The burgers are very good.. yet the service is very bad.. very rude waitress.. very unwelcome aura to the crew... very disappointing.. this is my first time here and I will not recommend this pub to my friends...
Hungry for a burger and found saxpub. Going inside. Everyone was friendly, all are smiling. They have a good choice of beer and burger. It's very small and we got a table without reservation. Everything going very fast in the beginning. From time to time...coming more people inside and from now you need more time. The burger was fantastic. New style with ciabatta bread but taste very good. The time from the last order to the check was incredible long. Waiting for nothing. I come again with more time.More
We wandered past this little pub, in the rain on a Sunday evening just after arriving in Trieste. The rain and our hunger (and distinctly rare parking around here) made us willing to forego a search for authentic Trieste Italian food in favor of what...was to be had immediately.
We were very happy we did. Being dang Americans on our first night in town, we let ourselves get quite hungry at 5:30 pm in a country where supper starts at 7:30 pm. The menu boasted its burgers and Guinness.
Again, we generally seek out local cuisine but not tonight. They opened at 6:00 PM and we were the first to arrive.
We were greeted with a lovely, attentive waitress who spoke no English (one of the nice things about Trieste - you have to work a bit!) but we soon had beer and wine and then the chef, who spoke a little English invited us to his grill to see our options in person. The hospitality was genuine and delightful; we felt VERY welcome.
What they specialize in is beef, locally raised and organic, in many forms. On offer a veal shank for two people and also a “special” of a Slovenian sausage variation that was tempting. But having just had lots of sausage in Slovenia, we opted for the “Assembly Line” burger along with a side dish of potatoes, ham and cheese that was simply to die for.
When the burger arrived (we split it) we did a double take! The presentation was big and beautiful. The burger was perfectly cooked with a touch of pink and was a normal size while toppings and the bread (two large squares of focaccia-like bread) made for a tower of a burger.
Our drinks were kept as full as we wanted and the owner came by several times to check on our satisfaction.
The decor is pub, with record albums and photos on the wall and with American Country music playing. While we aren’t really country music super fans, the ambience was perfectly enjoyable. There was a single tv screen with a soccer game (sound off) which I put behind me so as not to be distracted, but which later patrons kept an eye on while enjoying their equally impressive burger creations.
So if you feel like a bit of Pub culture while visiting Trieste, come here hungry, maybe bring an Italian translation app for the fine details and enjoy being in a pub that let’s you know that you are welcome and that your satisfaction matters. We’ll be back.More
I've been there a lot of times with my family or with my friends and at the end of the meal I was always satisfied.
Giant hamburgers with very good and fresh ingredients and very good steaks.
I super recommend the "Tomahawk" a piece of...meat with an iconic shape. The owner is very very nice, the decor is cozy and prices are unbeatable.
If you visit Trieste you have to eat here at least once.
I super recommend itMore
