It was recommended by the hotel. I wish I had looked it up before coming. Great atmosphere and perfect location but way over priced. The food was saltier than I like and I like salt. The octopus was the smallest octopus I have ever had and still the most expensive starter

We went there for dinner sat the end of December. The appetizers and the fish was just delicious! We would go back to this place anytime. (Inexpensive was it not, but the money was worth it!)

Would have expected more in this price bracket. Probably made the mistake of ordering a meat dish which was average and service went down hill from there..

This restaurant is a gem I would definetely recommend it! I've never been to a fish restaurant with a luxurious approach of service, quiality of food, decoration, that also offers affordable prices! It is a stunning restaurant, the food is great, the views are incredible, the staff is super friendly! Highly reccommended.

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.

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.
