I've never eaten such a delicious lamb meat in a kleftiko! Kalamari - except frozen, also very good. Very friendly staff, know some of every language ;)

Great food and service. The menu has a large selection available. Nice location overlooking the beach. This is really greek style, so be prepared for your main course arriving before you have finished your starter. This is another taverna we visited again during our hols.

Before this visit we ate here in 2013. Everything was just about OK. What a difference now. New build, efficient and personable waiters. The food was superb. We had pork shank (huge portion), little fish and "Beautiful Helens Salad". The salad was excellent. Well done Sofia's, we'll be back.

My girlfriend and I went there for lunch and we were impressed by the quality if the food. Very good recommendations and the seafood was really fresh, probably catch of the day. Everyone was really friendly and having lunch listening to the waves by the beach is just amazing.

In the past few weeks I had dinner several times at the Sofia. The food is exceptionally good and fresh. The kitchen is creative and I rediscovered Greek flavours here. I love the dish Feta Rethimno, which is baked feta cheese with honey and sesame. What I like about this restaurant so much is that you discover typical Greek flavours... More
