The food, the service and even the atmosphere was great. Best Cattle Baron that we have been to. Special mention on Amber and Chantique for the great service.

We had not been for almost a year, but it was worth returning to Paarl for the Cattle Baron alone. The chateaubriand was so good last time that we repeated the order this time. It matched or exceeded our memories - it was really enjoyable...More

This is a great restaurant. The steaks were good, as was the service. You need to book as it is quite popular, we were lucky to get a last minute booking. Wine selection was also good.

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.
