Sofia's my favourite restaurant in Javea

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.

Yesterday we visited Sofia's for their Thursday 3 course lunchtime special and what a treat it was. The food was truly wonderful, I started with Thai mussels, which were scrumptious, followed by chicken stuffed with cheese and Parma ham on a bed of baby roasted tomatoes, it was gorgeous. For desert I chose battered banana with ice cream and toffee... More

Having read many favourable reviews about this small family run restaurant we were pleased to find it this visit. The only negative is one that would be hard to overcome due to the physical layout of the restaurant inside. Our table was for 2 and was in the immediate entrance to the restaurant - resulting in no atmosphere with other... More

What a very nice place and the same about the people. Out of the way but were told where it was. Apparently they used to be in Moraira, wish they had stayed there. Food, atmosphere on the ball. Bread was served hot with hummus. Had a wonderful steak. Can't wait to return.

We went to Sofia's last night after many prior recommendations, and how glad we are. What a warm comfortable place, and what a warm welcome by the delightful hosts.. The menu iwas interesting and comprehensive, and when it was served, beautifully cooked and presented. We were also impressed by the house wines; both the white and the red were superb... More

Sofia's is my favourite resturant in javea, I often visit javea but no resturant has the quality of food or service to match. It's a small resturant so it's always best to book because they are very popular, the atmosphere in there is excellent and the service is excellent and very personal. The food is cooked to the highest standard... More

The food is very tasty and well presented but the service is very slow. Took an hour and a quarter for the starters to turn up and that was after me asking for the order to be taken. Also the plates were left on the table along time when finished. The setting is very nice and a lovely atmosphere.

I was sad to read the last couple of average reviews for Sofia's and have to spring to their defence. We spend a lot of time in Javea and would not miss an evening here. Although not located near the sea and with no outside seating, this cosy restaurant provides a wonderful dining experience with very well-priced, beautifully presented, delicious... More
