Food was average. Soup pretty tasteless. Bread did not taste fresh, my children couldn't eat their sandwiches because it was too hard. Charged £7.95 for a child's sandwich. No salad, crisps or anything extra. You can 'add soup' to a sandwich for £4 which is expensive enough. On looking at receipt they charged full £4.95 for each soup added to... More

A high quality evening meal in this recently refurbished modern and airy hidden gem with friends. Welcoming and friendly, Coast is located in one of the smaller villages on the Island, combining a menu and standard found at many quality establishments on the mainland but with the local charm that only an Island has. Great cocktails also. Friendly staff who... More

Had a lovely Easter Sunday lunch in a warm, relaxing and beautiful location. Delicious food, good sized portions, served quickly. Great veggie, vegan & gluten free options. Fabulous staff - the American lady, the young girl and guy were all really lovely - friendly, helpful and polite. We'll definitely be back. 😀

Following our arrival on Aaran we stopped off at the Coast for a light lunch. The services was outstanding, the food- well i have to say the Tuna open sandwich I had and the cheese one my husband had were out of this world. I'm known for been very fussy and no one could fault the presentation, taste and overall... More

We were eager to see Coast after it had reopened after refurbishment, as we are regulars in their Sister bistro "Fiddlers" in Brodick, and love the food and cheerful, cosy atmosphere of both the surroundings and staff. We liked the way Coast was decorated before the refurbishment. It was a wee "classy gem" in Whiting Bay. The colour scheme made... More

We visited here for a late lunch and were very pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the menu so much so it took a while to choose. The haddock and chips was very enjoyable but the same batter on the kids goujons made them a bit greasy. I had the Chicken Tikka Wrap and although very tasty, it was a... More

Apparently just reopened after refurbishment and has a great conservatory overlooking the sea. All-day menu with something for everyone: soups, open sandwiches, curry, burgers and some imaginative off-beat options like arancini and haggis "bon bons". Despite the wide range, everything seems freshly made. Charming service.
