On our return to Stalis we decided to eat at Socrates again and were not disappointed. The food is really good and the staff are really fun and friendly. Excellent value for money.

We visited a couple of times while we were away and both times the food was nice. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. It was reasonably priced and we would visit again if we are in the area.
