  • Worth a visit to see the building and the fish market. We also went to the roof top bar which is great. All said, I wish we had read previous reviews and the warnings about the rip off fruit sellers.....  more

  • The place is nice. Good to get local produce. A large fresh fish bay at the end. Be careful when purchasing things. Always make sure you ask the price first. Chances are the little bag of nuts are gonna cost you 15euro.
  • You need to visit this place as local market with fresh fishes , many exotic fruits and vegetables. Items are not cheap , but really well-looking. Outside the mall ,you can find cheaper fruits . Still . Good to visit .
