Wonderful experience to end our stay in Abu Dhabi. Fabulous fresh fish, which you buy and then have prepared and cooked for you at one of the surrounding restaurants. A very authentic experience, far surpassing eating in the tourist restaurants.

Well worth an hour of anyone's time. Very clean. Don't be put off by the sellers. The system of buying then having the fish prepared and then going and getting it cooked was a different idea.

Area is still under construction, so no much to see around the fish market itself. Inside this is a constant harassment by fish vendors and restaurants owners. This harassment lead us to leave the market without spending more than 15 minutes inside. Abu Dhabi municipality should implement policy to allow visitors and buyers to be let alone.

Although the food was edible, it was not particularly impressive. Despite the many restaurants in the area, the staff were actively encouraging us to dine at their establishment, but once we were seated, they appeared disinterested. Unfortunately, it took an excessive amount of time for our order to be taken, and when our starters were served, two out of three were incorrect, but we chose to keep them. Regrettably, the main dish was not up to our expectations, as the fried calamari were overcooked. All things considered, I do not intend to return to this restaurant.

A great place to watch what types of seafood is available fresh at the Gulf. Huge competition, nice photo opportunities and very reasonable and surprising prices. You can buy and let them clean for you at a dedicated place, or just bring it to one of the restaurants and they will cook it for you - you can either take it out or eat at the same restaurant (they will charge for the cooking and sitting). All in all prices are surprisingly reasonable and the experience is great. Oh, and it is super clean and modern.

Very very clean fish market. Wide variety of fish and sea food.
You can buy your preferred fish, and they will clean it and cook it for you. Wide range of restaurants around as well

The fish Market selection was great, only major issue I had was the fish cleaning station I presented a large salmon for cleaning and from the start, the cleaner kept smiling and seems like he didn’t care. Previous cleaning have been outstanding and professional, but because of my experience today, this is the first review where I am giving a negative feedback. Bones were left in all the salmon pieces and the pieces were cut sloppy, like the cleaner didn’t care. I know who he is and will not go back to him again.

As already written on this site, the site is newly renovated, very clean, air-conditioned, etc. I'll only add that, as of writing (late Oct-early Nov 2022), the whole area surrounding the fish market is being rebuilt so there are high white construction partitions blocking views of the sea and dhow harbour which spoils the experience of visiting the market. It's fine if you're only there for a fresh seafood meal but don't expect any 'ambiance'.....and that's in addition to the place being a modern construction in a warehouse/commercial area of the city so there's no old world charm either
Also, for those using public transport and/or taxis (without the Dubai Taxi App): at certain times of the day you might have to wait longer than is usual in the UAE for an empty taxi to come by.

Highly recommend

We took our 7 and 9 year old sons and they loved it. It’s really well organised and clean. Good toilets also! Make sure you take cash as it’s cash only. You can get your purchases cleaned to take home or take it to a restaurant in the market. We went to Gandofly where the tiger prawns we bought were prepared in the most delicious way. Would definitely go again.
