Family meal

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime for a family gathering of about 30 of us. We had a set menu and we had preordered our three course lunch. This was served in good time so everybody was eating at the same time. Relaxed atmosphere and not rushed.

A high-quality eating place in the centre of this delightful and peaceful town, a stone's throw from the seafront. The service was polite, speedy and friendly. The printed menu had some shortcomings though. It gave little indication of the variety of drinks available and the 'Catch of the Day' fish and chips - normally the flagship dish in this sort...

Never been to Frinton before, so stumbled upon Cafe 19, and on a sunny day with the doors open, it was a great venue. Staff were polite and quick-ish to seat us. Once we had ordered and our food arrived it was really lovely and great value, but the service team missed too many tricks and upselling opportunities. 1) No... More

Much as I appreciate child labour for waitresses the trend for sass & attitude just translates as rude in my book.Its like being stuck in a lift with crap music.We had catch of the day which was the ponsiest.fish and chips ever. Avoid its rubbish and pricey

A nice selection on the menu covering all tastes from a main meal to a light lunch. We ordered from the 2 course menu and had linguine special and chocolate fudge brownie. The... More

We visit regularly with our dog and meet our fellow dog walkers for a coffee on the terrace. We've also eaten here of an evening and I can safely say that I had one of the best steaks ever. Thanks Andrew and team.

Food is excellent, staff very friendly and extremely helpful and restaurant very clean. If you like and want excellent fish and chips this is the best place to go but their menu and talents go way beyond just fish and chips, you must try their excellent food, they obviously have a great chef. We have added Cafe 19 to our... More
