“'KÖŞK RESTAURANT' WE LOVE'D WE WELL BE BACK EXCELLENT FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We came here recomended by a friend that use to travel to Istanbul. It took us a while to find it within the many restaurants close to the Blue Mosque but we didn't surrender.
And we didn't regret. Everything was perfect, the food, the service, the atmosphere and the price level.
I returned back again the day after after exploring Saint Sophia and I will do it again when I return to Istanbul someday:Thank's for my friend because he recomend to the us this restaurant.

“the köşk restaurant best in 'sultanahmet'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

We went to köşk cafe restauran for dinner, and enjoyed it so much we went back for lunch the following day.

Although the menu is fairly wide-ranging, for us the whole point was to have traditional Turkish/Anatolian dishes, and we particularly loved:

- The lamb dish that comes in a clay pot broken at the table
- The Anotolian dish that arrives in flames
- The Turkish desserts (yum!)

As you have read elsewhere, the staff were both attentive and good fun, and the restaurant has a good atmosphere.

We loved it, we returned, what more can we say?

“Superb dining and Excellent Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

This is a wonderful restaurant to dine comfortably. I cannot say enough about the exotic tastes and delicious cuisine at Kosk Restaurant. We enjoyed the service and authentic flavors of Turkey at this particular restaurant so much, that we kept going back. The manager attended to us with such warmth and charm that made us feel so welcomed. Of all the restaurants we tried in Istanbul, this one is the BEST!! Thank you to all the staff for making our trip so enjoyable. We hope to come back to dine with you again.

“honest staff, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

These lads are from the east of Turkey and their food is first class, really superb. The lavash ekmek is superb.

There is not much more to say, if you can deal with the lad on the pavement shouting to get you in, it is worth every penny.

NO ripoffs or charges here, they are straight. If you want to tip, you do, there are no sneaky charges,
