Seafood | Fairfax, Virginia - DC Suburbs

We opened as a Gourmet Seafood Market specializing in Mediterranean Seafood, hence the name MediterraFISH. Our goal was to introduce more SEAfood in addition to OCEANfood to east coasters and let more people know about the healthy eating style of the Mediterranean. Our Turkish heritage and our business ties in the region allowed us to bring species that no other supplier had before.
As we became known as the best fresh seafood market in the area providing sustainable and healthy seafood, we were bombarded by our customers requests to provide cooked seafood. This led to adding a restaurant to our existing concept. Our menu combines variety of sustainable and trustworthy seafood with halal meat, chicken & vegetarian dishes. We are also known for our hand crafted salads. Our restaurant also has a kids play room for families to enjoy their meals together.

Discover Washington, D.C.

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
