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

The restaurant had good food and many different floors to choose from and an outdoor terrace. The testy kebab was great.

We found this place after eating just along the road and got given a card by the front of house guy who did a good enough job to get us to visit the next night. We asked for a table on the top floor terrace which wasn't a problem as they were not especially packed out. And while the views... More

The most effective front of house man we have yet encountered (who could resist Nouri?). Lovely view from the terrace as the sun went down, excellent food and most attentive and friendly service. We'll be visiting again soon.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood 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.
