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

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

This restaurant was chosen as it has a private room for special occasions. Ours was a 90th birthday dinner. The servers are to be commended for their constant attention. We started with drinks in the adjacent bar - the hanging origami birds are a delight. Interior decoration very modern. We had a pared down menu for the occasion and asked... More

We had a special occasion to celebrate (which was mentioned at the time of booking) and could not have chosen a better setting. From the service to the choice of wines and food, we had a most wonderful evening. We all had 3 courses and every dish was an explosion of tastes. The evening was topped off with a special... More

I have to say that the staff here were without exception some of the best I have had met in one of my favourite countries in the world. They were fun, friendly knowledgeable and so very kind. Thank you for looking after us so well each evening we ate with you. I also must mention the breakfasts which were as... More
