Known for her love of adding a touch of Asian flair to her food, Chef Kerry has stepped up her sense of adventure a notch or two by delighting Catharina’s lunch and dinner guests with complimentary mystery tastes. Expect bursts of citrus flavours from the orient such as kalamansi or yuzu; or experience how Chef Kerry spices things up with unusual Middle Eastern and North African elements such as sumac, ras el hanout and zataar. Other unfamiliar tastes waiting to be discovered on a visit to Catharina’s include samphire, a succulent marine vegetable; the berry-like superfood, sea buckthorn; or the indigenous South African num num, also known as the Natal plum. These enticing surprises in the form of a complimentary cocktail on arrival, an amuse bouche or truffle will change weekly until the end of April.

Catharina’s also offers an array of fabulous cocktails to be enjoyed at the bar, on the tranquil terrace, or at your table. Serving two cocktails for the price of one between 16h00 and 18h00, it’s the perfect spot for after work cocktail hour. Think trendy Aperol spritz, strawberry or pineapple daiquiri, bubbly cocktails, or the signature Catharina’s side car with an elderflower twirl to name a few. The daiquiri and side car are also available as virgin cocktails.

As Steenberg executive chef, Kerry is at the helm of the two signature eateries on this landmark Constantia farm, appealing to all tastes from contemporary dining at Catharina’s Restaurant to bistro-style fare and tapas at the popular Bistro Sixteen82. Since taking over the reins at Catharina’s in December last year, Chef Kerry has added her personal touch to a host of new summer dishes on the à la carte menu.  She describes her food as “contemporary classics with a twist” bursting with fresh seasonal flavours and is constantly exploring new ingredients, flavours and taste experiences discovered on trips abroad.

For starters there is a choice between ham hock tortellini, marinated artichoke salad, hand cut beef tartare and her favourite, the Cajun calamari with asparagus, chard, lime and miso. Sous vide pork belly, grilled beef fillet and sirloin steaks are up for mains. There is plenty on offer in the dessert line-up to indulge your sweet tooth from lime vanilla panna cotta and spiced pumpkin crème brûlée to lighter options such as seasonal sorbets. Catharina’s also welcomes vegetarians with a dedicated menu.

You’ll feel right at home while exploring these alluring menu options all summer long. Catharina’s tranquil terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco meals in dappled shade with a glass or two of fine Steenberg bubbly or Sauvignon Blanc.
