My husband and I came to Cattle Barron and decided on a starter platter which serves 3-4. It was so amazing! The stuffed mushrooms were so delicious! As well as the venison carpaccio and calamari with tartar sauce. The starter was such a winner!

The waiter was friendly and on point. The food perfect as always. We went for lunch and had a very relaxing experience. It is one of the few places that does the perfect surf and turf. Well done!

Franco will be the face of the business.The Cattle Baron caters for the discerning businessman and the family dinner. We also contribute to the community by providing a Senior Citizens lunch buffet at reasonable prices. Sunday's we have a family open day with a choice of a la carte or our famous buffet with a variety of delicious roasts. Renowned for our mouth-watering steaks - the secret of our success lies in the preparation of our meat. Our perfectly aged, grain-fed beef is wet-aged ensuring our steaks are consistently juicy, tender and full of flavour. At Cattle Baron we offer a unique menu with simple, home-cooked dishes that reflect traditional elements of food. We pride ourselves on delivering to our customers elegant dining and unsurpassed standards of service in relaxed surroundings.
