A small cozy bistro that focuses on burgers, ribs and sandwiches. Limited seating available, so takeout is recommended. We've recently opened a sitting area across the street so you can also eat there!

I went there with my local friend. She knows this place for some time and according to her, these are the best burgers in Bucharest. I have to agree with her, even though I haven't eaten any other burger in the city, but this one...More

I was going to take a picture of the burger but could not stop eating... I’m the type of person that is extremely picky about food. Absolutely fell in love with this restaurant after taking a bite.

You order the food where they cook it (pretty smelly inside, so better wait outside) and you can either eat it across the street in small, self service kind of place or you take it away. Very nice concept, friendly staff, however a bit overpriced...More

I really like this place, the food is soooo good but a bit too expensive (I paid like 50 ron, that is something like 10 Euro for a burger with fries and a soda ).The place it's cozy and has this hipsterish feel to it....More

The small place behind Sala Palatului used to have a cozy burger joint atmosphere and amazing burgers. With Uber Eats killing the joy of the people working there, nobody is picking up the phone and the burgers are now aseembly line type. Too bad.

Nice atmosphere and good place for hanging out with friends. But, the burger is average. I took a veggie burger and I didn’t like it too much. But the fries ar gooood

Decent but definitely had better burgers at lower cost. The bistro itself looks pretty and I love the concept and it is a cozy place, but if you are not expecting a mind-blowing burger it is a good lunch spot

I had El Guapo burger. It was ok, nothing special. Meat was overfried. The staff was not attentive and not friendly. The premises had very bad ventilation. This place is not worth going to.

Yum!! This was one of the best burgers I have found! Enjoyed it so much and the garlic dipping sauce for the fries was killer! The staff was really nice and yes the sitting area is across the street but we didn’t mind at all....More

Very tasty burgers, nice options and interesting seating. I liked how I sat across the street, felt almost like eating at home and not at a restaurant. Very comfortable. Wish we had this place in my city, I'd go all the time.
