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.

We enjoyed the hospitality greatly. The lady that served was friendly and knowledgeable. All the staff were attentive. We think that the fish should have come with some decent vegetables, rather than a purée of cavolo Nero. To eat a plate of fish without sufficient accompaniment, wasn’t exactly enjoyable or what we were expecting from fine dining. The fish was lovely and cooked well, as were the starter scallops It was disappointing considering the price. We expected more.

As fantastic as ever. The last night before closure for Tier 3 so a tinge of sadness. As always the staff rose to the occasion though. Kit Royale and a Joe’s gin as aperitifs. Fritto Misto and anchovies followed by the most beautiful Monkfish and turbot. I especially liked the sides too. Tiramisu to finish, all washed down with a Seahorse rose. This restaurant never fails to deliver. Here’s to it opening again in better times.

Everything was faultless. Top service, delicious food and a good choice of cocktails, wine and drinks. The staff were delightful and had been more than happy to extend our gift voucher which had expired at the beginning of the first lockdown - a very charming, professional and appreciated gesture! Thank you all for a superb visit - we shall definitely be back very soon. Well done all of you.... 10 out of 10

Certainly both the best food and service of 2020. Impressed at the timing, the attention, albeit not invasive and the quality of the cooking.

Very enjoyable evening with fantastic service, gorgeous food and a great atmosphere. The only compromise for me was with the wine. I like to drink red (even with fish) but I do prefer a slightly lower abv than the wines that were available in my price range. A purely personal point. Thanks for a really special evietience. I do hope to return to the Seahorse if ever I’m back in Dartmouth

A basket of bread with the meal (as they do in France) would complete the experience - it’s a shame to leave any of the expertly prepared sauce on the plate.
