A lot of hype, probably because it is the only restaurant of its kind in the area. Food is OK. Also, a bit overpriced!

Sophie's Bistro is a fun eating establishment. Very upbeat! Food is excellent too. We shared the 12 escargot. Very good but must admit I've had better. The Coquilles St Jacque, special Barramundi, creme brûlée, and crepe cake all excellent.

We arrived early on a Saturday night with a reservation. The restaurant soon became crowded with every table occupied. The food was excellent as well as the service. The French Onion soup was the best I ever had. We will return again.
