Lovely food with superb service

I'd been planning to eat at The Seahorse for about 12 months but never seemed to find the time to get to Dartmouth. About a week ago I realised I would be in Devon at the weekend and managed to get a table an early table for lunch. I ate from the lunchtime menu which was incredible value. The... read more

Although I am not a fan of fish, sometimes you accept an invitation to a particular restaurant because it's the choice of a others. I was reassured by the online menu for April 2015 promising lamb cutlets. Slighty disappointed to find when ordering that the Meat of the Day had changed to veal. Disappointed again when the waiter came back... More

We had an enjoyable dinner here, the food was fresh - we had crab salad followed by hake which was delicious - I agree with the other reviews, at these prices it would be reasonable to include the tiny side order dishes in the main price. Great wine selection and we enjoyed the antipasti. I really liked the décor and... More

We had been looking forward to visiting the Seahorse but were disappointed with our experience. Service was poor and at times haphazard. The serving staff showed little interest in serving us, preferring instead to chat to friends at a nearby table. Main course prices are high and if you want accompanying vegetables and potatoes they are an additional £3.50 -... More

Whilst taking into account experiences from friends (all good BTW) , i must have missed something ... or expected too much or made a poor choice from the menu Restaurant had a great atmosphere with leather banquettes around the edge of the room - perfect ! We were given some antipasti on sitting down which was fantastic with a glass... More

Hi Cragnet Thanks for visiting us and really pleased you enjoyed your evening and hope you will return. I just wanted to get back to you about the pasta dish. The spaghetti is made from white pasta, not wholewheat and the sauce is made from the long simmering of lobster or crab shells in which the fresh seafood and spaghetti... More

Friendly greeting with prompt attention to drinks-a saucer of Prosecco with grilled peppers and anchovy paste and brioche. The menu was elaborated on after we had a chance to study it. The set menu looked good value but we opted for the a la carte.A starter of a crunchy crab and white asparagus salad allowed the flavour of the crab... More

We have eaten at many fish restaurants from 2*Michelin to small & traditional so we know what we like. I had high hopes based on the reviews, but I was disappointed. The service & look of the restaurant are excellent. My husband enjoyed his crab starter & frito misto, hence why I gave 4 stars & not 3. However, for... More

The seahorse is a superb restaurant. The staff were delightful, efficient and very knowledgable about their menu. There were 6 of us. 5 of us had fish and shellfish which was their speciality but the 2 men had steak which was delicious. We had a7 year old child in our party and they offered us fresh fish goujons and pasta... More

Lovely food however we were sat by the very draughty door. My husband had to get up three times to shut it! Also the waitress seemed to pay a lot of attention to a couple she obviously knew explaining things to them she forgot to explain to us.

Another family birthday. What better way to celebrate? Nice to have an excuse to book a table here again. For the two of us this is for 'high days and holidays' as they say. Packed on this particular Saturday night, but still enough room to hold a private conversation at the table. Excellent varied menu and, of course, wonderfully prepared... More
