Our first dinner at The Coachman, Marine Drive and we were not disappointed. The place was very busy - we had made a reservation around lunchtime and were lucky enough to get the last table for dinner that night. We both had fillet, which was done to perfection.

The new coachman at Brooke's Pavillion is definitely worth a visit! Steaks better than old Ranch, decor and ambience great - uniforms for waitrons tad corny however. Great views as well

We always want to go to same old restaurant. These people cater for every need, even with children. Lovely atmosphere and good service by owner and waitresses.

Every year or so when we are in PE we go to the Coachman and every time we enjoy the experience. The setting in an old house is good, the service friendly and helpful and the steaks always of a good quality.

The steaks were excellent, cooked to perfection. Good friendly service - to be pickie the wine is over priced and the corkage OTT at R40. Overall a very enjoyable evening.
