Excellent food in a very pleasant setting. The tangerine with palm hearts appetiser was delicious and the plantain crusted sea bass was really excellent. The Mojito Martini was a great way to start the meal - unique and very tasty. Service was also very friendly and efficient. Nothing could have been better. I just wish we were in Santa Elena...

We enjoyed this lovely restaurant a lot-- delicious ceviche, excellent fish, a nice chicken quesadilla with smoked cheese from the local cheese factory. Nice cocktails, lovely atmosphere. Great place to unwind after a busy day of hiking or birding.

Our family had the filet mignon and the seabass and everything was perfect. The service was above par. Nice setting for a couple, family and group of friends.

Had a wonderful meal here - started with the fried yucca stuffed with smoked cheese accompanied with tasty cabbage salad and caramelized and vinegar-infused onions. The kids ordered quesadillas with chicken and cheese and gobbled them up - and they are quesadilla connoisseurs! Adults had the Lomo de res (grilled steak). Beautiful thick cut grilled to perfection, the one with... More

We had a lovely meal here. Is a nice restaurant to sit in, staff were very friendly and efficient. Food was well cooked and tasted nice, they made lovely cocktails too. A little out of the way from the main area but is easy to get too. Definitely worth going to if you're near by.

We read mixed reviews of d'Sofia on Trip Advisor so were not sure what to expect when we got there last night. Our servers were both welcoming and efficient. We ate appies, soup and an organic salad. They came to our table quickly and were presented very well. My ceviche was excellent and my wife said her eggplant and local... More

Eight of us from our tour group dined out. Excellent suggestion by our guide! We had Sea Bass and Chili Relanos with black beans plus appetizers. Every one in our group gave thumbs up.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at d'Sofia. The atmosphere was pleasant, the staff were extremely gracious, and the food was very, very delicious. We started with the tasty sweet potato and plantain soup. I enjoyed the plantain-crusted sea bass and my husband had the tenderloin topped with chipotle butter. Our entrees were perfectly cooked. The tenderloin is a little less... More

We ate dinner and the black bean soup was great as was the tangerine and palm hearts salad. My pork loin with figs was overcooked but OK with a bit of fig, my wife's tenderloin was a bit chewy but well presented. Highly recommend Sofia's colada and the frozen mojito
