The food was first class. The deco was still Christmas...not bad... but in March?
Still, I would choose to eat there again!

Cafe Sofia in Big Bay has been the worst culinary experience I've EVER had! Being a lover of spanish tapas, I was bitterly disappointed at the quality of the food, and the tasteless dishes served. Service was slow and some of the dishes we ordered were not available because "the kitchen hadnt started preparing the next batch"!!!!

Cafe Sofia is okay, their food is nothing amazing and the breakfast is cheap though but basic. I think they are a bit pricey for the standard kind of food they have to offer.

Cafe Sofia: Blaauwberg: What a heartache this must be for such a beautifull setting of our beautifull Cape Town!!Went there on 03/10/12 after a beautifull walk on the beach with family visiting. What we hoped would be turned out to be a treat turned out to be actually a horror. Don't bother ordering the tapas as this is so little food that you will still be hungry when you leave. I ordered a salad with my meat and only received some leaves with feta. After asking the waiter, she went to found out from the kitchen and guess what: that they ran our of cucumber and tomatoes! But excuse me: isn't that sort of the main ingredient in salad. Fish of the day (yellowtail) was so-so, sushi was so-so, only thing ok was the steak. when we wanted to pay we were told that there card machine wasn't working. Ok, but why did you not say any thing about that before we sat down? Sorry but for a place being so expensive maybe they should have a good look and see what is happening. Come on guys you can make this a great place to eat.
