Service was great and food fantastic. The beef special was amazing, foodies will be happy. Great with my son (5) who dozed off, getting him another chair and blankets to sleep on. Highly recommended and will go out of my way to visit again!

Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Have eaten at the restaurant 2 times during my stay and both were excellent. The Lamb chops were sublime. The desserts are excellent.

Super friendly, good service, food was lovely, nice location. Only detractor for us was the very small portions of meat/fish in our dishes.

We’ve visited this place with 14 friends in august of 2022. The service was excellent and even with a large group everything came at the same time. Every single one of my friends was extremely positive about his food! With their own wine cellar they...could offer a lot of wine to pair with every dish. The service is very friendly and quick. A special shoutout to Christof and his delicious shots, with my favorite: euforia. We will be back when we’re on Crete!More

The Mousaka and the souvlaki are really great recommendations! In my opinion Sofas represents the Greece kitchen at his finest! The Beef tartaar as a starter is one of the best choices!

The old town square of Hersonissos is beautiful and all of the restaurants there have a great view. Very pretty and traditionally Greek. At this restaurant the food was great, very tasty. But… the service needs sorting. Our waitress was grumpy and very inattentive. On...just our first conversation she only asked 3 of our 4 what they wanted to drink then went to walk off. We were later left without drinks, needed to remind them that we’d ordered drinks and had to ask 3 times to pay etc. Bit underwhelming reallyMore
