On Tuesday evening 4 November 2014, I visited this truly elegant restaurant. The ambiance is complimented by attentive waitresses who are all immaculately dressed in elegant long blue dresses. Full marks to the Coachman for moving away from the mundane "cheap" black outfits usually provided by the temporary waitresses and waiters themselves. The service in every small detail was excellent.... More

Perfect restaurant for a business dinner or a 5star experience. Helpful (and extremely attractive) staff with very broad knowledge on the menu will make this an enjoyable experience. Book a table outside to enjoy the views of Humewood beach. The Black Widow Mushroom starter is absolutely divine.

The restaurant is now at the Algoa Bayside overlooking the Bay. We have been here many times and celebrate all our families' birthday etc here. Time and again the food is excellent, the Maitre'd highly professional and the gorgeous girls (waitrons) all eye candy - talking about treating the senses! And every time the restaurant was absolutely packed to capacity.

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

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
