Squaremeal Review of The Seahorse Restaurant ?

This well-liked and “lovely” seafood restaurant has the kind of warmth you might associate with a bedded-in, family-run eatery on an Italian backstreet – not a Devon waterfront. It’s a “pleasure to eat here”, noted one reader who was quick to praise the “exceptional food and excellent service”. Proprietor and fish guru Mitch Tonks has positioned himself as the natural successor to Rick Stein’s crown in these parts, and he certainly knows all about freshness. Much of the daily catch comes from nearby Brixham, and the kitchen treats its seasonal haul with due respect: carpetshell clams are paired with braised pork, sherry and peas; hake is cooked in the Basque style with garlic and romesco sauce; turbot is presented in classic fashion with hollandaise sauce. Elsewhere, monkfish and John Dory are grilled over the fire, alongside Tuscan-style cuts of beef. Italy also looms large when it comes to desserts such as zabione with walnuts and frutilli or poached figs with lemon verbena, Ricotta and pistachio. The extensive fish-friendly wine list is vigorous in its support of European vineyards.
