Great food and super services. Comprehensive menu and good choice and quality of drinks. Shortage of some desert items

After asking for the manager to show her how dirty the restaurant is, she didn't come back to the table until I confronted her on departure. Her name was Jane, when I asked her why she had not come to see us, she told me...I was not the only customer she was dealing with. There were no more that 15 customers in the restaurant. The restaurant is filthy and the food is shocking, and they need to invest in decent management in order to get things rignt. I work in the industry and it has been ages since I've seen such a terrible product.More

Sirloin was terrible and service mediocre. Not a good advert for Cattle Baron restaurants, unfortunately.

We are holidaying in Mossel Bay and having eaten at other Cattle Barons decide to give this a go .Our first time we found the ribs and wings ok ,That was a special on the night .On our second visit my fillet steak was very...stringy ,not like fillet steak at all ,one of us also had fillet which he enjoyed .Both however were cover in a barbecue sauce and we would prefer that on the side .Two others had chicken dishes which were just about ok . Our third and last visit decided us that it would be the last time .My chicken dish was very average and served with Brie cheese ,very odd.Two had fish n chips which were advertised with peas which didn’t appear ,apparently they had run out of peas!! All of our meals were served on cold plates ,a no no for me . The staff were accommodating but need more experience. Better management is required along with better cooks .More

Not from but wanting good steak/ribs, we came upon CB at the Langeberg Mall. Friendly welcome, passed onto waiter who had 1 other table but was completely overwhelmed. No communication regarding specials yet the tourists behind us received 5 star service. Drinks in drips and...drabs. Ordered 4 big meals and starter, so disappointed. Snails as starter were hard. "Seared" steak in salad was ice cold. Chips tasted like old oil. Ribs were obviously treated before marinade, very grainy. Fish had smell of old oil amd batter. There are limited drinks. No juice, no non alcoholic ciders/beers. Have to up their game to get to a better level...if wantedMore

It's a good restaurant suitable for everyone, with a wide variety of meals on its menu. The restaurant even boast some beef steaks and chicken meals with imported sauces and/or spices. Our family was impressed by the staff's willingness to set up and decorate a...table for our son's birthday, whilst we were on holiday that part of South Africa.More

Plenty of parking available as the restaurant is in a mall. They have weekend specials at slightly reduced prices. No corkage, which is a pleasant surprise. My partner ordered the vegetarian Baron platter, some of the items were not available, but this was explained upfront....I ordered the 600 grams T-bone bleu. Ha mistake, how do you defrost this and make it as requested. You don’t, you serve it freezer cold in the center.More

Decided to give Cattle Baron a chance and was a little disappointed. The sirloin steak was good but arrived cold. Get the basics right for goodness sakes.

You visit the Cattle Baron for the meat dishes and not the views. But if that is what you like, then you will not be disappointed. Recent visitors complained that their meat cuts were overcooked. However, we were three at our table and we all...agreed that the meat portions were perfectly prepared. Maybe a different or new chef? Still, a very enjoyable lunch. Good show Cattle Baron.More

We visit Cattle Baron every year when I visit my parents, it's become a bit of a sentimental place for us. It always had a lovely warming atmosphere, play area for the kids, and for the smokers there was a "smoking bar". On our most...recent visit tonight it was a very different place. I'll give that our waitress Monique was lovely and the steaks were delicious, it however will not be somewhere we rush back to quickly, or ever. The play area has now gone, making it fairly child unfriendly, this is a big thing when it's one of the main reasons you go there. The smoking area has also been done away with, leaving smokers to stand outside in the freezing weather with 1 ashtray between 4 tables. Not great for the older parental. There's not much atmosphere, and for a fairly large place, having only 3 waitresses/waitrons you seem to be sat all on top of each other. Although the steaks and kids ribs were lovely, silly shortcuts have been made like freezing the sour cream for the baked potatoes ( which are now 3 small new potatoes, I think boiled, instead of a lovely crispy baked potato) so when it defrosts it is half water half grainy white mulsh. The prices seem to have gone up but even more annoyingly there are items like certain craft beers still on the menu that they no longer serve as the draught machines were taken with in the sale (apparently a while ago so plenty time to have changed things) . All in all, if you're going to buy a restaurant and change everything that was good about it, or what it was known for, then rather change the name and start fresh to avoid dissapointmemt.More

My boyfriend went to this restaurant about 4 years ago and really wanted to take me there because the service, quality and overall dining experience justified the price tag for a premium steak house. Based on this we decided to book a table and head...there for dinner. However When we arrived, we got there a little bit early and although our table was ready they let us stay at the bar to have a drink before heading over to our table. When we got to the table they had given us a booth and even though the restaurant wasn't busy they still spread the tables out, which we did appreciate. We decided to have a starter each and wine by the glass, along with a steak each for our mains. The food was nothing to brag about. Our steaks were over cooked and a tip if you want a medium steak, for example, order it medium rare. The service wasn't terrible, it wasn't a busy night but the waiter could have been more attentive. We even had a waitress who was covering the section on the other side of the restaurant come over to check on us and bring some of our dishes out too us. We ordered some baked cheesecakes to take away. The cheesecake again were nothing special. Overall it wasn't bad dining experience but the price is defiantly not worth the quality, our bill come to just under 1000 rand and if your looking for an easy steak meal you might want to consider Spur instead, a lot cheaper and you know exactly what you are getting.More

I visited this Cattle Baron 2 years ago and the service was poor that day to say the least but at least the food was fine. Today my father asked me to take him there since he was looking fo a good steak. I ordered...a 400g rump medium rare. When I got my steak it was just under well done so I called the manager and he agreed that it was not at all medium rare and and closer to well done. So he said he will give me a "little discount" (his own words) so thank you so much for the 14% discount on an awful over cooked streak. I saw that as an insult. Keep your steak in the future...More

That’s a great idea except when you don’t see your waiter from food delivery until end of meal it’s hard to watch a fillet go cold whilst you wait for someone to take an interest. It would have been nice to meet the owners... More
