Mercado de Mariscos, Panama City

2.4
For fish so fresh it’s nearly flapping amid the buzzing atmosphere of a city’s fresh fish market, head to Mercado de Mariscos. Tuna, snapper, lobster, octopus--everything on offer is yours to take home for the right price, or have cooked to perfection in the authentic fish restaurant located upstairs. The fresh ceviche on sale from many of the vendors is a tasty and very popular delicacy; grab one to go and take a walk around the busting market, which overlooks the harbor.

  • Counted by the same people who work there, the seafood they sell is cool, but once already you can not sell it by carrying a couple of days, then sell it to restaurants and already is no longer fresh, so eat in any of them is an adventure of risk. Any local who know will tell you that you alejeis. Also the prices are 5 times more higher that at any restaurant in the area, better go to another site. It is all off a site of those where crowd of people you will haunt so you feel in your restaurant. A terrible experience. It is located between the coastal belt and the old town, so you will surely pass through, but not fall into the trap of eating here, if not you can cook buying fresh in the market, ignore it and go to another site.

  • Good place to be familiar with different kind of fish and a different kind of seafood if you love seafood that’s the place you must go visit and see. there is also a restaurant attached to the market ...  more »
  • What are improving, reshaping and adapting, hopefully look good. Parking is impossible, at night take taxi, it is sometimes complicated, dark and tardecito might care. The smell at any time of the day is strong, nauseous and insoportobable, at times. It is a popular site, with loud music, sound at the time 10 different songs, almost all vallenato. There are many young people... all Venezuelans, trying to win customers for its local, sometimes uncomfortable by the frantic insistence. The food, although it has reasonable prices, it is not the best. Pedi a snapper that turned out with not very good smell... I could not finish, this added to the noise, the general smell, the darkness out, more the venec, although almost all well-like young... turned out to be a disappointing site...
