The Fish Market

The Central Fish Market in Kuwait City is considered the city's most important fish market. It is located on Gulf Road, where most of the city's most notable landmarks can be found. In addition to the usual hustle and bustle of bargaining, its lovely location on the waterfront is frequently confused for a nearby palace belonging to the Emir of Kuwait.

It is one of the oldest fish markets in the country, and as you make your way through the crowded stalls, the region's traditions that date back hundreds of years become clear to you. 


• Embrace unique marine life here:

Many people will find that the fish market in Kuwait is where they come across the strangest marine creatures they have ever seen outside of an aquarium.

Arrive early to see the bustling market come to life, with buyers searching for the freshest and most exquisite seafood caught that day in the surrounding waters. It would be best to prepare to bargain and negotiate a little over the prices throughout the day. The fish served here is guaranteed to be the freshest in Kuwait.

• The building itself is a stunning piece of architecture as well:

The interior is even more stunning than the exterior and tastefully embellished with lovely blue ceramic mosaics of aquatic life. 

• Have a delectable meat at the Fish Market Restaurant:

An exceptional caliber restaurant is situated on the water's edge and offers breathtaking coastline vistas. If you're a fan of seafood, this is the restaurant for you; the menu features a wide variety of options, including fresh red snapper, crab, scallops, shrimp, and more.

You can select the kind of fish you like best, and it will be prepared according to your specifications, either by grilling, frying, steaming, or using curry.
