    Finding the food a little boring, the menus need updating and standards higher as they were 2years ago. Although the service was good we felt we were being rushed, it was an extremely busy day in Cardiff and that had its affect no doubt. It will be our last visit until the menu changes.

    Great vibe and food was excellent. Only thing I found off putting was need to pay via QR code and the 12.5% service charge which whilst discretionary wasn’t easy to avoid and required staff intervention. The service wasn’t great but I felt uncomfortable reflecting that in my payment.

    The menu offered smoked salmon & prawn cocktail, the food arrived without smoked salmon! I asked for the salmon and was told it was blended into one if the 2 small sauces. They did bring some “extra smoked salmon” when I asked them for it, but I shouldn’t have had to ask. It was disappointing but the staff, while deluded by the ‘just tell them it’s in the sauce’ message by the manager(which we overheard) were pleasant about it. Never had any issue at a Bill’s before now. Disappointing.

    We came today and the service was shocking. We arrived at exactly the right time for the table and it was still being cleaned so we were asked to stand by the front door to wait. We were in the way and no where to sit etc. Then we had our food, the kids portions were very small. Myself and my partner had to give some of our food to our son or he would have been starving. No one came and asked if we wanted any more drinks etc and I would have liked another. The waiter sat another two people really close to us, literally less than a foot away which was too close for any privacy. Then we sat for a good 10 minutes after finishing our food, no one came to ask if we wanted anything else, we started putting coats on etc, still no one so we stood, still no one, I had to ask for the bill myself even though many staff had walked past. The adults meals were lovely, but the service was disappointing to say the least. I won’t be returning back in a hurry.

    We were sat by the fire exit and that door was being used for staff to go in and out. The door would be left open by staff causing a draft especially it being February was rather cold. The door would slam and just made the evening less enjoyable. A 12.5% service charge was added and we tried to do it through the QR code where they automatically added another tip ontop! The food was ok but was slightly cold. Disappointing overall.

Our server was so friendly, as was every member of staff we encountered during our visit and happy to answer any questions we had. Drinks were very pretty! The food was absolutely delicious, we had the signature fish pie and a shawarma. Olives were very, very tasty. Highly recommend and we’ve already booked again for next month!

    We enjoyed a lovely relaxed evening meal at Bill’s. The service was excellent all the way through from a friendly greeting to a warm goodbye. The veganuary specials were delicious. We tried the Moroccan “chicken” burger and vegan shawarma. Both were bursting with flavour and good value for money. Prompt and personal service from Suki who seemed to make everyone feel at home in the place. We’ll definitely be back when next in Cardiff.

    Overall the meal was okay, the food came super fast but it meant our drinks hadn’t arrived at the time we got our food and didn’t arrive until half way through us eating. We ordered some additional drinks that both came wrong and after one extra round of drinks following food we were never asked again if we would like any others or if we wanted to pay the bill etc We ended up paying and leaving using the QR code - overall it was an okay experience but appreciate as it was New Years Eve there may have been some Pressure to get people in and out For the price we paid, we probably wouldn’t go back as a first choice

    This place was one of the worst places I have eaten in …my children’s meal was cold had to look for someone to ask to re do this only for them to warm it up in a micro as u can tell by the colour of the pasta n he then got less chips …my steak was as tough as old boots asked for medium some of it was grey n some raw the fried onions were cold they hardly had any soft drinks for my son he wanted Fanta only to be told it was for staff only …service was awful you had to shout to someone for a drink …would not recommend at all £16 for service charge for 2 adults n 2 children and they tried to add a tip on to that of £7 no chance …£150 coat and was not happy by the experience ..would not recommend at all stay well clear of this place

    It's not going to take me 50 letters to tell you how amazing this place is! Lovely, attentive waiting staff, great food! My only problem is that we were too squashed in! I understand the necessity of fitting as many in as possible, but it was very awkward getting in and out of our table without disturbing other diners!
