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

A big thank you to the team for their patience and kindness when we got engaged in December. We had a magical evening and the food was delicious! We don't often have seafood but when by the sea I can seriously recommend the fresh fabulous taste of the seafood platter! Thank you again for such a lovely evening!

Good food, modern restaurant, expensive. Extensive wine list but again costly, so 1 glass of wine and a bottle of water. We did have the prosecco aperitif which was good. Prompt, friendly service and knowledgeable staff.

We went to the restaurant on the riverside at Dartmouth for my birthday lunch. My family wanted it to be special, and thanks to the staff in front of house (Matilda and a young man who will sadly be leaving soon) and to the chefs, it was certainly that. We felt welcome, at ease and pampered, and the food was... More

I have read a few of the other reviews and some valid comments are made about pricing but there is no mistaking the quality of the produce. We dined a la carte after the early bargain diners had finished so obviously it was going to be more expensive. If you don't want to pay so much, I suggest you come... More

We were looking forward to eating at this restaurant, based on some reviews we had arrived. We both love seafood. Sadly we were disappointed by a distinctly average meal. There is a nice ambience and decor to the restaurant. Staff were friendly enough albeit not totally 'on the ball'. We both had the scallop starter, which as I saw in... More

Much Tonk's flagship in Dartmouth is well worth a visit. Stunning fish and a lovely atmosphere. Lovely local wines. It's pricey but you get what you pay for. A lovely restaurant for a special occasion.

This Restaurant is normally very good but on this occasion it failed to excite and the food was just average for the price I have always enjoyed eating here but will think again from now on
