Food was only warm, felt like a service station restaurant. Quality of food was good, but value for Money, very poor £5.99 for a meal on a small plate, expensive when compared to many other places. Also had my granddaughter with me and was a able to use the changing facilities for her nappy as I was man and their are only in the ladies! Avoid this lace if you are a man and have children.

We ate breakfast here. All the food is served buffet style. You choose your food, you queue & you pay.
By the time you get to your table the food is cold.
The service was appalling as all the servers were Eastern Europeans with poor english which was why everyone queues for so long.
2 breakfasts cost £9. You get what you pay for.
Wont be back. Ever.

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

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.
