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. The Seahorse al Mare offers a new Seahorse experience on the South Embankment overlooking the river Dart. Retaining all of the restaurant's charm but with a cool beach club vibe, the Seahorse al Mare serves up the spirit of conviviality and a warm atmosphere with beautiful views across the water together with freshly grilled local seafood, magnums of rosé and summer sounds.
The Seahorse al Mare is comfortable whatever the weather, set in a marquee on the Embankment with adjustable sides that can be opened on sunny days and closed to keep you cosy if it's drizzly. If the view isn't enough, you can watch our chefs cooking your seafood over fire outside while you enjoy generous pourings of Seahorse rosé from the Loire Valley.
We look forward to welcoming you to Seahorse al Mare where you can book a table for up to six people from six households or if you prefer private dining with your own chef or are hosting a celebration you can dine in The Cantina, which seats up to ten people from two households.
The Seahorse al Mare is open for reservations Tuesday - Saturday from 12noon - 8pm.

Perfect evening to celebrate a 20th anniversary whilst adhering to the rule of 6. The staff and food were impeccable. The contact before hand to ensure the meal was memorable was also perfect. We shall definitely be returning to the Seahorse, and subject to availability, the Cantina - a unique dining experience with access to the outstanding chef - asking questions and watching the chef in action.

Rather a disappointment. Service a bit hit and miss, food ok, limited choice menu, not the best value or experience. Dessert consisted of cheesecakes and cheese board options only. Surely it would be possible to serve a wider choice of desserts!

Had the pleasure of dining at Cantina to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family in a superb setting and perfectly hosted by Ben and Isobel. We all agreed this was the finest of dining experiences as a family particularly in view of Covid-19. Every aspect of the food was first class particularly the fresh monkfish. Some of us indulged ourselves with the succulent lamb chops as well! My wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary shortly after and took the opportunity to book at Al Mare which was once again an outstanding experience. We visited with one of our sons and had difficulty choosing the starters so ended up having 4 between us followed by beautifully cooked turbot or monfish. My wife's big birthday is circa 18 months away and we will definitely be looking to rebook Cantina but will be back at the refurbished Seahorse well before then.

Expensive for mediocre food. No ambiance. Poor service by young waitress. Website doesn’t explain limited menu ie all side dishes are cold, no coffee’s. I’m sure things will improve when the restaurant reopens however we will not be returning

The food was good but the limitations on the menu I.e. Vegetables with mains was limited and should have been reflected in the price as we could only eat in the tent which I think was overpriced.

Al Mare Food Drink, Service, Atmosphere all did a great job under new and challenging conditions, but we loved the Vibe and hope you will be able to repeat the experience next year. V f M a bit toppy but worth it for our 53rd Anniversary

Had a fabulous lunch, 4 of us sharing a big brill in a salt crust. We felt special. Quite small starter portions though. Fine for lunch but maybe a little too small in evening.

Great to eat in the temporary tent - a different atmosphere but just as great food and experience. But we look for to eating in the brilliant dining room when things are fixed!

The seahorse is to the southwest what the river cafe is to London. Use the best produce, don't mess around with it too much , use talented chefs to cook it (cooking over fire is a great skill) and let the food speak for itself. Add in a great atmosphere and lovely staff and service and you have a fantastic restaurant. Always love it!!.

Thoroughly enjoyed our return holiday visit to the Seahorse. Brought family members on this occasion and we were all impressed. Customer service and food were excellent. You have a great team representing you. Will return on our next visit to Devon. Review also posted earlier on Trip Advisor

Our recent experience was very disappointing, having been assured that the lamb cutlets were served pink it is difficult to describe what was actually offered. They were not just well done, without exaggeration they were cremated. I cannot believe that your staff could have ever allowed them to find their way into the restaurant. To their credit your staff were helpful and your manager was extremely apologetic and a substantial reduction was made to our bill.

We were a party of six and couldn't believe just how fantastic everything was. Coping with a pandemic is hard enough, flooded kitchens and loss of facilties just about impossible you'd think. Not a bit of it. A terrific menu delivered expertly by superb staff. All the things you expect of The Seahorse but under added pressure. You made our wedding anniversary celebration just that little bit more memorable. We all loved every minute and cannot thank you all enough.

Awesome experience as always. Think you should consider having the al mare experience again next summer! Very sorry to hear that Chabba (sorry I'm sure this is not the correct spelling!) is leaving - he's an absolute star and true gentleman. We will miss him - but the rest of the team are great too. Please don't lose Chris as well!
