We stayed at the Steenberg Hotel two years ago and had a wonderful time Accordingly, on our return visit to Constantia, although we stayed at a different hotel we had to revisit the restaurant. The Head Waiter immediately recognised us and welcomed us back, as if we were long lost friends . We had a superb meal

As far as we are concerned this is a 6+ star restaurant. The staff recognised us after 2 years and welcomed us warmly. The restaurant is beautiful in a beautiful setting. The staff are beautifully trained. The tables are set with very tasteful crockery and glassware. The food is out of this world with a great choice of dishes. This... More

Spent the day at Catherina's hosting a media event. The gardens are absolutely breathtaking and the food and wine are equally heavenly. Had the sommelier pair wines to each course. He was certainly a highlight of the experience. Food, wine, service nothing short of exceptional.

Pleasant surrounding with gardens manicured to perfection and jasmine on the nose The hospitality team is attentive and engaging. We sought out difference in menu which it delivered in writing but lacked on taste. My Zebra dish for main was more memorable in the pine nuts and accompaments. The tuna and salmon tartare was okay but felt the salmon was... More

I don't usually enjoy a buffet, but I found the food here to be excellent and they did not hold back on the roast. Fantastic sitting outside in the beautiful garden. A tad pricey perhaps.

Great location with an impressive wine tasting and dining area around a water feature, very modern and sleek Great wine and food matching and although we had the promotional menu our group was not once disappointed with our choices. Excellent service levels but a pricy excursion for South African as it is clear that the restuarant are more aimed at... More

Once we were even pleasantly surprised by two owlets sitting in the tree above the entrance to the restaurant. The view is lovely, decor is simple, lovely for lunch or dinner. Have visited with friends,... More

I got the impression that Catherina's menu is about good food,seasonal and solid--unlike some of the very experimental and gimmicky offerings at other top rated Cape restaurants. Had the crustacean starter--delicious scallops but found the crumbed prawns a bit dry and bland. We had the red blend called Catherina's--was the cheapest on the menu yet we enjoyed it thoroughly. Main... More

Catching up with friends over great food was in order and Catherina's delivered on the evening. Started with drinks on the sofas by the bar whilst we waited for our friends, then over to our table which was spacious and a great waiter who was spot on with everything that evening. From our starters of prawns to my pork belly... More
