    Shocking. Booked and there on time. Staff ignored us for over 5 mins before asking if we'd booked. When they finally came to take the drinks order , we ordered everything as we'd been there nearly half hour. Then food arrived, drinks arrived to other tables who came in after us but not ours. Asked where they were and then arrived. Unbelieveably they had added service charge to the bill, which i had removed. Wouldn't go near the place again

    Very good service despite being very busy. However I thought the menu uninspiring. The food chosen was a bit underwhelming but that might have been my choice. Stick with the burgers cant go wrong. Very good deserts.

    Always a friendly relaxed environment. Service was adequately timed for us as we don't like to have our courses to quickly served. The food was tasty , presented well , served fresh and hot. Prices were average for a restaurant in the city centre of Cardiff, we managed to get a table at short notice especially as there was a graduation day happening. I would recommend to anyone

    Having eaten several times at different Bills restaurants I booked in advance, this knowing it would be nice. Unfortunately where our table was placed (along with 6 other tables) it was unbelievably hot and airless. There was absolutely no ventilation even though there were large glass French doors (apparently they could not be opened) and no air conditioning or fans provided. On leaving we passed through the rest of the restaurant which had windows open and was fine. It was a real shame that nothing had be provided or a warning that we would have to sit in a totally airless area.

    Excellent visit. Don’t think you should add a service charge to the bill, even if it is optional.it’s off putting. Great time though.

    Service was attentive even though quite busy on Father’s Day. Food arrived extremely promptly-even before our drinks had arrived! Food was well presented and tasted good. Tables feel a bit on top of each other, especially if you next to a large group.

    Having the kitchen upstairs means your food goes on quite a journey before arriving at your table. The staircase is used by everyone and everyone passes a plate of food on its way to the customer. Also, I booked a table in advance and arrived on time and we had to wait to see if our table was ready. We were then walked through the whole restaurant passing spare tables and quite a few tables that had not been cleaned then taken away into a cubby hole which felt very enclosed and away from the rest of restaurant, which wasn't very nice. Our waitress was lovely though and extremely attentive as felt like we could be forgotten as placed behind a wall. I would have liked the option of where we wanted to sit as space was very enclosed- great for a couple if you wanted a romantic night but we were a group of friends and felt like we had been pushed away.

    Service wasn’t as good as the last time we visited. Kept needing to ask for rather than be offered and struggled to get staffs attention on occasion but had we not had such amazing service previously I probably wouldn’t have noticed. Food was excellent as always.

    Really enjoyed coming here for a meal before seeing Alan Partridge. We didn’t book and despite looking really busy the manager sorted us a table with no issue. Staff were really friendly and looked busy but nice. I had the sticky duck - spicy by the way but oh so tasty. We will definitely be back but will probably book as it’s popular for good reason.

    I booked Bill's for a group visit to Cardiff and being able to see the gluten free options easily on the website made a huge difference to our decision to eat there. We were also able to book for brunch, which a lot of restaurants don't offer, and which fitted with our plans for the rest of the day. Food was tasty and there was lots of choice. Our waiter was helpful and attentive, and all other staff were friendly and keen to help. We had a great time and will definitely return in future.
