The Fishmarket is very, clean and the service is really great. All fish and sea food are fresh, and the food is really amazing. I will definitely come back every time i visit Abu Dhabi.

“Great location and good (local) value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Right on the beach, warm, moonlit night outside dining with the sea and the new tall towers for contrast. Liked the complimentary basket of fried fish instead of bread!

“Different Experience in Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

The best thing in dining in the Fish-market is you shop all the ingredients you like from the sea food to vegetable, then you decide how it's cooked, with the that goes with it

“Good place, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

The restaurants is very nice, good attentive staff especially by the managers. The chef cooked a really nice meal, with good flavours and heat from the wok. The concept of selecting fresh food and ordering your way of cooking style is unique.

“Old place but still good ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Very old place, unique concept in Abu Dhabi , the food you buy it fresh from the display and they cook it for you live , service normal but they don't make you comfortable because they don't smile .
Seems the staff been for so long time there in their comfort zone area and they don't have anergy and motivation to smile .
Outside seating really outdate it , tables, chairs , lights ..etc
Need to invest on such Beatiful concept to make it a live like it used to be before .
It's worth the visit for the location and food test . Nothing else
