Adjacent to one of the oldest cinemas in London and downstairs from the Electric House, The Diner opens at 8am for breakfast, switches to the all-day menu at 12pm and keeps serving until late at night (you can drop in for dinner until midnight Monday to Saturday or 10pm Sunday).

The bar is open until late every day - offering up a wide range drinks including decadent American style milkshakes, smoothies and juices, a wide range of beers and ales, and great seasonal cocktails.

The Diner is all about unfussy combinations of the best ingredients; quick, friendly service and food that is sent straight from the kitchen as and when it’s ready. There’s booth and bar seating, and a specially chosen soundtrack played from the Diner’s reel-to-reel machine.

    Terrible service, we were being ignored. Food below average. What is happening to this place? In the end they took 50% off our bill. Still, I don’t think I’m going there anytime soon. Very disappointing evening.

    Only half the breakfast menu was available but we were only told that after we had sat down and ordered drinks. Light at the table broken and hung down low over the table, we were asked not to touch it when we tried to fix it. Smoothies are pre-prepared, not freshly made. Juices from a bottle, not fresh. Overall v average for the price.

    It’s always amazing here - fantastic chill retro ambience - the only food you want to eat - made perfectly- and good value for money. That’s why I return again and again. There is nowhere else I ever want to eat on Portobello.

    I used to visit the Electric regularly, very disappointed, first time back in around a year. There were quite a few problems to be noted. 1) we were sat and waited for menus up until I had to get up and ask for them. 2) Mozzarella sticks came before our water or our drinks! 3) Ribs overly smoked and we're not nice at all, no one ate them at the table. 4) one of our desserts the lemon tart was considerably smaller than on previous visits. 5) The Service was absolutely atrocious, I've never seen it so bad there and the restaurant was EMPTY so they can't even use "BUSY" as an excuse. 6) we ordered the bill and we all decided to pay in cash in Great British Pounds, the currency of this country and our waiter said they don't take cash and proceeded to get the manager. The manager turned up and started waving his hands and pointing at the cash saying "we don't take this, we don't take it" The manager and I proceeded to disagree with eachother and he told me it's written on the menu, it might be but it's not plastered and who looks for how you are able to pay, he said that he "knew" we had cards, regardless of the fact if we had cards or not, there should have been no issues with the acceptance of cash. Due to the manager being rude I suggested that he take the cash and work out how to pay the bill, it's not my problem, he then took the cash and said I can't give you change and then walked away and presumably paid the bill. I feel extremely let down and what was once such a cool and chic venue has turned into one that I don't think I would go back to again.

    we were a group of 6 and arrived at 9am for brunch, food was good but the service and arrival of the food was really scattered with some being served 15 minutes after the first food was out, a side of back arriving a good 5 plus minutes before the eggs that it was supposed to go with so it had to be sent back to be warmed up. Took 20 mins to get a filter coffee after ordering at the outset even though other coffees arrived way earlier, and this early in the brunch time and it was not so busy when we arrived. hard to fathom why the kitchen works to achieve this chaos and it left us feeling less good in what was meant to be a treat. and fortunately we were enjoying each other s company so the time passed smoother than it if had been a working breakfast or a meeting.

    It's all about the Honey chicken which is plentiful and yummy! Drinks are pricey so be warned however you are dining in Portobello Road so to be expected. The lemon meringue pie is to die for and easily shared. Great service too dining here is defo a firm favourite for us!

    Service was terrible. Coffee took over 30 minutes, then a power outage further delayed our food. Waitstaff were rude, unhelpful, and we refused to pay service charges. Their attitude towards their job was evident and affected their performance. Despite positive reviews, I'm hesitant to recommend this place. Food was average, nothing special too. Music was too loud that it’s even hard to talk . Very stupid experiences.

    With the 50% off, I think it’s really worth the money. The service for the food was really quick, but it took a long time to receive the bill which was a bit disappointing. The quality of the food was nice.

    Food was terrific. The service, unfortunately, was completely chaotic. Very, very hard to get any service; to the point that we had to walk out and ask to pay on our way out - we’d asked for the bill three times. Staff seem rather forgetful, but are friendly.
