Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fabulous dinner. Very welcoming hosts. Excellent traditional food, so tasty and very well cooked. Thanks to the chef. Very attentive staff. Wish we had found this restaurant earlier in our holiday. Would highly recommend and would've loved to return, but last night tonight.

Wonderful secluded top restaurant. Both food and wine were carefully selected, prepared and served with great hellenistic hospitality. Well worth a visit. The kalamares, shrimps, falafel and filled tomatoes were all great, served with fresh salad and a modern touch to the traditional cuisine. The...tzatziki was particularly well prepared.More

The food was fantastic throughout the meal. For starters, we ordered a seafood salad and it was excellent. For the main course, I had lamb chops and they were so tasty. Could the restaurant share the secret to their seasoning? :) The house dessert and...raki were also excellent. The second raki was flavored with honey and cinnamon, and it was good even though I usually don’t like raki. The staff was extremely friendly. I also noticed how the staff entertained the children of the neighboring party. Big plus for those dining with children.More

The food was amazing and the staff very kind. We had a conversation with the owner also, he is very welcoming. The location is a bit uphill, but really worth the climb (this also means you get a great view). I can only recommend.

Had dinner at Socrates 2 evenings together with our big family @ 10 persons. The service was great and the food outstanding. Best moussaka we had in the entire week and all dishes were well cooked and well seasoned. The view from the restaurant was...spectacular and the walk up the hill was worth the payoff. If you are in Platanias - you must go here! We highly recommend!More
