The freshest of fish beautifully prepared

Superb Cornish scallops and a perfect Dover Sole! I could not fault these simple yet perfect dishes.

Superb Cornish scallops and a perfect Dover Sole! I could not fault these simple yet perfect dishes. There were tasty dips with focaccia bread to accompany our aperitif and set the scene for what turned out to be a memorable meal. Service was efficient and friendly. The Zabaione desert was equally excellent. Highly recommended.

Friends recently took my wife and I to this restaurant for an evening meal. We were not impressed by the experience. No real interest shown by the staff in suggesting and getting us drinks, had to ask for water which arrived warm. For the prices being charged, the food had to be perfect. It was not. Although my dover sole... More

This has been the second time we ate at the seahorse. And like the first time, the food was fantastic. As well as the very friendly stuff that makes the stay even more pleasant. Wish we were living in the neighbourhood to enjoy it more often. But for sure we will be back again.

This was our second visit to the restaurant and we came away even more impressed. The fish is very fresh and nicely prepared. And the service is helpful and friendly. A great place to enjoy seafood.

We visited this restaurant recently for my birthday - we had a window seat which was lovely with plenty of room. Offered a drinks recommendation on arrival with a plate of antipasti, very delicious. Menu is varied - the waiting staff are very knowledgeable and very pleased to make recommendations. I had octopus carpaccio with salad nicoise to start -... More

As usual a wonderful evening with friends. Reliable food. Unpretentious and excellent service. Help with menu and excellent recommendations on wine. Whole experience was wonderful. Can't recomment enough . (Don't know why I'm doing this as it's going to make it even harder to get a table!!) v. Well done Mitch!

Booked for lunch and decided to have the two course lunch for £20 with extras. Service was very efficient and extremely friendly and helpful. While we waited we had antipasti with glass of prosecco at £3.50 each which was good value and a pleasant introduction. My wife and I both had Zuppa di Pesce (fish soup) which was rich and... More

We originally had a booking for 7.00pm, but realised the menu was a lot more expensive than I had been led to believe, by the literature that I had seen about it. We realised that by eating between 6.00pm & 7.00pm we could use a cheaper menu that suited our pockets much better, as we are pensioners. They knew it... More
