    Having been to Catalina kitchen multiple times previously I thought it was time to go back. From the moment we walked in the door the service lacked the young girl behind the counter pointed us to our table and we were left to fend for ourselves. After we ordered our drinks a Long Island and a lemon lime and bitters understanding they make take a lil time to make it took much longer for the lemon lime and bitters to come out. The waitress came over and asked if we would like to order starters which I requested her to confirm the dips which she did, when she came back over to advise of the dips she rushed to tell me and ran off again before we could even agree to ordering them. Then for a further 10 minutes we watched the two girls walking around making coffees and drinks for other staff members. At this point I called out to request that we could order our food that we’d be waiting for. (Keeping at mind we arrived at 5.30PM and there were only 3 tables to be served at this time. Overall the service was very poor. Props to the chefs the food was great. The service on this occasion was a disappointment, I think I will be sticking to the lovely service that the last piece provide at Waverley Park, maybe some staff should come across and show those in Wantirnia how it’s done.

    Bruschetta was like a pizza so it was more like a main. It was a bit cold on the premises. Very attentive staff.

    We have made a complaint to the supervisor that the sundried tomato in the 2 pasta dishes tasted stale. He was happy for us to replace these dishes with something else but we had to pay for 1 of the stale dishes even though we will not continue eating them. I’d glad we asked if we will be charged because he did not openly disclose this to us. He did in the end, voided the fee. Prawn pasta was flavourless and we were extremely thirsty after having the pizzas.

    They have a 5% off dinner sign on each table if you google review the resturant.. pretty misleading once we got there and we had to ask for the waiter to come over everytime we needed something instead of them coming to us and the food was mediocre.. I'm sorryy, I wish it was amazballs.
