“Delicious lunch & fresh to buy too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We read great things about the food, and in our quest to find fresh caught fish we could cook this was one of the few stores we could find on line that we could a)find and was b)open as we weren't interested in shopping chains. We like to buy local.

Lunch was a fresh catch plate & fresh catch sandwich. Mahi was the catch, prep was exquisite - I can't think of a better word. Every bite was melting-tender and juicy, just the right grill touch ( touch of crunchy but not crusty). Plate came trad with rice and mac salad, sandwich on a bun with Maui chips (a Frito-lay product so the only thing NOT made local). Absolutely worth the time, and cheaper price than many here in Paia (certainly better than our lunch at P Fish Market last week). Once done lunch, we went over to the fresh counter to get supper. 6 or 7 varieties of fish, all fresh from the boat. We took monchong (resisting temptation to take Everything!) which was lovely at supper. Hope to go back for some of the cold preps, ceviche & poke, and more fresh.

“Very Dissapointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We thought this was fish market. Had a few filets prices at $26 per pound. Went to Times supermarket instead and bought some Mahi Mahi which we grillled. Skip this as a "fish market".

“best shrimp tacos, ever. best poke, ever. best ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

simply fabulous freshly grilled shrimp or fish on steaming tacos -- omg, I'm salivating here! and the fresh fish sold right there -- with fresh fish, delicious poke & young men knowing their fish and giving sound advice with a smile.

ughm .... the only if is that one of the cooks sometimes skimps on fish and ingredients for tacos -- it happened to us twice (the guy taking order was a geeky glassed looking dude)

PS. sorry for stealing the salsa, couldn't resist!

“Really good & tasty fish tacos - YUM!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Due to its location in a strip mall, and not an attractive one at that - we typically would not make the effort to stop. However, we heard that the fish market had fabulous fish tacos - and that is indeed a fact! You get a generous piece of fresh fish with just the right amount of seasonings (& not the breaded version which we don't care for). They are made to order and so tasty. We highly recommend!

“Fish Market? More like heaven!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

When one talks quality and fresh you cannot beat this market and restaurant. Our first visit was just for a light lunch of their fish chowder and seafood chowder with a fish taco and a buffalo shrimp taco. OMG we could not believe the quantity of fish and seafood in the chowders. The tacos were absolutely amazing and quite tasty. The second visit was the market side of small heaven. Fresh ahi tuna salad, lobster salad, poke (pronounced pokee), fish ceviche and seafood salad. On our first visit we watched a fisherman brining a catch of yellow fin tuna right off,the boat. OMG how much fresher can you get. Not even frozen at all. Just right out of the water. Yum, yum, yum.
