“Well hidden 50's style diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We found this diner by an accident when walking past Marques de Pombal square. It is decorated nicely in 50s style and it serves different kinds of burgers etc. Our burgers were pretty good and well made. The staff spoke enough English to understand us and to take our orders correctly. This place doesn't offer anything special but in overall the food was quite okay and fairly cheap too.

“Nice decoration, awfull food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Very very nice place, fun and well decorated. it is a real pitty that the food was so bad. we we're 6 persons and all of us were dissapointed. Any trailer can make a better burger than them. It seams that don't even have a cooker, just some guy heating old buns and fliping meat without seasoning.

“A disaster”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Unfriendly, rude and disgusting food! Never again.
The burgers were covered by a terrible fat sauce and the fries tasted like nothing. My wife couldn't finish and the waiter told her sth in portuguese, but we understood that it was unfriendly. Please avoid. If you want a real burger go to Hard Rock cafe.

“Rude, overworked staff, average atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is a typical but very average American Diner in terms of its menu and design, but the terrible staff who took ages to take our orders, let us order second drinks etc.

The food is nothing to write home about, but apart from a terrible milkshake it was ok. Unless you enjoy lots of noise and kids screaming the atmosphere is pretty poor...

Personally I wouldn't come back here as it's not my thing, but if you really love an averagely priced burger give it a try!
