Great food. Appetizers are brought to your table to choose from as are the fresh fish and the meals were built specially for us with their advice. Staff friendly and funny. Nice views from the table on the rooftop deck

This was so recommended by our hotel. I was a little wary but exhausted from touring so we walked over. We had the grilled octopus (awesome) and they brought the fresh fish on a tray to our table to pick out what grilled fish to have. We choose the sea bass, grilled on the half shell. Outstanding! Even the Italians... More

Our hotel gave us a recommendation for nearby seafood at a reasonable price. Given that we just arrived into Istanbul, our family was exhausted and was not in the mood to search out options. Mostra Fish Restaurant is in a somewhat run down area of Sultanahmet, but the friendly greetings started at the front entrance and they continued throughout our... More

Mostra was highly recommended as a great seafood place with a view of the Bosphorous and free shuttle service from our hotel. The shuttle was on time and we were greeted in a friendly manner. The restaurant was on the roof of the building and was almost empty when we arrived. The view from our table was of the water... More

Very good service, a wonderful roof terrace with a sea view and beautiful, fresh fish cooked to perfection. Some of the fish on the menue were unfamiliar to us so the waiter brought them out on a tray to show us and let us pick the one we wanted. He also brought a big tray of various starters for us...

The food was ok, nothing to come back for, but I was shocked to see the bill. Three cold starters, two soups, one entree and the cheapest bottle of wine ($30) turned out to be 340 TL = 170 $US total. The fish entree that the server suggested was 150 TL per kilo on the menu, which I expected to... More

We ate here last night. What a disappointment. Tired food, slightly sleezy waiters, heavily overpriced wine. It has a good view of the sea. It was clean. But apart from that it had very little going for it. The final insult was being given a plate of ageing fruit (rotten pieces cut off) as a 'gift' after we said we... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel down the lane, Albinas. We went there for lunch and the view from their roof top restaurant was no doubt quite nice, and the set-up of the restaurant was also very charming. The food took a while to come but when it came, it was fresh and tasty. We had ordered grilled sea... More

We chose this restaurant because the fresh fish looked good and the setting was beautiful. Unfortunately, the food did not match the setting. The portions were small, expensive, bony, and not as tasty as we'd hoped. The service was impeccable and lovely, but we will not eat there again because we prefer to find better value for our money.
