Catharina's Restaurant at Steenberg pays homage to the woman who started it all and found Steenberg in the 17th century. Taking a leaf from Catharina's adventurous book, this restaurant serves up contemporary comfort food, making guests feel welcomed as they revel in the abundance of fresh produce, cooked simply and presented beautifully. With an eye on creating a "Contemporary Heritage", Catharina's embraces the past but keeps evolving with the current to maintain a fresh and innovative attitude.The menu centres on simplicity, and lets the finest quality ingredients do all the talking. The "contemporary heritage" dictum comes to life in the décor of Catharina's Restaurant, as hints of Catharina's thrilling life weave themselves into a visual narrative - a treat for the eyes as well as the stomach. Comprising of over 100 carefully selected South African wines and a small but relevant international offering, the award-winning wine list at Catharina's restaurant offers choice to the connoisseur and casual sipper alike. Catharina's has been awarded the American Express Platinum Award for Fine Dining, and the Diner's Club Winelist Award - Diamond Awards.
