Just a coffee and chocolate

Only had a Hot Chocolate and a Coffee in here today. Both very nice, best coffee and chocolate tasted in a while. Great décor and looked like a great menu. Wish I lived there to go back..

I've eaten at Coast many times so thought I should do a review. The menu always a good combination of traditional bistro food and some tempting specials. Price is generally on the higher side but it can justify it as the food and atmosphere is just right - that balance between casual and formal.

We had a lovely meal here, the staff were super welcoming and the food was delicious. Our only negative comment would be that although ambient lighting is nice, it's tricky when you're trying to read the menu if you've got dodgy eyesight!

Attended a private party here in a room downstairs. They coped brilliantly even though the venue was full and we were a big party. The food was good and all delivered at the same time

Simply delicious food. We ate here twice during our visit and each dish was very nice. The fish stew was unreal and the steak melted in your mouth!
