I have seen some fancy fish markets but never one quite like this! All the fish is very artfully and meticulously displayed. Every kind of fish you have every heard of and plenty that you haven't! They don't cook for you, but plenty of stalls...More

My wife wanted to cook crab so we went to the Fish Market. If you are visiting from a cruise ship, then no need to stop by because they will not cook your seafood. This is not one of those markets where you can buy...More
