“Great food, mediocre desserts”
Review of The Cattle Baron

Reviewed 3 May 2014

We went to cattle baron on Thursday night, the steaks and service was excellent. Our family had calamari, pepper crusted steaks, marinated rump strips, sirloin and chicken cordon blue. After enjoying the main meal we ordered desserts, when this arrived it was a real let down after the wonderful main course.

We were a company of 6 . What I didnt like was the length of the table which made it difficult to chat to anyone else but the person opposite you. How I appreciate round tables after this experience
But the food and servicw were wow

The food is exactly what you would expect - very good meat, well cooked and presented. This is standard South Africa fare, with no frills, but none the worse for that. They were quite happy to cook a sirloin steak without the awful 'basting sauce', and it was delicious! They were also quite easy about us taking our own bottle of wine, and didn't charge corkage. The service was pleasant, courteous, and certainly quick enough for 2 Europeans who like to take their time over a meal.

It's been a while since we have been to this Cattle Baron, which used to be regular visit when we lived close by.

Going back last night, it was disappointing to see that a previous Steakhouse of the Year winner is unlikely even to make it to the finals, based on our experience. While our waiter was very pleasant, service was extremely slow, and children being allowed to run around the restaurant made it seem like a slightly upmarket Spur.

The chateaubriand was still very pleasant, although the baked potato could definitely have been better. Unfortunately it's not somewhere that we will be in a rush to visit again any time soon.

Service was embarrassingly bad - waiter didn't have a clue! Food not even close to the Spur. Very disappointing.
