Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The burgers are weird, they are juicy, but not what I as a meat lover am looking for from a burger. Atmosphere is nice and clean. Best burgers in town are from Pancho Villa in my opinion.

Went here on my son's birthday. Very juicy burgers. My 9 year old son rated it 10 out of 10. Good quality and friendly service.

I really love their burgers because they are so different from typical burgers, they make their burger buns to burger patties themselves and i guess that's what makes their burgers so special. The bun is so soft and is coated with a film of butter...and it tastes heavenly, along with their hand make burger patties, which is amazingly fresh. The burger meal (along with drink and fries) is a good combination to order. The restaurant occupies a small place in espen shopping mall and is mostly crowded around lunch and dinner times. If you're lucky to visit in less crowded times, the take the table near the glass windows, it can offer good view of city centre along with the best burger meal.More

Friends and brgrs is usually my go to place when it comes to burgers, ever since they opened in Jakobstad. Now Vaasa is our hometown so we go here to F&B fpr burgers. Now they just released their chicken bites with a commericql that they...tried it 100 times over a year to make them perfect BUT our 16 chicken bites where dry, tough and a bit burnt. When i adresses this to F&B on their Facebool messenger they said that they knew about the problem and it was caused by frying the chicken for to long (well duh!) and they thanked for the fedback....but they did not offer any compensation for a problem that they knew of themselves. Now that is real bad customer service and shows that maybe the customers are not that important.More

Friends & brgrs really changed the burger market with fresh and local produce. This is one of my favorite burger places in Finland.

OK burgers, but the service is not tip top. The premises are somewhat greasy, and it seems that the personnel do not like to clean up after the customers

These burgers are the best you can find in Vaasa. The meal might look small first when you bring it to the table, but it just enough once you finish it since you don't feel too full. Also you can add how many patties you...want into your burger if you think it wont be enough. They mince the beef themself which is a big plus! They make their fries, mayo and buns themself as well. Also the service is very nice. I have went here many times before and so far is the chicken brgr the favorite 👌🏼More

The first week after Friends & Brgrs opened in Vaasa I went to eat there, and I wasn't at all impressed. In my opinion, everything was really salty and - to those prices - quite low quality. But this was back in August 2018. That...first time, I did kind of like the taste, but I just couldn't get past the saltyness at all. Yesterday I went there again, and I was happy to find out that things had improved. This time, the saltyness was gone and the burger was juicy and tasty. The fries were also much better and my overall experience was that this place had matured in a good way. I still think that it's a bit overpriced, considering that you're supposed to clear your own table, and the portions aren't that big. But then again, this IS food craftsmanship. All in all, I think this is a great place if you want an actual burger experience and not just any burger.More

I had a Vaasa Burger. It was really delicous, one of the best I ever had. Although it is in a shopping mall the ambient is nice with a nice view on the outside.

Decent service however could expect more from prices, ie table serving or at least cleaning ! Nice that you can see how food is made. I like local ingredients use. Interesting views on the street, not romantic :) Overall quite ok but didn't tempt me...to come back...More

These burgers and the french fries are the best you can get in Vaasa. The portions don't look so big but you will be full. I would recommend the aioli burger. They also bake their own bread. The only minus is that the Heinz ketchup...bottles stand all day long on the tables and after they have been opened they need to be stored in a fridge, not in room temperature!More

I ordered burger meal well done and the cashier said it was ok. When i got the burger it wasn't well done at all. Also most of the fries i got were small mostly 2 cm long short stumps or sliver of the potato skin....The price of the meal was pretty high for a hamburger meal and i was surely dissapointed with the results.More

I had imagined a great big burger experience, with table service. Something more then what you get at Macdonalds or Hesburger. What you get after waiting half an hour for the food and paying a very high end lunch price, is a very small burger...without any extra taste and some good french fries. Left hungry and disappointed. Will never eat here again. The only plus was the personnel, very friendly, hard working and business oriented.More
