Very frendly staff, good food and atmosphere. Not on the crowded street which is good. Get for free a mezze until the orders came and after you get a tea for free which is cool! :)

We had grown tired of being pressured to eat at this restaurant and that restaurant all over Istanbul. A nice young man pleasantly invited us to try the Kosk Restaurant and we have been quite happy each time we have dined there since. The service...More

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
