Have eaten in Sozo around 6 times in the last 6 months, for breakfast lunch and dinners and each time the food has been excellent. Very reasonably priced and staff are always lovely. Great fresh breakfasts, fries not greasy and good vegetarian options, light lunches and dinners all lovely too. Also love the fresh desserts, the cheesecakes are always great.... More

What brings me back here is when it's good, it's really good. Soups are excellent, great specials, nice coffee, reasonably priced, free Wi-Fi and good atmosphere. Couple of complaints would be- Had the chicken burger, which was presented well, but was flavourless and a bit of spice would have helped, also tasted a bit burnt in parts. Also tried an... More

My wife and I visit this restaurant on a regularly. We have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Food is always excellent. evening time is probably best time to visit. The menu is always fantastic and staff are particularly attentive. Restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and well laid out.

Went for a meal for our sons birthday. We had his two children with us and they could not have done more for us. Beautiful food and when the childrens food order of fish fingers came it was pure chunky fillets of fish. The steak I had was delicious as were all our meals. Service was brilliant too.

We went in here for lunch to give this restaurant a try as we had not been eating here since it changed owner ship. It was always a place that served tasty food at a very reasonable price. The interior had changed for the better and the new brighter colour scheme had certainly done a lot for this quite small... More

What a little hidden gem this place turned out to be! I stopped here for breakfast with my (Vegetarian) girlfriend. She had a large vegetarian breakfast whereas I had the 'wee' one. The food here was of a very high standard, the bacon had plenty of meat and wasn't the horrible stringy type you sometimes get in other restaurants, the... More

I am a regular to Sozo, it really is the best place to eat in Carrickfergus. There is a great selection on the menu and all good value. I love the pasta dishes and the lovely friendly staff will make you up a great sandwich or salad. I would recommend it for a delicious lunch or dinner at the weekend.
