Description: The Cattle Baron in Paarl is a modern, streamlined and efficient operator. The store is owned by Franco Adams, operator within the group for more than 18 years. 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.

My husband and I have tried various cattle barons throughout South Africa recently whilst travelling and the food we had in the Paarl branch was hands down the best! The steaks were cooked absolutely perfectly, the service was wonderful and the whole evening was great. We went on a Monday night quite early and the restaurant was packed! So I would recommend booking. We can’t wait to return.

Location off the main road with plenty parking available. Very intimate venue and lovely decor,also enjoyed the open kitchen. Not a very big restaurant therefore will suggest to book in advance. The menu is quite detailed and comprehensive but will suggest you must try the steak dishes which are made to perfection. Staff are friendly and very effecient offering great service.Prices are reasonable to expensive but the quality of food and service makes up for that.

Do not know what the fuss is about at this restaurant. We were excited to get a table and try out this place. The chef/butcher or who ever he is, came and show you all the different cuts of raw meat of what you can order. Look and sounds impressive. My husband ordered a rump steak and me a sirloin. His steak was not what we expect of this restaurant. It was chewy and inedible. Why ask to take it back, because with their reputation, it should be perfect the first time. Pricy as well so, we decided, best to buy your own meat and braai at home....
