Within the Kumkapi fish market area of Istanbul, the "Hos Seda" fish restaurant is located in a tourist 'hot spot' recommended by many hotels (including ours).There is fierce competition for customers from all of the restaurants here and each offers a complimentary taxi service to/from your hotel. We were seated at an upstairs balcony table overlooking the main square and... More

The is in a very touristy square in the Kumkapi area of Istanbul known for its fish restaurants. It had been recommended by the hotel and the taxi was provided by the restaurant both ways. When we first arrived we wondered whether we had made a mistake but not so. Firstly it was popular with Turks who made up a... More

This place was recommended to me by the hotel. I rarely go a hotel recommendation, let alone one that has a brochure! However, it had a high rating here on trip advisor. My meal cost 80 liras for me only (included 2 beers and also includes 10% service charge). My issue is not the cost, my issue is that the... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were keen to try out some delicious seafood. The staff were very nice, polite and spoke excellent English. They were very helpful and explained through the menu. I did feel as if we were being pushed a little too hard to opt for the pricer option (coming to well over 300TL)... More

Went to Hos seda on our last Saturday night in Istanbul back in Decemer with a group of guests from Ayasofya hotel. Lucky to have hottie owner Gaye take us and help us enjoy a great night of fabulous food, boisterous activity, music and laughing. The locals really let their hair down and celebrate so hard, easy to get wrapped... More

Our hotel suggested this place and said they would offer free shuttle- so far it sounded like a good deal. Nice place but empty there was 1more group and us. The prices of items was too high and food didn't taste that good either. I would not recommend it at all.
