We stopped by for lunch because of the Dr Who connection and pretty quickly wished we hadn't. The food was really poor quality thrown together with very little care. If you're here because you're a Whovian pop in and take a look but run away from the food you clever people.

Decor is better than the food. Tried a chilli dog with French fries. Disappointed with the hot dog and small portion of chilli and the fries were cold. A bit pricey for such simple food.

My fiancée and I are massive Whovians, coming to Cardiff for the Dr Who Experience. After hunting for a suitable place to eat, we clocked the diner which has hosted the two most recent Doctors and four of his companions - naturally we had to eat here. Aside from the obligatory Whovian photo and the extremely friendly service, it was... More

Fantastic Experience, Always visit this when in Cardiff Bay.

Went to the place because the fiancee is a massive whoian and sat at dr who's table. Food was a little pricey and you pay before you receive the food, which once we received it you can understand why. Had burgers and chilli and chips. The burger meat was as low as quality as they could get and still call... More

We visited here as an adult and two 10-year-olds after visiting the Dr Who Experience. The decor is amazing, and the service was excellent, the lady gave the kids chocolate coins, pointed out the Tardis doors by the bathroom, and although someone was sitting at table 11, was happy for us to go around taking photos where the Doctor had...

Great venue, lovely attentive staff, but really, really poor quality food. Could be wonderful if a little extra TLC went into the food prep & quality. However, good value & the lovely waitress took the edge off our bad experience.

Great American diner feel as you would expect.. so initially an attractive looking diner. However, what's let's it down is the lack of quality food to match. Bland burgers and over battered and greasy chicken wings..the coffee was very bitter. Sorry guys... won't return.
