Food is divine, in over 7 visits I have tried many dishes all great. A gem of a restaurant. Superb entrees and mains. I never seem to have room for desert. Perhaps we over order as the menu is so appealing.

I was so impressed with the delightful Greek food, generous helpings that I have my niece and her family travelling from the Central Coast to accompany my husband and I for dinner at Sofie's. The salads are a knockout, homemade Moussaka, succulent lamb and the list goes on. My husband wouldn't go past the octopus, tender as, and Sofie, well,... More

The hostess is abrupt and an absolute nightmare. I was terribly insulted and never going back there. I don't want to pay hard earned dollars for a traumatic experience. Customer service is number 1 on my priority list and there are other great places in Balmain. Go elsewhere.

Vicki, posting a bad review about the restaurant as a retaliation to a personal vendetta is not nice. Sofie More

Went here last night as part of a monthly group get together. The hosts have a lot of character and are very welcoming. They take plenty of pictures of the group and then email them on which is a nice touch. As we had a group of 14 we had to choose a banquet option. Normally this is bad but... More

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
