Used to come to Socratous garden every time we came to Rhodes when I was a child but after a bad visit last time a few years ago, haven't been since. We are on our honeymoon though and wanted to give it a try as I have such good memories of it being a lovely place to spend an evening.... More

We found this little gem whilst walking around, decided to go in for a drink, having met up with my son and daughter in law, who was staying at a different part of Rhodes, what a beautiful place, we were absolutely amazed with the setting, waterfalls and beautiful plants and fruit trees. Anyway, we left and then decided to go... More

We chanced upon this delightful restaurant while browsing the Old Town. We were in a shop selling all sorts as is usual in the area and at the back of the shop was a door that led to Socratous Garden. It is actually set between two streets and is a very attractive restaurant full of trees and a well. The... More

Great service. Been there three times so far and can recommend it. Great cocktails and wide range of spirits. Manager remembered us on each return visit even though the placed was packed.

Really nice setting on a lovely warm evening, music and good food and drink. Service was prompt and menu good. Nice to listen to the waterfall in the background.

Socrates garden is hidden amongst the bustle of the old town and is relaxing and welcoming. The friendly waiter Christos looked after us on most of our visits. Amongst the fruit trees and the water features this is a relaxing place to escape the sun and enjoy an ice cream or an ice cold drink.

Great value for money and staff are always pleasant. The food is brilliant and the setting is perfect. On hot sunny days this is the ideal place to cool off under the canopy of the trees.

We stopped here for afternoon cocktails on two of our trips into Rhodes Town and it is well worth it just to have a break from the shops on the streets outside. You are welcomed into a little green enclave with water features running in the background and welcome shade. There is a good selection of cocktails and mocktails for... More
