Excellent food, great service

Was on a two day stopover in Johannesburg and really wanted a good South African steak. Had fantastic rump and girlfriend had prawns as good as you could get at any seaside restaurant. Service was excellent too. Will always return when in RSA.

The Baron on Main is a super Restaurant and Bar. The management is always around, the atmosphere is refreshing and happy and the food is very good and obviously prepared with plenty of TLC. Never a bad meal.

Was a great night out with business associates at the monthly 'Flashback Fridays'. The food I had at the Baron was delicious. The service needs some attention though.

Service is unacceptable waiters standing around and we waited too long for a water and a cup of tea eventually we cancelled. My daughter had a bad experience with the same manager when there was something in her drink that she ordered and he argued with her and at the same time he had a cockroach crawling on his shoulder....

Great value! Situated in the heart of Fourways, The Baron is definitely worth a visit. There is always a very busy vibe and you can watch your favorite sport on the TV's spread around.

We stumbled upon this very nice setting and were impressed with décor, layout and furnishings. The menu provides for ample choice within the "Contemporary" theme and a good selection of wines to choose from. The waitress was very friendly and attentive so also the duty manager. The quality of the food ordered was excellent and very very tasty, no skimping.... More

Just had my Friday mood destroyed by the attitude of the staff here. Been planning a Friday get together with some friends. Arrived early and went to an open table. The waitress came to ask us to move as the table was 'reserved' however there was no sign on it to say this - only a menu. When I asked... More

We dined here on a busy lunchtime with Xmas parties on the go and in the middle of electricity load shedding. Nevertheless the waitress and manager coped very well and the steaks we ordered were the best we have had in SA - or anywhere else for that matter !. Good atmosphere, excellent service and, as a bonus, the manager... More

It took them about 15 minutes to notice that I sat down. The place was very noisy and despite not being completely full the service was very poor. Throughout dinner we had to get up twice to look for our waitress. I ordered a steak which turned out to be mediocre at best. My friends ordered ribs which seemed to... More
