Now that spring is back,what better place to have lunch than Seahorses. Food is very good,service friendly and efficient. Menu small but that guarantees fresh products. New parasols make for a colourful setting. A must go to place

I was there on a week day for lunch, and a bit on the later side of lunch, so it was very quite. The food was good, but I found it a bit expensive.

We were on a Sunday outing, visiting antique stores, when we stopped here. The food was FABULOUS. The restaurant was bright and cheerful and the service was prompt and attentive. We will be back. We may even rent a couple of kayaks before we eat.
