Pescaderia de Punta del Diablo is an excellent place to buy fresh - VERY FRESH - fish if you choose to cook for yourself while visiting this lovely little tourist town...

A family-owned & -operated business, their cleanliness & friendliness will impress you!

I bought the LAST of the flounder they had available, but as I was leaving (with my bags full of HUGE bay scallops & a kilo of shrimp, plus the flounder), I saw 3 of the biggest flounder I've ever seen in my life - hanging from the back of the motor scooter that had just pulled into the driveway, along with a few more fish... Wow! They had to be at least a foot wide & 2-1/2 feet long! Giant flounder...

Visit them & ask for: 1) lenguado (flounder); 2) vieras (bay scallops); 3) camarones (shrimp) - they have with the heads & shells on "completo" or "entero", with heads off, shells on "sin cabeza," and just the meats "pulpo." They have a wide range of other fish as well, including octopus "pulpo."

Very well worth the trip! Speak some Spanish, as they do not speak English...

We shop there regularly & have NEVER had a bad fish...

HINT: If you see a sign "Cerrado/Closed" on the door, knock anyway, because they live out back & if you're here in winter (off-season) they are always open, but the sign always says "Cerrado."
