I have never given a review of a takeaway but then until the covid 19 restrictions top restaurants have not offered this service. My family have been customers for many years and the in house dining is always exceptional with a fabulous and innovative menu....The tasty food is always fantastic so we decided to give the takeaway menu a try. The Friday fish and chips is an absolute must have experience and we ate every morsel. Next we tried the Thai tasting menu that was again a wonderful dining experience even though we missed the ambience of the retaurant itself. We cannot wait for the restaurant to open again but meanwhile will satiate our appetites with their sensational food.More

The restaurant has well-spaced tables. Guests entering the restaurant wore face masks until they were seated. During the pandemic the air conditioned was off. Large windows have been opened to allow the flow or fresh air, and a amiable temperature. We started with two cocktails:...a Manhattan and a mojito. We ordered a selection of first dishes: a double serving (just +3) of succulent oriental chicken wings with Morroccan spices, humus with red pepper, "coca de tomate", and an eggplant Tagine. The attention to details and the staff were second to none. We had our dessert -a vanilla icecream with crumbs of applepie and rhubarb sauce- in one of the small tables outside the entrance of the restaurant. The dinner ended with two "cortado" expressos, gentle but rich in flavour. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosmopolitan. A tasteful selection of background music soothed all problems away. The value is excellent: we only ordered a selection of starters for sharing, and not main courses, but I was nonetheless, startled to see that the bill was only €49. All in all, a sensational experience with mouth-watering flavours, American style cocktails, and charming service that well deserves a rating of excellence.More

I took my Mum here last Month (February) for her birthday. I hadn't mentioned that it was her birthday as she is rather shy. I was just speaking to one of the girls serving and mentioned quietly that it was my Mum's birthday. When it...was time for the dessert, they came out with a little cake and quietly sang Happy Birthday to my mum. This is the level of care they show towards their customers. The food here is always excellent and the specials and menus change frequently. The food caters for all tastes and from all around the world. It is very reasonably priced. The restaurant has an intimate feel to it and apart from the quality of the food, it is like you are eating in somebody's house. I couldn't recommend this place more. The atmosphere, food and presentation of the food is second to none. Will be back next month!More

After hearing so many good reports about Sofia’s Restaurant we finally decided to try it out. We had the (7 course) Christmas taster menu & we’re so glad that we did.

Went with our tennis club for lunch. The service and food were excellent. Not easy to find but well worth the effort. Fully recommended.

No dress code- we were smart casual but there was a wide mix of attire, age dependent.
