We went to Bill's on the morning of our 2nd day in Brighton. Miserable weather, wind and rain battered coast. We were all a bit worse for wear. Bill's was a break in the clouds, literally and figuratively.

There were 12 of us, which I'm sure anyone can attest, is a complete and utter nightmare when it comes to organising food for all of them. Bill's revelled in the opporunity. We were sat on the balcony, two of us at first, and as tables cleared and our friends arrived, tables and chairs were there waiting for them. Huge draughts of orange juice, great espresso while we waited. Our food order taken without hassle, and brought to us promptly: warm, well-cooked and delectable. I had the veggie breakfast - a melange of flavour that seemed like it shouldn't work, but did - guacamole, mushrooms, houmous and sweet chilli? I'm making my own version this weekend.

My gf had a bacon sandwich, extra crispy bacon - they managed to amend everyone's orders as we went off-piste with no hassle.

And it was all pretty cheap.

Get to Bill's or you'll regret it.

Went on a spontaneous first date to Brighton last night and a friend recommded Bill's. Lovely service, beautiful food. I had the Halloumi and Houmous burger and my date had Bill's Fish pie... we joked that it had better be good or we'd be complaining straight to Bill. He said it was the most delicious thing he had ever tasted!
We had a lovely time and are already roping our friends into coming back for a double date!

A very comfortable casual place to eat. Great prices, the house wine is very drinkable, the food is not the experience but more than decent.

Read about Bills in the 'Taste Britain' book. Delicious food, loveley atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Perhaps slightly overpriced, but overall a very enjoyable evening.

Found Bill's completely by accident shortly after moving to Brighton - been coming here regularly ever since! And it never fails to deliver, whether it is for a romantic evening (yes, tables are close together) a place to take out-of-towners, parents or meeting friends for breakfast (their eggs royal are to die for!) Bill's rarely fails to deliver - the specials are usually tasty and portions are plentiful. Service is almost always attentive no matter how busy. My mum specifically requested we'd go back to Bills on her visit this time - had the sea bass and fish pie, both were delicious and service was attentive and informative.
