Actually visited on a Tuesday.

We were told it was very busy on a Friday/Saturday, so the entertainment was not on. It is rustic, but that only added to it. Please go for an amazing experience.

We actually went to the fish fry on Saturday, since we were told it is when the locals go and we didn't have time on the Friday. We were pleased that it was booming with people, music, and delicious food! We watched the sunset from the beach after walking past the fish market and ate at Chillin' and Grillin' (recommended...

This was a great experience. Many food vendors as well as people selling souviners. The vendors try to get you to sit in thier tables while walking by investigating as to where you would like to eat. But they aren't rude. And are helpful in explains what they are serving. My best taste of the night was the fish cakes.... More

If you are in town, you almost have to go...but go late (the party doesn't get going until at least 8) and don't expect the live music that you've been promised or a really great meal. You will get to sit at a big table and make friends with your dining companions and it is definitely something to see, though.... More

This is a must to see and experience. Walking distance from Sea Breeze (20 minutes) and out on the Pier we saw the Turtles being fed fish scraps even spotted Big Ben 200lb 80 year old Turtle, they can live to around 200.

This was our 2nd trip to Oistins and we were much more impressed this time. We followed some advice given to us and went early. We looked for the stalls that had the longest lines and most number of locals. Our choice did not disappoint. We both had the grilled fish and they were absolutely delicious as was the coleslaw...

It's mad , hot , smelly and very noisy so as long as your prepared go for it. This is a mix of locals and tourists coming together to eat, drink and dance... If you like medium to fine dining do not come to eat. Just visit and book a restaurant in the Gap for later . If you do... More

Love Fridays at Oistins. Just a short bus tide away from the Gap. Great atmosphere and great freshly cooked food.
