Tucked away in St Martin’s Courtyard, just off Upper St Martin’s Lane, Bill’s Covent Garden restaurant has plenty of seating across two floors, as well as outside. Think comfortable sofas, pops of colour and unique antiques and treasures chosen by Bill himself. Open all day and into the night.

Fantastic staff made this a great dinner with our children. They were so lovely and accommodating, and we had a great time celebrating a birthday.

Nice food and a lovely setting. I found it really weird that all the eating staff and greeters were white and all the BAME staff were doing the lower paid jobs - really obvious and uncomfortable disparity

I felt the manner of the Maitre d was rather offensive - almost rude, like he was doing us a favour by letting us sit down at our table. He told us AFTER we had sat down that breakfast was no longer available; our main reason for coming. Said we should have booked earlier but not politely. One breakfast dish was on the mains menu, which he could have pointed out to us in a more polite way. Other staff were very nice and their service was good and the food good.

Bills never disappoints took my grandchildren there after the theatre. They accommodated us well together with gluten free options. Beautiful setting in Covent Garden. It ended a perfect day.

The door person I found to be a bit unfriendly. We arrived early and table wasn’t ready which is fine but we went back 1 min before our booking and was told we couldn’t go in as our table wasn’t ready and we had to wait the 1 min. The table was empty and ready to be used for 10 mins (we popped in so little one could use loo) so I feel he was being a little awkward!
Once inside the staff were so lovely and friendly and great with our kids and the food was lovely. Slightly slow service but it was a busy sat night. Most tables around us had been served and eaten and paid before we finished our mains 🤣

Good menu and good food. Service was slow and inattentive. It was uncomfortably cool due to draughts or open windows. Reasonably priced.

Service was very good. Unfortunately some of the food was barely warm, tables very close together and air conditioning made us so cold we left earlier than we intended to. Have never had this experience at any other Bill’s restaurants.

Good value and friendly service. Noisy and buzzy downstairs. Choose an upstairs table if you would like a quieter table .

Having the plates given to the person at the end of the table by the waiter to be passed down to the person sitting at the other end of the table is completely unprofessional!. Staff lacked personality and food had to be sent back because it was cold. Not really any apology. We usually love eating at Bills but may think twice in future.

Adequate dinner, nice service and fine ambience. Perfect for a no-fuss pre-theatre meal. I hope the team at this restaurant are doing OK, I know it's a tough time in hospitality right now. Hang in there!

Lovely afternoon treat. I went with my family for a drink and a dessert and we were dissatisfied. Lovely waiting staff. Good food and value. Was busy so had to wait a little for the bill at the end. But we will be returning.
