If you feel like fresh, light fare and an unbeatable view you should definitely visit Catch 22, located on Beach Boulevard on the Tableview beachfront. With a wrap-around balcony and an elevated view over Table Bay, you are unlikely to find a better view to enjoy, while sipping a chilled cocktail and tucking into fresh sushi and seafood.

The restaurant is light and airy, with an almost West Coast feel, the touches of blue and white and distinct beachiness, befit its seaside location. The staff are well-versed in the menu, and during busy times, whizz through the tables like a well-oiled machine. The restaurant is family-owned, and the many years spent in the hospitality industry show, in a very hands-on approach. Management endeavour to get around to every table during service to ensure each guest is greeted, which adds a lovely personal touch.

The food is well priced, served fresh and generously portioned. Try the crumbed fish goujons, coconut-crusted prawns or seafood salad for a fresh, light meal. The sushi is also a real treat, and to catch the 2 for 1 special, make sure you visit on a Thursday between 12h00 and 22h00.

The menu caters for all, so if you’re a landlubber at heart, don’t fear, you can order one of a number of chicken, steak or rib dishes.

During summer this is a sundowner and cocktail spot of note. Watch the sky turn various shades of pink and purple while you sip on a house special, Catch 23 cocktail (sure to set your head in a spin), or perhaps something lighter like a Pimms Jug.

Tuck into delicious food, ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ at the magnificent view, and toast the good life with friends, at this vibey and worth-the-visit spot.

Seafood, sushi and sundowners.
