The Mediterranean/Cape style of Catch 22, enhanced by soft linens and aquamarine tones, gives it a laid-back seaside atmosphere, which is tastefully complimented by authentic Mediterranean seafood, chicken and meat dishes, as well as traditional Japanese sushi. The seafood platter is a favourite featuring line fish, prawns, mussels in a creamy white wine sauce, and deep fried calamari. Open daily from 10am to 11pm, reservations recommended.

Bloemfontein's Primi Piatti overlooks the scenic Loch Logan Waterfront and has two large fireplaces to warm winter diners, as well as a beautiful terrace from which to enjoy summer meals. Although Primi is a chain restaurant, it's a firm favourite with both locals and visitors. True to style, the authentic Italian cuisine is served in generous portions and menu favourites include the pancetta, with bacon in a creamy tomato sauce. Open daily from 9am to 10pm, reservations recommended.
