We're staying at royal belvedere with a party of six. Wanted to get a away from the diner crowd at the hotel. Sofas is situated in old chersonisos. The restaurant has a pick up (and return) service from/to the hotel. We've had a very pleasant evening with good food. Nice service and to end a very... read more

Came here one night while in Crete! As I don't eat meat I tried to order fish but I was told they were all out of fish ! In the end I ordered courgette croquettes and garlic bread to eat as my main course. The croquettes were overly wet and had no taste while the garlic bread tasted like a... More

Great Welcome, Great food, Great Price, Amazing Dancing. A Brilliant Monday night out. This is a must go place for any local tourist. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. A perfect family place to have a greek night out.

We were lucky enough to stay near Sofas at the Diamond Villag in May. Kostas recommended Georgiou's restaurant to us and we were not disappointed. Food was superb, and service second to none. My fillet steak was so tender you didn't even need a knife. Great choice of dishes too and I had to return for a second meal on... More

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 recommend...!

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
