“Eat more fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The market sou round with gift, souvenir shop area and cheaper than out side. This fresh market you need to buy the fresh stuff and let the restaurant cook for you, the restaurant charge for the cooking service.

“KNOW HOW TO HAGGLE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great fresh food! Ok prices but better than by the beach. Make sure to remember what you ordered, with all the food coming out you might just miss out on a prawn or 4!

“so-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

If you like smelling like wet market after your dinner then go here.
The seafood they're selling is actually expensive and you need to pay the nearby eater to cook them for you.

“Totally fresh fish and lots of fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Easy as 1 -2 -3 - 4 :-)

Step 1: Pick your fish out at the central wet market. Be sure to negotiate for a good price. Lobster was waaaay too expensive. Red Snapper was great and cheap.

Step 2: Pick one of the surrounding restaurants to cook your selection. Can order it pan fried, grilled, steamed, etc. We requested our red snapper grilled -- YUM! Also selected a couple of sides (veggies and rice).

Step 3: Position your husband at a good table with a beer while the fish is being cooked (20 mins). Wife can browse the surrounding shops. :-) Hint: tip the guy who takes your order for a good table. There are LOTS of people so seating can be a hassle.

Step 4: Eat yummy, fresh fish and people watch other working through the same steps.

All in in, entertaining and delicious.
