A special market place where you could choose your own seafood, bargain at the price you wanted and request the restaurant to cook at your choice! However, do not find that the seafood is worth it as it seems more costly than other places.... But the food was very yummylicious thou!! :)

Its a nice place to eat when you are looking for fresh seafoods. Price is expensive to me (compared to what I buy for my restaurant). But no choice, they all have the same price. Just need to haggle a bit for many orders. Since we are 15 in a group and my budget was just 2000, 500 per kilo... More

If your going to spend any time on this small tropical island you are going to visit this place. It has all the usual tourist stuff you can buy. Be sure to ask for a lower price on just about anything they sell. Lots of places to eat and a good place to people watch.

Does not cater as much to the tourists as D'Mall does, but still a place for tourists. Lots of little restaurants and shops, as well as the wet market selling seafood and meat. Meat stalls are closed in the evenings. Try some caramelised BBQ'd banana while you're there!

If you are not familiar with the seafood price, you will probably get chopped. Live lobster is priced at top price. You might feel lucky to get up to 30% discount after long bargain, but don't get too happy yet. Bring your seafood to nearby restaurant for cooking service for reasonable fee, some will help you weight the seafood, and... More

Fantastic, a little out of the way market! Fresh Fish - good restaurants around (to many to choose from) that will cook your dinner for you - Brilliant experience! And of course the rest of the market, quieter than the mall and nice people (and a little cheaper too)

I've been to many seafood markets around the world and Talipapa is one of the best with the unique ability to buy fresh seafood and take it a restaurant 5 meters away to cook it for you. I bought the biggest colorful Lobster I could find asked the Cafe to "Cookamalobster!" which they gladly did with a perfect lemon butter... More
