After visiting CafeJAZZ for the second time today, I decided it was time I shared my opinion with a wider audience than just my Facebook friends. CafeJAZZ is by far the best place I have eaten.

Thank you for your review I am very sorry that you have not enjoyed your visit. The toilets are checked hourly but it is a busy night so I apologise that they were not satisfactory at the time.

We visited on Thursday with a group of friends . Some had the £14.95 meal deal ,some had the a la carte , we all enjoyed the freshly cooked meals, it was great value. Even though it was quite busy , David the waiter did a fantastic job and didn't keep us waiting for anything. Will visit again .
