I disagree with some of the reviews on here. Yes it is a tad pricey but you're paying not only for first class fresh food but also excellent friendly helpful service and a great ambience. You pay for the whole eating out experience. Portions aren't huge but you don't need to stuff yourself to enjoy a meal. If you want... More

What a superb place to dine - first class attentive service; lovely food where the ingredients are allowed to shine; and an intimate room with a view of the kitchen brigade in action. Thanks to all who served us tonight - it was truly outstanding!

Great food and really great service in this unpretentious but quality restaurant. The scallops were fantastic as was the sea bass. We enjoyed some good wine and champagne too. Not a cheap evening out but very enjoyable.

We cannot recommend the Seahorse enough. This is the fourth year we have been, even if this my first review on trip advisor. The food is really delicious (fresh, lovely, well presented), the decor is classy and intimate (varnished wood and inviting yellow leather) with friendly and helpful service. Hard to beat, anywhere in the world. Tonight, exquisite salted cod... More

Has been described as pricey, but it's a very classy fish restaurant. What do you expect? We had a fabulous meal.

The joy of visiting the Seahorse is to experience extremely well balanced fish dishes that major on quality of ingredients and often char grill cooking. We regularly stay in Dartmouth and since we had a child, a visit to the Seahorse for a special lunch is usually our treat (many restaurants in Dartmouth don't accept children under 7). Young sir...

We have eaten at the Sea Horse on a number of occasions, all of which have been relatively enjoyable, but on this occasion was very different. On entering the restaurant, there was no smile of greeting or welcome. The lack of ambience and muted atmosphere continued as the meal progressed. I almost had the impression that all of the staff...

It is true in the world of eateries that once the hard work of building a reputation is done, there are often two paths that an establishment can be led down: to strive for excellence or slip backwards as the focus and drive diminish. The reason restaurants are allowed to slip backwards over a significant period of time is that... More

Dear sir I'm not really sure why you feel you are such an authority on restaurants. "Tipped for a star", "coveted " " whitewashed windows", why don't you come to a restaurant to eat as is the intended purpose, relax and enjoy yourself rather than to come and think that anyone is interested in this sort of view. We run... More

Good value, large portions and freshly cooked. A little crowded - they could with removing some tables. Keenly priced

We visited The Seahorse as part of our minimoon this week. It's a lovely place, right on the front with the emphasis rightly on seafood! The salt cod appetizer was absolutely delicious and was followed by starters of shrimp with polenta and scallops, both of which were lovely. Unfortunately my husband received the wrong main course (Frito Misto instead of... More
