They need to pay the workers, they were on strike and I brought them out some food. But management were trying to do all the service without the very friendly and determined staff. I was brought there on a game drive and was shocked.

We had breakfast this morning, food was stunning, very tasty, hot, the service from Olivia the waitress was fantastic, it started to rain and we came inside the restaurant. We will definitely be back as the meal was well worth it. The restaurant was busy...but we didn’t wait long. Thank you!More

My wife and I visited Cattle Baron Skukuza on Saturday 21 January 2024. I ordered a cheeseburger and Bernaise sauce on the side and my wife ordered a blue cheese burger. Both burgers arrived with bacon on - odd? The chips were really bad, the...colour depicted old oil and you could tell by the dull, lifeless taste that they had spent an hour or more on the chip dump ( that's chip temporary, yes, temporary, storage). Only 3 to 5 minutes after receiving our orders was I told there was no Bernaise sauce! I switched to cheese sauce. Both buns were crumbly, dry and NOT fresh. Onion rings tasted slightly fishy and my wife's blue cheese sauce? had the consistency of congealed something.... Overall a very poor experience. Next time I would rather have a garage pie from the petrol station. I can only wonder what the mostly international visitors from France, Netherlands and Australia etc sitting nearby thought of this awful cuisine;More

Wonderful scenery. Superb sightings of Hippo and Water Buffalo. you can also see the Train Restuarant/ Hotel that is permanently on the bridge. the food was really good value for money and very tasty. the waitress was a pleasure, was quick, friendly and knowledgeable. All...in all a good meal after an early drive in the Kruger Park. My only complaint was the chips that accompanied the battered fish. Very powdery. Didn't enjoy them.More

We ate at the Cattle Baron on Dec 30th as a family. We were pleasantly surprised. Olivia (and Betty) made sure that our experience was great. The breakfast was very tastefully, we ate the breakfast buffet. My son-in-law ate a hamburger that he enjoyed very...much. We did not wait long for anything that we asked for. Great service and great food. Well done!More

It is beyond lovely to have tasty steaks, a selection of venison, and drinks while overlooking the Sabie River. We watched some pretty active hippos while we dined. The service was also excellent. This restaurant is a nice way to wind down after a day...in the bush. The morning breakfast buffet is also good.More

Bad start as they lost our booking for 12. Service was very pleasant, but very slow 25 minutes to get drinks. We waited a long time in between to get some water. The steaks were excellent, salads were good except there was no avocado. Chocolate...mousse was inedible as it was made with sour cream. The Wi-Fi was useless. Prices were good.More

Sitting outside on the deck is awesome, no monkeys just fresh air and the view. SERVICE needs working on big time. 20min for a filter coffee to arrive, 50min for breakfast to arrive. Possibly try somebody else for breakies

As alternative to the station restaurant we had breakfast here once. The ambience was not as good, since one could only sit inside as outside one is attacked by the monkeys. The food was OK, but several dishes from the menu were not available.

We love the outdoor dining along the river, particularly watching the sun go down. Best for steaks or burgers, but enough other things on the menu to satisfy most people. It can get busy and sometimes you have to wait a long time for the...bill. We always ask to pay at the same time we order so we dont have to chase down the server when we wish to leave.More

This is a real treat for meat lovers. I had the Chateaubriand while others in my party had steaks. All perfectly cooked. The view over the sabie river from the terrace is wonderful. The waiters are wonderful.
