Description: 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!"

a quite big restaurant with a great view of the beach and sunset if you are there at the right time. started off with some great oysters and some mixed starters with grilled calamaris and similar which were good, then had the kingklip of course which was ok with fries. We had good sparkling wines to start and then some white wine all from south Africa.
Overall it is simple, service could be better but is ok, have tasted better fish it was decent but not special.
price-wise great and not expensive, setting beachside so fits.
quite far from the center of cape town.

Enjoy beautiful sea and Table Mountain views while eating freshly prepared seafood.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Blouberg with great food and service. The staff are friendly and well trained.

The ambiance is great and the restaurant is almost always busy and booking is recommended.

I love the prawn gratin as a starter, as I am not a snails fan and the chili crusted calamari with peanut satay is always a winner. The kiddies portions are huge and our daughter loves the fish and chips. Sushi also highly recommended.

Excellent service! Interesting menu! Fabulous food! Great vibe!

Our waitress was outstanding! She immediately told us what fish they didn't have for the evening. Also when Hein ordered the fillet on the bone, she had to check in the kitchen ... to make sure it wasn't too mature.

Wednesday evening 8 February 2017, we managed to snag a table inside. The restaurant was busy with an excellent vibe. Real interesting menu ... seafood and steak.

I wanted to try a few small items, so I ordered the Calamari tubes in a chilli crust, deep fried and served with spicy peanut satay sauce. It was great! Tender calamari, crisp crust and rich yummy peanut sauce. I also ordered the garlic baquette with cheese ... it was quite a big roll ... luckily I could share it with the other 2 men. Also had the battered onion rings. Crispy and big.

Hein ordered the Madagascan Fillet on the Bone - served with sauteed potatoes and veg and Madagascar peppercorn sauce. That fillet was THICK and juicy. The potatoes were divine and topped with crispy onions. Hein liked the Madagascar peppercorn sauce, although he's used to it cream-based.

Chris had T-bone with baked potato, onion rings and sour cream. It was good.

I also had a gingerbread milkshake. My goodness! It tasted like smooth gingersnap cookies!!!!!! It would have be a real 'wow' if they served this milkshake with a gingersnap cookie.

My husband and I were on our way to a function, but decided to have a light meal beforehand. Catch 22 was recommended to us. The whole experience was amazing. Service excellent and our sushi was wonderful. It has an almost fine-dining atmosphere, but not with the silver-service.

The place is fresh and clean and happy!
