    As always the restaurant was welcoming, and the staff were excellent. However for the first time we had a less than excellent experience. My husbands steak and chips were cold and had to be returned. The staff were very apologetic and arranged for another to be provided, but it meant that we ate our anniversary dinner one at a time. When dessert arrived once again my husbands dessert was cold (he'd ordered the mincemeat and apple crumble). Not wanting to eat our desserts separately we ate without complaining but were overall disappointed with our experience. We like our food hot and freshly prepared and served but Bills, on this occasion, did not meet our expectations.

    Lovely meals on the whole However the chips were so heavily salted they were inedible. I don’t complain often. All I had was an apology. No offer of a replacement or deduction It’s was a lttle dark in the restaurant I had to use my phone torch to read menus. Again I accidentally knocked my wine over due to it being too dark to see properly. No offer of replacement The wine should have had a £10 discount which I had to ask for as it hadn’t been taken off the bill.

    We would recommend Bill's in Cardiff Bay without hesitation - we had the most wonderful evening, and can't wait for our next trip! We live 2 hours away from Cardiff, but we will definitely come back again as soon as we can think of a good excuse!! We all loved it, including our dog Cally, and thank you for a lovely evening!

    Having eaten at Bills before we were expecting a reasonably priced and tasty meal. Unfortunately the buttermilk chicken burger was extremely bland. The chicken literally tasted of nothing. It seemed to wash away the taste of everything else. Kids meals looked came out looking miserable and the macaroni and cheese looked as if it had come out of a microwave and had cooled down leaving a skin to form on top. Staff were great and the service was second to none.

    Decent food, but the behind the bar nosies were very loud, empty bottles being dropped- far too noisy. Also adding a 12.5% tip onto the bill is not a customer friendly way, if I want to leave a tip, I will.

    As ever, staff and food were great. Table service was efficient. I had bought a 50% top up voucher. Wish I’d bought more! Lydia was amazing. Still think it’s a bit pricey, but I’ll still go back soon. It was great to see so many customers there. The staff coped amazingly.

    A bit of a disappointing experience… starters came out 5 minutes apart and so did the mains. I had a Christmas special which was awful, a nut roast with a strange flavour and as dry as a bone and roast potatoes which tasted like they were about 3 days old. Manager very helpful and refunded my meal and offered an alternative etc. Also strongly disagree with the ‘optional’ 12.5% service charge which they add. I wouldn’t normally write a review based on one bad experience but my Son and me called in at 11.30am today (2nd Jan) and asked if they had a table for 2 and the female at front of house couldn’t have been more dismissive. Didn’t even have the manners to look at us while she was telling us they had nothing and “may in about an hour”. Disappointing.

    Enjoyable meal. Able to use my Blue light Card so meal was discounted. Also felt safe and well distanced from other diners while there.
