First, when you stay at Villa Medusa, you get a welcome drink for free. We visited Sofas on Monday and it was quite full, due to Greek night. We informed the staff that we´re from Medusa and they did their best to find us a table. Food was very good, price avarage. Beer was cold just enoug. We... read more

We were staying in Hersonissos Old Town and were told about Sofas by the owner of our hotel - his god son owns it and the first drinks were on him to welcome us to Crete. We were not disappointed - Dimitri was so welcoming and friendly, the sangria was delicious, and our meal was amazing. So much so we... More

We ate here twice during our recent stay in Piskopiano. To our delight, the waiter, Dmitri, we had met before, in Piskopiano during last year's visit, and in typical Cretan fashion, remembered us straightway! We decided to eat here on our first night and then met friends from UK here later in the week. The restaurant in situated on the... More

Myself, my husband and our daughter had our first holiday in Crete last week. One lunchtime we called into Hersonissos Old Town and had a drink in Sofas where we had a very friendly greeting from Dimitri which made us want to return for an evening meal. When we did, Dimitri introduced us immediately to Georgiou (the owner) and his... More

Our party of 21 enjoyed a meal here. The age range was between 6 - 87. We ordered Greek meze and were not disapointed. The food came thick and fast and at one point we had to ask the owner to slow down bringing the dishes! All the dishes were cooked in front of us in an open oven/fire. Would... More

I was in Crete at the end of season so everywhere was quiet. Staying in Koutouloufari I decided to venture to the Old Village of Hersonissos one night for dinner (don't confuse with the new town this village is up on the hill). There is a number of taverns set around the village square and though not busy there was... More

We ate here on our last night in Crete hoping to make it a special meal. It was also the weekly Monday music and dancing night in Old Hersonissos where the village square is packed. We had been recommended Sofas and duly booked ahead as we knew everywhere would be busy. We were greeted well and shown to a nice... More

On arrival you are greeted by George and his beautiful wife and family. He never forgets a face or a name, and the atmosphere makes you feel home. The Menu has a large variety, from Greek traditional cooking to international cuisine. Sofas serves Breakfast, lunch and dinner. The portions are quite large and the wine is one of the best... More
