Description: Sophie is a Peruvian taperia that presents a free creative cuisine with advanced techniques and first class sustainable products. We have the most important Cold Bar in Lima where seafood and fish predominate, which can be accompanied by a wide selection of drinks from our Bar. Our Tapas or ¨Petit Classics¨ are made very easy to share by their size and fun and casual design. The background dishes range from daily creations to our artisan meats. All this in an atmosphere with great taste in design and a casual atmosphere.

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We were exploring the neighborhood on a Sunday afternoon and found Sophie and thought we would give it a try. Am glad we did! We got in before the big lunch crowd and had the place and staff to ourselves. A nice small place in a residential area, off the beaten path and away from the noise and bustle of Lima. This will be a place to return to for the quiet adult dinner. Good wine and pisco selection.

“Excellent Starters, Excellent Cocktails.”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Sophie is a very unassuming little bistro on a quiet street. We simply had a marvelous time there. We decided to drink a Pisco Sour (Pisco with lime, sugar, ice, and a bit of egg white foam), and Chicano's, the famous traditional drink with Peru's Pisco Wine (a triple distilled, elegant and pure drink that should conquer the world). The Chicano resembles the Mojito, but is a bit more sour, and has more character. Instead of having starter and dinner, we simply ordered starters and kept them coming. Agui de Gallina, Chicharron, Jumbo shrimp, Pulpo and some other dishes. The night was a great success, we enjoyed ourselves, and ended up leaving on a week day well after mid night. Great cocktails, outstanding food. Loved it.

“A bit irritating service but excellent food”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Sophie is a beautiful restaurant - one really feels comfortable here. I went there with 5 colleagues from 5 different countries and all were pleased with the food, but irritated with the service. Simple questions were answered by the waiter in a way that noone really understood what he meant (even if 2 of the group are native spanishspeakers). The menu is a bit complicate to understand - how can e g the tapas that are cheaper than the maincourse be larger than the maincourse? - that was what the waiter claimed.
Also when asking on specific plates - the answers just got so complicated so one avoided to ask further.
But if one has the luck to avoid this specific waiter - or just ignores him and concentrates on the food- this is a nice bistro like place. Looong menu, lots of plates to choose from (if you just avoid letting the waiter choose for you - which he tries,,,).

“Just keeps getting better and better”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Beautifully refurbished old bodega in Miraflores. Uber cool ambiance, but still very low key. Outstanding interpretations of Peruvian traditional dishes - keeping the real flavours in modern presentations. Attentive service. Interesting wine selection. Open till late. Great prices for the fantastic quality you get. Works either as a restaurant, a bar or a tapas bar.
