We went there based on the unique menu we saw online but a lot of those items were no longer there. It was very much typical "bar food" and two of the items we ordered were not even what was described on the menu. They claim to be a tapas restaurant but aside from the appetizers, which are small plate foods anyway, the other items were just regular meals. The bar itself and drink menu were great but the food left a lot to be desired. What a great space though they could be killing it!

After a late afternoon of errands we stopped by Rugan's Gastro Pub to try something new. As they Celebrate their 1st year of business here in Burlington; we were quite pleased. They have an awesome staff, very attentive and friendly. Shantel did a wonderful job all evening long. After perusing the vast menu of libations, we settled on a Viking blood Mead for me and the Bad Hombre Cocktail for Barbie, both were delicious and with that successful; we also had a couple of the gastro pub small plates. The bacon honey Sriracha Brussell Sprouts were outstanding and the Chocolate Creme Brulle was the perfect touch to wrap up our evening as well.
We've already invited a couple of friends of ours for a second visit, we think they'll be thrilled with the atmosphere and dining experience too. Its not a place for heavy dinners but an awesome place for small plates, good friends and a wide-variety of cocktail options

My only regret about this place is that I didn't get back there more than once last fall for their amazing Butternut Squash soup. But I've had many things on their menu and they're always delicious. I'm happy to recommend it to anyone (and have recommended it to many friends!). Fantastic addition to the Burlington downtown scene!

Great bar and great eats! The service at Rugan's was awesome. I was also impressed with their selection of spirits as well as food.
