Exactly as expected for the type of food. A large buffet full of fishes and seafood to choose from. Nothing really exciting though. I was expecting a "something more" The service is quite slow and the decor is a bit quaint.

It is a market, not a restaurant. It is very big, with huge and exotic fishes, and a lot of people buying, specially afternoon, after the boats arrive to the harbour. Most of the buyers, has an helper to catch the fish. Very alife place.

I was out with some friend and we were wondering what to eat, one of my friend told us that he was recommended Fish Market; I have had a previous experience at the place and didn't enjoy it as much. I tried it again and we had a great lunch, it was a feast eating Fried Fish, Shrimps and Crabs.... More

Location- right next time Kuwait towers, on the beach. Just perfect to take a slow walk by he sea after dinner. Concept- choose the fresh seafood according to the size you like and get it cooked you like with the d'aide you prefer. Cannot be better than that... Price- price is not too high. 6-8 KD per head, depending on... More

We visited the abu halifa branch and it was simply awesome. The indian waiter helped us to get our fish made in indian spices, loved everything from food to ambience to service.

We had lunch, this being my second time at the restaurant, the first time was at night and the restaurant was a lot cooler. This time it was so hot and the sun was shining on my friend in which he ended up switching chairs to avoid the direct sun. It was already hot so when the Caesar salad came... More

All is perfect, many varieties of cooking style and flavors. Waiters should be more aware of the available cooking style. They either should be good speaking Arabic or English, but bad on both is not an option.

I am a pure vegetarian, but the photographer in me sought out this destination, to capture same vivid pictures. The market premises is huge. The fish market is in the central hall. One side is full of stalls selling daily needs and one side is reserved for meats. There are four rows of shops selling variety of seafood and another... More
