Rooftop terrace a good reward after 2 flights of stairs. Restaurant specializes in fish – sold by kg in portions for 2. Our sea bream was perfectly grilled – excellent grill marks, but the fish was not overcooked. Several options for fresh-caught and farmed fish are available. Service was attentive. Negatives – wine list limited to overpriced Turkish wines. On... More

Lovely staff. View of bosphorous currently spoiled by new tunnel works. Didnt detract from the meal though! Try the whole fish baked in salt and set on fire for a great culinary experience!

Mostra was recommended by our hotel and was in easy walking distance, so we tried it on our first night. We went to the rooftop which has a very nice view. The staff were friendly and hopeful, bringing round platters of fresh whole prawns, octopus and fish to choose from. We had 2 king prawns each, grilled, to start and... More

Yes, this restaurant is a little expensive, if you compare to most of restaurants we've had been in Istanbul. But if you like seafood - and seafood restaurants are usually pricey - I think it's a good place to go. We were in a party of six and everybody felt happy after dinner. Everything we tasted was nice and fresh... More

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...
