Delicious seafood in a stunning marina setting in Abu Dhabi
  • +1

Time Out Says

Fishmarket’s setting by the marina, its huge central counter displaying fresh fish on ice, and a vast array of veggies in baskets, is refreshingly different and impresses from the moment you enter the venue.

What is unqiue is that there is no menu. What you see on display is what you’ll eat. With the help of staff, you pick your fish by weight, choose how you’d like it cooked, decide on a sauce and rice or noodles to go with it and hand it over to the kitchen.

We imagine that cooking this way for a large group could be a headache for the chefs, but being able to design your meal like this is really fun for diners. We go for grilled sea bream with a Thai red curry sauce on the side, egg-fried rice and sautéed marrows, red peppers and baby corn. We’re thoroughly impressed by it all — it’s super-fresh and wonderfully prepared.

The restaurant is busy and it’s not hard to see why. For a delicious, healthy, made-to-order meal and a taste of the ocean, let Fishmarket reel you in.

The bottom line
Healthy eats whipped up in a fun way.
