We love this place as it close to us and on the broadwater.
Loved this place, wonderful views, service great, food terrific ……why do people brings dogs to cafes ?
Delicious lunch, Jamaican Burger and Prawn wontons, were scrumptious, and we decided we had room for dessert, Sticky date doughnuts and the Panna Cotta, did not disappoint. Great service, highly recommend.
A must-visit for breakfast or lunch when visiting the Gold Coast. The atmosphere is relaxed and together with the amazing views of the Broadwater, I cannot recommend this cafe enough!
New Years Eve, set menu.
Made an online booking, request a table close to the Broadwater. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant. It would have been nice to know up front that there were no table closer to the Broadwater before arriving.
The food was nice and tasty. The weakest meal was the pork belly which was chewy.
Overall a good night.
Catalinas were exceptional hosts New Years Eve. Perfect location, food, and service. Outstanding service in fact. Best experience we’ve had for some time. Thank you Catalina.
The food was great but the service was not. We stood at the “wait here to be seated” sign for ages before someone finally noticed us. The same happened to order our meals, we had to intercept a staff member. The staff were friendly when they did materialise but that was only after long waits.
Great food! Lovely and prompt service. Great view as well. Central location with plenty of parking available.
Booked last minute for a table of seven food was quick as we were all hungry and service was great.
Beautiful location, great service and delicious food! Highly recommend!
Really delicious food and excellent service. A beautiful place to sit with views of the broadwater.
Food, service and location was excellent, as always! Love this spot
Great location and food. The music was loud and drowned out table conversation but great table service made a difference.
We had a lovely lunch and a lot of fun. Cocktails were delicious and so was the food. Thank you.
A great location, but the food is considerably overpriced. It took over an hour before our lunch meals came out even though the restaurant was not full.
Always a lovely spot atmosphere wise. Lots of diners with very well behaved dogs too. Excellent and friendly service, after an initial longish wait to be seated. The food was delicious but costly, which I guess reflects the setting. Potential diners remember you must pay for parking too. A perfect location for a special occasion, and as mentioned delightfully dog friendly too.
My fav Brekky place although the lunch is fab too - the scallops and king prawn linguine are ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Very enjoyable lunch and excellent unobtrusive service.
Great location, prompt efficient and friendly service. Excellent quality food.
The services was slower than usual on this occasion.
Otherwise staff were friendly as usuall
The jazz band was great. I thought the food wasn’t that good for the price . I had a trout salad which was wry average in taste, size and overall presentation
The venue is a great spot.
We took 20 people there for lunch the service staff were good
The prices were high and based on the lunchtime and dinner menu. Great to see that the food is local and sustainably sourced. Ocean trout salad was very nice. The view and ambience lovely. Staff amazing.
Great service, friendly staff, tasty food. Lovely venue beside the water.
Had a wonderful time! Food, service, view and cost were excellent! Will definitely be going back with friends in the future! Do yourself a favour and get a real feel of the GC!
My Linguine was exceptional ! My guests also praised their food.
Incredible service, incredible food, incredible cocktails all with a beautiful view
Staff were lovely and friendly, food was good and portion size perfect. Price was a little on the expensive side. Loved that they allow dogs into the restaurant! will return.
Food was delicious. Fresh and full of flavor with views out to the water
Service was not great. They must have run out of Turkish bread, however, we were not advised of this. Instead of getting eggs benedict on Turkish bread it was essentially bacon and eggs on sour dough.
Great service and food was delicious. Beautiful outlook.
The view was lovely. I’ve had breakfast there before and enjoyed it. I took my dad there for his birthday. The chicken salad was not nice. Even my 88 year old dad made a comment about the meal not being up to standard. There are a few local cafes which do quality food for a slightly cheaper price.
Great venue for breakfast. Beautiful views over the broadwater, great food and friendly helpful staff.
Top notch experience. Interesting menu, food was delicious. Great outlook. We will be back!
Beautiful location and great food. We had a lovely afternoon at Cafe Catalina.
Perfect in every way..................................
Wonderful location, food, service and entertainment.
Everything was excellent. My only comment the coffees were only warm, hot.
More selection for lunch didn’t have any fish and chips or seniors meals very expensive for steak but good coffee good drink selection but a bit pricey for a cafe
Been to Catalinas so many times but this time the waiter was not at all friendly, rather he was abrupt. Didn’t give us time to decide and seemed put out that we didn’t order a drink. The food was ok but really is expensive for what you get. Coffee was not good. Sad to see it go downhill.
