Seahorse Restaurant restricts its dinner sittings to Monday through Saturday, and lunch is limited to Thursday and Fridays, making this a busy and sought-after spot – at The Spot in Randwick – for classic Italian fare in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Given the popularity of Seahorse, it’s fantastic that chef Stramandinoli and his team make a point of being able to accommodate all tastes, whether diners have dietary requirements, simple preferences, or they are connoisseurs of Italian looking for that special and hard-to-find culinary masterpiece.
Many of the foundational ingredients are handmade at Seahorse Restaurant’s St Paul’s Street premises, including the pasta – look out for the monthly specials like tarragon linguine with Queensland scallops and saffron sauce, chilli spaghetti with prawns, broccoli, bacon and mushrooms, or the organic linguine with Morton Bay bugs, baby spinach, extra-virgin olive oil, garlic and chilli. Whatever makes it to table at this beloved Italian restaurant at Randwick’s The Spot is as fresh as can be, whether or not you order up other specials like the grilled lemon sole or the chargrilled sirloin steak with homemade pepper sauce. That’s extra important considering the fact that while Seahorse serves all manner of Italian dishes, there is an obvious emphasis – as the name might suggest – on seafood fresh from Sydney’s fish markets, with popular dishes including seafood chowder and fresh oysters, Tasmanian smoked salmon, prawn Arrabiata, and Western Australian scampi. Next time you hit The Spot, book a table and dive headfirst into Seahorse’s fresh selection.
Perfect food at a very reasonable price. Service couldn't be faulted. A very pleasant experience. We'll be back. Pasquale and Karen were the perfect hosts.
We received fantastic service and delicious food. They were also very accommodating with menu changes for one of our guests. Would certainly recommend Seahorse for an enjoyable experience.
It was excellent. The service was great. The food was top notch. We even changed a couple of items on the menu and it was no trouble.
Great food and great customer service every time I've been there
The service was sufficient, however, it certainly wasn't cheerful service with a smile. The portions were a decent size. Everyone at my table ordered a fish so I cannot comment on the pasta. My son ordered the snapper fillet with chips instead of a salad. He did not eat the chips as he said they did not taste nice. My husband also ordered the snapper fillet. His piece of fish contained five bones. This should not happen at a seafood restaurant that markets itself as "fine dinning." I ordered the salmon fillet. It was a large but tasteless piece of fish. Based on the quality of the mains we decided to move to another restaurant for dessert.
Always reliable local Italian. Seafood pasta dishes the best bet - large portions, fresh seafood. And also allows BYO which is always a bonus. Good option if going to Ritz cinema across road.
Great food and friendliness staff a shame they ran out of Mortan bay bugs. Very family friendly venue they accommodated for our pram. Go early before its too packed
Food very good as always, with good sized portions were fresh pasta and seafood the best option. However service a little slow at times during the evening.
Nice ambient restaurant. Foods are fabulous with friendly and nice staff. Worth to try. Good portion, felt very full. Restaurant is at great location, opposite the cinema.
High quality seafood pasta dishes in particular, and loved the sticky date pudding desert. Added to BYO and proximity to Ritz cinema, makes a great neighbourhood restaurant
We appreciated the friendly and efficient service. They did a good job on a very busy night and the veal scaloppini and fritto misto were both delicious.
Delicious food and good atmosphere. We have always gone past here and never gone it, we will be going back. The salmon and mash is highly recommend
It was OK, I had better...A bit slow for the food to arrive. The waiters were too unexperienced, and price, I think to much for what we had.
It was so obvious that the restaurant is under-staff. The entrees were good, but the mains took quite awhile. It was presented variably across the table.
Nice food good menu selectionGreat service would go back again.
