I kind of expected more from this place, as it was heavily advertised for its burgers. However the burgers really tasted a lot like Burger King or any similiar fast food restaurant, so they are not impressive at all.

I hope you will give us another visit in the future. We are constantly updating our menu and we are trying hard to make the best burger in Bulgaria!

this burger IS THE BEST IN SOFIA.
But still...I cant compare it to a Real American Hamburger...When I say real american...Im not talking about mcdonalds crap...
I mean Backyard style or $15 angus Burger from a nice restaurant with a reputable chef.

Inside it looks like a Diner. They do use Irish Beef...though it is a little on the greasy side.

The food was very good but a bit expensive.We ordered a ceasar's salad but,first of all, it was with anchovies and second,didnt seem very fresh.The burgers were very good but a bit small portions.The place was clean and really nice decorated and the stuff was fast and polite.

Although we do mention the anchovies on the menu, we will start asking customers whether they would like anchovies or not in the future... we know they divide opinion! I hope we can make your next trip more pleasurable!

A super find in Sofia. Having lived here in Bulgaria for 3 years and eaten in many restaurants I can say that this is a great place for all. Not perfect for a romantic dinner for two as the lighting is bright and overall setting is fairly basic. Having said that surroundings are pleasant and clean. The service is excellent. Food is served in reasonable time. Chip portions were small but adequate and triple fried, very nice. Onion rings also very good. Burgers were superb as were chicken burgers. Location central Sofia, just off Vitosha Boulevard. Compared with restaurant prices in central Sofia, very reasonable. The meat used for the burgers is Angus Irish beef and the result is amazing. Certainly a hard to beat taste here in Bulgaria. English well spoken. Overall, I would highly recommend.

Thanks very much for the lovely review. We completely agree about lack of romantic atmosphere in the evenings! Dimmers on the lights and candlelight is coming soon!
