We enjoyed our visit, food and service was good. Two comments; the wood fired bread was supposed to be served with oil and salt and we had neither, and our bottle of wine was not put in a wine cooler

Firstly, the good. The food is fantastic! Ordered the gnocchi ragu and the seafood linguini… so delicious! The wine selection was also excellent. And the desserts… oh my… sticky date pudding and baked cheesecake were amazing. The waiter was friendly and attentive and super polite. But that’s where the good stopped. Dining area was noisy even with only a few tables seated. Hard floors, hard tables, hard chairs and windows. No soft furnishings or plants makes the place very noisy. I guess it’s ok if you don’t want to hear each other during dinner. Next, the rush! We booked for 7:30PM on a Tuesday night. No kids so we thought we’d support a local business. Food came out quickly which was good, but halfway through our meal we were asked if we wanted dessert. I told them probably, but can we finish our meal first? Apparently, the kitchen was closing so we had to decide then. It was only 8PM. The website says it’s open until 11PM. I understand it’s only Tuesday night, but you have a customer sitting and eating, don’t try so hard to get rid of them. So we order the dessert and from then on the waiter kept buzzing around us to see if we were finished so he could bring the desserts. Even came up to us at one point to tell us “no hurry but when you want dessert just get my attention”. I asked him if we were allowed to finish our main first. He said of course, but kept hanging around and removing glasses and cutlery as soon as they were done. Finally we finished our meal and the dessert was on the table with 30 seconds. We just ate it quickly, paid and left which is clearly what the wanted us to do. Two courses and drinks done and dusted within an hour and out the door! What a shame, because the food was really great! If they had just chilled a bit, we may have ordered another couple of drinks and a coffee, and told everyone how awesome it was, but unfortunately the quality of the food is a distant memory as we deal with indigestion from being rushed out the door so fast. And finally, the menu shown on the website is completely different to what they have. So in summary, Catalina Kitchen is a great place to go if you want to eat good food in a rush while guessing what they have to offer and not talk to your fellow diners. But the food did taste great! So we’ll done on that!

Food was amazing and really fresh. Also reasonable priced. The aperol spritz was a bit disappointing but I’ll go back for the food next time

Food was good overall. Service was decent. Outdoor seating was ok but could be improved, there wasn't really much of an atmosphere
