Me and my family visited the fish market in the afternoon, about an hour before closing time. However, the seafood still looked fresh, and the sellers were nice. The price was affordable for the amount of foods per serving. I would love to visit here...More

Came here by Light Rail as there is a stop right outside the Fish Market. Really fresh seafood. Highlights were the Black Lip Abalone, Snow Crab with noodles and Arctic Clam Sashimi.

The place always crowded doesn't matter what time you are there. Filled with tourist and little local but a great place for various seafood under one roof. Get ready to pay and enjoy.

Based on the reviews we read about coming here we got there right when it opened. It was not too busy and the amount of fresh fish is enough to blow you away. We bought some oysters and some sushi and sat on the benches...More

A working fish market complete with seagulls fork lift trucks and containers. Wind your way to get through that and the reward is the freshest fish and sea food you could wish for. The surroundings as basic as any cafe but the dining gourmet along...More

Pretty much a complete tourist trap. We went here thinking we could get some good food and see a thriving, exciting fish market. Worst 2 hours we spent getting there and back and eating. We ate at the first restaurant in the main market place,...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
