Mercado de Peixe São Pedro: "Fresh catch and fun atmosphere" Niterói Restaurant Tip by DSwede
Niterói Restaurants: 6 reviews and 5 photos
The market sells fish on the lower level and has restaurants on the upper levels. For a small fee, you can buy the fresh catch below and have them prepare it upstairs along with side dishes, salads, etc.
Even if you don't want to dine-in, the market sells the freshest and cheapest fish and seafood in town. Even without a meal in mind, it is a worth while stop to walk the market and see (and smell) the sights.
Saturday lunch time is best since it gets busy later at night and Sunday is a popular family day and similarly gets very busy.
Favorite Dish: There are a few varieties of shrimp to find, ranging from B$13 ~ 24 /kg.
Salmon and other exotic fish may be more expensive at R$35 / kg
Fish like Dorado and Bacalao are maybe B$25/kg
Plan on about 1/2 kg of food per person depending on your hunger. Including the fee to cook the fish, average price will come out to be ~B$20 per person, plus drinks.
