Great music and food!

Went on a Tuesday for a meal and stayed to listen to the music. The three courses for £14.99 was a great deal and the food was really tasty and fresh. The service was also really good. The downside was the wine. I didn't want to buy a bottle so could only choose from the house wine if I wanted... read more

My friend & i like to try new restaurants-this being our first visit-def not our last!! We had purchased an Amazon Local offer i.e 2 courses (from a la carte menu) together with a drink. From an extensive menu we chose Chicken... More

Really well situated, there is an indoor and outdoors area to sit and eat, Great food and music, well worth visit. Brilliant. If you are staying in the Sandringham hotel next door, you get a discount. The food is really reasonable too, Great place to be

Our first time at Jazz Cafe for evening meal. We had delicious Welsh food. David looked after us and was very friendly, chatting after our meal. Music was great too! Good traditional jazz playing in the background. Very enjoyable.

Went on a Sunday lunchtime, the main menu was available as well as traditional Sunday lunch. Both were excellent. Great service too, thanks Hywel. Very reasonable prices for home cooked quality food.

What an amazing meal, great bar staff in Amy and Nat, and really attentive staff in David and H. Food was great, service was even better, nothing can even compare to the tiramisu. Thanks to all the staff. See you soon

Upon arriving, we were treated to a varied menu and great sounding dishes. I chose a Brie and Aubergine Panini served with chips and a salad. It was quite tasty, and the others at my table had fish and chips, and they found it prepared superbly.

We visited cafe jazz for some lunch before checking into our hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The actual interior is quite minimal and the menu was quite uninspiring and mismatched, serving everything from omelette to sweet and sour chicken. I feel that the restaurant would benefit from a menu overhaul as at the moment it seems to be weekly family... More

Thank you Hayley for your five star review. I am very glad that you have enjoyed your visit to us and hopefully to Cardiff.
