Looking for a evening meal with family we decided on this low key looking restaurant. It's good to be reminded of the simple things in life. The decor and setting are unpretentious just as you would find in a Greek island town. We opted for the mid week meze and a Moussaka. The service was excellent and food sent us... More

Excellent again, staff are so friendly and helpful, couldn't choose between two main courses so was offered a combination of the two, pork souvlaki is highly recommended. My only qualm is the noise...I couldn't hear conversations at the other end of our table but it wouldn't put me off going back, service,food and quality is excellent.

We accompanied friends to celebrate a birthday. As our friends had recommended this restaurant I was really looking forward to authentic Greek/Cypriot dining. Shortly after we were seated at our table a female member of staff came forward and asked if we would like to order drinks whilst studying the food menu. Our friend asked about the house wine and...

Visited with friends last night for my birthday and had a fabulous meal, the food was spot on and being Greek myself I'm always very picky eating this cuisine over here. We were not disappointed and really quick service! Can't wait to go back!

Just enjoyed a great family meal at Socrates! Perfect from start to finish, the cheesecake is to die for and the Meze is a great option! We will be back

It's been too long since dining here last despite making a mental note every time I walk past - other, newer, recently refurbished places seem to distract. Maybe it's because the facade, tables and layout appear unchanged for many years...however the warm welcome and quality of food more than make up the slightly dated surroundings - even these started to...

A perfect place for a celebration whether a small or large group. We couldn't fault the quality and quantity of the wonderful dishes that were put in front of us. The owners were perfect hosts and we will definitely be returning!

Thank Jon T
