The maitre d Serge was exceptional as were his waiting staff. He took the time to explain the menu choice and you could tell he was proud of his restaurant. My wife and I both chose the vegetarian menu and at Serge's recommendation we had...More

Restaurant is very nice inside, service excellent. Food is very good. Order from the menue, other choise is ridiculosly expensive. Capesante shell fish was mediocre, scampi great, fish nice. A glass of bubbly, half bottle of young wine, 120eur per capita was quite expensive but...More

Our experience was average. Could be due to the fact that we had a set menu, available just for a short period of time, but the food just had flaws that we didn't expect (dry and sweet scallop au gratin, pasta just 30 seconds short...More

We had the half board menu at 39 Euros each which was OK but I think the a la carte would have been great but two or three times more in cost

Located inside the best hotel in Slovenia, the Kempinski in Portoroz, Sophia is an upscale restaurant offering great international cuisine, and local as well. Service is impeccable, the only disappointment was the main course - octopus was way too chewy. Everything else was super.

The food and service are excellent; the portions are small; the prices are high. We enjoyed the freshness of the ingredients, but thought 4 prawns on a dish that was 30+ euros was a bit high priced.

Great seafood dishes. The seafood pasta dish with octopus was truly great. Great wine and mixed drinks. Terrace was very nice, view of pool and ocean. Service staff was nice. A bit pricy for the area, but worth it.

We celebrated our anniversary there in September. The restaurant is stunning, very beautiful decor. We opted for the Menu degustation at 44,50 euros. The food was good and very well presented but we didn't find that our meal lived up to the price. The fish...More

A double miracle – the miraculous beauty of Sophia Loren who stayed at the Palace will always be remembered as a moment of la dolce vita.

There are certain moments in social history that will never be forgotten – in the 1950s, a black and white photograph of an Italian film star dressed in a low-cut Dior evening gown, seated at an elegant dinner table; one hand holding a champagne flute, and the other lightly touching a diamond drop earring…

The food is Mediterranean, with an Italian influence. At the Restaurant Sophia, our guests know quite a bit about glamour and the meaning of good food; it’s a part of their lives. It’s a part of our history. It’s unforgettable.
