Lunch with dad


Today The Boyf and I took my wonderful dad to Steenberg wine estate to have lunch at Catharina's restaurant for Father's day.

In spite of the gloomy weather, it was a truly fantastic afternoon - There was a jazz band playing, a delicious buffet (with a dessert table that almost put me into a sugar induced coma *winks*), comfy chairs, attractive surroundings, helpful waitors, fabulous wine (I discovered Steenberg's Catharina 2007 red wine, it's a winner) and a fireplace to keep us toasty.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a lavish, sunday buffet lunch and a great dining experience.  

What did you get up to this Father's Day?


To make a reservation at Catharina's you can call: +27 21 713-2222 or mail them at: reservations@steenberghotel.com

  7. Quite the luxurious place to take your dad to for some good ole fancy spoiling! Nothing wrong with that indeed.
    My mom and I spent the day with my grandparents {our first fathers day without my dad since he's passed on} That said, we weren't in much a celebration mood, but the day was quiet and soulfully relaxed.
    I clicked on to the Steenberg website - thanks for sharing - and 'randomly' forwarded the link to my (new) CT boyfriend (I'm in PE -eeek!!!) Hopefully he'll catch on to the hint :)Happy Monday!

  10. Nothing. They set the bar really low in my family so it isn't difficult to impress my dad. I bought him a present. Two books. Gave it to him DAYS before Father's Day.
