A stunning restaurant situated on the river by the Bosphorus bridge but difficult to find...peaceful sophisticated in all respects. Great for a special occasion or business dinner. A table right by the river is a bonus if you can get one ! The food would best be described as modern Turkish fine dining. Prices are similar to what you would... More

Best Appetizers I have eaten in years! Stuffed zucchini flowers, grape leaves, fried calamri, chickpea purée with cured beef, fried calamari, smoked eggplant, etc. etc. All of it was fantastic and next time will bring the family and eat appetizers for all courses! The views and ambience at night were awesome. Will go again!

We saw Feriye on a Saturday afternoon boat cruise. Once we returned to our hotel to go to dinner, we had our concierge make us a reservation and then headed to Feriye. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived with all waterfront tables available, but the server refused to seat us at any of those tables because "we just... More

A stunning restaurant situated on the river by the Bosphorus bridge. Great for a special occasion (ask to sit at a table right by the river). The food would best be described as modern Turkish fine dining. Prices are similar to what you would pay for a similar meal in London (£50 per head) but the views are worth paying... More

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

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.
