La Sophia is one of London's best kept gastronomic secrets. We combine French Mediterranean cuisine with unique Palestinian ingredients, served up in a popular Notting Hill location. Boasting an entirely Halal menu, our restaurant is an oasis of calm, nestling in the bustle of the Golborne Rd, a mere stones throw from Portobello Road.
Our offering is simple - the highest quality French cuisine, a Halal menu, a welcoming rustic vibe, at a reasonable price. Because of this, we've become the go-to destination for foodies seeking a good value fine dining experience.
Our dishes are prepared using the highest quality ingredients - the best cuts of meat and unique combinations of ingredients, such as marinated rump of lamb with pearl barley, fresh herb salad, Ras el hanout and yogurt tahini sauce. Alongside classic French dishes like Confit de Canard, Tournedos Rossini and Escargots de Bourgogne, you'll find Chef's specials such as lobster and langoustine cannelloni, with roasted garlic puree and lobster sauce
Our private dining room is available for hire and is perfect for a fuss-free gathering. It is a favourite with politicians, fashion and media professionals and even royalty because of the guarantee of great food and a refreshingly low-key atmosphere.
Our BYO option (available every night with no corkage Sunday to Friday) is extremely popular within the Notting Hill community, as is the live jazz music that frequently heralds the start of the weekend on Friday nights.
