This is a great place to have an evening dinner with friends or with your partner. You sit directly at the Bosporus with a stunning view on the Ortaköy Mosque. The service is friendly, helpful and alert. The food is well prepared and the menu shows a variety of typical Turkish specialties, but the food didn't blew me off my... More

we had the pleasure of attending a wedding at Feriye, which was all in all a very pleasant experience. Apart from the wedding organization, the food and the services provided were of high quality, not to mention the superb location and the beautiful Bosphorus view. We had been here before, not for lunch or dinner, but for coffee and tea... More

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.

They offer good service, a beautiful setting and average food. And they are absolutely overpriced ...
