I did not know this restaurant because it was hidden behind the main street. On the way to our hotel El Establo in Monteverde, I noticed a lot of signs for restaurants, souvernir shop.... So in the afternoon I walked to the intersection and read the signs and found restaurant Sofia as Latin fusion cuisine. I checked the restaurant on... More

This is a lovely restaurant, the food is modern, interesting and tastes fantastic. The sweet & sour taste of the ceviche was a fantastic twist on the ones you normally get in Costa Rica. Save some space for deserts, the chocolate chimichanga we had was superb. If you are in the Monteverde/Santa Elena area, this is without doubt the best... More

The food was extremely good. We had three different appetizers, three entrees and two desserts. Every bite was scrumptious. The ambiance was lovely. The service attentive but not overly so. We loved Sofia and recommend to anyone traveling through Monteverde.

Our meal at Sofia's was the best food we had during our 10 day trip to Costa Rica. All 5 of our dinners were absolutely delicious. The beef was some of the best I've EVER had. Fish was also prepared perfectly. Ambience/decor is charming and our waitress was top notch. Well worth it!

We LOVED the food here. We are members of the community so it is a bit pricey to do an a regular basis, but it was such a lovely treat for Valentine's night. The menu is Latin fusion and so the food was a nice creative twist on more traditional dishes. It was delicious gourmet food that we enjoyed every... More

We dined at Sofia's in early May 2015 and had a very nice meal. I ordered the guava chicken (which looked nothing like the other reviewer's picture, so I was a bit surprised) and my dining partner ordered the pork loin, which she said that she enjoyed. My chicken was quite tasty, it was perhaps the biggest chicken breast I... More
