It's expensive to eat here. Also, at this stage with construction next door, the outside seating area isn't pleasant. BUT... the food is amazing. You select what you want, how much you want, and then you leave the magic to the chef. A seafood platter, soup, shark in a light curry sauce, grilled veggies in oyster sauce, seabream served with...

Recommended by Marriott Hotel. Difficult to find. In my opinion overrated. Food was good and definitely fresh. Selecting, ordering and cooking are not easy/

I like the location and ambiance - having been here several times in the past. It is one of my wife's favourite places to go in Abu Dhabi. Me not so much. But much of that is to do with the bill at the end of the meal which can be horrific unless you're good at guessing weights and the... More

Actually the 2nd time at the Fishmarket and our love at first sight has been repeated again. Ok the design of the restaurant is not the best but still we enjoyed the overall atmosphere and typical ambiance of these restaurants we can find in vacations in tropical seaside destinations. Food wise: excellent! Fresh, very qualitative. This kind of food we... More

Had an excellent dinner at Fishmarket, including the nicest fish I've ever eaten. Setting is very cool, reminds you of a beach hut restaurant in Thailand, with every fish you can imagine lining the market area. While you ordered drinks, complimentary fish goujons and dips were provided - nice touch. The waiter then took us around and explained how everything... More

If you can stomach seeing lots of whole fish on the counter and make your own selection then this is a great place to heat. Very helpful staff help you select the best combinations of fish and sauces and also choose a fresh selection of vegetables. Excellent all round place.
