Very pleasant

We had been here 4 years ago and tried to find it again. Good value, just off the tourist strip. Authentic Turkish dishes and friendly service.

Host was friendly and not overly pushy as may host are in the neighborhood. Food was average not bad not good. Service was average as well seem to forget about you once you are in the door.

We have been passing by this restaurant for the past 5 days, as it is located right infront of our Hotel Zoe Empress. We finally decided to have our last lunch here, and it is one of our very best. The seafood casserole, the Ottoman beef casserole and the Sultan's Favorite Chicken dish are exceptionally good. Especially served with rice!... More

This restaurant is only a few minutes walk away from Hagia Sophia but is down a small side street so away from the main crowds. It's also right next to the main strip of bars and restaurants within the old town. Simple food but really tasty. I wouldn't go for an evening meal but for lunch I couldn't fault it.... More

I had dinner here with the family on the final night we stayed in Istanbul and it was a great way to wrap up our holidays in Turkey! Beautiful view, great food and efficient service!

I am sure that we just caught them on a bad night as most reviews are good, but after waiting rather a long time for the Mezes, which were good, we waited even longer for our main meal. When it arrived the food was bland and simply not up to any sort of standard. The waiters tried hard, but it... More

This restaurant is unique with a beautiful view of the splendid little Hagia Sophia and the Marmara Sea. On each floor the decor is typical and different. The terrace is sublime, and when the temperature drops, the servers kindly offer us red blankets. The service is really friendly. The food is exquisite and a great variety, and the dishes are...

Great restaurant in downtown Istanbul! Good food. Good wine. Great ambiance. We had a very nice meal on the third floor terrace. The terrace has a nice view of the downtown area (including the small Hagia Sophia church/mosque - not to be confused with the big one).

We had a really nice evening at Kosk. I had delicious shish kebab, with lots of fresh vegetables and wonderful bread. We were welcomed by Zaccariah, a warm and friendly greeter who promised that it would be paradise. And it almost was!
