Socrates is a small vegan restaurant. The owner, family and staff are very friendly and helpful, they gave us a lot of information and phone numbers.Thanks., The food is excellent, fresh made with local products and good taste. This restaurant feels like a home, books all around and Art everywhere. Owner is a good host. We will go back again.
