As we’re relatively new in Jeddah, and are really really into sea food, we weren’t sure of the best places to find some. We’ had heard about the Fish Market from a friend and so decided to give it a try.. what an amazing experience! It’s an open buffet on Fridays (I’m not sure about the rest of the week), but it’s on till around 4 o’clock only, so you have to go shortly after the Juma prayers.
The buffet is amazing! you can choose anything you like from a great selection of fresh fish. There is also a great salad and appetizers bar (which is just mouth watering) full of shrimps, smoked salmon, calamari, and even sushi.. Just after you have finished your appetizers, the fresh fish that you have chosen beforehand would be ready for you to savor. Then just when you think that you are really stuffed, you find out that there’s an open buffet with different platters, Thai, Chinese, Arabian style… with lobsters, shrimps, fish and everything that could have lived under the sea. Also be sure to save some space for dessert as there is a pretty good dessert selection too in the open buffet!! Just a note: Skip breakfast that day.The Staff are extremely polite and attentive and although the prices are relatively expensive; it’s great value for money considering the quality of food on offer.Read more
