An attractive restaurant inside and out; enough wood for warmth and windows for light. Service was helpful, friendly and attentive. Adequate wine list and bar, and a reasonably extensive menu fusing traditional Tico ingredients with twists and additions. The composed salad with greens and fruit was bright and palate cleansing; The croquettes of yucca and pork were nicely, albeit mildly... More

We had dinner a Monday evening and was surprised to find the restaurant empty when we arrived at 6 pm. Anyway, we had some fantastic cocktails to start with and by the time we had finished them the restaurant started to fill up. We tried (sweet & sour) ceviche and eggplant quesadilla as starters, both very good. For mains we... More

Excellent food, and a very nice menu. We were there for lunch and it was a very nice experience. Very good service as well. We'd eat there regularly if we lived close by. There are many choices and everyone I spoke to was very happy with their meals. (We were with a tour of 21 persons). Very clean. You will... More

The best restaurant we had in Costa Rica. There the food (and cocktails!) are very good and original. It's the first restaurant we ate in in Costa Rica and we couldn't find another one as good as d'Sofia. Moreoever, the staff is very friendly.

Had a lunch at this restaurant. Very nice and clean setting. I had the shrimp and fish chimichanga and my wife had chicken casadias. Both were excellent and we highly recommend them. The restaurant special drinks are very nice as well.

Lovely meal. We tried a number of different dishes and shared them all as a family. The service was solid. There was live music the night we went which really added to the already warm and inviting atmosphere.

The service was lovely here but the food was overpriced and average. I had the shrimp pasta with mango which was tasteless.

We picked this restaurant literally by an accident. Our rental car was broken down in the proximity. We checked a few restaurants nearby and picked d'Sofia. We definitely made the right choice. We tried five different dishes which were all delicious. The food was Latino fusion instead of Tico food. The drink and coffee were also very good. Due to... More

We had a great dinner with friendly and attentive staff. I had a hand made Margarita, and the sea bass. Laura had a cosmopolitan Ann's the shrimp. All perfectly cooked. And we shared the chocolate pie for desert. It is only a $4 cab from anywhere in Monteverdi.
