Catalina Restaurant, Rose Bay, Australia provides exceptional food, wine and service, a fantastic backdrop from which to view modern day seaplanes coming in and out of the harbour. It is the perfect spot to imagine the splendour of first class travel by flying boat from Sydney to Singapore in the late 1930’s. The Catalina was an American and Canadian flying boat built in the 1930’s and 40’s.

Ah now I love the old planes. I saw the Catalina fly once.. and have seen her at Duxford too. An ugly duckling on the ground and sheer beauty in the air 🙂
I had thought that the restaurant was somehow linked to Catalan culture in Spain, I was pleased that I eventually made the connection with flying boats and seaplanes 🙂 Robert
We get the spitfires over the house here quite a lot. Tears.. every time. I’m hopeless 🙂
Thank you, I’m pleased you like it 🙂
Catalina is also an island off California.. How was the food, may have to visit there when next seeing the cousins?
The food is beautiful, I highly recommend lunch so that you can enjoy the view of the harbour too. Robert
