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

Very, very overpriced, does not in any way represent good value for money and they run a scam on the wine. Set menu includes wine or an allowance per head against a wine chosen from the wine list. When the bill arrived the allowance of only 505 of us had been applied to the bottles of wine we chose from... 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

I have been here several times over the past few months and have had a great meal every time. Ideal for a romantic evening or even a business dinner. This is not a large restaurant and always busy so advisable to book in advance. High quality food with very good service. Recommended.

I have been a big fan of this restaurant for a long time and visit numerous times a year despite its out of the way location and poorly air conditioned dining room. The key has been consistent high quality food,good front of house service and value for money. In June the restaurant has moved from a fixed price menu including... More
