If you're expecting a European Michelin star restaurant you may be disappointed.
That being said, this is the best meal we've had in Costa Rica!
We've tried a fair share of the so-called "gourmet" restaurants in Costa Rica, and left them very disappointed.
This was everything it needed to be.
Great food, good cocktails and perfect service!
Of course it's a bit more expensive than other restaurants in the area, but still quite cheap compared to Europe and North America.
Please go there and have a nice evening!

Thank JensWinther

We went to Sofia on a Thursdaynight expecting a lot after reading about it on TA. We didn't feel it at all. Appetizer: tortilla chips: CRAPPY! No flavor, hard, just not good. Main dish: quesadilla: ok, but what a small portion???? For 14 dollars u would expect more. I had the Shrimp with green mango: again not bad, but certainly not wow! 5 shrimps for 18 dollars! Too expensive, delucia down the street is better option!!

Great find off a side road slightly out of town, worth the visit. Setting was relaxing with soft background music. Waitress was very friendly and welcoming. Food was tasty, especially the fruity dip with our nachos to start.

We went to this restaurant because it was recommended and it was also close to our hotel. It became awkward when we were informed that credit card facilities weren't available that night so we were limited by the amount of cash we had on us. The menu wasn't as interesting as we had expected but the food was acceptable. It was a very quiet night so we felt as though we were exposed in quite a large open space despite the low level of lighting. The service was friendly but difficult to imagine what it would be like on a busy night. Expensive compared with other restaurants we tried in the area.
