Lovely place, delicious food

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!

I was staying in Sultanahmet but I found this place accidentally. Unlike other places the staff here is not pushy, rather laid back. View is nice, lot of artists in this hood. Evening can be very laid back and relaxed after a long day. Food is quite good.

The food was OK, the staff were very friendly. The menu was confusing with pictures very far away from listed items as times. One of our party was very disappointed because of this.

It took 2hours and 10 minutes to get our main course on the table and we lost half an afternoon conference due to this dispite it was all ordered in advance. WHen the ffod arrived it was unfit for human consumption. A disgrace.

We've been eating delicious food in Istanbul all week. This wasn't one of the places. Mezze platter included this weird, inedible mayonnaise & carrot dip.

We stayed at the hotel empress zoe (also *highly* recommend). It's right across the street. This was our go-to spot all week. Restaurants in Istanbul like to stop tourists in the street and try to weasel you in. (You'll see how annoying this is) This place does none of that. They remembered us and said a friendly hello as we... More
