I booked this restaurant based on the reviews on this site but I would like to know how our experience was so different, to the point where it was probably the worst restaurant I have ever visited!! I booked specifically for the jazz band however when we arrived I was informed that there was no band on a Saturday night,... More

Had a fantastic evening. Great atmosphere and Dominic the new waiter and David couldn't have been more hospitable. Much friendlier than Carl who used to work there. If anyone finds my watch then please let me know!

Attended CafeJazz on a week night. The entertainment was lovely and we enjoyed the wonderful food and drink on offer. It was service with a smile and both David and Dominique ensured every need was met and was to our liking. Will definitely attend again

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... 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.
