I am a big fan of all things Constantia. It has become a top culinary hotspot, with foodies from around the world making the pilgrimage, and Steenberg is at the heart of it all. Celebrate the best season of the year with some delicious new tastes at Catharina’s Restaurant, the signature eatery at Steenberg farm. Executive Chef Kerry Kilpin of Bistro Sixteen82, the sister restaurant on the estate, has taken over the reins in the kitchen. She’s has added her personal touch to a host of exciting new light summer dishes on the à la carte menu.

Chef Kerry describes her new dishes as “contemporary classics with a twist” bursting with fresh seasonal flavours for all tastes. New on the starters, there is a choice between ham hock tortellini, marinated artichoke salad, hand-cut beef tartare and her favourite, the Cajun calamari with asparagus, chard, lime and miso. Sous vide pork belly, grilled beef fillet and sirloin steaks are up for mains. There is plenty on offer in the dessert line-up to indulge your sweet tooth from lime vanilla pannacotta and spiced pumpkin crème brûlée to lighter options such as seasonal sorbets. Catharina’s also welcomes vegetarians with a dedicated menu.

You’ll feel right at home while exploring these alluring menu options all summer long. Catharina’s tranquil terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco meals in dappled shade with a glass or two of fine Steenberg bubbly or Sauvignon Blanc.
