OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANTS - SEAFOOD

Note:  We are seafood fanatics and to limit our choices to only five just wouldn't cut it.  We've chosen our top ten places and then given several others honorable mention.  These choices were very difficult to make!
 

MAMA'S FISH HOUSE - MAUI, HAWAII
This place has it all - beautiful location right on the Pacific Ocean, wonderfully pleasant servers and best of all -- extremely fresh fish.  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

ANTHONY'S PIER 4 - BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS
Popular with both tourists and locals, this is a fantastic restaurant serving the freshest of New England with a beautiful harbor view.  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

GALATOIRES - NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA
A true seafood gem in the "quadda" as New Orleanians refer to the French Quarter.  The place has been around forever and serves great fresh seafood.  The sea trout with various sauces is out of this world.  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

WATERFRONT RESTAURANT
THE ROCKS
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
Dine on local favorites like barramundi, Morton Bay Bugs and other great treats and get a nice view of the famous Sydney Opera House, too. Great place.
Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

CAPTAIN KIDD'S - REDONDO BEACH, CALIFORNIA
The variety of seafood (fresh and live) offered at this place is stunning.  It's little more than a seafood market with a few picnic tables but you'll get an outstanding meal here.  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

 GOLD COAST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT - SINGAPORE
This is one of several seafood restaurants right on the shore of the South China Sea in a place known as the UDMC Seafood Centre. You come here for the live seafood.  Live fish, live crabs and live shrimp.  Our favorite dish here is the national dish -- Singapore chili crabs.  Our personal review is here.

CRACKED CONCH - GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS
This isn't a very fancy place but it's incredible if you like conch.  Start out with conch fritters, then have conch chowder, then go for the big play - cracked conch served with tangy tartar sauce.  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

SKIPPERS SEAFOOD BISTRO - EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND
This delightful little place is right on the shore and serves extremely fresh fish.  But try and get a reservation because it's popular with locals and tourists.  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

LA CARAVELLA - VENICE, ITALY
Great seafood fresh from the nearby Adriatic sea.  Friendly, efficient service in a nautical theme.  Our personal review is here.

BUENA VISTA - NASSAU, BAHAMAS
Whenever we're in Nassau we always dine here.  This is upscale dining but not quite as stuffy as some other fancy restaurants on the island.  Try the grouper a la Bimini!  Their web site is here.  Our personal review is here.

Note:  We are sad to say that we have removed our all time favorite for seafood in Aruba - Brisas del Mar - from the list.  It's under new ownership and has been all "gussied up."  We'll always have memories of the plain, old place with the friendly woman who knew us by name year after year.  Sorry, but we are traditionalists.
