“Small restaurant. Tasty Burgers.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

El Filete Ruso is across the road from Room Mate Emma hotel. We didn't book and the restaurant was fairly busy so were given the option of waiting for a table or eating at the bar. We opted for the bar as we were hungry but this was slightly uncomfortable sitting on bar stools. Our order was taken promptly and food served fairly quickly. I had a veggie burger. I think there was only one option for vegetarians but this was tasty. My partner had a veal burger. Most of the meat burgers were veal which i didn't like the idea of. The burgers were served in good quality bread with fresh salad leaves and sauces. Not the cheapest place to eat burgers but certainly no greasy spoon.

“Cool Place, Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

I was taken here by a Barcelona fashionista in his 40s. He told me he eats here every night. Which, if you think about it isn't a great foody recommendation. The place looks nice, very now. The kind of posh burger joint popping up on every corner in London. And it was full, very full, of 30- 40 something corporate fashionistas. I liked that - it suits my age. But, the company and ambience aside the burgers were frankly very average and the service a touch relying on the popularity of the place to do the work.

“Cool signature eco-burger place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Great place to have a signature burger. All meat used by them is eco, making the burgers very tasty. They also offer a wide selection of gin tonics, so you can get everything needed to start a good night :)

“Good for a inexpensive meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We sat inside and service was correct. I had a steak tartare and the quality wasn´t great. Correct for the price.

“Great Burgers and Cold Draft Beer in Trendy Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

This place is cool. Excellent burgers in a very cool setting. They seem to be devoted to organic beef, and great ingredients. I would go back again.
