We had a bad experience elsewhere and left after dinner but was still looking for dessert but there was not much open. We drove past and stopped and so glad we did... they were incredibly friendly and helpful especially as we were a group of 12. We had churros and white choc mousse. They even came and explained with a... More

We were hungry at lunchtime and were walking past restaurants and saw the paella being served. It looked good so we stopped in. We were a party of five and ordered two different paellas and some items from the tapas menu. Everyone left full and pleased.

A group of us (12) had a spontaneous trip to Seabean after a dreadful dinner at another restaurant. I have forgotten the name of our beautiful waitress who went above and beyond to make the night finish on a positive (including not letting the boss pay.. THANK YOU!!) We were blown away by the flavour of the desserts and the... More

The mini entree tapas on the board sounded interesting so ordered two, then later ordered main tapas dishes, bread and a decent bottle of white wine. Neither of these... More

The Seabean (named after the seeds or seed-containing fruits that drift through the oceans from one coast to another, for unknown reasons!) has a find range of tapas, including some specials each day, and also paellas. The crema catalana, while not really reminiscent of the dish in Spain, was a good way to end the meal. The wine list is... More

We had a great paella, cooked to perfection. The starters were very good too and the advice from the wait staff spot on. The restaurant allows byo wine at a fair corkage charge. Nice spot for a casual or special dinner.

We had an excellent seafood paella. The tapas on the other tables look tempting. Wine was good. I'd go again.
