It's a cosy place, has a Parisian bistro atmosphere. The staff takes care of you and the food is tasty. What else to say?

This very traditional bistrot offers delicious French (and some swiss) traditional dishes such as ris de veau, souris d’agneau or entrecôte. Even the burger is upgraded with a joue de boeuf ! I die for the starter tartine crémeuse de champignons (mushrooms are just incredible)....More

We were greeted at the door, and the wait staff was very friendly and attentive all evening. The entrée of artichoke hearts was a little under cooked but tasted really good. I unfortunately ordered the entrecôte, which was nicely grilled but very tough. My friends...More

The charming decor was reminiscent of a parisian bistrot. The service was pleasant and very attentive. My friend ordered the souris d'agneau, while I chose the entrecôte parisienne. Both were served copiously with various potatoes and vegetables. Extensive wine-list. No room for dessert, unfortunately!

Nice ambience wasn't enough to offset poor food. For full disclosure we had booked through la fourchette (not that this should matter of course). My lamb tasted more like mutton (it's April). My wife barely touched her main course as it tasted strange (which I...More

I was at Le Socrate with a friend of mine that had a voucher on thefork.com. Food was great, there is a wide choice of French typical receipts: I advise the lamb with mashed potatoes that was simply excellent. Great thing is that we got...More

It is nice to find an old fashioned restaurant in Geneva still. The service was excellent and the wine by the glass good and reasonably priced. The service excellent. We chose traditional fare, slow cooked lamb in a succulent wine sauce, for our mains, the...More
