It's busy, noisy and colourful. You do have to queue for food, but it's worth the wait. It's a bit manic and can be a bit daunting to some I guess, but it is also a lot of fun and quite an experience. I didn't...More

Great place to have fun on a Friday evening after a day at the beach! Crowded and a bit hectic but delicious fish plates and cold banks! Try Pats place but arrive early or the queue will be 50 deep!

We had a great time at Oistins. Not only did we eat some scrumptious grilled fish, it was great way to meet and party with the local folk. Well worth a visit!

Some of the outlets are open everyday, but it is much quieter than a Friday. Some open just in the evening. You can usually eat there most days but it is very different from the Friday Fish Fry which is loud and very busy!
