The view is fabulous, the service as well. The seafood entree platter is great, very enjoyable, the bread served was not as good as on previous occasion. The meals are quite expensive, but one is paying for the view and atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
Dear Peter, Thank you for your feedback - we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the seafood platter. Sorry to hear that the bread was not as your remembered on previous visits, the feedback has been passed onto our pastry chef. Thank you once again for taking the time to provide us with your comments, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Catalina in the near future!

Glorious location with stunning views and unfortunately for us, galeforce winds whipped up. However, we were moved (still on the terrace) to a slightly more comfortable position. Not much you can do if you enjoy sitting outside and the high winds arrive. Regardless, it was extremely pleasant and attentive service.

Very good food. Focus is on presentation and quality. I enjoyed the smoked salmon entree. However, believe that taste and flavour may have been compromised on my Glacier 51 Toothfish dish. It was nice, but I felt the flavour profile was a little bland.

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
