Enjoyed a lovely meal a Catarina's resturant, beautiful food and it was my wife's birthday and the waiter presented her with a dessert with 2 candles. The service was excellent and the staff very polite.

The food and service have been amazing every time Ive eaten at Caterina's either for lunch or dinner.
They have a excellent selection of meals and have been able to accomodate myself who is gluten free/ dairy free, and also my friends who are vegan & vegetarian.

Really enjoyed our evening, meal was very good and service fantastic. Initially we were seated at fairly cramped table but Before we ordered our waitress suggested we moved to a larger booth - I didn’t realise the staff were telepathic too !

We go here just to get the wonderful pate it is amazing and comes with a little pot of spiced apple . We always chose the set menu which has now gone up to £17 for 2 courses. We would like to see more variety on the mains section as this has not changed over the last few months but don't ever stop the starter of pate . It's great to be able to buy 1/2 carafe of wine instead of a whole bottle if one of us is driving

I ordered Hake which was overcooked, skin impossible to remove. Advised waiter who offered to replace. The replacement arrived 10minutes later, the rest of the party were finished their meal, I ate alone. Following dessert the bill arrived and instead of offering anything complimentary we were charged for two mysterious cocktails!
Poor experience I’ll not be back!

First time eating here. It was recommended by a friend.
We were sat at the back ,the kitchen door was behind us. The noise of the staff going in and out spoiled any conversation. Not sure if the door just needs oiled. Very disappointed but maybe the problem can be sorted very easily.
Ordered trifle for desert but again disappointed. My two friends and me had the same complaint. Far too much cream,very little custard. Did say to the waitress and she said she would pass it on to the chief.

Love the menu, love the decor and the Jazz live band on Sunday for brunch was such a treat. I will go again for Sunday Jazz. I have now visited Caterinas 3 times during the summer and have tried a few different meals from both the Healthy Menu and from the Brunch Menu. Love the choices and the price. Keep up the good work. I will be back and I have already given my friends great comments!

Food was absolutely awful. They didn't ask how our friend was (probably because they knew it was horrendous) incredibly disappointed as we rarely go out to eat as we don't make much money and it was a treat night. Sorely disappointed although thankfully eimear the bar lady from Da Vinci's bar was amazing she spoke to the chef and told him we didn't enjoy the food and he shrugged his shoulders so she offered us a drink of our choice on the house so thankfully Da Vinci's has someone like Eimear working there. If a manager or someone higher up reads this let Eimear make her cocktails in the bar because they were amazing! Saved the night.

But in future if you're offering ravioli don't give me penne pasta swimming in tinned tomatoes.

Hi Edel Thanks for taking the time to write and also thanks for visiting us. I'm sorry that you received a sub standard beef ragu on this occasion - it is a very popular dish and I can assure you it is not normally served in the way you described. We would have much preferred to have rectified the problem at the time with as little disruption as possible, so please give me a call if you would like to return to eat with my compliments. Best regards Peter Cochrane Restaurant Manager
