“Just like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great "home-cooked" lebanese classics. It has become a little pricey in the past couple years, but it's still a reliable meal. Their desserts (cakes especially) are among the better ones in Beirut. We appreciate that they do not overbake their cakes.

I've been there twice during my vacation and it was best food I've eaten in this two weeks stay in Beirut. Veeeery nice food, fresh and good service! Adorable to recommend :)

“The place to go for the real lebanese cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

With my respect to ALL hotels and restaurants that serves lebanese cuisine, Socrates has the professional lebanese cuisine.
The best caterer in Lebanon.

“Well known catering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Socrates is a catering company having a couple of restaurants in Beirut. It is a nice spot to have a diner with friends in a not expencise setting.
