We went here from a recommendation by our hotel, had no idea the prices would be outrageous. But if you aren't worried about money, the food was excellent.

We had a non fish eater with us but we still decided to go here for dinner. He ordered the mixed grill and it was terrible. The fish was very good and we sat on the roof and the view was awesome.

Waiter will bring huge platter of fresh fish from which you may select. Had a grilled sea bass that was best fish I have ever eaten.

We loved it so much- we ate there twice. It was within walking distance of our hotel (Amira Hotel) and you get a discount if hotel makes the reservation for you.. Grouper, Sea Bass excellent!

Not even the nice offer of a free meal after we complained could entice us back after our experience at this recommended restaurant, where we paid an exorbitant bill (330 turk.lira) for a shared starter of king prawns followed by grilled turbot (suggested by the waiter) again for two, that was however almost inedible on account of consisting about 80%...

This place doesn't look much from the outside but the ambience and view are amazing. Food is perfectly cooked and spiced with the seasonings making even things we were wary of ordering wonderful experiences. Highly recommended and if you do as we did and stick with sharing cold and hot entrees reasonably priced too.

Dinner on roof terrace. Staff brought you whole tray of fish and mezze to choose from which was fun. Food super tasty, fresh, hot and great portion. Had smoked mackerel, grilled octopus, grilled prawn, grilled sea bream on the bone. For 2 people, all for around £20! (not including drinks) Sea view is epic. very comfy setting. Staff is good...

Asking for a recommendation from our hotel, they gave us just one and it was Mostra. We were not disappointed and visited it on three of our six nights in the city. It's in the old quarter and the surroundings range from comfortably-off to downright shabby and dilapidated but that is the attraction of so many cities the world over.... More
