Main meal also had a wide selection with the main orders being various cuts of steak with nobody disappointed all cooked to perfection.

We had dinner on Saturday evening at The Baron with 30 people. I must admit, when I saw how busy they were (full house), I though there might be issues with the food and service. Both impressed. The service was quick and the food excellent. The calamari starter was great and the Rump main perfect (it is rare that you... More

Lots of families seem to frequent this restaurant as there is a play area outside. Is it for the large portions of food or because they cater for families using big round tables I wonder? The steaks they serve are of a very good quality and the veggies provided were decent and not over cooked. You have to like the... More

Nothing bad about this restaurant at all. The potato skins are the best starter and the baron is known for their crispy baked potatoes so if you're wondering what to eat with your meal, do yourself a favour and have a baked potato.

My husband and I have been going to The Baron regularly every week for the past 2 months and always had amazing food and service. Unfortunately the last time we were very disappointed. Starters cold, main course served on a Kiddies plate, they had apparently run out of big plates, then my husband found a long hair in his steak.... More

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.

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.

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....
