    I usually go to Bill’s for an evening meal but this time I decided to have a breakfast so chose the big brunch. I wasn’t disappointed, every cooked to perfection. Will definitely visit again for breakfast. Staff were great as usual.

    I decided to spend New Year’s Eve at my favourite dining place and I wasn’t disappointed. Great atmosphere and as usual fantastic customer service. They were very busy but I didn’t have to wait long to be served. The staff are so friendly and although they were rushed off their feet they were doing it with a smile. I was greeted with a warm welcome and was instantly recognised as I’d had a Xmas meal at Bills in late November. The food again was amazing which is why I visit Bill’s at least once a month. 5 stars all round.

    We booked for 7pm . Service extremely slow to order and arrive. Dishes slow to be collected and waited to order dessert only to be told we had 10 minutes left only due to private function. We were not advised of this on arrival and service so slow no time to order anything else other than main course . Extremely disappointed especially as we are regulars at Bills

    I treated myself to an early Christmas meal and I wasn’t disappointed.The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The staff are the friendliest I have ever come across in all the places I have ever eaten at. Bill’s is now my place to go to when I fancy having a meal out and I have booked a table for New Year’s Eve.

    I'm quite disappointed this time around, I've been going to bills for a long time. The starter was very greasy and tasted of cooking oil. The mains was a bit overpriced, in my opinion, for what you get. Also booked in advance but had to wait by the door in a lot of traffic for a while, which was quite annoying. I personally think bills have taken a big step backwards, considering the last time around I was very impressed

    We arrived at the restaurant to a notice on the door saying they had to close unexpectedly. This was not communicated with ourselves, this was on a busy sat night the night before we were running a half marathon so very stressful to have no dinner reservation

    The menu is varied and we fancied quite a few of the starters and mains. The service was efficient, friendly and professional. We both enjoyed our three courses, which were served promptly and the final bill was very reasonable. Will come again.

    Grubby seating area, window frame had some random hairs splayed , sons glass has a something that looked like a lump of porridge stuck inside the glass, first time to visit bill and not as nice as I had expected , maybe attributed to it being a bank holiday but didn’t feel very clean there at all

    Good welcome but went downhill from there. Lovely staff but very slow service on initial drinks and the food. Couple on next table sent one of their meals back! When food eventually came both of our dishes had something that looked like pea shoots that would have been better in the bin rather than on a plate. Steak was tough and a third was in edible as it was gristle and fat. We’ve eaten at Bills restaurants before but won’t be going back if this is the current standard….would not recommend

    Had a fabulous experience yesterday when we visited for lunch at the Cardiff Bay branch. Food was lovely and tasty, lots of choice on the menu and reasonably priced too. But the real icing on the cake was the amazingly friendly service from Anna. She ensured service was quick, was super efficient and very attentive (without being too much so). If I had to find something to ‘pick on’ for improvement - the toilets were perfectly usable but could do with a facelift and more of them - only one was in use at time of our visit, but this didn’t stop us having a great time. We would definitely recommend.

    This was my 3rd visit and it didn’t disappoint. Great food and service at a very reasonable price. Very friendly and welcoming staff who treat everyone with the same friendly manner, some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever come across, it doesn’t feel like you are a customer more like a friend visiting another friends for lunch/dinner. And Bill’s is also very dog friendly which is a real bonus given the area it is situated in. Will be visiting many more times.
