July 8th, 2011 at lunch. around 14:30. View: fantastic Service: awful; there were 5 tables occupied with guests like us and about ten waiters around. However, I have to wait at least ten minutes to tell them serve my wine everytime. They prefered to chat, not to serve (not to have an eye contact with the guests). I ordered bitter... More

I promised I would never listen to the concierge on this trip but follow the trip advisor reviews. Well, we asked about mathba restaurant and the concierge from ciregan kempinski was steering us towards Tugra restaurant. We asked for something casual and great Turkish cuisine. He strongly recommended Feriya home cooking Turkish cuisine, just minutes away from the kempinski hotel.... More

If you would like to dine in Istanbul just steps away from the water, this is one of the best restaurants. Great food and stunning view. Great for business dinners and special occasions. Absolutely must in Istanbul.

Food was some of the best we had in the city, and the VIEW is stupendous--one of the most romantic and beautiful in the world!! We sat next to the water and had the full view of the mosque and the bridge with its ever changing colorful lights relecting on the Bosporus as the sun set. I highly recommend the... More

The location of this restaurant is fantastic and is worth the visit just to see, however that is where our experience should have ended to savour the moment, our expectations were set by the location and prospect of having food cooked by the ex head chef of the Kempinskey where we were staying.Service style is typically American where plates are...

Just on the shores of Bosphorus, looking into the beautiful Ortaköy mosque and Bosphorus bridge, this restaurant has a heavenly location. Its successful modernized Turkish and Ottoman cuisine based menue combined with this unique venue makes Feriye a hot choice for romantic dinners, special occasions and important events. Though the restaurant also serves lunches, best is to go for dinners... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhood 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.
