We were warned about a big wait at this restaurant but we we dealt with promptly. The young man was very knowledgable and attentive. The food was an explosion of flavor. Every mouthful was divine. Good size portions. Price was reasonable. If you get a have have the chocolate ginger cheesecake. It was heaven. I would eat there every day.... More

Had a meal here. Now a la carte menu so you have as many courses as you like as before it was a set price. Food was excellent as usual as we have eaten here most years when visiting javea. I think it works out a little more expensive but not by much as the old menu had supplements for... More

We have been eating out in Javea for 27 years. For the last 5 years, Sofia's is by far the most consistent and best food and value in Javea

Delighted to have found this gem, we enjoyed an excellent meal here last night. The chef really understands how flavours work together - for instance the lime and avocado with my falafel burger lifted it to another level. Really special honeycomb ice cream sundae. Vegetarians like myself are well catered for which is a real bonus in Javea, which like... More

The food is cooked to perfection, it is located at the foot of montgo. Do not miss out on this exquisite food, you will not be disappointed, be warned... More

My daughter had heard about Sofia's so she booked it for her birthday meal. Located between the port and the town it is a real find. The restaurant was mostly filled with Brits, which did put us off a bit, but the food and the wine was excellent! I had the prawn skewers to start followed by liver and bacon... More

A super little jewel of a restaurant, family run, all products freshly cooked to order by a very professional chef. Service is friendly and spot on. Children are welcome too, but it is really for the grown ups. I can highly recommend Sofias, and do to all my clients that stay in my villas. They never let me down. Also... More

Visited again last week with my wife and 18 year old son, the menu is still good and the pricing of good value. Service can be a bit slow but they work hard and it may be intentionally slow (may not be slow to some people but 2hrs 15 for 3 courses is slower than I am used to -... More

Overall, the food was average for the better eateries in Javea. We visited when the owners had family over and their was a great deal of excitement going on at their table. Our table was right by the kitchen door and between the hot day, the proximity to the kitchen and the constant in and out of children/family into the... More
