A chance discovery on a rainy day, one I will return to. We went for lunch and had a mixed plate. There was too much to finish, which is unusual for us! Aromatic, perfumey food, this is good Lebanese food. They also have a selection of fresh pastries, the baklava type. Staff were attentive. Near to the main shopping street... More

A break from French food. This restaurant also offers a wide variety of vegetarian items. Food tasty and well prepared and staff very friendly. For a change, try a Lebanese wine.

We were looking for a halal option in Nice, there wasn't much places. La Socrates looked like a nice place. The food was fine but overpriced.

Hubs and I stopped here after flying into Nice from Rome. We stopped into our apartment to drop our bags and we were really hungry. Not knowing the area we found ourselves here, it looked okay and we were hungry so we stopped in. Food was good, it felt overpriced to me. Perhaps it was the area? Lots of places... More

I tried the Mezzes and they were really good and fresh: Hoummus, Eggplant, Tabouleh... For the main course I had Kafta. It was okay. The meat wasn't that good. It was too much grilled. So it was black. And it was too much lamb in it. But okay... The service was good and friendly.

By far the best Lebanese food in Nice if not all of southern France. The staff are friendly and the ambiance is also very inviting. It is situated next to Basilique Notre-Dame de l'Assomption, and next to a busy street with easy access.

A lovely setting just off the main shopping street with a view of the Notre Dame church. We got one schwarma which came with rice, pitta and salad and was very tasty and fresh and one menu Socrate adapted for veggies which was huge and delicious. The menu had one falafel, two cheese/spinach pastries, bean stew, chilli and walnut dip,... More

Great setting next to the cathedral, and great food albeit standard Lebanese. Very filling and for a reasonable price.
