About the restaurant
Expect a ‘bore da’ at breakfast and a ‘nos da’ after drinks when you join us in the Wyndham Arcade. Whether you’re after a quiet booth for two, or a table for 10 in our outdoor terrace (in Wales, we know...), we’ve got you covered.

Staff were super friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was lively but not too loud. Pretty busy on a Saturday. Food was fairly average.

About the restaurant
Old building with colourful interiors you wish you had in your house but aren’t quite brave enough for? Check and check. We’ve brought the classic Bill’s formula to Cardiff’s Mermaid Bay. Find us in the Pilotage Building, just follow your nose and the sound of clinking glasses.

I fancied a cooked breakfast but didn’t feel like cooking so went to Bills for their big brunch. I wasn’t disappointed ,it was cooked to perfection. Not many places can cook fried eggs to my liking but the fried eggs I had were perfectly cooked. Very enjoyable meal and as usual the staff were very friendly and efficient, it was very busy but I didn’t have to wait long for my meal. I’m a regular visitor to Bills, sometimes alone and other times with friends and have enjoyed every visit. My friends who had never visited Bills asked when we were coming back. I’ll be back very soon.

Was our first time here and we wasn’t disappointed! They made us feel very welcome and really went out their way to make our anniversary special with a welcome drink and a nice glitter sign in our dessert saying happy anniversary. The food was lovely and the staff are very good at their roles. We will be back!

The service was fantastic, the restaurant was very busy for a Thursday evening in a small town and created a buzzing atmosphere. The food was flavoursome, fresh and a little spicy for certain dishes! I’ll be recommending Janet’s to everyone.
