One of the best meals we have ever had

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.

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.
