We visited with my fiance the certain restaurant, for my first try, since I had heard very good critics about it. The environment was very nice. The place is separated to smoking and non smoking.

This is one of my most favourite Bulgarian chain of restaurants. And this one especially has good location and you could always find place in it, even if you have to wait a little. Good food. Charming staff. Everything is worth it.

Love this chain. Never been disappointed. Food and service is excellent while prices are still very competitive. I wish we could find more of these restaurants either in Bulgaria or overseas. Go there !

This restaurant, at which you can happily sit and enjoy drinks without eating, is happily decorated with rock memorabilia. It is popular with customers of all ages and has a large smoking section separate from the main one, which appears warm, being enclosed in glass rather than the usual Sofia flimsy plastic. Inside, there is a wide menu, including lots... More

During our four day stay in Sofia we visited Happy three times, simply because there was a large variety of dishes to choose from, but also because the main courses and desserts that we had were all excellent. We recommend their fish dishes and the creme caramel. There are always a lot of guests at Happy, but the service is... More

The first restaurant that opened its doors in our capital was Happy Budapest. The restaurant operates from 28th May 2000, and has since pleased its clients with unique Happy specialties, among which authentic Japanese sushi, prepared by our sushi chef. In Happy Budapest you can enjoy the dancing waitresses, serving 220 tables inside and in summer another 60 tables in the garden of the restaurant. Opening hours: every day from 12:00 to 23:00
