Nice people - nice food. Wine a bit overpriced. Otherwise a really nice experience.
Lovely theme to the restaurant, as someone who's lived and travelled in Greece and the Islands I was pleasantly surprised it was like a traditional taverna. The main waitress was quite abrupt though, a little clinical in the descriptions of the dishes as we overheard her say the same thing to every table in the restaurant, and we could see that she wasn't happy with the younger waitress on that evening (who we have no qualms with, she was attentive and had a smile!) The meze was very rushed, dish after dish arrived and we felt a little rushed with no time to enjoy the food, we were felt we weren't eating quick enough - other greek meze's I've had they wait and ask if you're ready for the next selection. Our son young wanted to have a little more of the calamari from our meze, and instead of just addding a few to a dish we were charged with a full side plate dish of calamari with fries at £7 which we thought was a little tight. When main's and meze was over, we waited 20 minutes before WE asked to see the desert and coffee menu. Service I would say certainly wasn't up to greek standards, especially charging full price for a few bits of calamari for an eager child ontop of an over priced meze really £20 per head with no option to try more of any dish! The rose wine was expensive and not very nice (my husband said the red was OK) But we enjoyed the atmosphere and although overpriced, the food was tasty, but could have been a little more relaxed, and I'd say bigger portions - especially of the salad and dips!
First time at Sokrates Taverna and we had the meze which seemed a great way to trial the different types of food on offer. It was busy as you would expect for a Saturday night but many tables were enjoying the meze which you would assume would make things run smoothly and at a nice pace however, we didn't find that to be the case. When our meze began we suddenly got five dishes in one go and on a small table for two it was a little cramped! Luckily this slowed down but became the opposite when we waited quite sometime to be given dishes. The food was AMAZING and delicious but no one person seemed to be serving our table and so this led to what seemed slow service and confusion as to what we had or hadn't been given (looking at the menu on return home we 'missed' a couple of dishes) - even we became confused! At the end of our meal we wanted dessert and we watched two large group tables be asked and served dessert and coffee before we were even able to grab a member of staff to ask for a dessert menu. It took us 25 minutes and for such a small place this is saying something! Honestly, the food was worth going to the restaurant and may be we just picked a particularly chaotic night for service. The food was good enough we would consider trying again....fingers crossed the service and chaotic serving style was just a one off!
Fantastic communication from reservation to dining. Staff team all friendly and welcoming. Warm reception. Professional and friendly wait team. Helped with allergy information and were able to cater for dietary needs. Very comfortable yet opulent surroundings great environment relaxed yet full tables. Clearly a popular restaraunt. Menu catered for all tastes Greek. Reasonably priced and good value and quality meals and appetisers. Chefs thank you for the quality, flavoursome and enjoyable meals you prepared and cooked. Drinks menu again varied with traditional beverages on offer. Was able to pay with ease and on leavingthe restaraunt we were given a warm good bye from majority of the staff team. Definitely recommend Sokrates Greek Taverna @ Horwich Look forward to visiting again.
The owner was a bit much at the table. I have done studies in hosting myself and I always was told that the people are there’s to enjoy the evening, be invisible. This was not the case. My boyfriend also let me know that she was petting and stroking his back when she came to socialise, for someone who hates it that strangers touch him, I found this not professional. The food was good, but we had the sausages and rice wrapped in leafs first course and it was quick and delicious. The main course took a long time to come out do the kitchen even though we were one of the first diners there. Overall I give the restaurant 8/10 just because the food was so insanely good.
went on a tues evening , nice cosy authentic looking Greek taverner , food was very good , we had an a carte menu , but did look at meze , which looked really good value . the food we had was very tasty and fresh, olives , bread and dips were excellent , the lamb kofta was exceptionally good 👍, all washed done with some mythos . to sum up good value good food great service in nice surroundings , what more could I ask for , give it a go , am sure like me you won't be disappointed !
The food is delicious and the staff are friendly. There were 4 of us and we had 3 courses each which we don’t usually do but couldn’t resist! I recommend the Kalamari, spinach and feta parcels (I forget the Greek name) for staters and chicken slouvaki and aubergine imam combination for main. Although all our dishes, including the Meze have been excellent on previous visits. Don’t be put off by the decor on entering, this place is always busy which speaks for itself. A little bit of Greece on our doorstep. Will be back soon.
