Excellent place for a steak. It's upstairs overlooking a car park so you go for the food and not the view. Steaks grilled to order. Tender and tasty with a good basting. Service was very good. Bonus is that there is no corkage if you...take your own wine.More

Firstly, I would like to say ... I have been to other Cattle Barons and other steakhouses in Cape Town. There is NOT one restaurant that makes better steaks than they do. I always try to do a review and do not always. I know...how important it is for a Restaurant to receive reviews as it opens doors for other customers to visit that restaurant. Also for a restaurant to improve where things are not 100%. Now I reluctantly go to Durbanville Cattle Baron yearly for my birthday, while others want a different scenery. To me it's about the food, and there is NO other place that can beat the Cattle Baron's food - steak is my ultimate favorite food. Thanks to Karin for seating us and singing for me (I said it was ok), The waitress, and I can kick my ass, was beyond awesome. She first made sure of the language communicated in; for me, that was so important, and never had it at any other restaurant. Please pass my message to Her. The last but MOST important... to Herman Kotze the chef what an impression you always make on us, and how you cook our steak to perfection, CANNOT be beat anywherere!!More

We have been in this Cattle Baron many times. Mostly for the buffet. But in Corona time this is forbidden. So we had the lunchmenu. We had a wonderful steak, good crispy chips. The service was friendly as always. We will return.

What an experience we had at the restaurant. From the minute we walked in and was welcomed and attended to promptly. The service and knowledge of the waiter was good, so the advice as well. The meal as a whole was out of this world....I will definately return for more.More

Come here every year on our annual visit from Scotland. Best steaks ever and leave UK in its wake. Well worth a visit and no corkage charge if you bring your own wine.

This restaurant was chosen as it is the halfway point to meet a friend. It is situated in the heart of Durbanville, yet where it is a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the main road. Ample parking around and quite easy to...find. The restaurant lived up to it's name even though we settled for the lunch buffet which was more than adequate for our appetites. The food was of good quality and we enjoyed the ambiance and the friendliness of the staff. Once again a good managed restaurant and definitely on my revisit listMore

We visit this restaurant at least once a month (or sometimes more times) and are every time very satisfied with their service and food - really value for money! Thanks management, waiters and chefs!

The food is amazing. Again if you love meat then this is the place to visit. Staff is friendly. And you can enjoy a lovely bottle of bubbly with your well prepared steak.

We visited in June for a kids birthday dinner and all I can say is that the restaurant needs a serious upgrade. The seats are half broken and seriously uncomfortable. Screen showing the rugby damaged. Food was average.

Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner with our team; the food was amazing and service top notch. The atmosphere of this Cattle Baron is lovely. It was warm inside, in spite of the crisp winter weather outside. The restaurant is divided into two sections, and we were...seated in the "Grill House" section, which is lovely, with crisp white table linen and in my view ideally suited for special occasions, such as date night with the SO or business dinners. Service is very good. Our waiter was attentive, without being intrusive. We ordered a starter platter for the table, and all the dishes there was lovely. The venison carpaccio was especially yummy and worth a mention. I had the CHATEAUBRIAND 200g, which was just beautiful. Soft and juicy, and melt in the mouth. I can't recall what the rest of the table had, but everybody enjoyed their meals, and almost all of us cleaned our plates! I'm sure this restaurant would be lovely in summer; I would highly recommend it for a nice meal. Not necesarily with friends, and I do think it's more suited for couples & adulting, rather than drinks & steaks! (If you know what I mean)More

We have been frequenting CB Durbanville for more than a decade. Their food and service is outstanding, certainly the best of the CB group.
