We thought we would try Lebanese food last night and so perused the local Lebanese restaurants on Tripadvisor. This one seemed very highly recommended so off we went. The restaurant is easy to find, right behind the Notre Damme Church, however our GPS got us in a bit of a pickle because it did not allow for the closed off... More

I wanted to love this place, as I am allergic to gluten and I don't have a lot of food options in Nice. The falafels here have wheat in them, so I had to skip that. We ordered around 6 mezzes total and I really like half of them and disliked the other half. The highlight of the meal was... More

Me & my husband took our visiting friends to Le Socrate on a Sunday afternoon when the restaurant was almost entirely empty. We had been there once and the food & entertainment had been good. But this time, we were in for a shock. When we told the waiter that we wanted to order just appetizers (enough for 4 people)... More

Should to stay in the center of Nice we would recommend this place. It's conveniently located opposite the Notre Dame cathedral. The food is authentic. We recommend the Meze, the Kebbe and the Taboulé.

From the other reviews (and this was how we selected Le Socrate for dinner) it seems at times this restaurant serves good food. When we were there for dinner, however, it did not. I had the chicken shawerma, it was terrible, dried and crumbly, like leftovers that had been reheated under a grill, instead of the nice juicy flavoursome meat... More

We chanced upon this place on a wet Saturday exploring recent revocation works surrounding the Nice cathedral. I've been disappointed by other Lebanese restaurants around town but the menu looked promising . Saturday turned out to be party central. I've no idea if this happens every Saturday but it was a set menu for 30€ or the normal menu in... More

Le Socrate is well-situated along on of Nice's main shopping streets, right alongside Notre-Dame. It proposes a Lebanese menu with a great choice of grilled meats and mezzes at a relatively good price. The grilled meats were tender and had that delicious, char-grilled taste, just as they should. And the mezze selection was wide and almost all excellent, served with... More

The meal was delicious, all nicely prepared and served. very fresh and tasty. We had the 20euro mezze and it was massive and included baclava and coffee/tea. The service was helpful and prompt. Nice wine (do you ever get bad wine in France?). Recommended.
