From the beginning we felt like royals, the service, the wines, the oysters and the really nice dishes made the time at Catharina's fly by and worth every second.The location is worth a visit even without dining. Thank you for making our last diner in South Africa 2014 a really special one.

We spent our last night of holidays at Steenberg Estate and booked our dinner at Catharina's. The service was really good, one of the best vegetarian dishes I have ever had, the wine was superb as well as the MCC to begin with. My husband had the seafood platter which was great presentation as well as delicious and fresh. The... More

One of the best restaurants we have ever visited in the world. The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect and the location was spectacular. Our sever Danial was extremely helpful with food and wine information. WOW what a great evening meal experience. Best to make a booking to avoid disappointment.

This is a warm and comfortable restaurant. The staff were very attentive, possibly too much at times and the food was excellent. The wine list is good and with the value of the rand against the pound, it was excellent value. Will come again when next in CT.

When I booked originally no one informed me that Sunday lunch was a buffet. At R300 a head it was in my opinion a real rip off. The food was really average and the service unfriendly and in some instances downright rude. I work in the hospitality industry and normally have a lot of understanding and compassion for people who... More

The restaurant was quiet all covers were seated outside . It was a very hot day we had to ask for more shade . The food was pleasant enough perhaps not... More

40 or so noisy Americans took the edge off our enjoyment...banging doors of a thin screen wall between us did not help and the background music of a pleasantly designed restaurant such as this also detracted. The food was good and inventive and pleasantly served....wines by the glass limited to their own vineyard...which was a pity.

Situated in Steenberg Golf Estate. Beautiful rich decor with comfortable chairs, awesome attentive service and great meal. What more can one ask for at any restaurant. Wines on offer is brilliant and not overly expensive. Good choice for a special treat.

Went to the Steenberg spa and decided to try Catharina's afterwards while I was there. Restaurant was empty when I arrived but the hostess still had to consult a list to see if I could be seated. Since I hadn't made a booking this was fair enough. My particular waiter was a young man (the others seemed older). Unlike a... More
