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

We recently completed a trip to Costa Rica with my 80 year old parents and our 11 year old twins. Dinner at d'Sophia was one of the highlights. They were very accommodating, and had an excellent selection of gluten free options for our son with celiac I would highly recommend dinner here.

I have no general complaint about this restaurant. The service was fine, the food was fine, the ambiance was fine, though be it a little dark. All in all - it was fine.

We ventured out of our hotel ( El Establo) in the pouring rain and fell into d'sofia by chance. What a lucky find, amazing food, wonderful flavours. Excellent attentive service and amazing cocktails. Reasonable prices for the calibre of food served, a must eat place if you are in St Elena.

We found this restaurant on our last night in Monte Verde and what a treasure it turned out to be. The restaurant is beautiful, rustic and charming. Service was absolutely spot on, they are obviously very proud of the restaurant. We had wonderful cocktails and milkshakes to start and every dish was exquisite. Prices were reasonable given the quality of... More
