The service was second to none, the food was absolutely gorgeous the best food I have eaten in a long time, the muscles were tasty the scallops cooked to perfection and the turbo was huge and meaty, we all had a great meal and nothing...

The food was great, my wife and I both had fish for starter , sharing a whole grilled brill for our main course, even the side dishes were good. Would definitely recommend... More

I booked a table for lunch for my husbands birthday. The location is lovely right on the front and the restaurant itself is cosy and tastefully decorated. As it was a birthday treat, we chose the turbot which was lovely but small and very plainly cooked. We had to pay extra for all side orders, which amounted to a very... More

We found the atmosphere wonderful, at last a bit of sophistication. We had been sailing the Devon/Cornwall coast line for a couple of weeks and this was just what we needed ... or so we thought. We both ordered the salmon to start, but unfortunately it was swimming in olive oil. The flavour of the olive oil was so strong... More

What a fantastic meal - the surroundings are smart but the service friendly the waiting staff were some of the best I have encountered - a perfect place for any celebration. One of the best meals my father in law had ever had!

We knew it was going to be an expensive meal but worth every penny, the seafood was of the highest quality and with such food not a lot of "cooking" or "messing with" is needed and that is what was delivered. Wine choice extensive again as expected, the staff I found very knowledgeable about both the food and wine. Cheaper... More

We arrived at the Seahorse late in the evening and already been turned away by one restaurant but the Seahorse staff couldn't have been nicer. Although they did say on arrival that it was past their normal last order time , they checked with the chef and quickly found us a table. We gad delicious bread and Parmesan shavings to... More
