We had one of a kind experience at Sofia Mediterraneo. Mr. Mehmet, the owner is a real gem to talk to about food & the philosophy of eating. Their food is to die for. Lamb dish is an epic. Variety of mouth watering mazes & I had a best kefta in my life there. Service is impeccable and the staff are knowledgeable and pleasant. This Amazing family owned restaurant is at a beautiful neighborhood name Barrio Escalante, in SanJosé CostaRica.
You should try this place If you’re in San Jose.
It’s better to get reservation on the weekends.

Cozy ambiance, excellent service, great food! Try grilled octopus, lamb chops and stew, green peppercorn steak! Fresh fish and veggie dishes are great too! Tip: Start with the Sofia assorted platter while ordering!

This was our final dinner in Costa Rica. We went to the Gastronomica area by Uber and this was the first stop. Never got further. They have something for all. If you like Mediterranean food you will love this place. The owner is Turkish and the fish and lamb dishes were exquisite, The wine selection was wonderful and our waiter Allen was extremely attentive. Very authentic dishes and the tastes were delicious !

The place is nice and cozy, the service is outstanding and one of the waiters is a truly polyglot which makes the experience richer, they have a large menu with mediterranean and turkish dishes.
Any way your try their lamb, is a win, you won't get disappointed.
The "plato ejecutivo" or dish of the day is an excellent lunch option that for less than $10 includes a soup, a main dish, a beverage and a dessert.
On Friday's nights they often have life music
They create special seasonal menus such as Eastern and Valentine's Day.

One of the best places to eat in Escalante by far!
