Ever since our very beginning, Catalina has been honoured to host generations of family celebrations. As a result, Catalina has become an iconic fine-dining family venue in Sydney.

Due to the layout of the restaurant we sadly do not have the floor space or storage area to accommodate prams. We encourage our patrons to utilise our in-house highchairs (please request at time of booking - as we only have a limited number) and where possible, use a capsule to transport loved ones to the restaurant.
