A fantastic fish market! Excellent fresh sea food and fantastic cooked items. But be aware, it's a CASH ONLY place. They do have an ATM on the premises.

sorry I didnt see this sooner. They generally do not take a long time filling orders. They seem to be well organized and ready for a rush. I would say 10 mins or so
