Was looking for a bite to eat after arriving at my hotel. Kosk was right there! Charming and helpful waiters. Lovely kebab dinner, yummy bread and complimentary tea with my dessert. Lovely outdoor cafe in the heart of the old city.

Our family had a lovely dinner at Kosk! We all had claypots, which were really authentic (they cut the top in front of you) and deliciously full of flavour. Great service too - friendly and welcoming. Thank you :) Highly recommend!

All the eateries in Sultanahmet are tourist traps but this one is the worst kind: over priced AND the food is bad. I ordered a mixed meze plate and only two of the five salads were edible. They have better humus at Trader Joe's.

Absolutely fresh and tasty food. The lentil soup with fresh bread was the best I've tasted in Turkey. Kebab platter was great. Many options for vegetarians available. Very hospitable staff. Free WiFi available. Lovely atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful lunch! :)

Our food was incredibly fresh, the staff were welcoming and timely. I loved my vegetarian casserole, however my husband found his kebab to be adequate. They were hospitable and attentive.

Great upper deck view and friendly staff. Visited in November. Thanks Nuri! Really close to the little Hagia Sophia. Stop in for dinner or just an Effes.

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
