Charming restaurant in a small alley within the old city section. Expect a gracious welcome from the owner, a delicious meal and an entertaining staff. You sit in close quarters to other guests so if you're looking for alone time this is not the place but if you want to experience an outstanding meal in a more communal setting then Sofra is it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our apps of fried calamari and seafood salad and our entrees of sea bass and lamb chops. Prices are quite reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Expect some free fruit for dessert and lots of free raki.

If you're fortunate enough to spend some in Rethymon, Sofra is not to be missed!

Perfect restaurant to taste traditional Greek food, awesome wine and homemade traditional Raki :) and of course meet with the Cretan hospitality.

Expected more,
perhaps our choice of food was to blame,
but the cooking was ordinary, presentation likewise & no break between courses. As it’s on the street, albeit quiet & good atmosphere, smoking was allowed & off putting.
Staff very friendly but would not repeat the experience.

Dear Spratton, we are sorry we did not meat your expectations. Our seating is outside therefore smoking is allowed, if we knew we could maybe seat people differently.
