Strong sense of mature male must have decorated Cattle Baron as you are made to know that real men eat there and comfort is key. The service was kind and while I did not eat at the restaurant I did scan the menu which had many meaty choices. I am sure the food must be as good as the seating and decor as the smells sure were good.

Do not go here.We used to travel here from Summerstrand for a nice steak every now and again but after a shockingly bad eating experience this Saturday they won't see us again.Our pork fillet was more of a seriously destroyed piece of biltong on some potato like substance resembling mash(last week's mash maybe).They sauce on top was less than a teaspoon full of feta cheese with peppadews finely chopped and differed greatly from the picture on the menu which displayed nice pieces of pork fillet on top of smooth mash and with feta and peppadews on top.The fillet in sauce was just as overcooked(seemingly fried in lashings of oil) and then drowned in a weird looking mushroom sauce.The food took 90 minutes to get to us, the waitress never came to check on the food and never asked for a second round of drinks.The table was never cleared and we had to eat amongst glasses etc.I had to take the menu's to the till area in an attempt to make space.The prices charged in comparison with what you get are exorbitant and unfortunately a complete rip-off.I will pay more for good food but to be expected to pay R98,00 for two small weird looking slices of pork on old mash is unacceptable.The side veggies were pumpkin(the best of the whole meal) as well as green goo which was spinach with flower(I presume) with lots of sand in it for added texture and crunch.They will have to get their act together if they plan on surviving in this industry as people do talk and talk here is not good at all.

Orders taken, fillet steak tough, never had tough fillet before. My husbands food arrived, meal was inedible. They removed it and the rest of us had finished eating and his food had still not arrived. They manager then had a bad attitude when told not to bring the food anymore and we were leaving. No apology or anything was forthcoming.

Always guaranteed a good chateaubriand. Very popular and therefore can be quite noisy.
