    Nice place. Nice atmosphere. The food came in decent time but unfortunately the pitta bread that was part of my main was completely burnt and nearly rock hard plus my partner ordered sweet potato fries and got normal fries. The only other thing was the waiter had some attitude and seemed to not want to be working there.

    It was my first time going to Bill's. It looks like it is a good place to go for brunch, but unfortunately we were not that lucky for lunch. my husband's first choice (meatballs) was not available and then he ordered steak and fries and it was not memorable. The fries seemed to be reheated and the yolk from the fried eggs was overcooked. I ordered the hippy bowl and it was also OK... I love lentils and vegetables... this just seemed like a bunch of random things put together that didn't really match... there were even blueberries on the bowl. Lastly we were with our daughter and there was no apple or orange juice. Probably it was just our luck that day, but if you're going to spend that money on lunch you want to have a good experience and unfortunately it was not. The restaurant itself is very nice and the service was too.

    Food was tasty except the Tuna tacos which tasted after nothing really. The seafood linguini were very nice but the portion was rather on the small side.

    Lovely food, quick service, lovely staff. They accommodated our disabled mother by finding a table on the ground floor and provided lovely service to us even providing free drinks when glass was showered around us due to a dropped drink. Unfortunately they had run out of steak but the food we did have was very tasty.

    Our party enjoyed the Santorini salad, Caesar salad and classic burger. The restaurant was busy so would advise to book (like we did). Service was very good. I think it would be good to have a small pudding on offer, maybe with a coffee or tea. We were too full for the normal size puddings.

    Seated near the window which is what I asked for. Had avocado on toast. That bit was delicious but one of the poached eggs was hard and both were cold. The dessert if warm doughnuts and sauce was delicious. It was quite busy but no one was too loud so overall our lunch was enjoyable

    Despite making a reservation weeks in advance, I was made to wait outside for 20 minutes because the restaurant was full. The maitre d seemed disinterested and somewhat unresponsive when I asked as to whether I seats were ready after this time. To add to this, a sign outside read "No booking, no problem" which resulted in queues of up to 20 angry patrons waiting outside only to be turned away once they got to the door. This sign was left for the entirety of our stay, rather than simply removing the sign and avoiding the inconvenience for others. However, the food was very good and worth the price especially when taking the area into account. Aside from our initial encounter, the service at our table was good as well and I would be happy to dine again, perhaps at a different location.
