We ordered the 20 euro menu and were served a feast of delicious Lebanese food. The eight mezze included were all equally tasty, although the tabbouleh in particular was among the best I've ever tasted, fresh and zingy, just as it ought to be. The desserts were equally good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Definitely one we'll be coming... More

We had dinner at Le Socrate last night. The food, if one can call that stuff food, is of very low quality. Two of my friends ordered a "menu", made almost entirely of saltless bread and legume-based sauses: basically an appetite! Also, prices are WAY too high. Avoid it like the plague.

I have eaten here twice. The food is lovely, fresh and adequate portions. The service is friendly and helpful and the restaurant is clean and well organised. My partner had lamb kebab which was delicious and I had chicken kebab and spicy chicken. I wanted to come for lunch to try the mezze but ran out of time. I would... More

We ordered the mezze of 7 dishes which were all tasty but a bit trop beaucoup for we of a small appetite. As is the tradition in such places everything arrives at once, so it can be a bit overfacing and means you have to eat the hot dishes first! The only negative was the way the pitta arrived...in what... More

My husband and I went to lunch here and both ordered lunch specials that came with a variety food. Our plates were visually appealing and tasted great! We were able to sample many different foods. The hummus and warm pita bread were great. It was a good value for the money, and I would recommend this spot.

I had never been to a lebasnese restaurant and I haven't been to any other besides this one so i can't really compare. I do know my meditarreanean food (sicilian/north african/greek/palestinian....) but obviously lebanese food is unique. Anyways i really like it, I had the mixed entree menu and I got more than 8 different little plates full of goodness.... More

We had never had Lebanese food before and were pleasantly surprised. It was very tasty and plentiful. We had to apologise to the staff as we could not finish it all. Staff pleasant and helpful and would revisit should we return to Nice.
