    Overall a really good experience, staff excellent, lovely surroundings and a great vibe. In terms of the food, steak was excellent, tempura on prawns not great, but the duck was not very good which was disappointing, overdone and very tough, ate approx 1/4 , staff didn't enquire as to why it wasn't eaten, didn't complain as the overall experience was still lovely. Cocktails were amazing.

    First time dining here for a birthday celebration. Great food & super service! Will definitely be going back. One thing I would point out is to pay attention to notes on the booking . It would haze been a nice touch just to wish my guests a happy birthday and to ask about dietary requirement, both of which were noted. These are the little things that would make it even better

    95.80 for a steak that would knock someone’s teeth out and a miserable beef dinner with a side of fries and TWO drinks, will not be returning not even for a free meal and we were given sparkling water when no one in the country with any bit of sanity would drink that stuff, cheers but 95 euro worth of McDonald’s would have hit the spot better.

    Food was so disappointing. Steak was tiny and undercooked. Hard to find monkfish is another dish order. Overall we all agreed just so bland and unexciting. Disappointed as we had heard such good things. Service was good and staff very nice and helpful.

    Really good starter course - but the main course duck was close to inedible (tough and too think and no taste). Service was good and very friendly, but the food standard was poor and does not compete with similarly priced venues.

    The venue, staff, food and service was 100% but Sophie’s is meant to be know for it roof top dining with a view and there was little or none of that due to the ugly construction of commercial building being built and blocking the rive almost entirely. We along with the rest of the outdoor tables we’re looking out into a building site!

    Amazing views. Menu was fine, just bit basic in terms of what element could have been fused to make the food more unique for such a wonderful setting and aesthetic. Staff where helpful and friendly. Ambiance was a little bit hinders with a party of 8 woman who where extremely loud cackling laughter but that's life! Great for Instagram poster and social media vloggers!

    We dined at Sophie’s restaurant on the 01 Aug 2022. The start of our experience at Sophie’s restaurant did not get off to a good one, due to seating allocation and the rudeness and unprofessional attitude of the hostess who showed us to our seats. We were seated next to the bar where all the staff were congregated and we did not feel comfortable with the table, considering that the restaurant had many free tables. We were told they were all booked and the hostess left to find us another table and left us standing in the middle of the restaurant. She did move us to another table , again next to a service station and this time did not give us an opportunity to comment, she just muttered under her breath and left. I was very disappointed in her attitude but was not going to let one individual spoil my evening. This attitude was experienced by other diners in the restaurant as people around us were also not happy. (When we finished our meal, all these booked tables that we could not be moved to, remained empty!) The food itself was very good and the table servers were very pleasant and professional. Overall a nice meal and enjoyed the food. First impressions last however, and the hostess who greeted us upon arrival was unprofessional and rude which would make me think twice about returning.

    Service was terrible and extremely slow. Forgot to provide water, cutlery, provided incorrect menu and requested straws (for cocktails) and never received. No please or thank you by waitress or staff for the duration of the stay. We had requested seating by glass balcony and was seated in between two tables and pushed to the corner while the requested seats was available

    The fish was tasteless and chips were very dark and didn’t look very appetising. The dessert was lovely but coffee wasn’t very hot having requested extra hot. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the restaurant itself was very nice but the menu was not what I expected. We booked for Sunday lunch but it was actually brunch which was disappointing. The pleasant staff made up for a lot!
