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!"

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 d' changed it without fuss. The sides, creamy pumpkin and potato were a feast in themselves.

Visited twice on recent holiday.. The Fish of the day, Calamari and Burgers were superb. Very good value, always very busy so may be idea to book ahead.

Very good service too.

Good views of beach and sea. Would return again

Supper for two, we had heard a bit about this establishment and decided to give it a try, the Halloumi starter was good, my wife had the medium prawns with a salad, she proclaimed both to be delicious and the lemon butter sauce the best she has had in a long time. I had the steak and calamari tubes both done to perfection, veg arrived a bit cold but once the hot version arrived it was delicious. A great night out with good service to compliment the food.

Had a 3 course dinner at a very reasonable price, great service from our host and server Evans. Fresh seafood perfectly cooked. Great setting on the beach front with great views over the bay. This is a must visit

Casual and right off the ocean. We were a group of 14 (six Americans) and had the perfect table with a reservation. Everyone ordered local and imported fried fish and prawns. My wife and I had sushi. We love the Salmon Roses (rice wrapped with raw Salmon; add a dollop of sauce and caviar). See picture. Wine list was nice. Owners were there to great us: very friendly. Highly recommended.
