Wonderful dining experience at Catalina. Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. As for the view, well, Rose Bay speaks for itself - spectacular. My only reservation is that it is quite expensive relative to similar restaurants. But, location is key here and it is very much an institution in the area, such that the overall experience is the highlight.
Dear Hean, Thank you taking the time to provide us with your feedback - lovely to hear that you found the food and service excellent! We hope to welcome you back to Catalina in the near future!

Stands the test of time. Although the Friday lunch crowd can be a little bit real housewives of Sydney!
Dear Charles, Thank you for your feedback, and yes, Friday lunches are very lively! We look forward to welcoming you back to Catalina in the near future.

Catalina continues to be one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. Service is impeccable and the food amazing. I love the buzz of this place with it's unique ambiance and interesting people. Each time I go I remind myself that I must visit more often. The birthday voucher each year is a real treat and I look forward to the next one!
Dear Helen, Thank you for your wonderful feedback. Yes the dining room is very buzzy on a busy day and I may be biased, but it's got to be one of Sydney's prettiest waterside dining rooms around :) Thank you once again for dining with us, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Catalina in the near future!

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
