The fish market is well known for its fresh seafood. If it’s your first time, it’s best to go with a local so you learn the prices. Prices are sometimes ‘adjusted’ for foreigners. Crayfish and crab should only be bought while it’s still alive. The...More

The new fish market is a huge improvement on the old location. Be sure to ask for the prices of everything at the restaurants before ordering. You buy you fish or clams or shrimp at posted prices in the market itself. Food is really good.
