“Perfect, peaceful Paradise”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This was our second visit to Socratous Garden Rhodes. We stumbled upon it on a day trip to Rhodes from Turkey last year. This year we came back to Rhodes for 2 weeks and knew we have to revisit this peaceful paradise. It is a perfect place to rest on a hot hot day. The food is excellent I can recommend the Greece meal for 2. Both the staff and the parrot are friendly :)

“Chill out in the garden”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Although touristic, there is a nice garden full of green and running waters, staff is very polite and there is free wi-fi.

“A hidden oasis”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We first stumbled upon this hidden oasis on an extremely hot afternoon and we were so charmed by the tranquil setting that we returned another two times during our visits to Rhodes town. There was a friendly welcome but after ordering our drinks we were left to sit, relax and enjoy the shade.
It was lovely to be allowed to enjoy the lovely setting without being pressured to order food or more drinks if we didn't want to. (However we did sample the food on a later visit and found it to be very good).
This garden is hidden amongst the hustle and bustle of the old town shops and it feels like a 'secret garden' as it doesn't appear to be overly advertised yet people seem to just stumble upon it and return time and again.

“Beautiful garden and very friendly staff.”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Even though the menu for food is not very varied, the big garden and friendly staff compensate in full.
Situated in the old center, on one of the busiest streets, the garden is quiet and provides a great place to retreat from all the noise and heat of the lovely but crowded town.
The garden is big and provides lots of natural shade as it has lots of trees and plants.
It id a good place for a break from visiting and shopping. Relaxing and cool.

“Nice little haven from the heat...”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Just off the Main Street in the Old Town, this is a nice place to visit for a couple of drinks.

It's calm, serene, shaded and spacious. You're not "lined up in rows" like some of the other tourist places in the heart of the Old Town.

Service is good, prices are just what you would expect. We've been visiting this place for a number of years, probably could do with a bit of "something else" (not sure what!) and will make sure we drop in next year aswell.
