“Delicate fish, inspired meat dish”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Sophia's was so good. The Cornish fish trio was moist, delicate, and so fresh that it melted in my mouth. My husband had the feta-infused, Greece-inspired meatball dish and it sent him over the moon. We continued our travels and he was still talking about those meatballs at our next destination.

“Excellent set menu”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

Arrived ten minutes late for set menu restricted time but was still allowed the option to have it. Both my wifes beef and my chicken were cooked to perfection. We started with prawn coctails and finished with sticky toffee pudding, all this for £18, cant be bad.
All this and the owner was so very friendly, it was their last night open this season so couldnt return the following night !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Fine Dining at its best!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Having booked a few days in Penzance for a long awaited break, my husband & I were really looking forward to dining at Sophia's restaurant again. Our visits there did not disappoint. In our opinion the food is exquisite and represents fine dining at its best! The home-made apricot bread is 'out of this world', the crab risotto and trio of potted shrimps etc are unbeatable and the 'fish & chips' with the home-made tartare sauce has to be tasted to be believed.
We have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and the owner/chef has always had time for a few words with us which gives the visit that extra personal touch.
We have probably visited this restaurant around a dozen times in the last three years (we wish we had discovered this restaurant much earlier) and intent to keep on coming back.
Thank you so much for helping to make our holiday complete!
