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.
