Staff great, restaurant interior great, location great……. Food was very basic, seems a shame to have gone to all the effort to train staff, design the interior but for me disappointing food. We had a variety of starters and mains, all were pretty uninspiring. The...positive with the food, is it is sensibly priced, but you can get a lot better value elsewhere. If the staff were not great then this would be a 1 star review.More

The general manager is a very good looking man, made my visit even more enjoyable. The food was good too and the staff were very accommodating.

Great place for food in Southampton staff very friendly and accommodating. Have to give it up for Chantelle she was great couldn’t do enough even though the place was packed. We arrived 2 hours early for booking and still found us a great table for...us. Good selection of cocktails well I did try them all. The food was great good selection of starters and mains. I do have to say that the staff did help the night go and hats off to our server Chanterelle. You have to try it out. I know we will be back next time in Southampton.More

Booked a table outside on the terrace for breakfast because we had our dog with us. Although it is always disappointing when restaurants say... Dog friendly but then make you sit outside😢. However whilst it would have been amazing if we could have sat inside,...our experience was lovely, the staff were helpful and very friendly. They even turned on the heater for us, which I have to say kept us very warm. Something important to remember though is that if you are sitting outside, the heaters are only above the tables next to the wall. Our breakfast was lovely but the pancake stacks, could have benefited from having more syrup or fruit to make it less heavy and dry.More

We’re in Southampton for work for two weeks and went to Bills 3 times as there was so much on the menu to choose from. Food was excellent. Staff very friendly. Lovely environment.

Lovely experience. Our friends ordered some burgers without coleslaw but when the food came over it had coleslaw in the burger. We mentioned this to the staff and they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with all of the food and...made them fresh burgers as well as taking our drinks off the bill. They were also very wary of my boyfriends mint allergy. There was no need for the extra effort they all went to for us but we appreciate all the hard work and attention they paid to us. Amazing staff and food!More

Very good food and great service. Although we had a dedicated server, everyone seemed to work as a team creating a lovely atmosphere. Our only niggle is that it is a little over-priced for what you get.

Visited when the Boat show was on so was not sure if we would even get a table. Lucky enough we did. The staff were lovely and so was the food. Perhaps the toilets could have been a little bit cleaner.

My parter and I with are young daughter visited this restaurant and as soon as we sat down we were made to feel uncomfortable asked for a high chair and even that was hard work them food look extremely nice however tasted the complete opposite....We asked for the bill while we where getting are daughter in her push chair they where hovering over us to pay and then to find a 12.5% service charge on the bill is a joke will not be using any of bill’s restaurants againMore
