The Coachman is a nice restaurant in Port Elizabeth, the service is OK, they give an exclusive waitress for the night, and the food quality is alright. I had a good steak, can’t complaint. There are probably better choices in the city but this is also a good place to eat. Not great but good enough.

We had our faculty dinner recently at The Coachman and I must say that I was quite impressed. The place is cozy, unpretentious and has a very English pub feel to it. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly and I loved the atmosphere of the place. We were ordering from a set menu, so I admit that I didn't... More

Arrived during a cold night in Port Elizabeth and was met by the warmest hospitality. The service was superb with the owner checking in to make sure our evening was perfect. The lamb shank was recommended and wisely so. It was melt in your mouth good served with veggies. The decor is warm and inviting and I will be back.

We've been to both venues, but prefer the Coachman in Cape Road. Nice and quiet. Great food and service. Our favourite place.

Without a doubt the best restaurant with the best views in PE. The service is amazing and the food is great. They can sometimes cremate the steaks, but the service and atmosphere make up for the odd mistake.

The sole is a must. I have never eaten a sole better then here. The place is 4 star inside with the most friendly staff.

Once again the food was exceptional at The Coachman, my guests and I had nothing but praise for the quality, presentation and taste. Only complaint was the service this time around… when you have to get up 4 times to go find your waitress it ruins a great evening. Previously service has been impeccable and therefore I will not be... More

Me and my wife had dinner at The Coachman a few days ago. I must say that it's been a while since we enjoyed so much at a restaurant. The fillet was one of the best I ever had and the service was absolutely perferct. Definitely recommended ! Guy.
