Had a wonderful New Year's Eve at Seagrass hosted by the amazing Julia and Scott dressed up as superheroes. They really are superheroes too as the food and wine was fantastic and the evening had a great buzz about it just like New Year's Eve should. Thanks to Julia, Scott, Steve and the rest of the kitchen and front of... More

How nice to go to a small restaurant where the staff all seem to be working together as a harmonious team. From front of house to the quality of food being prepared it felt like everyone wanted to ensure you had the best experience possible. A lovely touch was the confetti on the table for my wife's birthday which made... More

We had a wonderful meal here and despite being the only table (it was low season) the service was discreet and we didn't feel pressured. I recommend pre-ordering the crab, we had one between two of us and feasted! The starters - scallops with black pudding and classic mussels, were also really fresh and perfectly cooked.

Our first visit to Seagrass and it will not be our last. Good attentive service, friendly and welcoming. Starter was very tasty as was the Hake main course with crispy kale and salsa. Food prepared and delivered with care.

We visited Seagrass on Christmas Eve 2014. This was our first visit and certainly will not be our last. The welcome was warm and friendly and we had a lovely level of service throughout the evening. We were in fact greeted with a free glass of bubbly as I had mentioned we had just got married. What a lovely touch,... More

What can I say? Looking for a fish restaurant, we found this one on TripAdvisor. We got the last table and we weren't disappointed. Fabulous, well cooked food. Lovely service. And all a stone's throw from the harbour. Will certainly be back.
