We have just spent two weeks in Plakias and would like to recommend to everyone this wonderful taverna. We tried others in the area but found ourselves returning to Sofia time and time again.
Eleni the owner, Tatiana and Basili (hope I've spelt these correctly - sorry if I havent guys) made our visits to their restaurant such a lovely relaxed experience. The food was delicious no matter what we ordered.
Families, couples and single travellers were all made to feel equally welcome and staff assisted in explaining the dishes if you were unsure and nothing was too much trouble. You were never rushed to finish your meal and the staff were just brilliant. We hope to return to Plakias in the near future and look forward to returning to Sofia for more of their excellent food.

It's a nice restaurant right on the beach with lovely views into sea. the food was nice, but not exceptional, fairly pricy too. house wine felt a bit diluted compared to other places.

When on holiday we try several restaurants that have been recommended until we find one that we really like, then find ourselves drawn back to it for the rest of the holiday. We have been to Plakias three times and eaten in several restaurants and have not have a bad meal at any of them. The restaurant we favoured because of the good all round experience of food, friendly staff and good ambiance was the Sofia. You will be invited in with a warm welcoming smile and greeting from Tatiana at front of house who speaks good English as well as several other languages. When inside we were served or helped by Basilis, Eleni and Maria, who were happy to explain what was on the special boards or the menu. We would suggest you put the Sofia on your recommend list and see if you agree with us.
