Great food with excellent service.
The full bar has a large selection of mix drinks and must try the Martini's.

Excellent choice for a night out. Loved the extensive menu because of the variety of choices. Ambiance was superb. Ate at the bar with Alex as our bartender/server and he was most attentive! Live piano music lofting through the air was a lovely accompaniment to my company and the meal. I will definitely come again as this was my first visit and it receives the highest marks from my palate!

For the price of the entree, a small salad should have been included. Adding a salad would also give the impression of a higher quality restaurant.

Early Valentines celebration at Catula with my husband was truly special. We had outstanding service by Carlos! And the live piano playing was perfect! Plus the food was delicious!

The food was incredible, excellent, but the service needs more training, if they add tablecloth and they give training to the service people I can definitely give them a high 5 star.

I was here about 1 1/2 years ago and the service was awful! My in-laws had recently gone back and told me that they had a very nice dining experience so, I tried them again. We went with two other couples and the food was very good and the service was excellent. So, I’m glad to report that we will be back.

Great ambiance with interesting art. But need more waiters/waitresses so service was not as satisfying as it should be.. waitress doubled as bartender so was busy .

Had never heard of this spot be we are so glad we tried it. Great food. The service was excellent. The pianist was a nice touch and the music didn't overpower the place. Very nicely decorated. All was excellent. It was a little louder than I would have preferred but that might have also just been our table. Would absolutely go back soon.

Excellent dining experience. I took my wife and my mother-in-law for her birthday. The food was excellent! All of us had fish entrees, and they were amazing! My wife and mother-in-law had mojitos and I had a Dirty Martini. Both drinks were fantastic! The vibe is very energetic! The crew sang Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law Latin Style. The server was excellent! We will definitely be back!

Since I moved to South Florida from the Carolinas, I’ve always said “there’s nothing special about the food here.” I’ve been very unimpressed with South Florida cuisine UNTIL Cafe Catula! Everything was flavorful and perfect! Kudos to the chef! The service was also magnificent (we sat at the bar) and the atmosphere was lively. We will definitely be back!!

Excellent attentive service. The dinner special of a 3 course meal and a glass of wine is a great deal!

We had salads and lentil soup for starters, branzino, salmon and risotto for dinner and coconut flan, creme brûlée and poached pears with ice cream for dessert.

Everyone enjoyed their meals!

Mondays are great if you want to have a nice quiet dinner as they have no live music playing. Much easier to converse.

Very disappointed with this visit. I was there 2 weeks prior and had a good experience except for being seated in the overflow area, hence not the main dining room. I had made plans to have dinner with friends for this visit and made my reservation the day before. When I arrived, the hostess sat us in the overflow area yet again. I asked for a table in the main dining area since there were multiple tables for 4 open to which the hostess flat out said there were none available. She was quite rude as well. In hindsight I should have asked to speak with the manager. With that said I do not recommend this restaurant nor will I ever return based on your rude hostess.
