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.

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.
