Cattle Baron is a famous steak house with franchises nationally. It offers a warm ambiance with wooden tables and cattle portraits on the walls suitable for an intimate night out.

Food
It’s a steak house restaurant, the menu offers different kinds of steaks, mostly grilled, with a small selection of chicken and sea food. It has a big range of well known wines and whiskeys.
The menu begins with starters and salads, such as the deep fried breadcrumb and cheese stuffed mushrooms with tarter sauce on the side. The smoked Salmon slivers served on a deep fried rosti topped with crème fraiche, capers and red onions, is a favourable choice. For herbivores, the menu offers a fresh rocket salad topped with cherry tomatoes, red onion, avocado and buffalo mozzarella. Vegetarians have two options on the menu a vegetarian platter or crepes florentine layered with spinach, feta and grilled mushrooms topped with napolitana sauce, sprinkled with parmesan shavings and salad greens. Followed by lighter grills on the menu (burgers, beef strips and chunks).
Steaks and grills are Sirloin, Rump and fillet steaks cooked to your liking accompanied with chips or mash potato or grilled vegetables. Can request the steak to be flambed in brandy and accompanied by a creamy peppercorn sauce on the side. Meat on the bone like spare ribs, chops and prime rib, the prime rib waiters try to push out when they recommend to a customer, its lightly covered in black pepper and grilled. Not much flavour from the Prime rib and chewy. It comes with chips or mash with creamed spinach and mashed butternut on the side. There is a good selection on the section of ‘Steaks that made us famous’ like the Sirloin Nevada, a 300 g sirloin topped with bacon avocado, camembert and toasted onions. Comes with a choice of mash, chips, 1 large baked potato or salad. Would have liked the camembert to be slightly melted on the beautifully grilled steak.
On the kiddies menu option there isn’t much to choose from besides four options of burgers, ribs and calamari strips and milk shakes. The burger doesn’t have toppings like tomato and lettuce, its very bland and too much for a child.
Wouldn’t return for a family dinner but I would go back for drinks with friends. Dessert choices are not extraordinary,: ice cream with Bar One sauce, malva pudding with ice cream, homemade baked cheesecake and Dom Pedro and liquored coffees.

Service
The friendly staff offer a warm welcome to the spacious restaurant and the manager is efficient in maintaing good communication between the staff.

Ambience
Cattle Baron in Durbanville is famous amoungst the locals. We arrived during a busy time of evening. All the tables were occupied and one could hear the vibrant conversations coming from each of them. The age group of the crowed that was present was 30+ years old.
It just needs space for kids under 12 years to move freely about to become a family restaurant. There is secure parking outside with Cattle Baron written in big on the outside, yet it remains hidden from the main road.

Best for...
Rump steak covered in their house barbecue sauce.

    One of my favorite places to have steak. The decor is a bit outdated but the service is amazing
    Lovely restauraunt, wide selection of steak. The fillet is always a winner, being tender and juicy. Highly recommended.
    My husband took me to this restaurant the first time I came to Cape Town and it has been our special restaurant ever since. The food and service is excellent!! Thank you Cattle Baron for adding special times to our lives ❤️❤️❤️
    I have never yet had a bad steak at cattle baron in 25 years! Their quality is consistent and their portion sizes reasonable. The fact that you get a starch AND veggies makes every plate worth the money spent - everywhere else every dish you want is extra. They also charge no corkage with makes it even more attractive. I have been to many steakhouses but Cattle baron Durbanville is still the best value and quality for money
    Worst night ever. Bread basket only had 3 slices and 2 butter sticks for 4 people. Starter came that we did not order, yes we did eat it. Looked awesome and did taste nice. I ordered a blu 300g Chateau briand and asked specifictly not for a skillet but a very hot plate. Steak came and was colder then a normal blu steak.(not fussy about that cause a dont care). The plate was cold and the bearniase was set(ice cold like it came out of the fridge and was just put in the plate.). The mushroom sauce was just hot enough. When I asked the waiter about it, he said "I thought it is cold but uhm....". I send it back and did not take another plate of food. You can call that "cut your nose and spite your own face" but that is just how I am. The manager came to the table, and with a smile said "I'll remove it from the bill". WHAT??!! You will do that for me?? I expect that as I litteraly took one bite from the steak. To top that, my wife ordered a strawberry milkshake and got pink milk after 35min. I regularly go to Cattle Baron TygerWaterfront and never in my life had a problem with anything. I end up spending R775 for other people. This is for sure the first and LAST time Cattle Baron Durbanville will see me.
