Four of us went to celebrate Friday at the Cattle baron and had a very enjoyable evening. The service was very excellent and the waiter had a good sense of humour and showed the cuts of beef available on the menu. We place our orders and my T-bone steak was cooked to perfection and the others at the table were... More

A very pleasant experience, not at all what I expected, it being a franchise establishment! Well informed and trained staff, excellent ambience and the food, well for someone who loves meat, a feast! Highly recommend!

A good mid-range restaurant with great improvements over the years. Cattle Barron famously serves the well known "Carpetbagger" steaks, grilled to perfection. Nice restaurant for Dinner.

Popped in after my long flight out to SA, very busy restaurant for a Monday night but managed to get a table, skipped a starter and went for a Fillet Steak, with side order of mushrooms. Both were delicious, not sure what the chef uses to baste the steak, but the flavour is fantastic, looking forward already to my next... More

Accept I have a big appetite but just too much meat. My own fault for having the mussels to start followed by the meat platter to share. It was all beautifully presented with side dishes, choice of sauces, etc. The American waitress was efficient, pleasant and helpful. Warning, you do need to be hungry!

Visited from overseas with 3 friends. The service was very professional and friendly - loved the two Odendal brothers. Food especially the Steak was very good. Will definitely recommend.

Nice venue with friendly people. Food and service had been good on all visits. Regarding bookings, however, it occured that, on occasion, my booking was not noted in the restaurant's book. It caused some inconvenience.

The Cattle Baron in Paarl is a Company owned store. It is a modern, streamlined, more efficient operator than its predecessor. The store is currently owned by Ronnie Dick, CEO of Cattle Baron Steak Ranches and Franco Adams; who has been with Cattle Baron for over 13 years. He operated as head Chef and still functions as Projects and Development Manager for the Group. Franco will be the face of the business.The Cattle Baron caters for the discerning businessman and the family dinner. We also contribute to the community by providing a Senior Citizens lunch buffet at reasonable prices. Sunday's we have a family open day with a choice of a la carte or our famous buffet with a variety of delicious roasts. Renowned for our mouth-watering steaks - the secret of our success lies in the preparation of our meat. Our perfectly aged, grain-fed beef is wet-aged ensuring our steaks are consistently juicy, tender and full of flavour. At Cattle Baron we offer a unique menu with simple, home-cooked dishes that reflect traditional elements of food. We pride ourselves on delivering to our customers elegant dining and unsurpassed standards of service in relaxed surroundings.
