Catalina has been a fixture of Sydney’s dining scene for a long time, and has managed to maintain its standards while still surprising with the menu. The restaurant has incredible views over Rose Bay, and is an ideal place for either lunch or dinner. Enjoying...More

I had been waiting for such a long time to visit mostly because it’s far from where I live but since I was staying at the nearby intercontinental double bay, it was a good opportunity to tick this one off my list. This restaurant certainly...More

Heard about this restaurant we decided to go with the family. Even it was Monday it was full. Service good, friendly. Famous for seafood we had the oysters, barramundi and scallops. Tasty but overpriced! Wine list massive. Something unacceptable: frozen chips!!!!

I would have thought yes, and if wine is involved, I would suggest over $350 for 2!

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.
