Excellent cuisine with a superb wine list. Had the Prawn and Salmon starter which was rather delicious. Main course I settled for the Lamb Rack which was prepared to perfection.

Stopped her on our way out of Cape Town to the airport for lunch. The setting is beautiful and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather, the grounds, and the surrounding mountains. Food was great and well priced as was the wine.

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.
