This was my first visit to CafeJazz. The meal was excellent as was the service. The staff came around and made sure everything was alright and didn't rush you between courses. We were partly there to listen to the jazz and found that a majority of the people who were there had only come to listen to the jazz. There... More

Thank you Michael for your lovely review. I am really pleased you have enjoyed your visit to us. The gentleman introducing the music was part of the band set up so was not directly part of my staff. However it is good feedback and something we must consider to make sure the whole evening runs professionally. Hopefully we shall welcome... More

Im quite well known for my search for good food and by chance I popped into the CAFE JAZz on Friday Nov 7th. First problem I had was the text on the menu was too small for me without my glasses so I asked the help of the bar whilst ordering a beer. I was told they had a special... More

Fantastic. Thank you so much for your review. It is really great to hear of someone who goes in search of good food rather than just be safe and eat in the branded restaurants. The head chef is French and his signature dessert is the Bread Pudding. I actually get customers who come in to buy some to take home... More

Just returned from a weekend in Cardiff and dined here twice. The food was great and nicely presented. We were well looked after by Luke and Alex who were courteous and friendly. The cafe is also a great live music venue from late evening. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

I am so sorry Chris to read of your bad experience. We are really highly rated on service so it is very disappointing that this was the problem on the night you visited. I am aware of the night in question and you are right we were understaffed. This was caused by a confusion by some staff with the rota.... More
