Sofas is a place that has well and truely stolen my heart. From the hospitality of George and his staff, to the homely yet traditionaly stylish way of cooking and presenting their dishes, it's all I could possibly have hoped for when I proposed to my fiance here. They made it simply perfect. We were even lucky enough to be... More

We went here because we couldn't get a table at Harakas next door and we were not disappointed. They served a first class steak, tasty pizza and a fantastic Meze. The girls also had the fabulous mouth watering chocolate brownie. Fantastic atmosphere on Greek night, excellent position on the square and great prices.

After my visit to Sofas taverna, I wrote a poem for George and his staff and I thought I would share it with you all: S is for Sofas, the number one place to be. O is for order, my mezze selection was totally divine. F is for family, because for sure that's how you made me feel. A is... More

Our Thomas Cook rep recommended sofas as the perfect place to go for our final evening in Crete and she wasn't wrong! As soon as we arrived at the taverna George, the owner, was there to greet us and make sure that we enjoyed our night from start to finish. Being a group of typical Mancunians we don't get the...

We had a lovely meal at Sofas Restaurant - for me deciding factors in choosing where to eat are - Is it busy and secondly how the person persuading you in comes across. On this occasion the chap on the street was very informative , not pushy, or patronising. The restaurant was almost full and the food looked well presented.... More

The staff are very friendly & the food is lovely. My son loves steak & he says that he had the best steak he's had in Crete here. Lovely atmosphere in the square but it's a shame that the cars & motorbikes so close to where you eat.

Well, what can I say about this little hidden gem other than WOW! If you want a taste of traditional Greek cuisine, this is for sure the place for you. It has a beautiful setting up in the hills in a quirky little village which leaves you feeling like one of the locals. We ate from the "mezze" menu where... More
