Happy Bar & Grill St. Nedelya Jul 13, 2017
Happy Bar & Grill is a chain of restaurants which can be found in every larger Bulgarian city. One of their flagship locations is located in front of the Sveta Nedelya Church in central Sofia. This is the second-oldest “Happy” and formerly known under the name “Happy Rubin”.

Happy serves international dishes such as pasta, meat dishes such as schnitzel and steak – but also unexpected like sushi or calamari platter. I picked a mushroom sauce schnitzel which was on offer. It could easily have passed a test in Germany. Don't expect anything posh however, it goes more along the “cheap and cheerful” line.

It's one of the places which want to be everything for everyone. Although it lacks an individual character, it is a solution everyone in a group can agree on. Food is OK and prices are slightly below average – so it's even affordable for Bulgarian standard. Think of a Wetherspoon pub with a focus on meat dishes.

It makes me HAPPY! Sep 29, 2010
We landed in Sofia in the evening and had to look for the hotel we had booked. After that, we walked around and couldn't find any eateries so we popped by into a hotel and asked. They recommended HAPPY restaurant which was nearby and they served good food.

OK...so they gave us the direction and we managed to find it. HAPPY BAR & GRILL Rubin - you'll not miss it when you see that HUMONGOUS red sign of 'HAPPY'. It is located opposite of Sheraton Hotel and it is just outside the road junction and pedestrian crossing.

Hunger growing within us, we could eat a lot so we ordered...

- Nizza Salad (tuna, smoked salmon, lettuce, unpitted black olives, egg, tomato, cheddar cheese and zesty mayonnaise dressing) -> 5.99BGN

- Some Chicken Dish on a hot plate -> 8.69BGN

- Chicken & Mushroom Spaghetti -> 6.99BGN

- Kamenitza (Bulgarian beer) -> 2.29BGN

- Cappy Peach juice -> 2.39BGN

Nizza salad was nice and I was really pleased with the Chicken & Mushroom Spaghetti. It had the Asian touch and flavours to it and like what it was stated in the menu; mushroom flavour in the that dish. Pretty much, we were very happy with what we'd ordered and the prices were a good deal.

There was free-opened WiFi for the customers to happily surf the Net.

We would like to dine there again at HAPPY BAR & GRILL Rubin. I strongly recommend this place for any tourist on a budget (who would like to experience dining in a restaurant too). By the way, did I mention that it somehow reminds me of Hooters bar?

Girls...Waitresses, in tight tops and short-tight red skirts. Yup. Oh and they do smile and service is good because we didn't ask for a spoon but she automatically presented a spoon for us. How nice is that? NICE OF COURSE! Hehehehe...

Oh well...go there and enjoy every bit of HAPPY BAR & GRIL Rubin.

PS: The reason why I placed it as 'cheap' instead of 'average' because I find it worth as the place doesn't wreak of cigarette. Yes, I'm biased base on that whether my money is worth for it. Simple form, I make my moneys worth.
Cappy Peach.
