Fantastic location above the Fish Market restaurant. If you got a table near the window, it is a pretty nice view out towards the Byward Market and the Parliament Hill (although you can't actually see the Parliament building). Nice rustic, vintage pub feel reminiscent of some older pubs in London that has a second floor for dining. Food is decent.... More

Excellent food. Lovely view of the Byward Market and the fireplace makes it extra cozy on a cold day. Our server, Julia, was very friendly and often came by to check if there was anything we needed. She couldn't have possibly done anything better. The cook did an excellent job on the mussels. You can't go wrong with the all... More

Treated out of town guests to all-you-can-eat mussels & fries on a Tuesday evening. Greeted by the Manager who asked if we had a reservation, which we did; he said he’d be right back. Less than 5 minutes later a server spun by to ask the same question; he said he would go check on our table. Someone else game... More

Checking the menus for Coasters & The Fish Market Restaurant I knew where I'd be going. Coasters-A good friendly casual atmosphere with excellent service & beautiful meal. Herb crusted Atlantic salmon beautifully cooked & a decent size with fries & house salad. Great service from Sarah. A good place to dine for good value & a casual atmosphere.

The location is great in the Byward market area but the food really misses the mark. Other than the warm bread served with spice infused oil the rest was really ho hum. We shared the spicey crab cakes that were not spicey , they were deep fried and a bit tough to eat. Mussels were tiny and the white wine... More

Other than good service, the food here tasted ordinary. Presentation was just about average too. It appears that the location, being in the middle of town, is the main draw for tourists.

Was looking forward to eating here, in a party of six, as the menu looked delicious. The upstairs did not look too busy, and our orders were taken promptly, and appetizers followed after a reasonable wait. But then we waited and waited and waited for our entrees. Eventually we asked where was our food, and staff began to scurry about,... More
