The worst service ever. The meal was not freshly made. The elderly woman (probably the owner) was a very unpleasant person. The man (probably the husband) had unwashed and dirty nails.

When staying in Tilos we have eaten out in various restaurants, most of them good, but Sophias has become our favorite because of the personal approach and hospitality. The owners and the cook were kind especially for the great number of cats running around well fed. The food was traditional Greek but every night the has some great specials outside... More

A truly tranquil place to stop with magnificent views, fantastic food,at very reasonable prices, and wonderful service. We spent an hour or so staring out at the sea, waiting for the bus to Eristos and it was just wonderful.

Sophia's Restaurant on the seafront in Livadia is named after the mother (now sadly departed) of the current owner. He and his sister and brother run the restaurant in the old traditional style which is sadly disappearing in Greece.

We have eaten here on every visit to Tilos, it never disappointed, lovley home cooked Greek food. The owners are friendly and very helpful. One of our top 3 places to eat in Tilos. In peak season booking a table is advisable as it is small but perfectly formed 😀

Sophias is a very nice family restaurant by the sea in Livadia bay. It has the best atmosphere of all the restaurants in Livadia - thanks to Vassili and his sister. Average food - but anyway - the view and the atmosphere makes Sophias one of our first choices every time we visit Tilos.

We came to Tilos on 16 September & decided to have lunch here based on the reviews.Very disappointed as the food was about average. I suppose they keep the name Sophia to fool people into thinking they will get good home cooked food.Sophia died some years ago but her sons carry on the taverna. My lunch was spoiled by one...
