Good vibe and local tradition...
Feb. 2020
Arrived late in the evening and weren't sure if the place was still open or not.
To our surprise the market was full of people, both buying stuff and simply hanging out.
Authentic local atmosphere with great choice of seafood and fish of all shapes and colours, well organized and not too aggressive approaching the clients.
We were able to browse around and take a close look at the trade. Friendly sellers didn't mind us taking pictures at all which was nice.
Apart from various shopping malls spread around the city, that's where one can meet the locals, I guess.
We followed up having dinner in Gandofly, one of the most popular restaurants in the area. Lovely experience despite of the slow(ish) service and some of the flavours we're not that familiar with.
Come and see with your own eyes what Al Mina is like, your time won't be wasted!

A nice food and memories
Dec. 2019
I liked the idea of the place , it is well organized and clean compared to similar markets in several cities , the options available there are great and the idea of buying then cooking is nice , recommended for foodie travelers you should go there , better to divide your portions to be cooked in several ways.

Great fun and fabulous fish
Feb. 2020
We went to the fish market just to take it in. Ended up buying some fish from one of the vendors. He then led us to a restaurant, where the fish was taken from us and a modest fee paid to have it cooked. The restaurant was basic but fine and served the fish after a short wait and provided water and a couple of other traditional dishes. All great value, super fresh and really interesting experience.

Unforgettable experience
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Still intact from the traditions of the past, yet, getting into a modern stage, as we speak, with multiple projects on sight, to develop this area into a touristic one, as it is not get into that point luckily and again...yet! I have been to many, many fish markets in my life but this one is the absolute best!!! not commercial! sooo clean!!!!no fish smell at all!!! Rich and fresh products from the arabian golf still available by mass such as kingfish, tuna, baraccuda, local clams ans mussels, seabreen, seabass, squids... great to catch a fish and cook it at home but if you decide to consume on sight, the extra charges might change your mind since the restaurants aligned as a beuatiful promenade, will charge you for cooking and service, fyi.

Very colorful place in Abu Dhabi
Dec. 2019
We visit there with my family. It is one of the most colorful places in Abu Dhabi. Even if you don`t like see producsts but you want see Eastern Market, want bargain for the price and see another Abu Dhabi visit here. We buy 2 fishes (to be honestly can`t remember names) and the price was 90 dirhams for both. But we bargain and pay for it 70 dirhams. Very nice place.

A bit of fun in-between other stuff in Abu Dhabi
Oct. 2019
The fish market was truly amazing and open to the public - although it's not really a tourist ‘destination’ ! People were very happy to talk to us and let us ask them about their ‘fish’ and take photos. Amazing variety of seafood - from sharks and giant prawns to sea bass.

Great place to buy fish
Aug. 2019
This is excellent place to buy all kinds of sea fish including Crab, Lobsters, tiger prawns and even sharks. For a small fee you can have the fish cleaned as well. There are a few restaurants that can cook the fish as well for you for a small fee. Even if you don't want to buy wish it is a great market to explore
