“The Best of the Fish Snacks”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Perhaps this should be renamed the Tardis, the uninspiring entrance leads into a large dining area with quite beautiful tiled walls and decorated with a huge collection of examples of arabic calligraphy many in a whimsical nature.

There is no menu the choice is whatever fried fish they decide to give you. It will certainly be fresh and the cost next to nothing.

Perhaps better of a lunchtime than at night.

“The best cheapo fish snack restaurant”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Cheap and cheerful, fresh and well cooked. I can't say much more. You can get a huge plate of a variety of fish, with calamares and prawns on the plate too, for two people for less than a fiver along with bread and a dipping sauce. It's fried in a thin batter and it's well done, not greasy. The fish is fresh and the premises, while humble, are clean. The types of fish change according to what has been landed the day before but there is usually sole on the plate and nearly always the squid rings and prawns. Additional types might be shark, conger eel, "sabre" I don't know what it is in English) or "rouget". There are other offerings on the menu too, but I think the mixed fish plater is the best deal. It's a bit hard to find, so try looking at the map of town and orient yourself before setting out using the address above. Once you're near, you'll see the sign for the place pointing down the little side road the restaurant is situated on.

Well worth a try for those on a budget wanting somewhere safe to eat or for those who want to just have a nice, cheap meal.
