Crazy busy during lunch. Unpleasantly busy. But if you get there earlier or a bit after lunchtime, it's great. Huge selection of seafood. Fresh. Reasonably priced. Be ready to fight off the seagulls and ibis as they get aggressive at the outside tables.

If you like fresh sea food this is the place for you. Beware it closes at 4pm each day and it is tricky to get to. But it is worth the effort

This is an interesting market to see the amazing varieties of sea creatures and some can be cooked up for you on the spot or wrapped to take home for a feast. There are also delicious eats ready for your appetite

The disappointment when reading this place was how small it is. I googled to see if I had found the wrong place or might there be other sections to it. There are something like 5 or 6 shops within it. That's it. I had thought...More

Good venue for a quick bite if you fancy some seafood. Very juicy oysters and fresh sashimi. Lobster was a bit of a let down as it was overcooked and tough. Very crowded at mealtimes, and a lot more expensive than I expected being straight...More

Try the Light Rail there is a stop right alongside the market. Otherwise a taxi from where you are would not be too expensive
