Quiet Monday evening, few tables, one would think that you would have great service, great food!! Well, all but! We finished our starters, when our Waitress came to the Table to say the wine we ordered is out of stock!! Manager on Duty did not...know if starter I had was served with bread or not?? Shocking! My friend had Pork Belly, chunk of meat, without nice crispy crackling, cold mash, presentation out of the 80's! My Steak lathered in a gruesome basting, what are they trying to hide? Just disappointing. Never to return! Table behind us also complained bitterly! :-(More

As recently as two years ago, the best Ribs in the Cape Town area was at the Cattle Baron in Table View. But going back for ribs a week ago was a tragic experience of biblical proportions. It was lunchtime on a Thursday....cold...overcast sky...just ideal...for a piled plate of ribs, chips and onion rings. Climbing up the stairs should have warned us....a spider-haunted ruin comes to mind...and going through the door, we were met by a wave of disorganised, slovenly indifference... imagine an abandoned aircraft hangar that could seat 100 but only had 10 customers in total....bad news travels fast. Ocourse, we ordered ribs and sat back. After inhaling the ambience for 35 minutes, our food arrived. My immediate reaction was that i had been given the wrong plate....there was nothing resembling spare ribs on the plate...what looked like 4 thick slices of meatloaf was covered by a thick brown sauce of indeterminate parentage. The chips were small, but OK. The onion rings were acceptable. Instead of sending it back and remembering how excellent the food had been on previous visits, I started to tuck in. Big mistake. The taste was of pre-cooked, microwaved failure. The meat was also old...the slightest touch with a fork reduced it to individual gray fibres...My wife and I looked at each other and called for the bill...R680 later, we made our escape... The real question is this....How are their doors still open? Are the cut-price pensioner specials merely postponing the inevitable? Never again...I'd rather lick the road outside....More

Great service from Helda. Always excellent quality steaks here, and friendly service from all. Love the fact that it's free corkage for your own wine.

The Blouberg branch of "Cattle Baron" is not as bad as the latest reviews on this portal suggest. Located in a strange building in a strange neighborhood, it has a surprisingly nice interior. The selection of starters and steaks is very good, the latter being...perfectly cooked to our order. Even the desserts were nice although the Crème Brûlée is served in a very old fashioned soup cup. The service however is poor to say the least. Not knowledgable about their own menu, not to mention the wines, and extremly slow and inattentive. The kitchen on the contrary makes itself noted by shouting across the entire restaurant. So, if you don't mind long waiting times for really good steaks, don't be put away by exterior of this restaurant.More

Horrible food, completely disastrous food especially for a Christmas day lunch buffet. So called ‘roast beef’ and ‘roast lamb’ were literally stews. No veggies beside veg stew. No salads. Never seen anything like this. Woke up the following day with runny, crampy tummy

I wasn’t aware slave labor still existed! They don’t pay salaries to waitrons, or other expenses which they are legally required to do. Surely their management of the franchise, or even the owners of the brand should respect their staff in 2022

This was a horrible waste of time and money. We waited for our food for close to 2hrs. The restaurant was not packed at all. The waiters were lazy and had a weird thing of just laughing for no reason. When the food finally reached...our table, it was tasteless... the creamy spinach was like grass that has been dried out. Not worth a visit. Save your money and go to Spur.More

This branch is a huge disappointment. The food was mediocre. Chips was so overcooked they can just as well slap some store bought crisps on the plate. You expect a fine dining experience at a Cattle Barron. The local Spur would have better food at...half the price. R550 for 2 person lunch. Tiny paper serviettes. Will never go back and most definitely not recommend. If this is a Franchise set up, their Head Office should investigate, it's dragging their name through the mud.More

I really felt like a nice steak so chose Cattle Baron as they are well known for good steaks. I asked the waitress if I could have a rump with a nice piece of fat on it. She explained this was not possible but could...bring me some fat on the side. I didnt like that idea so ordered a medium rare T-Bone which should have a decent piece of fat on the sirloin side. The T-Bone arrived with no fat at all, instead of where the fat should be was just gristle. I sent the steak back and the Manager offered to replace it. A new steak arrived, with almost no fat on it either. The bone side was very thick and uncooked (Blue) and the outside was very thin. So a oddly cut steak instead of being even. By now I was so upset and hungry I didnt bother to complain again and ate half my steak and left. For a R259.00 piece of meat... My wife ordered a Fillet Rare which arrived on a sizzling hot plate still cooking. She immediately asked for a cold plate the steak didnt cook any longer but by the time it arrived the steak was already medium. We werent asked if we wanted a sizzling hot plate at all, which I think should be a question the waitress should ask. The side salad too was strange, the cucumber wasnt crunchy at all and soft, not pleasant. Sadly I wont go back there again and will have to find another steakhouse in the area. I have been going there for almost 20 years but I think their standards have slipped quite badly.More

Been a regular for 12 years. Have now had three consistently bad meals. Now they cant even make chips...seriously for a Steakhouse this is a problem. They are cutting corners, and it shows. The food is cold, I cant even comment on what the butternut...looked like.... but trust me it wasn't pretty. I cannot understand what they are up to? The Front of House are and always have been charming.... but seriously whoever is running or employed in that kitchen needs to up their game. I told them tonight Im not coming back.... RIP .... because if you carry on like this you will be dead and out of business.More
