We, 2 couples, went to this restaurant for a dinner after a intense walking day. We arrived about 9PM and ordered first beverages and later different meals. The waiter goes indoor and come again telling us that "because is too late we don't have dark beer, so we change dark beer for red wine. After that he came with beverages... More

Absolutely fresh and tasty food. The lentil soup with fresh bread was the best I've tasted in Turkey. Kebab platter was great. Many options for vegetarians available. Very hospitable staff. Free WiFi available. Lovely atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful lunch! :)

Our food was incredibly fresh, the staff were welcoming and timely. I loved my vegetarian casserole, however my husband found his kebab to be adequate. They were hospitable and attentive.

Again I have visited and eaten at Kosk restaurant. It continues with its high standard of both food and hospitality. I have always found the management and staff to treat clients as guests. They are attentive to their patrons and very helpful. Well worth a visit!

The restaurant has a wonderfull terace with a great view. Take advantages of it. The food is good, but I can see nothing really great about it. I have been eating here two times. The first time food was great (turkish kebap), the second time it was not worm. So, I can say 1/2 of their foods are great, and... More

Against my better judgement I decided to eat here despite being shepherded in off the street, given its excellent reviews. Had to double check I'd got the right place as the food was disappointing! The staff were all very friendly and spent quite a while going through the menu with me answering my many questions and made some nice recommendations... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
