Went there with a group of people and we had a wide selection of fish, prawn and lobster all spiced and cooked perfectly. The resturant has a nice view of the beach

We visited with out of country guests who wanted to try seafood. The prices were very high. The atmosphere and decor was dated. The service was poor. Scallops shrunk to pea size on arrival. The muscles tasted dirty. We will not be returning. Many better locations in Kuwait to take guests for seafood.

The Prawns (Shrimps) in creamy garlic sauce were divine. The calamari (octopus) was a tad chewy but sauce was delicious. The fish we chose was yummy and the accompanied was nice.

Went last night with a group of 9 people, restaurants has perfect location & atmosphere. Service is slow yet there was not too many people at the time, food is very good, price is fair. They should take care of their service, verity and ventilation (and bit smelly) .

I'm a big fan for seafood. I found the fish market is the best. Good resturant not too crowd. You can choose your favorite fish or any other sea creatures. the food is fresh and cooked as your wish. The decorations of the place not bad. Anyway it is a good place to visit.

We went there in a large group of friends and most of us didn't like the food. The fish is fresh but the way they make it is not good. Nothing is wrong with the staff, service, or the atmosphere; just the quality and taste of the food wasn't good for us. Also the prices were high.

I love fish markets, and this was one of the better ones. Entrances onto four sides and an abundance of all types of fish parculiar to the region, it is a place well worth visiting!!
