Some of the best Dolmades we have ever had! Hubby had the lamb shoulder and said he has never had anything like it. I had the chicken souvlakia, and it was great - roasted veggies were perfect. Would love to go back ;)

The slow cooked lamb shoulder was perfectly cooked and melted off the bone and the beef moussaka was delicious. The staff we're really friendly and there was a great atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Ate there with friends on a Thursday evening and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was delightful and atmosphere very friendly. BYO wine and only a small corkage fee help make it very good value. Shared starters between the four of us and they were all excellent. Mains were good too - I had a lamb kebab which was... More

I have been to Sophie's a couple of times now and have enjoyed the food on every visit . The slow cooked lamb is very good and the set menu is great for groups . If going with children I would suggest to dine early as it get"s busy after 8 pm . Note that the restaurant is upstairs so... More

My partner and I have visited Sophie's several times over the last couple of years and we continue to be impressed by the consistently good service and quality of the food. This is a very friendly place where customer relaxation and enjoyment are the priority of the management, and as locals we really appreciate having a "local" restaurant that provides... More

Not the usual Greek fare, the menu is quite interesting. Went there with a group of 15 and shared a buffet - aside from some of the standard Greek items, there were a few quite unusual (and very tasty) dishes - and more than enough to eat, all at a very reasonable price. Went back again just the two of... More

Well it's a classic Greek feast in a crowded, happy and noisy upstairs restaurant again run by Sofie in a new location. The food is good, the service is medium, the BYO or ordered wine you can just about open and pour yourself, unless you really want to wait. It's like going to a Greek friends house for a big... More
