If you want to slip away from the office and enjoy a laid back lunch with idyllic views without breaking your budget, then look no further. Catharina’s Restaurant at the Steenberg Vineyards offers just that.
The new laid back lunch option, created by Executive Chef Archie Maclean, fits the bill perfectly for easy, relaxed lunches in Steenberg’s idyllic Cape Dutch surroundings. Catharina’s, which many regard as one of the jewels on the Constantia Wine Route, now offers a two or three course lunch, an alternative to their full à la carte and tasting menus.
For starters there is a choice between mushroom and pecorino risotto, or a confit chicken Caesar salad.
For the main course there is a choice between a hearty seafood linguini or juicy sirloin steak.
And dessert lovers can hark back to the intrepid days of Catharina’s Ras, Steenberg’s 17th century founder, while tucking into rooibos crème brûlée and frozen melktert, or opt for lighter refreshment with a selection of three seasonal sorbets.
Priced at R165 for the two course menu and R195 for three courses, the lunch menu can be enjoyed either al fresco under majestic oak trees or while soaking up Catharina’s nostalgia inside the restaurant.
With Steenberg’s excellent selection of bubblies, Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé, there is ample choice for the perfect lunch time wine to enjoy with your meal.
The Restaurant is open 7-days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
