This restaurant is situated in Burgos Circle. Cozy place, friendly staff, awesome food. The most budget-friendly in the area..

Must try: burrito and buffalo wings..

“Our go-to place in Burgos Circle....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

Despite the variety of good eating establishments within Burgos Circle, we still find ourselves dining (and drinking) at Bugsy's more than any other. First, the cost is "employee friendly" - we can enjoy lunch for P250 each. The food rests somewhere between good and great. I always order the buffallo tenders (cooked in olive oil) and spicy tuna pasta (with extra garlic bread). My carnivore friends, though swear by their "tapa" served with the obligatory garlic rice and egg and their famous porkchops (it comes 2 to an order!!). At night, the place becomes a bar more than a restaurant although this does not stop the patrons from ordering the specials (read: porkchops and steaks). The place has a "happy, welcoming feel" to it without the over the top dark ambience other bars try to exude. The service is no-nonesense with the service staff ever mindful of their guests' needs. Try reserving tables on the 2nd floor - it's actually just a small loft perfect for small parties (we held one here...) with a dozen small tables.

“Cozy place and decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

I have had the pleasure of dining here thrice now. The first time was a small get together with colleagues and the beer nor the food failed to impress me.

The second time did not get an impression either. If you are wondering why we went there twice if it wasn't so impressive, it's probably because we happened to be near the place at dinner time.

The third time being the charm, a friend suggested the breaded porkchop and it was an instant hit! The porkchop was crispy on the outside - juicy and medium-well on the inside. And we are not talking thin scrawny chops here. They served almost inch thick chops that seemed to measure 4x5 inches each. Will definitely come back!
