Socrates is just "round the corner" from the main street in Skala but is definitely worth searching out Very welcoming with very helpful and attentive staff. All our dishes were excellent, particularly the Moussaka and the Lemon Pie. Would highly recommend

We had high hopes for this Taverna, arriving when it was fairly quiet and receiving lots of attention from the waiters. However this didn't last long, as soon as the place started filling up we didn't see them again for the rest of the evening....More

The food was really good. I had the beef stifado and the meat was melt in the mouth tasty. Friends were equally pleased with their choices and we would definitely recommend dinner here in the evenings. It gets really busy so get there early.
