Description: The only steakhouse in Hermanus situated in the heart of the village on Lemm's Corner / Harbour Square. The Cattle Baron Grill & Bistro aims to be the place for friendship, great food, a relaxed atmosphere and great service. Hand cut steaks and specializing in Chateaubriand fillet, well matured rumps and sirloin are simply the best in town. Ribs and seafood, salads and desserts, great coffee and a delightful wine menu featuring many local greats. All the favourite specialities are made with passion and flair. Try the Stuffed Mushrooms for Starters, tasty deep-fried white buttons filled with a delicate mixture of cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley and sherry and served with our unique tartar sauce. For a healthy option, have the Beetroot and Butternut Salad, a delicious mix of grilled beetroot, roasted butternut, feta cheese, rocket and toasted onions. For mains, try the Grilled Sole, brushed with a choice of lemon or garlic butter or for meat lovers, have the Bar-B-Que Spare Ribs - pork loin ribs flame-grilled with our famous BBQ rib basting (500g or 1kg) or the Chateaubriand - fillet flambéed with brandy and served with mushroom sauce and Cattle Baron béarnaise sauce. A designated Cafe Bar area is available - sip a local draft beer while watching TV. Value for money buffet lunches served on selected days. The perfect place for enjoying an African seaside sunset or dinner. Lots of parking available. Click here to make a reservation.

Reviewed 30 October 2013

We stayed 6 nights in Hermanus and dined in the Cattle Baron in the Square twice because the food was so good. The first time, I had the fillet and Queen Prawn combination which was very tasty, beautifully served in a warm and friendly environment. The second time was a calculated move and we selected the 3 courses. Starters were calamari steak strips and calamari tubes, fried then I moved to the signature dish, the Chateaubriand steak and my wife had the Carpetbagger with mussels and cheese. Dessert for us both was Amarula ice cream. When we left, we were greeted by the franchisee like old chums at the door as we waited for the drizzle to subside. The food was outstanding and the steak melted in the mouth. The calamari was also delicious, quite the best prepared I have had in many years! Very highly recommended as a suitable venue for any occasion.
