Overpriced luke warm breakfast with cold dry crispy toast.
No vegan butter available for a vegan breakfast?? Go figure! Asked for sugar, got two small sachets given to us and they were brown when we had tea. Had to ask a second time for sugar and then he brought me 3 more. Is there a sugar shortage in bills! Coffees and teas came after our breakfast had come which wasn’t ideal.
Had to hunt the vegan bacon bits on my plate! Practically non existent. Small portions and stingy. Served on very large plates to make it seem bigger than it is.
My husbands cooked breakfast not much better. Dry cold toast. Luke warm especially tomatoes. Egg yolk hard and snotty white. Complained and they took my breakfast (vegan) off the bill but I still resented my bill being £30. Won’t come again. Morrisons cooked breakfast is better. Left still hungry, uninspired and unfulfilled. Won’t go again. Very expensive for what it is and the three of us weren’t impressed.

First time visit . BREAKFAST toast was so cold it was hard , beans cold , bacon not crispy . 2 x scrambled eggs with toast . Shocking more like an Omlete and Toast cold and hard . Eggs benedict on toasted Muffin , arrived on toast with no apologies and was cold 4 people £51 , and to be honest worst breakfast I have ever had , and staff don't even speak .

Overall I was fairly satisfied with our experience at Bills in Cardiff. The waitress was excellent and the food was good and arrived promptly. My only grievance was that I thought it was all a little overpriced for what we received

Overpriced very average food, please stop thinking your a fancy restaurant and start cooking nice food. You guys can’t even cook a decent hamburger and charge £12.99 and £4.95 for a smoothie?? Rubbish place!

Staff were slow to take order and deliver food/drink orders. Felt cramped and on top of other diners. Food wasn't the best either. Not warm, over cooked and not the best tasting.
