The food is a little different to most restaurants in the area. Very good food and service. All in all an excellent night out at a good price.

Been to this resturaunt a few times now and the food is brilliant. You do have to book in advance as it's busy. Service is fantastic as well. Give it a go really worth a visit. Prices are excellent as well.

Went for Thursday lunch special and was not disappointed. All freshly cooked, beautifully presented and service was excellent. Lovely glass of wine to add to the experience. Can recommend wholeheartedly as we have never been disappointed.

This is a lovely friendly restaurant. My husband and I have been here a couple of times and the last time we took family with kids. There was a kids menu with a good choice. Staff very pleasant. The service the last time was slow but the restaurant was busy.

Our annual holiday to Denia wouldn't be complete without a visit to Sofia's Restaurant, well 2 visits in fact. So many places can disappoint on return visits as sometimes it's the service that has gone down or the food quality has deteriorated, well let me tell you, neither have, infact I would say it had got better, loved it again...

This was our second visit here and again one of the best restaurants in the javea area. Drew, owner/cook would be out of place in the West end London everything that you ordered was of the very highest quality including the house wine. Service was very good, nothing was to much trouble everyone involved gave us an evening to remember,... More

I can see why this restaurant would appeal to some, not to me though. The food was well presented and tasted nice but the service was not good at all, whilst edible the food quality was not great and the whole experience was poor. Overpriced (compared to similar establishments) to start with, there are surcharges for anything actually on the... More
