    Music was blaring and had to ask to turn it down twice (it was turned down the first time, but turned back up again). Our starters were forgotten about so our mains were brought to the table first. We said we were waiting for starters so the staff apologised and went to get them.... but this ment we were waiting about 30 mins from when we ordered to when we got food. We were STARVING. Otherwise staff and food were gorgeous and I would still recommend to a friend 😊

    Went for brunch in Sophie’s with my wife and it did not disappoint. The decor and ambience were superb and views of the city amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and tentative and all backed up by delicious and extremely well valued food. due to supply issues one of our dishes was missing an ingredient and we were notified immediately and unexpectedly that dish was comped on the bill which was unnecessary as the food was amazing but very much appreciated. Will 100% be returning and would highly recommend Sophie’s restaurant.

    Beautiful Restaurant! FANTASTIC food Lovely staff. Not a wide variety menu wise but our food was delicious. The cocktails were fab! but for 13 euro each and coming in a extra small wine glass was a bit extortionate. Deserts were to die for. Great to visit sophies Restaurant but it wouldn't be a place you would go back to every week. Fantastic view, Great vibes.
