Catharina’s Executive Chef, Archie Maclean, has created a special lunch menu that fits the bill perfectly for easy, relaxed lunches in Steenberg’s idyllic Cape Dutch surroundings.


One of the jewels on the Constantia wine route, Catharina’s now offers a two or three course lunch alternative to the full à la carte and tasting menus.


For starters there is a choice between mushroom and pecorino risotto, or a confit chicken Caesar salad. A hearty seafood linguini or juicy sirloin steak are up next for mains. 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, this is the ideal lunch menu to enjoy 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.


Catharina’s Restaurant is open 7-days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For bookings contact +27 (0)21 7137178 or email  For more information visit and follow @CatharinasR on Twitter or Steenberg on Instagram and Facebook.
