Despite it being the middle of winter in The Cape, we ended up having lunch on the balcony at Catch 22. The sun was shining and the view across to Table Mountain made it feel like we were on holiday, rather than buying items for...More

We visit Catch 22 at least 3x per month. The Sirloin steak with pepper sauce is always a winner, and their sushi chef really knows his stuff. On a winters afternoon, their patio is great to have a sun-downer or two... great views and really...More

Really great place to enjoy a good meal and some drinks while overlooking the ocean and busy beach strip. Their menu is very tongue-in-cheek with drinks having names like "sun of a beach" and food like "Beach buoy". A very good meal with 6 prawns,...More

According to reviews we opted this place for lunch. Unfortunately they had no sushi as the sushi chef left. We came specially for sushi so we were quite disappointed. So we took the seafood platter and it was really not great. Everything was soooo oily....More

Got to this place attracted by the good reviews I read, and I was expecting a way better result. Ordered a seafood platter which at R274 was not really cheap for the local standards. It was made of half a spine fish (good), squids (good)...More

I absolutely love the Calypso Catch. It's as if the seafood went from the sea to the stove and onto our table. Absolutely love this place and the service is superb too.

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!"
