Great food, great atmosphere, good prices

This is my favorite place to go to in fountain hills. The atmosphere is eclectic, and their bruschetta board is imaginative and always tasty. I love bringing my friends and family here when they come to visit, and they are alway impressed. Prices get high if you don't order the bruschetta board... read more

We had bruschetta, pork pernil, shrimp tacos. The bruschetta were tasty, but the main meals were unremarkable, except in their mediocrity, especially the pork pernil. It seriously lacked flavor. The shrimp tacos portions were too small for dinner. I would not revisit Sofrita.

We stopped in for lunch. This is a very tiny restaurant that's very unique. I had the Ojitos Chinos. Basically that was a grilled chicken salad with spicy cashews, mandarin onions, carrots, tortilla strips and ginger dressing. The chicken was slightly dry but very tasty. I thought the cashews were very tasty and were very sweet but then got spicy... More

We found Sofrita by accident and are glad we did. The food was great: we shared some tapas and then had tacos. They have an outdoors seating area, but we were there in June (over 100 outside). We will definitely go back when we can enjoy the views of the fountain from the patio.

Great sidewalk café on the Avenue of the Fountains in Fountain Hills. This placed was started back a few years by the owners of Redendos Pizza also here in Fountain Hills. The flavor and menu here is inspired by Cuban food and the "street Tacos" are my favorites. The place is small so not the best for large groups but... More

This is always a must visit restaurant when we are in the Scottsdale / Fountain Hills area. One recent visit happened to be on Mother's Day. We made reservations and were promptly seated upon arrival. Family meal meant a variety of items were ordered - all delicious! The sangria is always loaded with fresh fruit - great touch! The patio... More

Stopped by this place as the smells were great. If this restaurant was located in a more happening area like Scottsdale, it would be a place where the wait lines would be long. Everything we tried on the menu was great. Portions were generous.

This was our first time here and it won't be our last. We sat in their front patio, which is on the street but under a cute palapa. I ordered the Hibiscus Tea vodka drink since another reviewer had liked it. Too sweet for me. The menu is tapa style, all small portions but enough to share a lot of... More

We have been aware of Sofritas for a while now but never went. I thought my hubby would like it based on a casual review of the menu. He doesn't like much in the way of Mexican type food. Our daughtera and hubby went in March while on a visit here. They loved itand told us a few things we... More
