We recently ate an evening meal at The Seahorse and I have not got enough good things to say about it. The decor/atmosphere was like stepping back in time... in France. The atmosphere was dimly-lit, soothing, old-school hospitality with staff who knew their produce and took pride in delivering it. Immaculate staff and surroundings with not a hint of pretence....

Down from London for a few days staying in Kingswear. Found this restaurant on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We had a starter of scallops which I could have quite happily eaten again and again! The mains of octopus and my husbands John Dory were equally good. The wine list is reasonably priced but could do with a... More

My wife and I ate dinner here when visiting Dartmouth for a short break. The food was simply superb. The freshest seafood simply and sympathetically cooked.....sublime! The deserts also do not disappoint. Excellent selection of wines available. The ambience added to the overall experience and the service was impeccable with one, unfortunate, aberration, when a young gentleman, who had been... More

Everything about the Seahorse is fantastic. Firstly, the staff are very welcoming and friendly, happy to chat and have a laugh even when busy, whilst also being very professional and efficient. The food is wonderful, particularly the fish, but as a meat eater, I love the steak and the jus that accompanies it. The courgette fritti must not be missed... More

The nice thing about The Seahorse is that it delivers reliably great cooking in a lovely atmosphere with very good service. We were having a birthday lunch and I had arranged with the restaurant to organise a cake from Saveurs in the town, the lovely Brazilian waitress that took my order had organised that perfectly and was faultless on the...

We visited England again, and came to Dartmouth to stay with friend. Last time we were here, we enjoyed the Seahorse so much we wanted to eat dinner here again - especially my wife, who was very keen to have the local mussels. While the mussels were only on the lunch menu, the excellent waiting staff knew that they had... More

A wonderful meal. Wonderful Service and great surroundings. Without doubt the best meal of the week we spent in Dartmouth, also the most expensive but worth every penny.

This is the premier restaurant in Dartmouth, and for good reason. Well presented, good quality food, with interesting accompaniments. Nothing more to say.... Love it!

Eat here on Tuesday night and was seriously dissapointed with the service. We seemed to be forgotten and I expected so much better given the reave reviews. The food is over-priced which made the poor service so much more aggravating. Vegetables semed to an after thought. Eat at the Rockfish tonight - so much better value and service,
