    Smile Fresh caught fish

    I know I have seen this on this forum before but I am unable to find it. My question is.... Is there a place to purchase fresh caught fish that they will have ready for you to cook? Or fresh caught fish and they cook it right there?
    We will have a car so we are able to drive to location. THANK YOU in advance

    believe it or not kathy, we have had the best luck with the grouper and snapper and wahoo at "Lings."
    it is in the fish dept. and is all prepared in a marinade of sorts and it can be baked, pan fried or grilled.

    then also there is "daily fish" located in the super foods complex.
    folk speak highly of that place too.

    I believe that you can purchase fresh fish right off the dock at Zeerover's and in front of Hadicurari.

    There are a couple of local fisherman that sell fish right out of their homes. There is a guy that is always busy, that we drive by.. he was fileting a huge red snapper yesterday afternoon for a lady. If you are at the light where the high rise tourism area is (the main road - Sasaki Hwy), heading north toward the lighthouse. AT THAT LIGHT TAKE A RIGHT, NOT A LEFT to go to the high rise area. Go to the next light. Caribbean Palm Resort will be on your left. Take a left at that light. You will see a new modern building (blue/white), literally just behind the building on the right you will see a private home with a table set up outside near the gate. That is where you can buy fresh fish. Also, when driving around if you see the sign "PISKA TA BENDE" in front of a home, that is "fish for sale"...

    Good luck!

    Oh wow.. I thought it was part of the centra di bario - Noord.. The walk in clinic, I thought was the grey and white building down the street. I don't think the new building has "officially" opened yet.. but heard there is also a cafeteria inside as well...
    Thanks Andrea!

    No worries! My friend said it is going to be be a new part of the centra di bario (Neighborhood central) for Noord. I have not been in it yet, but from the outside, at night it looks to be really beautiful. There is also an ATM there as well. I'm going to try and check it out this week.. maybe have lunch.

    The fishman (Piskatur in Papiamento)?? The fishman is actually just before Giselle's Department store on the right side of the Road.. and BEFORE Cafe080 on the same side. Literally as soon as you make the left and come to the "backside" of the new building, pull over on the side of the road.. he is right there.

    The Clinic is almost across the street from Cafe080.

    Hope this helps...
