Description: Situated in the heart of the Bosphorous, the well-established and always reliable Mira Fish Restaurant has become a favourite of Istanbul's fine-dining crowd. The spectacular view of the Bosphorous Bridge from Arnavutkoy and the beaming lights from the coastlines is an experience one must see. Celebrated for our fish & seafood, join us for a memorable dining experience in the exquisite surrounds of the spacious, smart but unfussy dining area and garden dominated in white, which exudes an easy, informal ambience, while service strikes precisely the right balance: attentive and personal. Specialising in the freshest fish and meze's, Mira Fish Restaurant is one of Istanbul's most respected seafood restaurants. All dishes are cooked to authentic traditional receipies. Fixed price menus and an extensive a la carte menu ensures a full and diverse selection of dishes that is changed seasonally to take advantage of the freshest ingredients. A carefully selected wine list features the perfect accompaniments for fish. Owned and run by three single minded siblings with a passion for fish and seafood who take part in the cooking process to the administration of the restaurant. You will be sure to see them for yourself on your visits.

“A lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Having had 3 meaty meals we decided we were ready for some fish and were not disappointed by our evening at Mira. Delicious meze style starters brought on a tray so you could choose them, followed by grilled sea bass for me and anchovies for my husband. The service was excellent and we weren't rushed or neglected.

“A Great Dinner with an Equal View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The recommendation by the concierge at the W Istanbul is greatly appreciated. Mira was a great dining experience on all fronts. The staff was helpful and even put together a special degustacion menu for our party of four. The food was fresh and excellently prepared. And the view can not be beat.
