I have nothing but great words to say about the lunch menu I had here in December 2016. The fish was absolutely stunning; you could tell it was freshly caught. The deal we got was really good value, and the waitresses were very nice and friendly. I would definitely eat here again, couldn't say a single bad word.

I went to the Seahorse recently with 3 friends as it is deemed the best restaurant in Dartmouth and whilst I do not typically choose fish as my primary food I am always up to give it a go. We had a starter cocktail in the bar joined by some other people we knew. This has been decorated in art... More

Had a nice lunch in very pleasant surroundings. I was a bit disappointed that they did not have a shell fish platter & the waitress looked aghast when I enquired as to whether such a dish existed. I suppose it's too much to expect that living on an island, shell fish would be on the menu of a bespoke fish... More

We had a wonderful meal at The Seahorse. The restaurant itself is very cosy; a lovely and relaxed atmosphere. There is an extensive wine list, and the bottle we chose was superb, a flavoursome white from Douro. Our starters were lovely and well presented. But we were more excited by our main course. We opted for the grilled whole monkfish... More

Was expecting a great deal from this place...and it delivered. Lovely atmosphere...not too formal and stuffy. Excellent service - staff are friendly but not in your face. The food was amazing - not faffed about with but simple and delicious using the best quality ingredients. It's not cheap by any means but worth the price for the quality. Ask or... More

This is a lovely restaurant with only about 30 seats. Interesting decor, excellent service and food. It is right in the Heart of Dartmouth and they do a Locals menu for lunch for only £20 which is outstanding value. The portions are a good size, so you will not leave hungry. I have marked the price mid range as with... More

With a good selection of fresh fish simply cooked but full of flavour this restaurant does not disappoint. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Very friendly staff made up for us being underwhelmed by the food which had been much hyped in the press. This has been our experience in other restaurants where a good chef opens multiple restaurants.

We came here for dinner on our first Friday night in Dartmouth based on trip advisor recommendations and were certainly not disappointed. The room itself is smart and cosy with warm lighting and friendly unpretentious staff. Extensive wine list a little on the pricey side and we all had different starters which were equally delicious (even the caprese salad as... More
