Food was very good. Service was a little slow at times but all staff lovely.
Good and drinks were great such a relaxing afternoon...Loved the live music too
Lunch was lovely, staff were great but we seemed to get our meal after everyone else, it was a little slow for the main otherwise ok
We ordered hot drinks before we ordered our breakfast so we could sit a bit before eating and waited ages for them so our meals came out right after our hot drinks. But this was the only down full. Also would be nice if they offered smaller portions
Overall, I found the menu wasn’t very appealing. I understand that it is a condensed menu but there wasn’t much on the menu that I liked. Having said that, what I chose I enjoyed.
Always great food & service. Atmosphere & outlook amazing. Our regular breakfast spot.
Would definitely return again. Love the food. Knowledgeable, friendly waitress, and fast service. Great spot beautiful outlook
Excellent service. Casual dining experience with quality food. Nice, varied menu. Licenced. You can bring your pooch along too.
Great service, atmosphere and lovely staff every time 😊
Delicious food, great location & awesome service. Was a bit chilly at times when the outdoor heaters were switched off, but then we were in a semi outdoor venue in the middle of winter 😂 Can't recommend this place highly enough, love, love, love it!!! 🥰🥰🥰
Good food, good coffee at reasonable prices. We would go again for breakfast.
Great food and wonderful service . Very friendly and cheerful staff . Will definitely be back .
The service was slow and food arrived sometime apart. Food is average for the prices being charged, nothing special.. it was ok overall.
The food was great. We had the Eggs Benny and Catalina big brekky. Tasted great and presentation was just as good. The ambience had such a great vibe and the service was amazing. The staff were so friendly and made the experience wonderful. I would definitely go back time and time again.
All staff were superb & very competent, nothing was problem. We took our dog & he was looked after just as well!
Would recommend to anyone
Rarely do I give 5 Stars but really, Catalina deserves the recognition for no fuss quick service, a really interesting menu and always a good special. I highly recommend the Seafood Pasta and the Dumplings.
This is such a lovely spot with fantastic service and great atmosphere!!! I love visiting Catalina's. Breakfast is one of my favourite times as the food is great and watching the morning sun is lovely. I would definitely recommend to friends:)
Relax water view ,great service and delicious food.
COVID 19 hygiene spot on
It is my local favourite place
I have enjoyed many meals and coffee at Catalina Cafe, today was the first time I found my breakfast to lack flavour, however it was quite fresh. Presentation was average, I'll definitely come back but hope that my next meal will be another stand out one as before
Great spot to eat breakfast. Delicious and reasonably priced menu selection. Friendly & efficient staff.
Very disappointed in our food order half was left on the plate as we were advised that we could not order one egg each poached the chef could only do two at a time . This was told to us by the waitress . Yes we were confused by this . I did ring and discuss this with the Cafe Later after I left as I didn’t want to have the conversation in front of the guest I had with me for our meeting was delicate.
The reason From the cafe was due to the pandemic we had to order a minimum amount this was not explained to us in the multiple confirmation text and emails . We would of gladly just paid the extra instead of been told the chef could only provide eggs in multiples of two.
I was told to stay open they needed to make a quota per table which as 20 per person which they would have as our meal came to the mid 50s with drinks so even if you took the extra they made us order we still would’ve made quota.
The food ok , coffee mug was tiny . I know it’s important to support businesses in times like this and was told that if I had come the next day the chef could if made us one egg each . As the restrictions would be easing. That’s the basics of this low rating more to the story.
Wow! What a special spot to dine. Lovely friendly staff and magnificent food and service.
Food was devine. Service amazing. Thank you! Seated outside. It was a cold rainy day and a little warmth, background music, ambience, would have been a lovely addition in the big open area.
Staff very friendly and efficient - remember previous visits
Responsible behavior in COVID times
Service was friendly, helpful and efficient. Food was excellent and timely. Looking forward to eating there again.
Delicious food, great location and friendly staff; nothing is too much trouble.
The crispy fish and prawn dumplings are amazing and highly recommended.
It was a little cold when we visited some of those patio heaters would work a treat.
I will most definitely be coming back!
Always enjoyable. Food atmosphere & service always great.
Great place to eat, extra special as we could take
Great venue. Easy parking and pleasant surrounds. Have been there numerous times and plan to return
Absolutely outstanding. A hidden secret at the northern end of the coast.
Great service, attended to celebrate my brothers birthday with a breakfast - found us a more suitable table as soon as we walked in and offered great service the whole time.
Unfortunately the food that arrived was not exactly as we ordered, not that it mattered but after we were offered up the item that was incorrect. Nice spot but nothing special
Great Dog friendly restruant. Staff are very welcoming even to our furbaby. Highly recommended if your pooch is well behaved in public.
Absolutely delicious food, fantastic service and fabulous view! Nothing more to say 👍👍👍
Has a good location in the Broadwater park lands with outlook over the Broadwater. Food is of good quality and service is good. Service suffers when busy so I recommend avoiding Sunday and Saturday unless you get there early.
Unfortunately if Cafe Catalina continue with their high pricing, they will struggle.....the prices are comparable with some of the top restaurants on the Coast.....the staff are a little green....reaching across a person to get to the plate of another person sitting next to them....is definitely not kosher..... the people I was with, all said they wouldn't rush back there.....
Best food on the Gold Coast. The staff are great, too.
The food was up to it’s usual high standard and presented well. We were seated near a large group who were conducting speeches which made it very loud for those of us not in their party. They should have beee placed down the other end, but there was another party in down there. As it is the season for celebration, we shall not let it deter us. There were some mishaps with our order, but the staff were very obliging and apologetic so all turned out well in the night.
Good atmosphere. Food was good to very good. The steak was nicely cooked however flavour was missing.
The scallops were amazing! What a way to start our meal. Enjoyed all of our dishes in a gorgeous setting overlooking the Broadwater. The staff were attentive and friendly. Definitely recommend and we will be back.
