Superb steaks, tasty, basted well, with crispy chips and their signature butternut/spinach side dish is what we expect every time from this long established restaurant group. We were not disappointed on our last visit and we look forward to our next. Service is excellent and...parking in the building is easy.More

We received the worst service from Elton. He only cared about the table with white people. We had to call other waiters to place our orders. He would walk right past us, we had to ask for our table to be cleaned between meals. He...kept forgetting to bring things that we ordered and we had to wait for about an hour between our courses. No apologies, no care. This ruined our Christmas lunch!!More

We called in for dinner last Tuesday evening. We were struck by the large choice on the menu, the atmosphere, the general ambience and the attentive staff. My wife had the Chateaubriand and I had the Nevada Sirloin steak, we both thought these perfect, beautifully...cooked and served. We followed this with the New York cheesecake, which our server told us was big enough to share (it was, but I would have liked the challenge of eating it all on my own). We enjoyed it so much that we returned on Wednesday, this time having the Chicken Bacamberry sauce whilst I had the fish and chips, same dessert. That too was perfect, and Thursday night did not seem like a hard decision, we returned again, this time fried fish and chips plus the blue cheese burger for me. The Friday night alas was our last day. Having had three positive experiences we returned once more and were not disappointed. Triple rolled sirloin steak and blackened peppered fillet for me, still same dessert to follow. Dear reader, for us the exchange rate (GBP) was very favourable indeed and we found the whole experience incredibly good value. Coupled with the attentive service every evening it just made our holiday. Alas this was a long trip for us, we are not likely to be able to repeat this journey but if we ever did we would come back again without a doubt.More

This should be 5 star because the food was wonderful but service not so good.My wife and I are holidaying in Cape Town and lodging in Capital Mirage,we used this restaurant 3 times because we were exhausted after tours and restaurant was so handy.First night...I had a special of 3 medallion steaks,excellent,second night 400 gram Ribeye cooked to perfection,third night,disaster.Waiter came over and handed my wife a food menu and me a drinks menu,one and a half minutes later he comes back and asks if we’re ready to order,I tell him I don’t have a menu,he takes one from the diner behind me then stands over me waiting.I tell him we’re obviously not ready but we will have a pint and a half pint of Stella Artoise while we’re deciding.I order fried squid for a starter and told there’s none so I get a sirloin on the bone again excellent,my wife gets a fillet steak,top class.In between times I’ve asked for a bottle of wine which he brings and leaves on table saying he’ll open it when steak comes,he doesn’t.Later on I ask for another Stella,he brings a pint of Heineken in a Heineken glass and tells me it’s Stella but they don’t have any Stella glasses.At this time the restaurant was nearly empty so there is no way they don’t have any Stella glasses,they’ve obviously poured it by mistake and palmed it on to me.I might not have noticed but I hate Heineken and knew right away.For a large restaurant I don’t believe they are short on menu’s either.I had one drink of the Heineken and left it,when waiter came with bill all smiles I told him there was no tip,he wasn’t happy and I pointed to the Heineken and said that’s why.I also noted on bill the next morning that the steaks were meant to have 20% off as it was steak Tuesday but that didn’t happen either.It’s a shame because I really liked this place and the first 2 nights were perfect with great food and serviceMore

Whilst stopping at the Southern Sun Cullinan hotel actually did this restaurant 3 times in 3 weeks! Probably mainly as some of my colleagues liked the place so much! My first visit I was perhaps a bit disappointed by the sirloin on the bone ......bit...chewy but I ate it anyway. By the time of my third visit I went for the ribeye off the bone which all my colleagues were raving about and it was excellent. Good service all round and nice ambience Would definitely recommendMore

As a long time expatriate I have been disappointed by the steaks in South Africa but this was different. We sat on the patio and had very delicious and flavorful steaks. My wife had a filet ($12 US!!) and I had a rump with monkey...gland sauce. Some of the best steaks I have had in years and unbelievably cheap in US$. The service was attentive and good and I highly recommend this location. If you are not familiar with South Africa order a Dom Pedro for dessert!!More

We visited this Restaurant which was in Johannesburg some years ago, where i first had a delicious Chateau Briand signature steak which i loved so much. This restaurant group seems to be popular in Cape Toen, having a number of branches. I introduced my wife...as well as my son to this lovely steak on our visit to this restaurant last night and we all thoroughly enjoyed a good quality, perfectly cooked steak m, according to each ones preference. It came with chips which i enjoyed ( freshly made as opposed to frozen fries), mash which my son had, or baby potato and sour cream.m which my wife had. We all enjoyed our sides. It was well presented, Flambeed, accompanied by sweet mustard as well as mushroom sauce. The service was excellent as well. So glad i decided to go to Cattle baron again for this firm favourite. Well done to the restaurant, i wish you would open more branches up country. .More
