Description: The Cattle Baron in Paarl is a Company owned store. It is a modern, streamlined, more efficient operator than its predecessor. The store is currently owned by Ronnie Dick, CEO of Cattle Baron Steak Ranches and Franco Adams; who has been with Cattle Baron for over 13 years. He operated as head Chef and still functions as Projects and Development Manager for the Group. Franco will be the face of the business.The Cattle Baron caters for the discerning businessman and the family dinner. We also contribute to the community by providing a Senior Citizens lunch buffet at reasonable prices. Sunday's we have a family open day with a choice of a la carte or our famous buffet with a variety of delicious roasts. Renowned for our mouth-watering steaks - the secret of our success lies in the preparation of our meat. Our perfectly aged, grain-fed beef is wet-aged ensuring our steaks are consistently juicy, tender and full of flavour. At Cattle Baron we offer a unique menu with simple, home-cooked dishes that reflect traditional elements of food. We pride ourselves on delivering to our customers elegant dining and unsurpassed standards of service in relaxed surroundings.

“Out of this world!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This restaurant was a big surprise and a treat to visit it............Special treatment from the waiters. The décor is so special ...like your are somewhere in Europe. Food fantastic. The steak was prepared exactly the way we ordered it. It is worth all the money even though some people feel it is a bit expensive. I will definitely recommend it for a treat evening to your partner!!!!!!!

“Training desperately needed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

The food was badly prepared, especially when one considers the pricing. The manager was a case study in bad complaint handling. The waiter, although sweet and trying his best was clearly given very little to no guidance and I felt so sorry for him. I would go (almost) anywhere in Paarl before going back to Cattle Baron.

“Great food and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This must be Paarls best secret!!!

It's beautiful inside. That warm grill house feeling... enough space for your elbows to eat their anxious food and yet code enough for you to still lean over for a kiss!

They have a Saturday night dinner buffet fir R 120. 00 which is the best deal you're going to get anywhere!

The fid exceeded my expectation after having chosen the buffet, alas....or was superb!

This comes with a starter and a desert mind you!

The service is equally good with amazing staff.

Well done guys!

“Hamburger evening on Mondays just the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The food is always excellent, but can be a bit expensive with steaks over a R100. On Mondays you can eat a gourmet hamburger for just R29, and it is served with veggies and a side dish. Just book early to get a reservation.
