Description: Sokrates Taverna on Northenden Road in Sale is a super-friendly, casual Greek & Mediterranean restaurant serving delicious cuisine from Greece and Cyprus. The Meze menu at Sokrates Taverna with its variety of dishes is perfect for parties and group get-togethers and the restaurant's wine list has an excellent selection of wines plus beers from Greece and Cyprus. From the A'la Carte menu one can enjoy traditional dishes like Stifado (a beef and onion casserole), the classic Mousaka and of course delicious meat skewers (kebabs) cooked on real charcoal.

We have just returned from Sokrates tonight and i have to say the food was excellent.

Being a bit of a greek foodie after visiting Greece over a dozen of times, we had high expectations and this place did not disappoint.

We both went for the meze and boy it was tasty. Lots of really good dips, meat and greek treats.

Hospitality was perfect and the 2 guys were great.

Thank you so much, we will come back one day.

Highly recommended.

Found the portions very big, but not very tastey. Houmos & pitta nice. Staff nice. I know it's a Greek taverna but I do think they need to spend a bit on the look of the place inside & out. A lot of competition in sale now.

Loved all the food at this restaurant, even the vegetarian options. We always have the mezze banquet as it gives us a variety,I really wouldnt know what to order off the main menu as everything is so delicious!
Been here more times than anywhere in Sale, good value for money aswell as nice helpful staff. We even booked here for my fiancees 40th birthday for 22 of us. Everyone loved the food and wine on offer. The manager allowed me to go early and set up the table decorations and balloons etc. I remembered when everyone was eating that we had a vegetarian guest.....I was mortified! I told the manager, and literally 5 minutes later.....a vegetarian platter was brought out with no fuss or extra charge! Fantastic place :)
Although from outside and inside its a bit tired looking, once the foods in your mouth you dont care!

Second time at this restaurant. Lovely starters. Not so great main course. My tsatsiki was more like garlic mayo.. And yes I've had tsatsiki on many a Greek Island. The service was slow but very friendly.
