Fish pie, hardly any mash on it.. not as good as used to be.
Root vegetables were undercooked.
Seasonal greens was crunchy white cabbage and bacon..
Not a very nice meal to celebrate my 50th.

Table easily booked. All Covid checks done on arrival. Great service and food. Expensive for breakfast but I suppose you have to pay for quality.
Definitely recommend!

Very enjoyable experience overall, however being charged service charge is annoying, I should tip the waiter/waitress if I feel they’re worth it and I should choose the amount I tip.

Bill’s was reassuringly very quiet due to the limited capacity as a result of the current restrictions. That was perfect as it felt very safe, however, as a result, I expected the service and food quality to have been much better given the number of diners. We still paid the service charge which had already been added to the bill as we appreciated the staff working during these tough times, but overall, it was very disappointing.

Having always enjoyed going to Bills restaurants, I was keen to go to the Cardiff one (again). My visit this time was disappointing as the service was not of the previous high standard. We were, of course, expecting it to be different due to the Covid restrictions and appreciate that the staff are under a great deal of stress but still felt that the service was unnecessarily poor. We still left the (voluntary) service charge as we are aware of the difficult times being suffered by the hospitality industry at the moment, being in the business ourselves. We hope to find a better experience on our next visit.

Food was ok except ordered the Christmas tree cheesecake dessert and was disappointed to find it contained no cheesecake!!! Sent back and had to have something else which didn't really want or like!! Service was very slow and did feel forgotten as waitress never seemed to come back and had to keep asking other staff for things. Also had to request our desserts in the end cos waited 25 mins and just wasn't coming and we needed to leave. Not very impressed!!
