We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service was delightful. Could not have been more attentive. The food was delicious and definitely made us smile which is always a good barometer. It was very well judged cooking and absolutely delivered and when it does that you do not think about the price. It is priceless. I also had something I had... More

Back again after a couple or more years and glad to see that there's still some good cooking. The fish offerings are good, and service is as good as it can be in a very packed, small area. Desserts were lovely, and nice to see some attention paid over not having the cheese offering as requested, but sorted in a... More

We recently ate an evening meal at The Seahorse and I have not got enough good things to say about it. The decor/atmosphere was like stepping back in time... in France. The atmosphere was dimly-lit, soothing, old-school hospitality with staff who knew their produce and took pride in delivering it. Immaculate staff and surroundings with not a hint of pretence....

Down from London for a few days staying in Kingswear. Found this restaurant on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We had a starter of scallops which I could have quite happily eaten again and again! The mains of octopus and my husbands John Dory were equally good. The wine list is reasonably priced but could do with a... More

My wife and I ate dinner here when visiting Dartmouth for a short break. The food was simply superb. The freshest seafood simply and sympathetically cooked.....sublime! The deserts also do not disappoint. Excellent selection of wines available. The ambience added to the overall experience and the service was impeccable with one, unfortunate, aberration, when a young gentleman, who had been... More
