We were visiting from UK and called in one evening and had probably the best steaks we had ever tasted. We were so impressed that we managed to squeeze in an additional visit two days later before we flew home. The menu is vast...and the choices are difficult, but whatever you pick you will hit a winner. From the friendly... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years but won't be going again. We always thought how sophisticated it was and such good service and excellent food. We were in Cape Town in March and again over Christmas. Last week we took our daughters with us, neither having been there before. We were stuck on a table in a... More

Good service, nice atmosphere, good quality food. I had the whole baby Kingklip, perfectly cooked, superb. My husbands pepper steak, medium rare as ordered. They should take the chocolate fondant off the menu, or get the right recipe. Enjoyable evening, reasonably priced.

The cattle baron in Constantia village is always a happy outing with basic but good quality food. I celebrated a friend's birthday there recently and we mostly had steak. It was all prepared perfectly to everyone’s preferences from bloody as hell to burned to a crisp. Don’t bother with the sauces though my béarnaise sauce was stodgy and the mushroom... More

I am a true believer of "credit where credit is due" and believe that 'The Cattle Baron', Constantia needs to have their praises sung for their brilliant food, superb service and amazing hospitality!!! I recently dealt with Pam, while organising my Mom's 70th Birthday lunch, who went beyond the call of duty and made the organisational experience as "painless" as... More

Not a wine-farm restaurant with a breath-taking view, but nevertheless a very popular draw for Constantia locals as well as tourists. Hard to beat the quality of their meat and that's what they do. Also possible to enjoy a non-carnivorous dinner. It gets busy and to be sure, is definitely worth booking ahead.

We have been to Cattle Baron many times and this has been our favorite steakhouse. Last night we went, and what a disappointment. The menu has changed, and not for the better. One person in our party was diabetic, and does not eat red meat. She has always had the chicken kebabs on the previous menu. This is no longer... More

The menu and wine are good but the service is slow and I regret to say the steak was medium rare but overcooked. Upon reflection I should have sent it back but everything about the meal was not special - cooked pumpkin and sauced spinach were given to the steak eaters in dishes to help yourself. It lacked the sparkle... More
