Very nice covered market to have some relief from the heat of Victoria. Fragrant and colorful fruit market on the ground floor

“Fun Fishy and tastefull”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Spent a whole day here just browsing and getting to know the people. Loved seeing and buying the fish.

the spices and vegetables were wonderful and the sellers were very willing to let me try small pieces of fruit i had never seen, Bread fruit, Red Bananas wow. Had lunch upstairs in very quiet quaint restaurant. lovely service. Clothes and curio shops were reasonably priced and good value.

“Colorful but no blast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

Except the fact that the place is very colorful, it is also disappointing as you expect to be blast and not much happen sadly. First floor full of the usual souvenirs for all included package tourists that you can find all over the planet, they do not put a lot of efforts there. But a place you must avoid or only for a fresh fruit juice, is the Victoria market restaurant, hell on earth. You wait hours for an expensive very average meal, not to say bad, and the service is not friendly at all, even rude.
