I dined here on a Friday evening at 8pm and to be honest was very disappointed. There are some brilliant restaurants in Holywood and this is rated 1st so had a good bit to live up to. I had eaten here 2 years ago for dinner and also had an ulster fry one morning and enjoyed both but unfortunately not... More

Solid restaurant with good atmosphere. Menu is varied and the food is good. One of Holywood's best places.

A family get-together was made even more comfortable with a relaxed meal at Coast. The muscles for starters where godly and the burgers were to die for. Very helpful and friendly staff. Parking easy too with parking over the road.

Visited for the first time on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Food is beautiful and very fresh and staff are very helpful. Will most definitely be making a few return visits in coming months. Very much recommend eating here and the early bird is great value!

Retuned to Coast with family almost 6 months to the day since we were last there. We were seated in exactly the same seat under the framed photograph of a famous local Golfer. TOP STAFF Kim and Leanne were quickly down to see us with Menus and a lovely warm welcome. We were delighted that they had remembered us from... More

I often meet friends here as we like the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff, and, of course, the food. The past few times I have been here I had the scampi. It is really delicious. I have also had the chilli chicken, which is also great, but it's hard to find scampi as good as this. I am going... More

The others had macaroni with bacon, and salt chilli chicken. 3 clear plates at end of it. The food is excellent quality, fresh ingredients and the price offers fab... More

Visiting son and his girlfriend's family in Holywood and they booked a table at this small family run restaurant for Sunday evening meal. There were 7 adults and our grandson and they provided plenty of room. The food was excellent, we had either 2 or 3 courses. Some had starters, all had a main and some desserts. My 3 courses...

I have eaten here quite a few times. This was no exception. Handy parking in car park at the back and a good range of special offer lunches at around £5 to £7. I had cod goujons and chips with a bap. Very tasty and friendly service.

Thank Bernie S
