My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the apartments and eat here each night, having discovered the restaurant last year - again a delight, fresh and traditional Cretan food cooked at the open grill of an excellent standard and reasonably priced, great service offered by the family members who made us feel at home as before, plied us with raki to finish off the meal, so we slept VERY well each night.
Location is fabulous, truly seafront and with a lovely view of the sunset - we will be back...

Found this little gem on a walk down the road the only one not to be pressuring us to walk in although was full. We took the plunge and were not disappointed . Great Greek food fantastic family run service and looked after very well . Prices reasonable would definitely recommend

My husband and I visited this restaurant last year with our daughter. It was a firm favourite and we went 2 times during our visit. We've returned back to stalis and have struggled to find a restaurant that's as good. We visited today and it certainly did not disappoint at all. We had the mixed starter for two which was lovely . Calamari was fresh and batter was light. Pickle squid was tasty too. Dips were all home made!!! For mains we stuck to traditional and we were not disappointed we had meat balls in sauce mmmmm and I had stifado which was tasty- no frozen veg here. We were stuffed after all this and were give some water melon to finish it off very nice touch. Can't recommend this place enough if you like fresh home cooked food this is the place to go!! Price very reasonable and great service xxx

Had best meal in Socrates last night. Very friendly service, the owner is area character and quite entertaining!! Food was fresh and excellent and very reasonably priced. We were too stuffed!! to try dessert but the complimentary Melon and Raki went down a treat. Definitely recommended for amazing Greek food.
