Great location, good food, poor service

The location is one of the best you can get in Istanbul. Right on the Bosphorus waterfront. The food was better than avarage, however, the poor service made things look worse. We had to wait for more than an hour for the main course. Two same main course dishes arrived 15 minutes apart. The things... read more

This place is a gem right at the waterfront. The view is really stunning but the food could be a little better. The menu selection is quite wide and some of the meals creative. Service could be a bit more attentive. Still I believe it is worth the visit mainly for those seeking romantic location.

Location is excllent - directly on Bosphorus with a view to the bridge - but the restaurant is heavily overpriced, food is so so and service is ok at best. The place is impossible to find unless you know it, or if your hotel concierge sends you to Feriye, which is exactly where they get the guests from.

My husband and I spent several hours online researching the perfect spot to spend our last night in Istanbul. We could not be any happier with our choice of Feriye Lokantasi. This restaurant is right on the Bosphorus, with boats coming within feet of the floor to ceiling windows giving, us a bit of a thrill through dinner. The food... More

This fabulous restaurant is a 10 - 15 minutes cab ride from the hotels near Taxim Square. We were looking for a gourmet spot to celebrate Mother's Day over dinner. I told my husband this was a home run, and he said no, more like a grand slam! He was right. The restaurant is at the water's edge, a glass... More

I went there for business diners and lunches. Perfect for foreign delegations if you want to take them to a good restaurant but also a chic dinner option for couples or groups. Ottoman cuisine, chic atmosphere and beautiful location. This is a chic place and the bill will be high but worth of it. I suggest you go there at... More

If you are near Ortakoy I highly recommend you to make a dinner in this old Ottoman palace. You can taste some real Ottoman cuisine dishes. Also very good fish options. Incredible Bosphorus Panorama, Prices are midle -upper level .

It is by the Bhosphorus where you can see the Bhosphorus bridge (1st one) and the Ortakoy mosque together. You can see the heavy traffic of the Bhosphorus while you are enjoying your wine.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
