“A must visit !! Great Food, Great Atmosphere !!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were recommended this restaurant from the owner at our Villa, she said it was one of here favourite restaurants, and it did not disappoint !!! There was a great atmosphere and we were made feel really welcome. It was family run and was also full of local people who all looked to know the owners... We chose the menu option and it was excellent, amazing food and a great price (4 course for under 12 Euro) . Would eat there again ANY time !!!

“Super Lunch”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Had a late lunch with my wife as a result of reading reviews on trip advisor.
It was superb. The quality of the food was excellent, beautifully presented and the staff were first class.
This is a little gem of a restaurant serving really tasty food at reasonable prices.
Would highly recommend a visit!

“Even if you have tried a lot of Greek cuisine this place still surprises you!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Sokaki is situated on one of the side streets off the waterfront, the one with versivious (italian restaurant) at the top if you are travelling from the main road.

The restaurant is split over the street which seems strange until you see how busy it gets. And has a feel of stepping into someones house as it is relaxed and welcoming.

One of the earlier reviews described the menu as off putting and I can see why as it had pictures on and cuisines from all over which normally isn't a good sign however I'm so glad it didn't put us off. You should come here if you want to try real Greek cuisine done well.

The service was a little slow to start with as they were so busy and I would suggest that if you have a table close to the street as it would be a little cooler, (there's no traffic to speak of). Other than that no complaints.

The staff were welcoming and happy to explain what is in some of the Greek dishes as they are not all explained on the menu. I went for brechin meze which is shown in the photo, this literally translates as 'drunkards snack' which is slow cooked lamb in redwine and tomatoes with cloves and spices. The sauce was rich, tangy and divine.

Starters are huge so maybe choose one between you. And it is cheap particularly considering the quality.

We went here on our last night and I'm so pleased we did.
