The diffrent flavours the chef puts into each meal is amazing. Salads can be quite bland but not here,Thi mussles, chicken skewers, all fantastic. My wife and i... More

What a fantastic restaurant, my husband and I with our friends come every week to this lovely hidden gem in between the Port and the old town of Javea. Great menu del dia with wine, different imaginative suggestions every time we visit to Thai mussels, Homemade soups, Thai marinated chicken skewers just to start and great vegetarian options and the...

The air was chill in the restaurant as was the welcome from staff, our booking was slightly early for Spain around 1:30 but did not warrant the dismissive reception. The menu del dia was uninteresting, if not uninspired two of the starter where cod & chicken, two of the main courses where cod & chicken. Poor choices, budget ingredients and... More

Have visited this restaurant twice before for evening meals and always had an excellent meal and a lovely evening. This time we heard about their 3 course lunchtime menu for 15.75 euros! There was a good choice for each course and the food was as good as ever and portion size was same as in the evenings. A glass of... More

Sofia's continues to impress as their professional team keep your night running like clockwork and the tasty food is simply wonderful. I was lucky enough to attend a party here over the stormy weekend and you couldn't tell what was happening outside; it was so cozy and comfortable. There wasn't a huge amount of vegetarian options however the cauliflower soup... More

Laura, Drew & Amir made our 25th wedding anniversary celebration truly wonderful. The welcome to all 18 of our party was amazing. We had pre chosen our starters & mains to help with the preparations but keeping all glasses full and 18 extremely happy guests on a busy Saturday night with other diners in the restaurant, was no mean feat....

Started off with a delicious mojito whilst my parents had sofias signature gin and tonic. Then had the mussels. They were absolutely delicious. Then I had the steak and chips. Cooked to order and very tasty. Service was very good and very friendly. Restaurant is small but absolutely beautiful.

The menu is always imaginative, and Drew always presents great food. We have never had a bad meal here, and enjoy every occasion when we are able to visit. Laura his wife is welcoming and friendly, and a perfect host. The humus is home made and very special, and like much on the menu is influenced by Moroccan cuisine. My... More

Overall a good experience, although the menu was reduced due to our group booking. My wife was happy with her 3 course, consisting of very tasty Mussels, a Thai Curry followed by a Honeycomb Sunday. My 3 course was not as favourable, tasty Kebab Starter, Hungarian Beef Goulash which could have passed as a beef hotpot followed by a superb... More
