Friday night is the busiest time, and will offer both touristy and local experiences. From the Pop music on one end of the market to the formal ballroom dancing on the other end, you can truly find your niche at Oistins. Get there early, be...More

This is busy, noisy and the food is generally fairly average. This is a popular Friday night location, but as it has become so popular, standards have fallen away. The aims seems to get you in and fed as quickly as possible, so that the...More

Hi Penny, I'm not 100% sure but from my experience it's not gluten-free. Oistins serves mainly fresh fish and seafood with starchy accompaniments. If nothing appeals then maybe just go for the atmosphere! Have a great time... More
