“Great ambiance!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Coachman is a lovely restaurant with great food and a beautiful setting. You got the choice of sitting inside where the colour hypnosis you or out side where you got a stunning view of the bay.

“Sublime Saturday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

A group of 7 of us went to Coachman on the Bay on a glorious still and sunny Saturday afternoon to celebrate the 86th birthday of our host and all were delighted with their meals, which ranged from mussels to steaks. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive and saw to it that wine glasses were kept full,all in all a most enjoyable experience. One comment I would make is that the girls' " uniforms " are rather outdated and could do with a fresher, more modern look!

“Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We arrived early and started with a meeting while the staff waited patiently. Later had some really excellent food and wine, and despite the restaurant being full by then, we had plenty of attention from the staff. Certainly worth a visit
