Such a lovely little place with such a lovely atmosphere. Food was amazing and the waitress was brilliant. Nothing seemed like it was too much trouble. Perfection.

I posted the review below on Trip Advisor today under the name Eden101 I cannot believe that the food was so delicious it actually distracted me from the amazing and incredibly rare view you have from this casually understated restaurant. The eating area actually protrudes onto the beach, beyond any other structure giving 270 degrees of vista. I took my Mother and Father there on her 80th birthday because she had gone once before and when I gave her the choice of any available restaurant in the Southend area Billy Hundreds was suggested almost before I had finished asking her. It turned out she had gone to a hen night there some months before and had a thoroughly excellent time. I mentioned in the notes on the booking form that though a little shy I would appreciate it if there was some way they could make her feel a bit more special than a walk-in. On arrival, while my brain was still too stunned by the view to pay attention to anything else, a bottle of Prosecco already on ice with a carefully worded handwritten napkin on the side respectfully celebrating her special day had been given to my Mother. We ordered most of their fish menu (trying to avoid anything that sounded too filling as the descriptions of the beautifully prepared concoctions made carbohydrates seem a waste of precious tummy space). If you were to bother to read any of the other reviews I have published on trip advisor you would note I am not exactly ’nice’ I believe myself a good cook and are not just critical but enjoy explaining why it was wrong with non-vulgar but very wounding metaphors. On this visit to Billy Hundreds, I am bereft of all abilities save to say everything - yes everything, was as Mary Poppins as a restaurant could get. Practically perfect in every way. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it turns out we were lucky to get a table, so book! The staff must know how lovely they are because when they go out to eat I bet they notice the difference that some eateries think acceptable. The price in no way reflected the fantastic quality of the food and I wish I hadn’t had breakfast because we hardly ordered from their meat dishes but at least I have a treat for next time because I will be back. I also suggest that if you don’t go soon a friend of yours will and find out first and once that has happened, it will forever be that wonderful restaurant that THEY found and you will have no choice but to be grateful. Thank you to the excellent Team at Billy Hundreds you made a special day fantastic. If I didn’t live in London my regularity at your restaurant would cause us to be on first name terms. Please try not to change too much.

Our first visit and it was a delight, it was dark outside,January, but inside we could have been in any wonderful beach side restaurant. The food was great (tapas) and the service was extremely good, attentive and an utter delight. A little gem in Southend, we will definitely be returning, but please keep that to yourself 😉 😆

We were absolutely appreciative of the service, especially. Bit packed but that only confirms the popularity of this restaurant. Looking forward to the Summer and sitting, virtually, on the beach.

Great place with adorable rustic decor. Service extremely peasant, friendly and professional. If I were pushed to gripe on something and I know that 'profit' isn't a dirty word, but i would have to say that some of the tapas dishes aren't realistically priced. Great place though, will be back.

An evening to repeat! We were pleasantly pleased with this little restaurant on the seafront, it is December and cold. Despite this the music, atmosphere, food and amazing food, made this a night to remember. Definitely worth another visit.🙂
