There is a reason this is one of our first ports of call when we want a treat. It is just superb, handling all aspects of a restaurant experience superbly.
It's not stuffy, the staff are great, the menu is imaginative, the ingredients and cooking are always faultless and the attention to detail is fantastic.
Here are a couple of instances from our most recent visit. I ordered fish soup and when the waitress removed the lid she gave an elegant flick of her wrist to dissipate the steam. Class.
Alongside all the locally caught fish were the sort of treats you'd experience on an Italian holiday like Buratta and Bottega, and superb olives.
I even like the music they play, and here's the third instance of The Seahorse's 'specialness'. A track they were playing was bugging me, I could't remember what it was so 'Shazam-ed' it. Seconds later, a waitress arrived with a piece of paper. On it was written, 'Ernestine - Joe Bataan'. Class.
Every time we go The Seahorse impresses us. Only two things have changed since our first visit. It's cheaper; and with all the attention to detail a bit of a bargain. And they've bowed to the British public's craving for Brits to eat chips with their fish. Can't wait to go back again, this is everything a restaurant should be.
