We went for dinner on Saturday at a different establishment, but was so unimpressed with the level of service and cockiness ('we have burgers, steak and fish, don't ask for anything else'), that we left and went to Cattle Baron - we were so impressed!...More

It was a cold, wet evening and we were in the mood for a good meal. Whilst perhaps the restaurant was lacking in ambience, the great steaks and good service more than made up for it.

Arriving late on the day, tired and hungry in Hermanus prompted us to find good food and great service. The steaks did not disappoint and with suggestions from the competent waiter we chose an excellent wine to compliment our dinner.

Cattle Baron is a chain restaurant in the central square area. A pleasant enough welcome. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy and the waitress took our order promptly. The steaks also arrived promptly and were excellent. In fact some of the best we had in South...More

The only steakhouse in Hermanus situated in the heart of the village on Lemm's Corner / Harbour Square. The Cattle Baron Grill & Bistro aims to be the place for friendship, great food, a relaxed atmosphere and great service. Hand cut steaks and specializing in Chateaubriand fillet, well matured rumps and sirloin are simply the best in town. Ribs and seafood, salads and desserts, great coffee and a delightful wine menu featuring many local greats. All the favourite specialities are made with passion and flair. Try the Stuffed Mushrooms for Starters, tasty deep-fried white buttons filled with a delicate mixture of cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley and sherry and served with our unique tartar sauce. For a healthy option, have the Beetroot and Butternut Salad, a delicious mix of grilled beetroot, roasted butternut, feta cheese, rocket and toasted onions. For mains, try the Grilled Sole, brushed with a choice of lemon or garlic butter or for meat lovers, have the Bar-B-Que Spare Ribs - pork loin ribs flame-grilled with our famous BBQ rib basting (500g or 1kg) or the Chateaubriand - fillet flambéed with brandy and served with mushroom sauce and Cattle Baron béarnaise sauce. A designated Cafe Bar area is available - sip a local draft beer while watching TV. Value for money buffet lunches served on selected days.
