Our concierge recommended this restaurant as we are looking for a place to eat with good food and good view, but I think now that the concierge got some money after we booked. The restaurant has a nice location and looks very elegant and clean. Service is not to bad but the food really doesn't match at all with the... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Southern Europe. Kitchen is OTTOMAN kitchen...Please do try the stuffed zucchini flower, seafood meze's and enjoy a really fresh sea bass from Bosporus grilled to perfection...

I never miss Feriye for dinner, when I'm in Istanbul. It is the combination of an excellent restaurant and the fantastic view of the Bosporus bridge. Usually I impress a friend by taking her/him there.

Situated in an old police station on the Bosphorus shore, this chic's restaurant highlight is the superb view of the Bosphorus bridge, very romantic at sunset and later for the magnificent bridge lighting system. Food is ok, very well presented, fish is fresh in months with an "r" (that is from september to april when the fishermen are allowed to... More

Recommended by the hotel as leader in traditional Ottoman cuisine. More like standard Western fine-dining. Faultless service, excellent wine and food. Can't fault the location but wouldn't sit in the traffic for a special trip. Just not as traditional / entertaining as I hoped.

The food was excellent. The National Day celebrations was fully enjoyed with the fireworks and laser lights show. All the big wigs of the society seemed to have gathered here to witness the celebrations followed by dinner.

My husband and I where recommended the Feriye restaurant as beeing one of the best of Istanbul. So we had quite high expectations but we were really disappointed due to the rude and unfriendly waiters and the overpriced food was really just average. Splendid location by rhe sea but really not worth the detour, and when when you want to... More

My wife and I visited Feriye on a whim during vacation. (It came recommended). We were dressed fairly casually. This was not an issue, although most folk were at least "smart casual." We did not have reservations but were able to walk in. The restaurant was about 3/4 full. The setting is excellent. The outdoor seating is right on the... More

try to eat here in a good weather because you will seat here the bosphorus and the ambience is definitely magnificent, go with cab, make reservation to a seaside table, it's perfect for special occasions, prices are high but food and wine were really perfect.
