Very nice place to sit on the out side deck with your husband and spend the night alone watching the beachfront. Enjoying the boats passing by and having wonderful food.

This place came highly recommended by our hotel which arranged a reservation for us. However since we travelled all day to get to Port Elizabeth we only managed to reach the Coachman at about 9pm. We were quickly seated at one of the table on the gas heated covered balcony and handed over the menu. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy... More

Just stopped in to pick up take out for my family after a long day traveling. Staff was VERY nice, food was excellent. Wish we were in town longer otherwise we would have been sure to eat there. A fantastic place.

We wandered up to this restaurant from a hotel further down the street after seeing good reviews and we were so happy. The food was extremely good. We had steak, wine and a calamari appetizer. All told, I think my wife and I's bill was around $40 USD. I thought that was extremely reasonable. The steak was tender and cooked... More

Great place to relax and have a meal after a busy day. Good food & great service. It's worth another visit. Wine prices are on the high side.

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.
