Near the port, you can pick you fish and they grill it for you. Go for a hole fish instead of small crustacés (lobster and other small shell fish have less meat and can be expensive). They grilled them perfectly.

The fish on display was varied and looked really fresh, ranging from sea anenomes to langoustines to fresh scampi through to sardines and flat fish. There were also shark, dog fish and red snapper and they all looked and smelled really fresh. The lobster and crab were still snapping! We ate a variety of fish, beautifully cooked and reasonably priced but I avoided the salad and my husband ate his! We won't go into details but I would strongly recommend you avoid the salad. Eat the fish not the salad and then I would recommend it.
