Degustation was excellent!

We attended the lunch-time degustation just last Saturday. 2-couples. The actual restaurant was setting-up for a wedding so I can't comment on the decor. The temporary room we were dining in was pleasant but nothing special. Staff were friendly, polite & explained each of our meals. An excellent... read more

We were so lucky to find a voucher for a five course degustation at this divine restaurant. The restaurant has one Chefs Hat which is well deserved. The food was superb and my husband thought the lamb was the most delicious he had ever had, a big call as we have eaten at some fantastic places (Rockpool, Est etc) the... More

We recently went to this restaurant for a family celebration. We booked well ahead. We were a bit apprehensive about going here as we are a large family with a 6 month old in tow. We shouldn't have worried, the staff made us feel very welcome, with the high chair placed as a setting on the circular table. The staff... More

We went to the New Year's Eve 2013 Great Gatsby dinner which was a degustation course for $199 each. Also we ate next day at the hotel for lunch and I had the beef sirloin as a main. Overall, a bit disappointed from the experience as would have expected a bit more given the Southern Highlands has a good reputation... More

Our second visit to the Katers restaurant in the highlands. This is a beautiful place to enjoy lunch with some close friends. Lovely dinning setting and on this occasion a large group of coloured grass parrots watching us graze made it all the more beautiful. This being said we often feel that the service and the bread rolls or garlic... More

Hello RMB62, Thank you for sharing about your recent dining experience at Katers Restaurant. Interesting that you mention our bread rolls; this is something our chef has been looking at over the past few weeks. We will be changing these shortly to a local Robertson potato and sage bread and think this is more representative to our food concept and... More

Very poor food not much taste and not cooked as the menu describes, lovely presentation but that was the only good thing. Very overpriced for the quality. Service was good.

We purchased a living social voucher for two, five course degustations to dine at Katers the other night as we had never experienced this type of cuisine before. We were both pleasantly surprised with how nice the food and service was not to mention value for money. We will definitely return in the near future.

Not one for fancy food and this was the first hatted restaurant I've ever visited but overall I was extremely satisfied. Waiter was great in informing us about the meals and what everything was on the plate. We had the degustation which was 5 courses and it was fantastic. So many different flavours to try on each course. If you... More
