Breakfast
There’s a special feel to Bill’s Cambridge restaurant. Tucked away on a small back street, the restaurant opens up like a Tardis once you step inside, with a bar, a library, a big open dining area and a private dining space. Newly refurbished, expect vibrant colour, cosy corners and plenty of quirk. Bill’s is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between.

    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.

    A lovely place for Valentine's dinner, with good options for vegetarians and lovely ambiance. Quite good value for a set Valentine's menu too, even if the cocktails were a little small.

    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.

    Booked a 7pm dinner slot at Bill’s Cambridge, to celebrate with a friend. The fish pie was exceptional, all food, including a vegan burger and the Halloumi fries, where amazing and the Pink Lemonade is unimaginably good. Was the quietest I’ve ever seen it, very relaxed and chill. If I had any criticisms, it would be chronically tight on the fries, really annoys me that £5 buys you one potato, would it kill you to fill the container and the fish pie was quite watery, showing a definite lack of mash potatoes. Overall another great meal at Bill’s.

    I had the watermelon salad - I think it was called the Santorini salad. It was the nicest salad I have ever had! Very tasty dressing, pumpkin seeds, watermelon, feta cheese. I finished every last bit. Flatbread was also very nice. My friend had the brunch English breakfast which she thoroughly enjoyed. Nice atmosphere and quick service which was needed as we were off to the theatre after.

    The food was great, the team were lovely, prices have gone up a lot recently with a bottle of standard wine being £33 and main courses over £15. I also noticed that they charge you to reply to the confirm your table text message which is a bit cheap.

    We were welcomed with a smile and even as we walked to our table, staff were friendly and welcoming. We were tucked away in a corner with another big party of 7 who were extremely loud which made it hard for us to converse. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable but did leave us for long periods of time before we could ask for anything. Food was value for money and lots of it, quite tasty. Cutlery was dirty which is a huge bug bear of mine! Loved the kids eat free offer but we didn't know about this until we got the bill or we would have been more adventurous with our choice. We will come back however as the atmosphere is lovely and so is the food.
