Greek cuisine is all about sharing and having fun. After all, if you’re going to smash plates, you need a lot of people to generate dirty dishes to be dashed across the floor in a fit of Zorba-induced pique. Sokrates Taverna on Northenden Road in Sale is a restaurant that brings a sense of sharing and caring to the Manchester dining scene, with their authentic take on Greek and Cypriot cuisine, as well as the whole ambience that goes with it.
Any Greek meal should begin with a selection of mezze, and at Sokrates Taverna in Manchester, they have quite the selection to pick from. Veggies will appreciate the hummus, tzatziki and skordalia, and carnivores can choose from the pastourmas, the Greek sausage, dolmathes and, of course, souvlaki. Visitors to Northenden Road in Sale in search of something more hearty can indulge in stifado, kleftiko and gigantes – the possibilities are almost endless. Booking in advance is recommended!
Great food, fantastic service and value for money. Very pleasant atmosphere with friendly helpful staff. One of our party has dietary needs and this was not a problem.
Love food and staff. Been lots of times. Great atmosphere. Not too big so feels welcoming. Highly recommended for Greek food. Not expensive. Great time
As always a fantastic authentic Greek experience!! Great meze and fantastic service. We are will defiantly return, this is our favourite place to eat without a doubt
Fantastic food, just like being in Greece, friendly staff, great atmosphere would recommend a visit our friends travel 40 miles regularly to eat their baked feta
We went on a Saturday evening, good job we booked as it was pretty full even at 18:30. We chose the meze banquet which meant we had a little bit of loads of different dishes. Needless to say we didn't finish it as there was so much even for 3 people. Great service and good atmosphere. Will go back.
Everything was fantastic! First visit to Sokrates but will not be the last. The dips were extremely tasty and plentiful, we also had the battered feta which was lovely and light and the spanokopita. For mains we had the Kalamari and the Stifado (both very generous portions) and the cheesecake and baklava to end. Cannot praise it enough
We booked same day we wanted to go. Arrived on time no waiting for our table. The meza we had, was excellent, too many courses but we ploughed through, thoroughly enJoyed everything. Great attention for staff but not intrusive would recommend this restaurant. Feel like we spent an evening in Greece it was good and we will return.
Fantastic as always!!! Quiet Monday evening at the restaurant, we had a table of 7 to celebrate a friends birthday, staff very welcoming and couldn't have done more. 5 of us had the full meze, far too much food as always, leftovers was taken home to eat today. We will be returning soon
Another excellent meal, as ever. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and authentic Greek food, occasionally with a creative twist. The spanakopita (spinach and feta filo parcel) was stunning, and that cheesecake - made with Greek yoghurt and topped with spiced baby figs - is so irresistable I have to order the same thing every visit!
We had the meze, which was lovely. Cold dips and salads, hot starters then mains. A great variety but not too much - we managed to finish it all! Service was just right, giving us time before our main course without being slow. Red wine, the cheapest on the menu was also very nice. We love Greek/Cypriot food and really enjoyed our meal.
Amazing food! Amazing service! I would definitely recommend going for the Meze, lots of tasty food and perfect for sharing. The restaurant itself has a real Mediterranean feel and if I didnt know better I would of thought I was there somewhere on the Greek islands. Great experience.
I have eaten at This place before so I knew I would be good, and it did not disappoint, for my friend it was the first time and she loved it, she said she would definitely eat there again. Wonderful food, excellent service. 10 out of 10.
Friendly service and tasty good quality food and wine as always. There are so many restaurants to eat in around Sale and it is a testament to Sokrates Taverna that they are still going. Nice enough environment to dine in and would easily score a 5 if the decor and facilities were updated.
Food was very good. We had the meze banquet, which was a selection of hot and cold dishes. Although the portions are not large there were so many tasty dishes that none of us could manage a dessert. Service was a little slow at first, but overall was good. Will go again!
I chose the Taverna based on Trip Adviser reviews that ranked it as second best Greek restaurant in Manchester. The reviews were justified and the meal was excellent. It somehow has the feel of a Greek village taverna with a friendly welcome.
Nice people and good value food. Mezza is definitely recommended. The only minus point is that we've been going there for years and the menu never changes. It would be nice to see new dishes (plus no freezer chips with the calamari!). Good, fresh tasting and enjoyable food. Well recommended.
Great food however the various menus on offer make things quite complicated. Also the staff could be a little friendlier and spend a little more time explaining the multiple menu options. Portions also seem to be closely scrutinised - we asked for more pitta to finish the dips off and the waitress brought us 1 - for a party of 5!
The food was excellent and value for money. The staff were helpful and friendly and explained what some of the things on the menu were.I would definitely recommend having a meal here it had a lovely atmosphere. Jane from sale
Group of 5 ladies catching up with 4 of us ordering the meze banquet ... omg so much food and all tasted delicious. Service from the extremely smiley young gentleman was warm and friendly. Quiet as a Sunday but lit and decorated well and so a lovely environment.
Very tasty food and what I do enjoy is it's a place where you can hear your dinner ompanion, no overly loud background music. Call me old fashioned but dining out is about, good food, good wine and good conversation. Sokrates manages to cater for all these.
