Nice place, with good food and nice service. Unfortunately not too busy. The wine list is short but good.

Clearly the best restaurant we ate at in Costa Rica. Every course was amazing. Appetizers entrées and we did not have room for dessert. Quite reasonable. Dinner for four with liquor was only $121.

We give the Sofia restaurant 10/10. They are a step above all the other restaurants in town. Excellent food, superb service, attentive to food allergies, and great ambiance.

We walked to the restaurant from our lodge. Everything was delicious. Was a nice treat after a long day of activities. I recommend this restaurant for families as well as couples dining alone.

After a long day and a night tour, we stumbled onto Sofia. Beautiful restaurant with nice service. Chips were great and dinner was quick and beautifully plated. Well worth the walk from our hotel

We went to dinner on a night where they had a large party and they were understaffed. They did the best they could with us, but it wasn't ideal. The food was good, but not great. Drinks were very good.

We visited during a quiet time so the restaurant lacked atmosphere and the decor is a bit strange but we wanted to try the food after reading good things. On arrival there was a friendly welcome and we were given menus and offered drinks promptly....More

Ate dinner here based on a recommendation. Ginger mint mojito and sweet potatoe soup were good but our mains - sea bass and pork with figs were disappointing. Atmosphere was lacking and service mediocre.
