Description: Situated on the shores of Sydney Harbour on Rose Bay, Catalina is a beautiful, airy light-filled restaurant and bar with floor to ceiling glass sliding doors opening out onto a long curved balcony over the water. In keeping with its harbourside location, the menu features beautifully fresh seafood - Sydney Rock oysters shucked to order; house smoked Tasmanian salmon; whole snapper and barramundi, filleted on the premises - but also a wide range of the best meat and poultry Australia has to offer. A fabulous Australian and global wine list (over 600 wines) and welcoming, attentive service, make this restaurant a must-do Sydney dining experience. Come in all day for the full menu - Catalina doesn't close between lunch and dinner - or graze on bar food overlooking the most beautiful harbour in the world.

This restaurant is pricey but worth it. The view, food and service were all excellent. This is an ideal location for a nice lunch or dinner out.

Went here recently for dinner with family. The food is excellent but it is still expensive for what you get. My partner had a crab linguini which I have to say you could get at a restaurant for half the price. The lamb that I had was truly delicious.
The views are lovely but I found the ambience to be a bit stuffy and though the waiters were attentive I still felt that we were a bit of a bother at times.

For good food and great views Catalina's is great, only comment would be the staff often joke around in the kitchen believing the customer can't hear them!

Overlooking the bay, the atmosphere is one of tranquility.
The wine list was extensive. The menu selection is also excellent, as there are so many wonderful dishes to choose from.
The prices are expensive, but the service, the food and the wine will be a long time memory

We really had a great time.
We started with a 15 minute flight with the seaplane over Sydney then drinks on the terrace and a 3-course dinner. Everything was fab and we enjoyed every single minute. Service was really good and the food delicious. The beef Tenderloin was the best, yummy!
