Stopped at Bills for lunch whilst passing through en route to the Hunter Valley. An interesting cafe/restaurant and our group dined at a large community style bench table in what was an almost full restaurant. The two ladies in our group had the corn fritters which they described as being delicious. The same could be said of my ragu pasta... More

I took Uber to have ricotta pancake and it was not as good as I was told. It's bit too thick for me.

Imagine: sitting in the sunshine, drinking tea, eating delicious breakfast and watching the world go by. This is Bills. I met a friend there, who was also visiting Australia and it was easy to find and very easy to choose something to eat! Fantastic breakfast!

Unlike other cafes in Surry Hills, this one was spacious, bright, and airy. The staff were friendly and efficient, and seated me though my husband wasn't with me when the table was ready (some restaurants in Toronto won't seat you until your entire party is present). I arrived close to noon on Sunday and was expecting the lunch menu. Instead... More

My fiancée and I had a lovely Sunday morning breakfast at Bills, although initially told we would have a 25 minute wait for a table, we were seated within 5-10 minutes. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, this provided a great relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. The food and drinks were fresh and of very high... More

I should start by saying I went to Bills with very high expectations. The food was nice, well cooked. I had a chicken salad type thing, my partner had a burger. However it didn't really blow me away. Staff were friendly.

We ate here on a Saturday evening for the first time, and given the status and reputation had expectations that were definitely not met. The wait staff were very courteous and helpful, but the rest of our dining experience left much to be desired. We were given a wine list that was surprisingly limited, only to be told that the...

This is by far one of the greatest brunch/ breakfast spot! The ricotta pancakes are a must have. Never had anything like them before!

Description
Bills Surry Hills opened under the hotel on Crown Street in 1996. A great spot - since then, Surry Hills has transformed itself from a quiet rag-trade area of Sydney to the centre of the city's media and arts communities and its restaurant hot-spot. The open kitchen at bills Surry Hills is lively and fun all day: locals pick up their coffee or fresh juice on the way to work; friends chat over brunch; business lunches are held next to prams, backpacks and the occasional celebrity; and neighbourhood families drop in for an easy dinner.
