“Tasty burger - nice relief of Thai food”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

I really enjoyed Thai food in Ko Phi Phi, however once per while it is necessary to have a portion of "real meat" and that is why I came here. Hamburgers at Trocadero were delicious and juicy.

Very tasty burger, fresh lettuce, tomatoes and onions with it. You can choose if the patty shall be rare, medium etc. Staff is very friendly as well - totally the best burger on Phi Phi!

“Good if you're craving a burger - but don't expect the best you've ever had”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

Eaten here three times. Great if you are craving a burger but the quality is limited by the fact that the quality of the ingredients available on the island is poor. Ie, if you haven't seen a cow in Thailand, which I haven't, it's not a good prognostic sign. Big burgers: beef quality not great especially if you're from Australia or another beefy country. Buns a bit sweet and cheese a bit plasticky. Soy burger - pretty yum and not like one I've had before. Chips - amazing but very small portion size and need to provide more chips if going to charge 60 baht on top of burger. Atmosphere is pretty cool. Advise owner to use some tongs. I'm sure it's much much cleaner than everywhere else on the island but since you can see the food prep it's a bit unsettling.

But overall, would eat there again when craving another burger. Have heard pretty bad stories about other burgers on the island. Again, if there are no cows in the country, it is not a good sign. Would recommend to try and see for yourself.

“Truly yummy!”
Reviewed 16 November 2012 via mobile

We have been here for 4 days and have been here for 2 of them!
My boyfriend is a big lover of meat and burgers and he went as far to say it was the best burger he had ever had.
The guy who works there is lovely and works really hard. He is from Italy (if we remember correctly) and has been in Thailand for 8 years and speaks fluent Thai which we thought was great. You order at the counter and help yourself to drinks and pay at the counter when you are ready.
Food served on a tray with paper which we liked. You are asked how you would like the meat cooked. We liked ours well done and thats how it came, even with a slit to make sure.
Everything here is just simple and tasty.
