Superlatives don't do justice to this amazing Sydney restaurant. It's simply brilliant, and a must do Sydney experience for fine dining in the truest sense of the phrase! Thanks again!

The staff are probably the most friendly I've seen in Sydney, and the veranda seats are absolutely breathtaking.
Hi Munashe, Thank you for providing us with the lovely feedback below - that is so wonderful to hear regarding the staff being "possibly the friendliest in Sydney" :) We look forward to welcoming you back to Catalina in the near future!

Our first visit in winter. Food was spectacular, service a bit scratchy on a busy Friday night. We love this place though.
Hi Ian, Thank you for providing us with your feedback from your dinner the other evening. Very pleased to hear that you found the food "spectacular" and we have certainly noted your comments regarding the service. Thank you once again for the "love" and we look forward to welcoming you back to Catalina soon!

Love absolutely everything about Catalina’s. Combined birthday and anniversary lunch using my birthday voucher. Both celebrations acknowledged and made to feel special. Loved our table on the deck. Hats and sunscreen available if you need. Food yummy, daily additions make choosing so difficult. Terrific wine list too. Thanks Catalina’s- see you again.

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
