Came here with my parents and the food was so delicious we had to come again before we left Istanbul. The food is fresh, delicious and genuinely the best seafood I've ever had. The staff are wonderful and attentive and the atmosphere is amazing. I recommend it for anyone visiting Istanbul.

Situated in the heart of the Kumkapi area of Istanbul where fish restaurants abound, Hos Seda sets itself apart by its dedication to customer service. Despite a good menu we could have whatever we wanted tailored to our own needs. We had starters and main course and both were excellent in terms of taste and very plentiful. We were recommended...

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
