Food was marvelous and atmosphere was good for sunny day. However service was not so good, the waiter served us was not really paying attention when we ordered our drinks.
Thank you for your very kind feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your lunch, and will take your comments about your waiter to the team, so that they can improve.

Beautiful from start to finish. The new menu tastes pretty good and I'm glad the favourites are still there. That Maron tail is to die for. The oysters in red wine vinegar are a must to start any meal.

About Catalina

Sydney’s favourite venue by the water Located on the stunning harbour in Rose Bay with breathtaking views across the water, Catalina has been a Sydney icon for almost twenty years, with Michael and Judy McMahon at the helm. Catalina's fresh and authentic menus are inspired by the classics - French, Italian, Spanish and Mediterranean with Executive Chef Mark Axisa producing new dishes regularly alongside Catalina favourites. In keeping with the harbourside location, seafood is a Catalina specialty! Boasting an impressive wine and cocktail list, you can experience great food, exceptional drinks and unbeatable views in the one spot. For those looking for a more casual and affordable mode of dining, the bar food in the expanded bar area is great way to experience the beauty of Catalina and Sydney Harbour without breaking the bank The McMahon’s goal for Catalina was always simple - "to be Sydney’s favourite place to eat the best food by the water." They certainly achieved that goal. Go and experience this stunning restaurant for yourself - It really is as good as people say. Best dish: pan fried snapper, potato and garlic mash and lemon caper butter

Reviews we love



Catalina, it’s like walking in and seeing Sydney’s take on the Amalfi Coast! A beautiful, modern, minimalist restaurant located on the footstep of Sydney Harbour overlooking uninterrupted, prized views of the harbour, Shark Island & the peninsula of Point Piper. Guests seat in gorgeous surroundings to million dollar views and receive the ’essential Sydney’ experience. Function Options? Endless. Be it an uber cool Summer cocktail style soiree when the sun is beckoning, mojitos are flowing, the oyster bar is crowd drawing, canapés circulating and the band is owning the dance floor. To elegance.. A black tie Winter love affair by the fire, candlelight flickering, formal fine dining, a baby grand piano & classic Frank Sinatra. The restaurant is perfect for cocktail parties, PR Launches, corporate functions & small groups. The cuisine at Catalina is modern Australian. While there is a strong emphasis on fish and shellfish, it is much more than a seafood restaurant! For weddings we can host ceremonies on site and offer a travelling entrée or dessert course, cocktail station, dessert degustation table and oyster bar. We cater for the large & luxurious functions to the small intimate parties & everything in between.
