Catalina Restaurant

A restaurant experience like no other

Catalina is one of Australia's great destination restaurants situated on a landmark Rose Bay site on Sydney Harbour's eastern foreshore. The restaurant was designed as a homage to the beauty of Sydney Harbour. Diners have a panoramic view of Sydney Harbour at water-level, punctuated only by the comings and goings of a working harbour: ferries, water taxis, fishing and sailing boats, and incoming sea planes based in front of the restaurant.

Experienced restaurateurs Michael and Judy McMahon opened Catalina in 1994 with a simple goal: to be Sydney's favourite place to eat the best by the water. They are joined by their daughter Kate as Floor Manager who keeps a well-honed eye on all aspects of the restaurant's operations: the food, wine, service and ambience.

Catalina's kitchen remains open continuously from midday to late in the evening. Diners are welcome to dine all day on Mark Axisa's fresh, authentic menus, inspired by the classics - French, Italian, Spanish and Mediterranean. Seafood is a Catalina specialty: oysters are shucked to order; salmon is cured and smoked in-house; and long-standing relationships with Sydney's leading suppliers provide the restaurant with the best line-caught fish. Meat eaters are also well catered for.
