Sophia is a place with real ambition. The same team already has a Michelin starred restaurant under their belt and Sophia is stretching in that direction. The place attracts Amsterdam’s smart set, the fashionable crowd, and has rapidly established itself as a place to see and be seen. The room is elegant with lost of dark wood and darker leather, and ornate yet not old fashioned chandeliers. The buzz surrounding the place is such that the food can sometimes be overlooked, which is a shame as it’s superb, with the emphasis on sharing plates, and they also have a pleasingly extensive wine-list. We are also smitten with the lovely bar area where you can partake of a pre-dinner cocktail while reclining on a butter-soft leather sofa.
