“Great food and entertainment too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Adonis makes you feel very welcome right from the start. My sister and I ate there almost every night for a week last june and quite frankly I wouldn't go anywhere else!
I am returning to Stalis late September with my Husband and am really looking forward to introducing him to Adonis and enjoying more delicious food served with a smile!!
Well done Adonis, fantastic!

“A Great Night Out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Adonis has to be the best and most entertaining host in Stalis. I went there with my sister in June last year, we were made so welcome that we ate there nearly every night. I had a birthday meal there which was delicious and was then given a free dessert with sparklers in! Lots of free drinks and conversation. I went back in September with my husband and was recognised immediately and made very welcome. We have just come back home after a third trip to Stalis and of course we ate at Socrates again. Adonis is a lovely, warm and welcoming man and I have no hesitation in recommending his restaurant.

“BEST FOOD IN STALIS!!!!!”

We found this place by chance, as this was our first visit to Crete.
What a find, the food was excellent, Adonis the owner is a fantastic host, Roula his wife does all the cooking.We ate there the whole week.
There is always free Rake and a FREE sweet on offer.
THANK YOU BOTH for making our holiday.

Eddie & Lynn.

“Adonis===probably the best bloody waiter in Crete!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were recommended to this restaurant by some people who had been going there for several years and we were not disappointed.
The food is excellent I ate Kleftiko and my wife had seabass and both were fabulous.
We went again the next night and and Adonis had done a special vegetarian dish for my wife, this dish is called Briam and tasted terrific I had souvlaki also splendid.
Adonis is such a great friendly host with a terrific sense of humour and personality.
I would definitely recommend this to everyone and look forward to my next visit.
