Not missing any market as such on my trips, I have seen a lot of different fish markets around the world, and this one is impressively clean and organized. Though the selection is not that impressive, there are definitely seasonal surprises. A hidden falafel place is the most interesting of all. In the fish market building by the East Entrance... More

If you like fresh local fish and gulf prawns this is the place to go. The vendors are friendly though not all speak English by any means. Prices as with most markets depend on the seasonal catches. When the Prawn season is in full swing these are an excellent buy. You can pay a bit extra to have the prawns... More

The smell, crowd and noise kills the ratings. Other than that, it has a great varieties of fresh sea stuff to buy. Just don't forget to bargain as it works. I love the shrimps and crabs.
