Just off Socrates Street, this restaurant serves good food at a reasonable price although the menu is fairly limited.
Set in a nice garden with fountains and citrus and pomegranate trees it is a haven on a hot day.

What a wonderful place to sit and relax and let the world go by, My friend and I sat down to have a coffee and ended up staying for a meal and drinks while we chatted and generally "chilled" as my daughter would say

When we came back to Rhodes in July we tried to find Sokratous Garden. Difficult, especially as we remembered it as the 'Secret Garden' (our unreliable memory) but we pursued and found it in the end. On our first holiday we went most days into the Old Town and always ended up at this lovely place to have a glass of wine. This time we stayed further away and only came once to the Old Town but, as I said, made sure we went to Socratous Garden and we had a nice meal. Our granddaughter was also impressed with the setting. Definitely a place to revisit.

Excellent place to drink cold beer or/and hot tea/coffee. This place is a beautiful green garden located in the center of old town of Rhodes. Very peaceful. The service is obliging, gracious and funny. The menu is not that rich, but you can find local greece cuisine dishes.
This place is hard to find for the first time, but once you did - you will find yourself there more than once. We visited this place 4 times in two visits to Rhodes. And we would visit this place again.
Absolutely reccomended.

The best thing about Socratous Garden is stumbling across it as you meander around the shops. There are no staff outside hassling you to come in and then charging you a fortune for gimmicks, drink and food.
The staff here are very friendly and there are many people who return here year after year including us to just take time and chill in the garden with a nice cocktail or cold beer listening to the running water and escaping the hoards of tourists outside shopping for gifts.
The food here is also very reasonable and good size portions. They also give you free snacks with your drinks which is a nice touch. So thanks George Nick and all the staff for being such great hosts. See you next year.
