Had one of the best meals I have ever eaten in The Seahorse last week. Everything was delicious. My only complaint was that none of my companions wanted dessert so I didn't have the zabione that I so seriously wanted!! And I am still regretting it! The staff were lovely, although one of the waitresses didn't know what a carpetshell... More

Had dinner here recently with 3 others. All enjoyed the food which had some interesting and unusual flavours. The scallops starter was particularly good. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasantly informal . Only criticism was the cheese board - £12.50 for 3 small and rather indifferent pieces of cheese. Desperately poor.

We must have chosen the wrong day to have lunch at The Seahorse. On the day of our visit the solid looking entrance door was firmly closed which together with the French curtains obscuring the windows made it difficult to tell if the restaurant was actually open. However on venturing inside we found a business meeting in progress which meant... More

I really wanted to write a 5 star review. If I was rating only the food, it would be, and then some. Aside from a large shard of shell in the crab starter, it really was impeccable. Seafood treated so lovingly, and with that gentle Italian touch... Breathtaking. Sadly our lunch service, in a not even half-full restaurant was almost... More

When in Dartmouth we always try to pay a visit here and as previously, we were not disappointed. This restaurant is the top level in Mitch Tonks growing empire of fish restaurants and is certainly worth up grading from the Rockfish level to this much more refined and higher standard. A wonderful amuse bouche of anchovies and caper mayonnaise set... More

Lunch for four today, a stunning location on the front. As soon as you walk in its a wow, very well laid out, spacious, great decor, light and airy. Staff attentive, friendly and welcoming. Not even looked at the menu yet!!!!!! Set menu for £20, a limit on choice maybe but having chosen we were blown away by the starters,... More

I'm not moaning about the price as I think that you need to pay for quality, but don't think cheap when you think Seahorse. I had the scallops which were fine. Followed by a shared monkfish, which was superb, complementing this was a baked fennel dish which was cooked to perfection and ended up with a somewhat mild and buttery... More
