“Great restaurant”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here with friends on the recommendation of our hotel. It took a bit of finding but well worth the effort. The menu was extensive and we all enjoyed our selections. The pork tenderloin was delicious and the presentation excellent.

“Wonderful Restaurant You Don't Want to Miss”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We had eaten the night before at the Treehouse. So so. Then some friends mentioned they had gone to Sofia in Santa Elena. It's off a side road so you need to look for it; but Santa Elena is a small town. The food was fantastic. They have a chile relleno that is unlike those in the Southwest United States. It's a stuffed red pepper with some incredible ingredients. And the desserts! You want to try each and every one of them. Luckily there were six in our party and got to taste a little of each. Also, service was Excellent! Our waiter was an extremely nice young man (I think his name was Alexis). The interior of the restaurant is very pleasant and airy. And if you eat there a second time, they take 10 percent off your bill if you bring in your receipt. It was not at all crowded. Can only say good things about this restaurant. So if you are visiting the Monteverde Cloud Forest, do make a point to eat at Sofia.

Classy place, fine service, unforgettable dishes. All four of us enjoyed the meal, the setting and the server. Would recommend this for a big night out.

“Amazing food.. And good ambience ”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

We went there for lunch. We were the only customers in the restaurant. Their ambience is pretty good. Food was amazing. The ceviche was out of the world. Their quesadilla was better than any quesadilla we had so far. The staff was very nice and helpful. Definitely worth visiting. I doubt if you will ever have a bad experience here.

“The best restaurant in Santa Elena”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

We loved everything that we tried. It was not at all comida typica, although the ingredients are the same. We had three courses and were stuffed. The service was very friendly and the ambiance was relaxed and comfortable. We would have eaten there again if we had had another night in Monteverde.
