This is where we take our guests. Every. single. one. of them. You visit Baku – you visit Darya Fish House. It’s how it is. It’s how it goes. I’m not even sure why, but no guest has missed this eating spot in the city.
Come to think about it, it was actually the first place me and my son went to after we arived in the city. We hadn’t even seen the center yet, but we had already eaten in Darya Fish House (and it’s not even close to the center!). Now that I think about it… it’s a bit strange. 🙂
Aaaanywaaaaay… Darya Fish House is where you go whenever you crave fish. The location is good (right next to the sea); the restaurant is huge (and I mean – huuuuge); and there’s a big playground area for kids (both indoors and outdoors).
The menu consists of… fish (big surprise there!) 🙂 The downside of that is that the size of the fish can vary, depending on… the season, maybe. It so happens that whenever my husband visits alone (without me) – fish is huge! When I’m with him… well, it’s deffinitely not huge. But delicious it is! 🙂
Apart from fish you can also order some typical Azerbaijani salads/starters and of course – French fries. Most of the staff (and there’s a lot of staff there!) speaks only Azerbaijani, but they also have a couple of waiters that speak Russian as well. Considering the popularity of the place, I suppose they might have an English-speaking person hidden somewhere between them, but I haven’t checked. Next time! 🙂
My favourite thing about Darya Fish House is their biiiiiiiig playground for kids (with animator). They built it recently and it’s in a very good state. The animator plays with the kids, while the parents can enjoy a peacefull meal. What a blessing! 🙂 There is also a big playground outside as well as numerous swings and slides all over the place. However, if you’re visiting for lunch in the summer, the sun is too strong to allow the kids to play outside. That’s when the indoor playground comes to the rescue. 🙂
So, prepare to visit Darya Fish House – one of the most famous fish restaurants in Baku, Azerbaijan.
