We were there for a wedding and had the pleasure of eating off their hors d'oeuvre menu and wedding menu. The Horse D'oeuvre were to die for. The main food was also very good despite catering for such a large group of people (around 100).

A chic yet casual looking restaurant in a quiet oasis leaves a great impression. The food is fine dining, the upmarket curry authentically spicy and hot. Service is accommodating and friendly.

I cannot speak highly enough of Catharina's. The food was exceptional and because it was a buffet I didn't need to experience the food envy that so often strikes at such good restaurants. The wines, as would be expected, were excellent to boot. The location...More
