Restaurant with friendly and helpful service. Nice terrace. Come early (6.30 p.m.) to enjoy the sunset in the frontrow. Some moskitos, so bring your repellent or ask the waitors/waitresses. Very good fish dishes. Quite expensive catch of the day.

The food is terrific, we love the service and if you catch fish and bring it, they will prepare it and serve it to you. They also sell fish that they have bought from the fishermen each afternoon. We stop by after 3 pm to see what freshly caught fish they have.

Amazing waterfront dining! We did lunch and drinks (A Smiling Nation) was my drink of choice and it was perfect for the hot day. Tropical but not too sweet. Lamb Capriaccio was mouth watering. Served with cibatta bread ( 2 good size pieces) completely covered with the lamb. Arugula and bib lettuce with olives and feta cheese covering that. Pine... More

We had lunch one day and it was all great! So we returned today for an early lunch and found doors closed at 11.30, why do you not open until 12.00? Divers are earlybirds:-)

It Rains Fishes is easily accessed, and worth the effort. The food is fresh and delicious. During busy times, the staff can get a bit overwhelmed. But this can be borne with a glass of your favorite and more time to enjoy the view.

We dined at It Rains Fishes on Monday 26th September. Lovely location and very attentive staff. We were given a nice small portion of Tuna sashimi to share at no charge which was very nice. I had the Catch of the day which was freshly caught Tuna lightly grilled (medium rare) with a creole sauce and small portion of local... More

We saw all the good reviews for It Rains Fishes and were looking forward to dinner. The food wasn't bad, but definitely on the high side for prices and the quality could be found at other places. We had try to go on the Fish Market night, but we missed it being too late. We were also surprised as the... More
