Excellent

food in Sofia's is very reasonable priced for the quality. This is an exceptional restaurant. You have to wait a bit for the food as it is freshly cooked but well worth it. Tables a little to close for me.

Friends had booked a table for 2 lunch time. At the last minute they invited me.Upon arrival I was told by a waitress (after checking with the boss in the kitchen) that they could not fit in one more person! Looking at the bookings they had and the people in the restaurant, I did not believe them.

We have dined at Sophia's since it opened but for various reasons have not been back for almost a year. How silly! Sophia's superb value, warm greetings from the owners Laura and Drew and truly delicious, Michelin star quality food. Never have we been disappointed and if you haven't tried it, do so when next in Jacea, you won't regret... More

Another visit to Sofia's and again another superb dinner had by all This time with our children. The only down side I can see is the choice of menu is so good, thus making a decision on what to order is daunting But whatever choice your sure to be extremely pleased you did.... Keep it up guys

Visited Sofia's tonight for the first time and was honestly blown away. I'm a professional food photographer and have been fortunate enough to have eaten extremely well all over the world so can rightfully say Sofia's might well be the best restaurant in the area. Chef Drew has created spectacular and inspired dishes for all three courses on offer. Dishes... More

Amazing amazing food. Every course was a delight. Our only (minor) complaint was that it was very hot in the restaurant, not sure if the air conditioning was broken or switched off..

We visited Sofia's with friends recently and had the set lunch menu which was exceptional. The three courses were excellent value for money.

Great food, service and friendly staff. A small family run place. Great food, had the king prawn starter and lamb shanks for main. Both of which were terrific, and plenty of food. Finished off with Jam Roly Poly with poured cream... Another winner. Would certainly recommend a night here if you are in the area.

Another fabulous meal in Sofia's - perfect food, service and surroundings. Laura and Drew have even found time to re-decorate, lightening the whole room for an even better ambience, well done.

I'm a fussy eater but no matter what is cooked at Sofia's, it's all absolutely delicious. Atmosphere is cosy and staff fantastic. Give it a try, you will be back for more.
