  • Many choices, no fresh fish. Immersion in the fishermen authenticity guaranteed, with the friendliness of the Portuguese merchants. Impeccable hygiene. No smell, which is rare in a fish market!

  • Located on the waterfront at the fish market is very good and varied local fishing has foster sardine and mackerel wild bar excellent and you can find nice piece between 1.3 and 2 kg

  • Re-fuel for people that like to fish and shellfish. So if you want to buy (you will find variety, with very good quality and competitive prices), as if they just want to stroll among the stalls and enjoy the colors of your goods, the hustle and bustle of people and the ability of those who shipped the fish. It is pretty small, so if you are visiting (not buy) is necessary to do so educated mind and not interfere with the activity of the place (which is the sale of goods)

  • If you like fresh fish then this is the place. Good selection of local catch. Most of what you'd expect to see. No bargains but cheaper than supermarket. Staff very helpful cleaning and preparing the fish for you. Appears to be closed Sundays but open every or most other days, but get there in morning. Still plenty of fish left at 11am though typically.
  • Fresh fish and seafood. Doesn't get better than this. They also clean the fish on request.
  • full of fresh fish. a tiny lovely market
  • I see most reviewers went to the market to have a look instead to buy... it looks interesting, for sure. But to buy?! At the fruit market, as it was obvious we were tourists, they made us taste some good looking cherries, and pushed us to buy, in the end we decided to buy some. However, they filled the bag from an under the counter box, and didn't let me see the weight. We were sad to discover at home the cherries we got were perished, we had to throw it away. From the four pieces of 'viennoiserie' I bought at the bakery, two were dry, must have been 2-3 day old already. It's disappointing to feel exploited as tourists, and to experience this short term view on business. I rather buy both fruits and bakery in the nearby Jaifer's supermarket during the week. This makes a bad aftertaste to our otherwise great holiday in Portugal. It's not about the money spent, it's the attitude.
  • Pricey, specially in the summer, but what you get is usually fish with great quality
