The fresh fish were brought to our table to select, and then cooked to perfection. The finest sea bream I have ever tasted, and excellent service

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel as it was closeby. The staff were very welcoming and showed us samples of the starters and the fish to chose from. They were helpful and the food was well prepared and cooked. I didn't feel too comfortable in the place and it was not too good an atmosphere, but the food was... More

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..

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.
