This is a small restaurant with just a few tables. They have classical dishes on the menu and the food is very good and tasty. The service is very friendly and efficient. I can recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing dinner in a homey nice atmosphere.

I would not recommend for couple romance dining since atmosphere is very much for large group of people with too much noise inside.
The service is OK, a bit impersonal, a bit snobby but pretty efficient.

In fact it was by accident that I ran into this very nice little Lyon style restaurant in Geneva. The menu there is really special and you will find things which are rarely met at other places. I selected 'Atriaux et saucisse à rôtir, pommes purée' which was a real find.

Their signature appératif of spiced white wine is worth a visit.
It's getting hard to find sweetbreads in Europe -- or anywhere. Our hostess found Le Socrate for us, the only restaurant open on Saturday night that offered sweetbreads, cooked and served perfectly. Also rabbit kidneys in mustard sauce (don't knock it until you've tried it). Delicious escargots, not all that easy to find in Geneva. Very friendly waiter. The other diners thoroughly enjoyed their dishes of lamb and perch.
Make sure their credit card connection is working securely (it wasn't last night, "Désolé, messieux!") or you'll wind up emptying your pockets for every spare franc.

A few blocks walk from La Cour des Augustins - Boutique Gallery Design Hotel, Le Socrate is a hidden neighborhood gem. Great bistro food, well-presented by friendly staff. Always packed after about 7:00 PM. Interesting (basil flavored-fragrance) aperitif wine and a highly respectable wine list complement traditional French-Swiss fresh food bistro menu (in French – no translation, folks). Paris-like atmisphere interior. We will always try to return when we are in Geneva or passing through. Summer tartares were amazing. Highly recommended, but reserve in adavance. Le Socrate will not disappoint!
