Description: 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!"

“Good value with a great view.”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Really good value for money. Fresh, tasty seafood in a fun environment. Great view over Blouberg bay to watch the kite surfers and SUPs. Pity the outside balcony is reserved for smokers though...

Glad you picked up some happy/fun vibes at Catch 22!

For future, do be aware that there is both a smoking and non-smoking area of the balcony!

“Beautiful view of beach and sunset, good seafood!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

We two girls just popped in it after 9:30pm when we finished our photo shooting at Bloubergstand beach. We were surprised its good tasty &fresh seafood and cheap price! The service is good as well. We ordered seafood platter for one (R198) to share, sashimi, and grilled kingklip fish. With a bottle of water, the bill is around R500. We could not be more happy. Big portion but much cheaper than in London.
