Had Sunday lunch here with a group of friends. I was grateful for the lovely fire in the bar where we had aperatifs. Friendly staff welcomed us into the dining area, our large group accommodated easily. From entré to dessert and coffee the food was delicious. The wine excellent and to add an extra touch a group playing and singing... More

Situated on a wine estate and with the next door hotel, a view over most of what you want to have a view over, this is worth trying out. Elegant, yet not too fancy for comfort, and friendly staff makes the experience a good one to add. The menu is just enough to chose from, with a light variety and... More

So we ventured out for some wine-tasting and tapas. To start off, if you happen to be in a group of more than 10 people the wine-tasting suddenly goes from R25 to R80 per person. So we divided ourselves up and some skipped wine-tasting altogether. The restaurant insisted we pre-order a large amount of tapas. What if we wanted more... More

The restaurant has a lovely ambiance the fire places were lit and thankfully the tables are well spaced apart so as not to be bothered by other diners conversations. All... More

We had 2 dinners here. We had only planned 1, but after we canceled another place we thought this spot was good enough to eat at again (2 nights in a row). The first night they had forgotten to give us bread which I brought to their attention at the end of the meal. The next night they brought it... More

I have always enjoyed visiting Catharina's, but my memories are that it was a bit cramped and stuffy. Not now. Go in through double glass doors and ahead is a great window light, almost cathedral style but more welcoming. Next to that is the Conservatory (revamped a few years ago) with a high wall of glass through which you see... More

The service, the staff and the breakfast was excellent. Good value for money as well. Good Management, and setting typical Cape Wine farm, and architecture and décor of restaurant extremely unique and special.
