“very talented musicians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Called in here on the 11th of February with my wife...
There was about 10 jazz musicians playing and they were
truly amazing! Everybody seemed to be enjoying it tapping the table or moving their feet to the music.If you like your jazz then you will love this place.Jazz on most nights but some nights they have other types of musical bands.

All other monies raised from the door.charge go direct to the musicians so I am glad you have found them entertaining and hope your review encourages more people to come out and support the talented people on show.

“Fun music and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Stayed at the Sandringham hotel so got a free pass to CafeJAZZ. Had a great time, good meal and lots of good music. Went back for a second night a couple of days later without disappointment.

“Excellent food by an independent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Stopped for lunch here on our annual Xmas shopping trip to Cardiff. This was our first visit but I'm sure it won't be our last. Good, varied menu - I had home-made steak and ale pie which was full of tender steak and lovely gravy. My wife chose the daily special menu of salmon with butter cream sauce followed by creme caramel at a very reasonable price. All food was delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly.We will definitely return when we visit again next year!
