Excellent service from the moment we arrived to the time we left. Friendly, but not familiar, and very efficient but totally unhurried from very knowlegeable staff, despite having a full restaurant. The food was very good indeed, expertly cooked with accompaniments that complemented but did not overwhelm the delicate flavour of the fish.

We went for lunch after my family had raved over this place for ages. Loved it. It was remarkably quiet for a Friday in Easter holidays but always book ahead. They cater for range of prices within the menu with a locals lunch for £20. This includes a starter, a main and a side. I was very tempted by the... More

Enjoyed a magical dinner here at the end of last year. Yesterday we returned for a lunch. Went for al la carte although there's a great £20 two-course locals menu too. All fine including great service. But gentlemen, why you think charging £7.50 each for a smallish glass of house red (as requested) is acceptable, I dont know. Sadly it... More

Well worth experiencing this lovely restaurant! They have recently added a relaxing bar to the rear of the restaurant called Joe's bar which has a gentleman's club feel to it and my partner and I enjoyed a vermouth before being invited to take our seat in the restaurant. We were exceptionally looked after by Mitch Tonks and his team and... More

Four of us chose the lunch menu @ £20 for two courses. Every mouthful was delicious. Well worth a visit and we will return, highly recommend. Don't expect large portions. My only gripe.. the price of an afogato..£6.50 which I feel is a little steep!

We had the pleasure of visiting The Seahorse on 2 occasions during a weeks stay in Dartmouth in March. Having eaten there a number of times before we know what a fine establishment it is but once again we were blown away by the quality of food and warmth of welcome. On both occasions we had an early table in... More

Had a beautiful meal here with our daughter as a early mother's day treat. Welcome and service excellent, staff very friendly and confident in making recommendations, really helpful advice with wines to compliment food which was delicous, nothing was too much trouble i.e., sharing plates, would definitely recommend

Love this restaurant as locals we use it for special occasions and it has never disappointed. Tonights meal was particularly good, juicy scallops and beautiful sole. Staff were friendly and on the ball with a full restaurant. Highly recommended but its not a cheap option but in my opinion fair prices for quality food.

Seahorse has an excellent reputation locally and I dare say nationally. My wife and I decided to redeem a Seahorse voucher we were given at Christmas, to have a celebration lunch for the third anniversary of our moving to this beautiful town. We were given a warm welcome and the appetisers were a delight. The lunch menu was interesting and... More
