Just enjoyed a great family meal at Socrates! Perfect from start to finish, the cheesecake is to die for and the Meze is a great option! We will be back

It's been too long since dining here last despite making a mental note every time I walk past - other, newer, recently refurbished places seem to distract. Maybe it's because the facade, tables and layout appear unchanged for many years...however the warm welcome and quality of food more than make up the slightly dated surroundings - even these started to...

A perfect place for a celebration whether a small or large group. We couldn't fault the quality and quantity of the wonderful dishes that were put in front of us. The owners were perfect hosts and we will definitely be returning!

Early tea with friends. We chose the lite mezze and it was anything but! Lots of choice to suit all tastes and they were very happy to swap a dish none of us liked for another choice. A very sociable choice of resteraunt, relaxed, great freshly cooked food, plenty of choices on the menu. It felt like being on holiday.... More

We recently visited Sokrates Taverna to celebrate a birthday. First impression was 'holy cow - let's go somewhere else' as the front of the restaraunt is not very appealing. The menu was rather confusing as you have a set menu for 12.95 (or there abouts) but you could swap a main on the set menu for something off the main... More

Went on a very busy Tuesday & had the set meal at £20 a head with a bottle of house Red. Excellent meal, more than enough for the 3 of us & we were treated to extra beef stew as it was excellent. We really enjoyed both the food & the very generous and friendly service. Recommend & will return.

I think - I haven't been to Greece but the decor in this great restaurant evoked the sense of being there. The staff were great, the food was excellent and even the Greek wine hit the mark. Great for couples and large groups too.

Sokrates Tavern on Northenden Road in Sale is a super-friendly Mediterranean restaurant serving delicious cuisine from Greece and Cyprus. The Meze menu at Sokrates Tavern with its variety of dishes is perfect for parties and group get-togethers, and the restaurant's wine list has an excellent selection of wines. From the A'la Carte menu one can enjoy traditional dishes like Stifado – a beef and onion casserole with red wine vinegar, herbs and a hint of orange; the classic Mousaka with layers of potatoes, aubergines and mince meat; and the King Prawns Saganaki – a Greek island specialty cooked with red wine, feta and garlic.
