Sokrates is our go to restaurant. Any and all occasions, we end up there as it never fails to deliver a cracking night. Panos and his staff consistently make the most delicious food. I have never had a meal where i thought it was mediocre....The waiting staff are all very friendly, helpful and always willing to go make sure you are catered for without hovering around your table. The price is what you expect from a restaurant but it's worth every penny and more because you always come away feeling satisfied and very full. Any left overs will always be put in a doggy bag to take home to. The taverna has a very comfortable homey feel so you feel good eating there in your scruffs but the food and service is that good you could happily take anyone there you want to impress. Every person who I have introduced to Sokrates always returns and recommends it to their friends. I have had take out since we can't dine in because of Covid and the food is still as good as when you dine in and there is always plenty. I can't fault the place.More

Having had some lovely food here over the years, we decided to try a takeaway Meze for two last week and it was a really good decision. Everything was fabulously tasty as usual, the portions were more than we could manage between us, and it...was so well packed that it was still nice and warm after our 30 minute drive back home. Highly recommended to anyone who is craving a change from the usual takeaway options.More

Visited last week on a bit of a whim as we'd ended up out late shopping. Turned up at 8.15 and the staff were so lovely and accommodating. We had the meze, it was excellent. I don't know how someone a few reviews down said...they left hungry!!! Me and my partner are both foodies and eat a lot and we were too stuffed to finish it all. Yes you only get one or two of each thing, but you get about 20 plates, salad, hummus, dips, Pitta bread etc. We ordered a cheesecake to go and shared it at home when we were a bit less full. It was INCREDIBLE. Literally the best thing I've ever eaten. Staff absolutely lovely. Thanks for a lovely first visit we will be back.More

We are regulars at Sokrates in Horwich and mostly have the meze, the quality is as good, if not better, than any we have had anywhere in Greece. This was the first time we have been in during the Covid crisis and were extremely happy,...the team ensure the tables and chairs are completely sanitised before each new group sat down and followed the guidelines to the letter. Atmosphere is very authentic, friendly with attentive staff and great food, what more could anybody want ( you can also get extra meze items on request)More

Stopped off at this little taverna, obviously popular with the locals however this was poor value for money. We decided to go for the meze which is a minimum of 2 ordering at £19.95 per person. The quality of food was tasty however the portions...for 2 people was small, we left hungry. At 40.00 for 2 of us. The meat selection that comes literally is one meatball per person, 1 small skewer per person and one small kofta per person. Seriously disappointed. The people who was ordering from the main menus food looked brilliant and what I would expect but this based on the meze I really have to only give a low star rating. I know people say quality over quantity however to pay full whack for a meal and leave hungry was disappointing. Sorry sokrates to be negative but I really feel you should give people a little more food for the value.More

Booked and visited as part of the 50% ‘Eat out to help out’. This was my first visit however the wife had previously been with friends and recommended. We ordered the Meze having great Cypriot experiences. The standard, quality and taste of all the food...was delicious. However, the quantity and frequency could be questioned. At one point we were left for 25 minutes (that I recorded) and we had to request the final portions of the Meze. Apparently they leave you to have a break - but I’m sure they don’t leave people that long. We enjoyed our visit and the lengths that the restaurant has gone are clear and they need to be applauded as it is the best I have seen - very safe at all times.More

Visited the restaurant for the first time last night. Myself and husband decided to try the Meze, what a delight. The waitress was super informative, explained everything to us as it came out to the table. The food was amazing, some of the dishes we...didn't think we would like, we absolutely loved. The aubergine dish and butter bean dish was fantastic, something I would never order but would without a doubt order again. The chef popped out every now and again checking everything was good, lovely personal touch. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be going back in the near future.More
