About The Seahorse
Our restaurant specializes in seafood and is situated on the banks of the River Dart in Dartmouth. We are lucky to have some of the best fish and shellfish in the world landed here.
We believe that seafood of this quality requires skillful but simple prepartion to enjoy it as it's best and this is at the heart of what we do. Much of the seafood we serve at our restaurant is roasted over an open charcoal fire with just a few herbs and our own olive oil. We also serve a number of specilaities including our roasted monkfish, scallops roasted with white port, black rice and, Spaghetti with our local seafood, for those wishing not to eat seafood we have some meat choices including our legendary rib of angus beef roasted over the fire.
Our current menu features a variety of species depending on daily availability. In particular on our menu at the moment is cuttlefish, small squid ,turbot, sole & mussels which are grown in Elberry cove just a few miles away. During the summer months you may enjoy some of the finest lobster, brown crab and spider crab here which are prepared fresh each day. In addition to the wonderful seafood we have deliveries each week from the markets of Milan and Paris and and currently we offer baby artichokes from Brittany, Burratta from Andria in Puglia and Heirloom tomatoes grown in the UK.
We have an extensive wine list of over 180 bins starting at £19, they are 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.
We offer you a warm atmoshpere and friendly service here . Families are most welcome to dine with us and if there is any other attention you may require whilst eating with us please let us know.
Really lovely evening.
You never fail to wow us with tour delicious food , great atmosphere and epic service . Thank you
Have been meaning to try here for a number of years, and had big expectations! Had a wonderful meal, food was top notch, service was pitched just right and atmosphere was really great...so nice when a high ended restaurant is above expectataions...not cheap but worth every penny!
Lovely evening as always. Had a fantastic meal and some great wines and champagne. The service was excellent I would like to bring attention to Daniel the Venezuelan waiter. He made the evening for us. Shame Mitchel wasn’t there as it would have been nice to say hello. Miles and Karen Orme.
Look forward to the next time
We had the most wonderful meal (for my wife’s birthday). The food was superb and the staff excellent. Thank you
Thoroughly enjoyable meal, excellent fresh fish, good service from the helpful staff. My only little suggestion would be regarding the cheese course at the end of the meal. I was disappointed that there was only one British Cheese & that I had one extremely tiny, very over crisp piece of toasted bread which was nothing buy open holes anyway so I really didn't have Cheese and Biscuits.
A delicious meal from start to finish. The Mussels were gorgeous and we loved the zabione which was perfect. The luncheon menu was tempting but we decided to treat ourselves to the a la carte and were not disappointed.
Our party of six again had a fantastic time. We come here for lunch every year when the Dartmouth Music festival is on. Great food, great service and lovely friendly environment, thanks all, we'll be back, Jim
Great meal and atmosphere as always.

Fab service & food. Thank you for a great night
The food, wine and service were excellent, even better than I remember on our last visit to Dartmouth 4.5 years ago. By far the best place in town - keep it up!
We had a great evening. Lovely food and service. Thank you.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and superb food. Would definitely recommend.
so good we don't want to eat anywhere else ..... except Rockfish occasionally ! We also meet such lovely fellow diners.
Fantastic lunch highly recommended
as a fishing boat skipper I know my fish, and consider myself and wife pretty fair cooks! both our fish dinners were cooked to perfection, and the 2005 chateauneuf du pape, (we brought our own) excelent. the white Dan recomended was also tops. our first visit, definately not our last !(Beowulf )
This was a special occasion for us and it was not your fault that there was a delay on serving food caused by a power failure. However, given this is the hospitality industry there could have been a hospitable drink on the house or some such to tide us over the delay. This would have provided a happier memory of the evening.
Lovely food, ambience and friendly staff. What more could one ask for
We were welcomed with a smile and with warm courtesy. The seating is suitably spaced to give sufficient privacy, and by booking in advance, we had a lovely window seating. The service was excellent and help with the wine was perfect to match the food we selected. The appetisers of scallops on the shell with garlic butter and white port with a crumb top and cured brill were superb as were the bass and dover sole dishes that followed. Cannot praise the food enough, nor the service.
Recommended by friends, absolutely fantastic food and service.
Very pleasant lunch. good food, very attentive service. Took a way a bottle of Joe's gin. Looking forward to a return visit.
Wonderful lunch- food, wine and service excellent
