We went there for dinner; the location is next to Kuwait towers on the seaside, good ambience and interior. Seafood is so fresh with different ways of cooking according to your taste. Staff are so friendly and helpful. I think the prices are reasonable and I recommend it

Many people spoke about the Fish Market restaurant so I went to try it with my mother & boys. I didn't make any reservations since it was a week day and didn't expect it to be full. I was greeted by a hostes and escorted to a table. I told them that I prefer another table to avoid the crowd.... More

Yes, fresh fish, cooked in your preferred way, but not a big variety in the menu, over priced and over rated as there many other better places for Sea Food around Kuwait.

Walk up to the counter, take a look at the day's catch, select your choice, and they'll prepare it for you the way you like it most . . . and that could include the entire fish! Large restaurant, plenty of space, smells a little fishy, and they need a better selection of sides.
