“Over priced coffee!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

$5.40 for a small double shot mocha.
I also had a pie several weeks ago. Cost about $5 from memory. Microwaved not oven heated. Pretty poor..it's a real shame considering the lack of competition in the area. They should be capitalizing on the premium location. It is a lovely spot.

“Certainly not up to PAR with other cafes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

The Fairview Nineteenth restaurant and bar is situated in the recently redeveloped, rebranded Fairview Country Club. As such it serves the needs of the golfing members, the general public and a number of local organisations.

The actual cafe is delightful with a light attractive decor and a setting looking out over the golf course but unfortunately that’s where it ENDS!

We were there for lunch and although there was only a limited number of other clients the service was very slow. So much so that we thought that our lunch orders had been forgotten and had to ask just how much longer they were going to take.

When the coffee did appear it was cold and weak – maybe the worst cafe coffee I have had for years!

The food, a couple of savoury tarts, had been overcooked and poorly heated while the presentation lack any real accompaniments – even a little green salad would have lifted the plate.

The score card for the Nineteenth Cafe - Restaurant - Bar reads:”Must try harder as there were too make par for the course!”

“Good Food, Good Service, Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We've stopped in there a few times on our way through to Tauranga from Auckland. The service is always friendly and inviting.

The counter food is really nice - cater for Gluten free requests, add a salad to make it really good. The Coffee is excellent. You can sit outside if the weather's good or still enjoy views over the golf course from inside.

The restaurant is attached to the country club but has a nice sunny feel to it as is well worth a visit. It's only a few hundred metres off the main road and has easy access and loads of parking.
