My partner and I ended up at Mostra late at night after a long day of traveling. I had low expectations because I'm generally suspicious of restaurants that advertise so heavily (Mostra had a pamphlet in EVERY hotel we stayed at), but was pleasantly surprised. Although we were one of the only two tables in the restaurant at that hour,... More

The restaurant was part of an organized tour stop on Thanksgiving. The apetizer plate was colorful and delicious. It's a fish restaurant so we got excited for fresh fish entree. Instead we were served turkey and mashed potatoes. It was good. The other diners' fresh fish smelled amazing though.

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.

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.
