Dartmouth Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


It would be hard not to be charmed by this little town on the banks of the Dart estuary. A tiny port surrounded by elegant buildings, paved lanes bordered by white houses with flowers, a coastal path, exuberant greenery and a large marina all contribute to the appeal of Dartmouth, protected from seaborne assault by its proud fortress which stands on a spur overlooking the water.

Restaurants Dartmouth

  • River Restaurant within a Michelin recommended hotel (or restaurant) 

    Sandquay Rd GB - Dartmouth TQ6 9PH

  • Rockfish Quite comfortable restaurant 

    8 South Embankment GB - Dartmouth TQ6 9BH

    Buzzy 'beach shack' style eatery run by a chatty team. Good old comfort dishes arrive in paper-lined baskets and rely on sustainable produce. Closely set tables have paper cloths proclaiming 'fish so fresh tomorrow's are still in the sea'.

  • Seahorse Comfortable restaurant 

    5 South Embankment GB - Dartmouth TQ6 9BH

    Smart restaurant in a lovely spot on the embankment; sit outside looking over the estuary or inside, beside the glass-walled kitchen. Seafood orientated menus have a Mediterranean bias; whole fish cooked on the Josper grill are a hit.

  • Laughing Monk Quite comfortable restaurant 

    Totnes Rd GB - Strete TQ6 0RN

    Built in 1839 as the village schoolhouse; the original wooden floor and a huge stone fireplace remain. Tasty, traditional dishes feature meats from nearby farms and seafood from local waters; cooking is unfussy and uses classical pairings.

  • Royal Castle Restaurant within a Michelin recommended hotel (or restaurant) 

    11 The Quay GB - Dartmouth TQ6 9PS
