“Perfect spot, great food, nice view”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We had lunch here Sept 18th 2011. View on Cala Vadella beach is awesome (which is a nice beach by the way). We ordered salmon and the "Ibiza Bullit", which basically is a fish stew with garlic potatoes and a big Paella on the side. I think this was probably one of the best meals we had during our stay on the island. Service was great. Maybe a bit slow for some but we like that since we're not in a hurry while being on vacation. Service of the waiter(s) was perfect; very enthusiastic and motivated staff. 9 out of 10 and we will be back for sure.

“This is the place in Ibiza”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

One can realize when the cook and the staff take care of what they do... and this is the case in Ca Na Sofia.

Excellent meals, fine wine list, nice location and... a little bit expensive, but quality has its price.

Ask for local dishes, forget about pizza, pasta and the typical "food for tourists" :-)

“Lovely Service, Brilliant Food”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

My husband loves fresh fish of any kind and wasn't disappointed in Cana Sofia. Sardines as a starter nearly filled the plate and all the little side dishes for picking were almost a meal in themselves. He also tried the local red sea bass which was cooked to perfection. Wine (my speciality) was very good and the service was friendly but not too much. Can't wait to go back next year.

“Tuna Loin to die for!”
Reviewed September 6, 2010

As catch of the day was so expensive, went for the Tuna Loin - middle price (not cheap) It was cooked to perfection - I thought I was eating beef fillet! Absolutley wonderful taste. Husband had the veg Paealla- quite tasty. Prices were over the top for the local catch (no idea why) but other food not so pricey. Also enjoyed a snack/lunch of garlic prawn, olives, aoli & bread- reasonable & tasty plus same gorgeous setting (including fully set table)

“terrible customer service........raw chicken.....”
Reviewed July 30, 2010

we visited the cana sofia on the last day of our holiday, it had been recommended to us so we were really looking forward to the experience. We booked the table for four at lunch time, so not to be disappointed.

On arriving, the front of house waiter was extremely rude, we asked to sit at the front of the restaurant, and he replied," well if you want to melt in the sun you sit there!"

We ordered our food and all of us ordered chicken, when the food arrived two of the chicken dishes were raw......the meat was not cooked. We did not want to eat the chicken as it is dangerous to eat raw chicken, so we sent it back......they brought back the same chicken , minutes later.

My partner asked to speak to the manager, or who ever was in charge.....we did not want our children to eat raw chicken.....the staff were very rude, shouting and most definately not understanding our problem.

After a heated discussion , we paid for our drinks and starters.

We would not revisit this restaurant and we think that they need to learn some customer service skills..

Sentimos haberle decepcionado ya que desde Cana Sofia trabajamos para dar un servicio de calidad .Esperamos que la proxima vez no pida pechuga de pollo (no esta en la carta) y deguste uno de nuestros magnificos platos de restaurante
