“Another good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

I often visit pillars when I am in Cardiff shopping. If you want a posh modern restaurant, then this is not for you. However if you want a good wholesome meal, fast service and reasonably prices then you can't really go wrong. One observation - not user friendly for disabled people and then only way to it is down a flight of stairs

“Great Value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Excellent basic food, quickly served by friendly and efficient staff. Huge seating area, and tables cleaned within seconds of being vacated. Manager / Duty Manager, is hands on helping and organising in a very efficient manner.

True, the toilets could do with modernisation, but they are regularly cleaned and it must be remembered that there can be up to 200 people dining at any one time.

Forget the plush and expensive restaurants in Cardiff, often staffed by people looking for nothing other than tips, and use this gem of a place that charges less than you would pay at a takeaway.

“Pillers Toilets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I visited Pillers for the first time today. Food ok
But toilets (Gents) really do need some work done on them it was midday
so they had not been used very much the smell was bad and dirty, even my grandson 13 remarked how bad it was.
If i employed the toilet cleaner i would sack them.Managment must know about this no good saying well thats only the toilets.
Please get it sorted and do yourself a favour.

“Nice little find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Stumbled on this place whilst looking for a brunch and thought it was a great little find.
There was lots of choice whether you wanted healthy salads or something a little bit heavier
like a full breakfast or old favourites like fish and chips or cottage pie etc.
The price was very reasonable too, and the staff and service very good.
Will definately visit again as we stay in Cardiff quite regularly.

“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

I'm being won over by Pillars. Yes it's a bit stuck in the 80s but you just can't deny the value for money. Two meals for just over £10 (£13 with drinks) in the middle of Cardiff with plenty of place to sit and very friendly staff. I'm not sure how they do it but it could be the best value for money in Cardiff if you're looking for a straightforward meal.
