendy but leaves no... More

Was our first time visit, dinner for three. The menu came across like something from 'Master Chef', and from where we were sitting the whole combination of our dining experience left an impression to suggest it out weighed the show... Excellent service, along with superbly cooked food from an imaginative menu ensures that we will definitely be returning to enjoy... More

Not knowing the area and arrving late, were recommended to eat here by a local and ate twice in our 3 night stay. The menu choice was imaginative and exciting and the service was spot on - just the right level of friendliness and service. We decided to have sharing plates so that we could experience a wider choice and... More

Booked a table at this restaurant as it seemed the only fine dining experience available in this area. We were not disappointed. The interior of the restaurant is lovely and feels welcoming yet cool. The two wait staff who looked after us were really fantastic and added to the experience. They were both well versed in the menu and wine... More

Had a great meal, started with a delicious 'slider', then shared mains of half chook & half serve of beef ribs with a delicious side of Asian greens. There were also very nice pink grapefruit margarita slushes. Friendly service & a nice atmosphere made it a very enjoyable evening.

Four of us went on Sunday, March 22 for my Husbands 50th birthday. Three of us ordered the quail & one the szechuan prawns. All of the meals were of the highest quality, presented immaculately & with a sunshine smile by the wait staff.

We ate at the Coast for our anniversary. The decor and location was great and you could have an inside table with air con, or an outside with better views of the Bay. The menu was not as extensive as we had hoped but the quality was good. Don't go if you are starving and expect a counter lunch style... More
