Everything was excellent until a very noisy group of adults sat at the table next to us which sadly stopped us from staying for coffee and liqueurs as we couldn't hear ourselves think let alone continue our conversation.

We had the Mezze Platter that was amazing and very good value. Couldn’t fault the food or the staff and service but the noise level from a large group of mainly men seated beside us was intolerable and the profanities were even worse. This unfortunately marred the experience and ruined what should have been a nice relaxing Birthday Meal we were treating a friend to. Obviously this isn’t the restaurants fault and some people just don’t know how to adjust to their environment, Sotiros is not a place for loud shouting and bad language. Would definitely visit again but would maybe ask if any large groups were also booked in, the restaurant is small and intimate so the noise is difficult to ignore and makes having normal conversation with your dining companions extremely difficult.

Once again Costa and the team made us most welcome and the food was excellent.
Probably one of the best place to dine Folkestone at the moment.

Exceptionally good and friendly service. Slightly too quick , we were asked four times for our dessert order ! We wanted to slow it all down and not be out in an hour and a half. Food was homely and tasty, vegetables were over cooked. We would definitely give it another go tho.

Spectacular service and food was nice.
Fell a bit short of my expectations considering trip advisor reviews, Pastitsio was swimming in oil but tasted good,wine was excellent. Overall a nice night but food could be a little better to equal the service. I would return but would not have the same meal.

I came with my work colleagues a couple of months ago and was so impressed I booked my family for Sunday lunch and I wasn’t disappointed, the food was gorgeous and the staff couldn’t have done more and so friendly and welcoming. I will be coming again very soon. Thank you 🙏

Been eating at various locations for Sotirios for as long as it's been open, Costas' sons were hosts on our latest visit and they were as attentive and delightful as their father always is. Food is still fantastic, would highly recommend.

We've dined a number of times at Sotirios and have never left disappointed.
From the moment you walk in until the moment of leaving you are made to feel special.
It is in our opinion a restaurant that sits head and shoulders above others

A wonderful evening to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. Outstanding service and the food was amazing, as ever. Menu is extensive to a particularly high standard. A huge selection of good wines and cocktails too. Sotirio's is by far the best restaurant in Kent and an institution that always performs. Would highly recommend to all.

We had a Sunday Roast for a family of 4 and it was really enjoyable with crunchy roast potatoes and plenty of gravy, unfortunately too full for dessert.

The service of the staff is what makes this restaurant a step above others.

My only issue was the noise next time we would request a table away from large groups.

Definitely worth a recommendation

We had a fantastic meal bring our cousins to enjoy our anniversary dinner
The friendly attention we was given by all the staff was nothing short of incredible- I used to run restaurants and have not seen the standing of waiting tables like this for more years than I care to mention know when to approach a table and how I can’t tank each and everyone for the care and detail you all deliver. Now the food - an incredible meal fit for kings, have a À la cart restaurant on our doorstep that produces 5 star dishes means we can have faith again in dining regularly in our home town. Everyone in our party had enough to eat the portions were spot on - visually pleasing and the taste breathless thank you one and all.

Fantastic friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you and always smiling. Nice venue but very noisy so difficult to hear each other talk which was annoying. We arrived early for our table booking hoping to enjoy a cocktail before eating but we got seated straight away and despite me telling the staff that we wanted to enjoy our drink first they still brought the food out pretty much as the cocktails were being served which was frustrating to say the least.

We had booked to have the Friday Mezze which I was really looking forward to but it was very disappointing in the most part. The best bit for me was the baklava at the end. The starters were ok, bit weird to have prawn marie rose in the mix, but fair enough. The mains were in the most part boring and tasteless, particularly the stuffed tomatoes. As for the vegetarian moussaka - very sloppy. And what was with the roast potatoes. Patatas Bravas maybe, but not plain roasties!

I also thought the mezze was quite expensive.

Needless to say I won't be returning.
