A variety of fresh seafood available. The market is quite clean. There are restaurants just located at the second floor, which allow you to enjoy the seafood right away.

Last visited on 20 Feb 2014, 5th floor buffet, huge selection and even the wine was good. About 40USD per person, great selection. Bottom floor of building has a fish marker ( and there is more, much more, outside the building and down the street that runs around the harbor to the south).
