Positioned right between Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet, the location couldn't be better. We stayed for 5 nights and the room had a roof terrace so you had great views of both as well as the sea. Palatium had great food, a very chilled atmosphere and friendly and attentive staff. I would definitely recommend this as a home from home for a couple or a family looking to spend 2-5 days right in the heart of the old city. Dani who runs the restaurant is not only friendly but quick, knowledgable and an excellent host.
To top it off, there is a Roman excavation right under the restaurant that you can visit and the outdoor side has a glass floor so you can see down into it.

We visited this place several times on a recent Istanbul city break. It is conveniently located just back from the Blue Mosque and the other key sites. We had just drinks here and also a meal on our visits. The lager we had was reasonably priced for the city at 14TL for a 50cl bottle and is served in ice cold glasses so it really hits the spot.
The meals we had we all agreed were good, well cooked and tasty and although not cheap we thought them good value. The service charge of 10% is automatically added to everything whether you just have drinks or a meal. I don’t agree with this policy but it is what it is. If you find it an issue, go somewhere else.

Four of us called in here for a beer yesterday afternoon, we sat in the court yard in the sunshine. The beer was cold & it was bottled Efes. We also tried the pide which was lovely.

Due to our lunchtime experience we came back for our evening meal which was very nice, a lovely chilled atmosphere & well worth a visit

This is a great place to sit and watch the world go by while enjoying any from a range of beverages, both hot and cold, soft and alcoholic.The seats next to the window are bean bags but with a back and are so comfortable. We didn’t eat there but the food we saw looked good nd the other customers seemed to be appreciative. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. Worthwhile going off the main drag to find this place.
