I absolutely love the Calypso Catch. It's as if the seafood went from the sea to the stove and onto our table. Absolutely love this place and the service is superb too.

The venue is upstairs, and has a view over the beachfront. The decor is in keeping with the seafood/beachfront theme. The staff were attentive, and were willing to accommodate our requests for adjustments to the dishes we requested. There is a large selection of seafood...More

We were a party of 7 adults and 6 children celebrating two birthdays. The food was excellent and the service good. The restaurant provided a few little treats as well. This was a great restaurant to have this celebration.

This popular seafood restaurant at a top destination, namely Bloubergstrand, on a busy Saturday night might well have been a mistake. It was not. My friend and I ordered catch of the day, (hake) and when I felt mine was a trifle overdone, the maitre...More

Catch22 is a beachside grille with a touch of class. A surf and turf ocean-front dining experience where the steaks and seafood are both so good you're in a Catch 22 as to which to order! Fortunately for you, here you can have your steak and eat it too! A light seafood starter, followed by a grilled-to-perfection steak, or a combo of both allows you the best of both worlds in one sitting. Al-fresco inspired casual dining in a fresh, effortlessly styled environment indicative of coastal living. Good wines & modern cocktails, fresh ingredients, friendly hospitality & a sea view combine to offer an enjoyable, relaxed, linger-longer atmosphere. Whether you and a friend wish to catch up over brunch, a light seafood salad or sushi; you and a colleague are in need of an after-work cocktail or three accompanied by light finger foods and chilled music; or you and the family are in the mood for a mouth-watering evening meal of prawns and a perfectly grilled steak, you can call them up and say "Meet me at Catch22!"
