Always so good!

Our third visit in the past 12 months, and each time we said it couldn't get any better.... Yet each time it does! Fresh is always part of the magic at the Seahorse, and the fish has never disappointed! Service has always been faultless and the wine list is good. We will be back in Dartmouth in... read more

We were greeted well but shown to a table in the middle of the restaurant by the entrance door. Fortunately we were able to be moved. No menu's came, but we were offered Prosecco or a cocktail, didn't want either so had to ask for the menu. Early booking made so we could take advantage of the Locals Menu but... More

We have dined on several occasions at the Sea Horse Restaurant, we cannot fault the atmosphere, the service or the food. The restaurant is small enough to be intimate but big enough to have a good buzz about it. The staff are very attentive but at the same time extremely friendly and welcoming. The food is just divine with a... More

We took our teenage nephew and niece (who don't eat a lot of seafood!) for a Regatta lunch, and we all had a superb meal. Some of our party had the very good value 'locals lunch' menu, and the others dined from the main menu. Highlights included the very plumb succulent Elberry Cove Mussels and the Sea Bass was wonderful.... More

First thing: Front of house staff are excellent, absolutely no issues there. Problem was with the food. Classic dishes are just that! Leave them alone. Chilli & Moules are not natural bed fellows. Coriander has its place in Asian cuisine, not with Oysters! We had waited a year to try this restaurant and it was such a disappointment. Seafood spoilt... More

We had an excellent lunch here. Fresh and tasty seafood, good service. Not cheap and a bit cramped, table spacing could use increasing.

Dartmouth must be one of the prettiest towns in the UK and this must certainly be one of the best fish restaurants. We booked on line for lunch - and were slightly apprehensive as we were asked to agree to vacate the table within 2 hours (unless we requested longer in advance). However, in the event, there was absolutely no... More

This was our first visit. I had John Dory with Fennel Gratin which I enjoyed. My husband had Fritto Misto which he did not enjoy as much (think it was the wrong choice for him). The desserts were good. I thought my meal was very nice but it was not outstanding. The service was very good and efficient.
