We really enjoyed our first meal in Turkey. Great way to start our trip. Walking through the city one is approached by many restaurants to try and get you to eat at their place. The people at Kosk helped us with directions.we figured we owed them at least a look at their menu. We're glad we did. Food was great... More

We had a lovely but simple lunch in this very friendly and helpful little restaurant. Bread straight from the oven, nice shady terrace on a blisteringly hot day, A welcome haven in bustling Istanbul. Nothing was too much trouble.

Slightly off the beaten track - and you have to brave the pressure from lots of other establishments to get there - but here's a lovely, genuine Turkish restaurant. Indoor seating or outdoor, generous free breads (a large blown pitta bread is standard) with free teas at the end of the meal. We found it to be good, wholesome food... More

We ordered sauced eggplant, stuffed peppers and a grilled lamb plate. First off the lamb plate was not lamb... The waiter brought it out and said "here is your chicken, er lamb." But it was actually pork. I guess they thought we had never had lamb before and wouldn't know the difference. But trying to argue in English and Turkish... More

We have had 5 days in Istanbul and this has been by far the best meal. The staff are very attentive but not pushy and the food is excellent. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and would recommend this place to everyone. The clay pot is worth trying as it tastes great and having it served at your table is... More

It doesn't have a roof terrace, sumptuous carpet-clad seating or even an unusual menu. But what it does have is a warm atmosphere, lots of locals (always a good sign), better than average prices and a staff that are friendly and entertaining. The most enjoyable meal of our break, and this restaurant, which sits next door to another currently at... More

Had a good time at Kosk as it was one of my first meals in Istanbul and I'm happy I chose it. Getting the attention of the wait staff took some time at times but once we ordered our food it was quite quick. We both had kebabs and bread was included both which were tasty. We also tried the... More
