Great seafood doesn't have to be expensive. Head downtown to stuff yourself silly. At first glance, this inconspicuous restaurant in Bab al-Louk district looks like an ordinary fishmonger's shop. But head upstairs to the spacious dining room with long tables and carved wooden chairs and you'll find locals gorging on a banquet of fish. Prices are listed by the kilogram, so pick your seafood and have the waiter price it for you. Start with salad, tahina and fresh bread before diving into a plate of the daily catch. Calamari, shrimp and shellfish round out the menu. Prices vary throughout the year.
