    Party of six adults dined at Bill’s on a Saturday, luckily we had booked as there was a queue for tables. Not having visited before we were quite looking forward to the menu. We were seated on time and viewed the menus (including a GF menu). There is a small variety of dishes, wouldn’t say it was a vast menu and mainly made up of brunch dishes and main meals. Several of our party had burgers which were fine, the sharing cheese fondue was a big disappointment with leaves, celery. apple and radishes for dipping?!?!? The bread was very hard and at times too hard to even cut or chew., definitely wouldn’t order this again for the cost of the meal it was quite poor value for money. The duck salad was deconstructed and the watermelon had more water than melon, although the duck was tasty. Luckily we had a 20% off voucher as it would have been disappointing to pay the full value for the meals we had. Although the staff were friendly and efficient the food did let the restaurant down and we would therefore not be visiting a Bill’s again.

    We came for dinner on Saturday evening. Service and ambiance great, but food was disappointing. Starters were nice but not the mains - shawarma chicken was dry and tasteless, rump steak was chewy and unpleasant, and burger was tasteless. Basically all my guests had negative comments on their mains, so I won’t be hosting anyone else at Bill’s

    Always a pleasant experience at Bill’s Cambridge, whenever we’re in town we’d definitely come here with our little pup, the staff are always so accommodating and welcoming. Food is always great too, thoroughly enjoyed our big brunches!

    They bought me my food while we had to wait 25 minutes for them to bring my partners. They claimed it was because they thought we were eating my dish as a starter which didn’t make any sense and didn’t reflect how we made our orders.

    Great place for a bite to eat with atmosphere. We’ve visited many a time - day and night. And find the environment really nice, you can take dogs (they even have a doggie menu) and children are welcome so great for a family meal in a nice comfortable (funky) environment.

    Been to a few bills and didn’t expect much to be honest but really can’t complain with anything. If the food had been at a much more expensive restaurant, you still would have been very happy.

    I’m never disappointed with Bill’s whichever one I go to. The one in Cambridge was busy but that didn’t mean we didn’t get served or our food delivered in a timely manner. Always good quality and a good variety on the menu. Those of my party that hadn’t been before thoroughly enjoyed it.

    We had a very nice breakfast for two (with a BOGOF offer to help) and two cups of coffee. The food was excellent. The service was good. The meal was excellent value and I'd be quite happy to pay the price even with a special offer. My only 'complaint' and it is common to so many venues, is why do we have to endure background music, especially at 10.30 in the morning. Is anyone actually asking for this?! That said, we'll definitely go again! Bills is our go to place for brunch or breakfast in central Cambridge.

    Other than an initial lukewarm welcome, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were served by very pleasant staff, who despite being very busy, took time to take our order with friendly smiles. The food was delicious and we were able to take our time over our meal. We loved the setting and the location.

    The service was very slow . We were there an hour before anyone took our order (even drinks!) My husband also asked for water for the table 3 times and we never received any. I was annoyed a standard service tip was charged given the fact I wouldn't have wanted to tipp. Safe to say I would not go there again

    Great ambience, felt very Christmassy and cosy. Staff were super efficient and helpful. Humous and fried aubergine starter was delicious. We had spinach paneer curry - way too much paneer and served in blocks rather than cubes, not enough sauce and spinach was lacking.

    Our group had lots of vegetarians, and we really enjoyed the brunch options. We also brought along an energetic preschooler and were treated well. Service was great and bottomless drinks were refilled quickly. Would definitely bring guests back to the same spot in the future.

    Second visit for a team lunch from work. Seating for larger groups is always good - usually at the back of the restaurant. Everyone was happy with their food - we only drank tap water. The staff were not very especially welcoming or cheerful, which was unfortunately noticeable. It didn’t spoilt our visit and we’re likely to return as the menu suits everyone and is a reasonable price point.
