Excellent but a bit pricey food. Very good and friendly service.
Fantastic meal here as always , had the maze and was absolutely amazing. The staff are superb and always wear a smile.
Really good high quality Greek food
An excellent early evening meal with good food, service and value. Only recently rediscovered Sokrates after a long break, glad we did!
Gorgeous food - everything was delicious and the staff are so friendly - will definitely be back soon
2nd visit amazing food.. great service and will definitely be returning
Excellent in every respect. Relaxed, great friendly and helpful service and fab food. What more could we want?
Great food, restaurant and general ambience. Would recommend to anyone for a romantic or family meal. Kebabs were nice and tasty. Kofta was good with a nice kick. Spicy sausage starter recommended.
Loved the food - had the meze for 2 and were well fed with frequently arriving delicious plates. A really good meal and good value too.
Excellent home cooked food. The gigantes are wonderful as is the panapoul? Beef sausage. The Kofta kebabs are always good & the mousaka worth the short wait. Tasty & filling - too a doggy bag back. Worth the drivefrom Manchester & Bolton
Atmosphere good very authentic,food good,will certainly dine here again.
Lovely staff, amazing food. Highly recomme ded
Never had Meze before but the food quality was so good and there was plenty of it !
Very good value for money
Cheesecake to die for :)
Definitely worth a visit
Shabby interior -food great- definitely worth a visit
Perfect birthday meal. Great service, food and ambience.
Lovely food and a great host. Would definitely go there again if ever in the area.
Brilliant food as always. The Meze Banquet just seems to get better and better (if that is possible) . Cannot recommend this place enough and if you love the real taste of Greek/Cypriot food then go here
Excellent food. Up there in my top 3 dining experiences this year. The quality was phenomenal!
Just stunning. Intending to go for many years and while good friends have been often. They have consistently reported nothing but very special things from this hidden gem in Horwich. From start to finish there is a very amiable welcome into the tasteful and traditionally Greek setting. Cozy and full of genuine Mediterranean warmth. ALL staff very knowledgeable and VERY passionate, willing and able to explain each and every dish. Ingredients, source and cooking techniques along with flavoring. This is a Greek restaurant, you will be offered very tasty Greek wine, refreshing Greek Beer and Greek specialist drinks; and very good they all are too. Now if that`s not all enough, here comes the food. I really hope the owners don`t mind me saying, but the menu is very simple. Its Greek, its a Greek restaurant! ( did I mention that) But it is that simplicity that produces traditional Greek recipes to simply die for. We shared Kalamari, Souvlaki & Feta Sagnaki. The Kalamari was cooked to perfection, no element of chewy what so ever, the Souvlake Chicken was cooked to perfection and of course finished with our fave Tzatziki. Now the highlight of my night. The Feta Sagnaki. What an utter taste sensation and just about tastiest Greek food I have ever eaten. The coating was so light and delicately cooked to perfection ( our waitress did let me into Chefs secret on this ) I almost cancelled my Lamb Cutlets to order a double of this as my main. Glad I didn't though as the Lamb was superb. All round just perfect, hosts, atmosphere and food, what more could you want? Why haven't we been earlier? Well we certainly will be visiting again and very very, very soon at that.
It was our first visit and we opted for the Meze, every dish was superb the staff were friendly and very helpful - recommending the appropriate accompaniments to each dish. Very clean facilities, nice ambience and good value for money. Will definitely return.
Excellent food good service nice atmosphere and good value for money
I have been here a number of times and theres one main reason why... The Meze... it is an amazing selection of authentic greek foods which I would strongly recommend. Not to mention the staff are very informative and attentive. I love this place and will be returning for many years to come! Highly recommended.
This was a birthday meal so needed to be special and was the first time most of us had tried Greek cuisine. It did not dissapoint, the food was excellent and the restaurant has a friendly atmosphere. We will certainly go back and have the Meze next time.
Lovely food and great for Vegetarians, only criticism would be the price of soft drinks and alcoholic drinks - £4.95 for a bottle of beer is a little expensive! That said, we would return as the food is lovely!
Lovely food, good service, only comment would be needs a bit of a re-vamp.
Meze is a must, been twice now and the food is great.
I was far from impressed. Seated in back room, the decor needs a massive overhaul. Ghastly colour on the walls and awful old fashioned blind on windows.
Aside from the decor, no music meaning no atmosphere. Service was shocking!
Got asked twice about ordering drinks then a long wait to order food, I was close to walking out they took so long!
When we didn't order meze the waitress seemed shocked.
About 20minutes for the starter to arrive, after the starter we then had a long wait for main meal. Then wait for table to be cleared to be able to get the bill.
All dining areas should be tended too.
Was a really bad start to our date night, ruined the mood as I was really frustrated.
Five people all had the meze which we couldn't fault. Very friendly staff, good atmosphere, will certainly be going again.
A really homely feel, the lady. Who was serving was amazing, friendly and full of recommendations of what dips went with each of the dishes, she was very busy as the restaurant was very busy early in the evening but dealt with it all well. My wife is into Greek food more than I am and many of the Meze dishes we had I would never normally eat however they way they were cooked I thoroughly enjoyed them. I can’t fault the night out at all and will visit again soon. It was great to see the chef who was clearly busy out chatting to guests at times, including ourselves whom he made sure we were happy with the food. Lovely experience :)
Excellent as usual. We always go for the mezze. I recommend it and the baclava.
Great meal...lovely staff..had mezzo..superb food and great value for money...deffo be back
This was our first time and it won't be our last, greeted by lovely friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. The food was exceptional, a little hidden gem in Horwich. Thanks guys for a lovely evening x
Tasty food, friendly staff. Good value for money. Had a great time all round.
Food delicious. Staff were friendly. Atmosphere pleasant with a little charm. This is a really good local restaurant that provides a great evening dinner, will return.
Great service the food was very tasty and good couldn't fault it will be coming back again.
Great night out with lovely fresh ingredients in the food. As close as you will get to being on a Greek island without leaving Bolton!
As usual we were impressed by the standard of service and the quality of the food.
First time here and the food was amazing! Can't wait to go back
