About The Seahorse

Our restaurant, situated on the banks of the River Dart in Dartmouth, specialises in seafood cooked over an open charcoal fire. We are lucky to have some of the best fish and shellfish in the world landed here right here and in the fish market over the water in Brixham. In addition to our full menu we offer a locals menu, 3 courses for £20 which is served at lunchtimes and until 7pm excluding Saturday night, we are also open for long relaxing Sunday lunches.
We have an extensive wine list of over 180 bins, all carefully chosen for seafood and we open a selection each day to serve by the glass, so there is always something different to try.
Guests are invitied to take a drink, before or after their meal, in Joe's bar at The Seahorse; it is a delightful cosy place to begin or end a meal with us. For a more private dining experience our beautiful room, "The Cantina", is available for booking for up to 14 guests and you can tailor your menu and booking to create the best event to suit you.
We offer a warm atmoshpere and friendly service and families are most welcome to dine with us.
We look forward to welcoming you.

Thoroughly first rate. The points that stand out include: excellent appetisers - (they set the scene and got the gastronomic enthusiasm to a high pitch), spot on cooking with artistic presentation, generous portions, good menu choices for the £20 lunch, and professional service.

We enjoyed another blissful evening at the Seahorse with guest chef Nathan Outlaw. The menu and food as always was perfect. Mitch and his team run a superb restaurant and are the jewel in Dartmouth's dining establishments. Maggie Dawson

The Seahorse is truly remarkable, The brilliant staff, front and back clearly know what they are doing - the high standard always delivers beyond expectations and each time I return I’m reminded how excellent it is - my only complaint is it’s too far from London for me to enjoy regularly...

The food was delicious, staff attentive. Only issue we had was the time between courses, booked for 12 o'clock, the table was needed to be returned by 1.30 so only put 2 hours on the car for parking, however we had to get the bill at the same time as dessert, 1.40, and rush. Will definitely allow more time next time.

As ever, absolutely terrific. My wife and I came in for the 'local' lunch before touring the Naval College. The sparking albarino aperitif (which we were introduced to in the summer) set us up nicely for the afternoon! Matilda her usual friendly, professional and charming self....so not much more we could ask for. We'll be back in town - thus The Seahorse - the weekend of Candlelit Dartmouth Regards, Bob Dyson.

We had the local market menu which was excellent value. The a la carte can be a bit pricey. There is nothing in between, so perhaps a fixed price dinner menu might be a good idea, at leastfor midweek

Great tasting lunch with a lovely view. I really enjoyed the pumpkin and sage risotto especially. Being able to order a carafe of wine was great for being able to enjoy wine with my nan (who drinks only a small amount). My father loved the bread and aoili and nan was very happy with the ray wing. Thanks

It was a gorgeous amouse bouche. The fish was beautifully presented and cooked for our next courses. The pudding was disappointing. It did not compare with the rest of the meal. The service was an exceptional mix of fun and professional.

Every meal I've ever had at the Seahorse since it opened has been so fresh, so delicious, so brilliantly cooked, crucially served by really friendly staff so its always fun too - however the 'Al Gatto Nero' event dinner this Saturday cooked by the Gatto's owners, a great family team, was a truly special occasion - nine delicious courses, with a special exceptional wine list for that evening - if it had been my last meal on earth I would have died a really happy guy - huge thanks to all and yet again to Mitch and Mat and their fantastic team too for keeping their standards high and always delivering a great evening - all too rare in this country...

A really enjoyable evening, great to see the staff from Al Gatto Nero again. The whole menu was delicious a real treat, all the Seahorse staff were great especially the young wine waiter very personable. Wish we could do it all again next Saturday!

The Seahorse goes from Strength to Strength but above all it’s the excellent friendly professional staff that Mitch and team have pulled together and nurtured into a first rate restaurant that’ not only delivers excellent food and wine but makes it a fun happy place to fine dine.

The Seahorse embraces every aspect of a fine restaurant – superb food, exemplary customer service and the perfect ambience to contribute to a most memorable evening. The staff at every level made us feel very valued customers and clearly had a detailed knowledge of their menu. The food was prepared with care and attention to detail, was beautifully presented and tasted absolutely delicious. This is a restaurant which comes highly recommended and certainly lives up to every expectation.
