I walked into the Cattle Baron Grill & Bistro without a Reservation and although they were pretty much full for lunch, I was lucky to be given a table. The Restaurant itself is beaufitully laid out with different eating areas, and with very classy decorations and finishes for a Steakhouse. However, today my review is all about the Lamb Rump Steak. I can say without a doubt, that it was the best piece of lamb I have eaten in my entire life. Yes, maybe the stunning Restaurant, the excellent service and beautiful red wine all influenced my decision, but, man oh man, believe me, that lamb was so good I am still dreaming about it, two weeks later. It made me think of President Trumps visit to the Royal Family this year, and I know the main course was also Lamb, and I wonder to this day if their Lamb was as good as the one I ate at the Cattle Baron. I cant wait to visit this Restaurant again, only to feast on this dish.

Cattle Baron are one of the best Restaurants in Paarl with friendly staff and Superb Food to choose from
The atmosphere are wonderful and you will forget that there are other people around you - each table will get special attention from their waiter and they will tell you about specials and any meal recommended if you ask for that I only experienced good times there - Celebrations, Family Birthdays or outings with friends - Just the Best!!

We had lunch there and the location is very nice. Also the food was very good. A little more expensive then outside the park. Unfortunately the staff was a bit confused with some orders. Next time they do better.

Brilliant, comfortable and affordable. The Burger special never disappoints. The food was out in less than 10 minutes after we arrived. Very friendly and welcoming service.

When ever you feel a bit lazy to cook on a Monday, this is a great option.

Great to do in a big group of friends as well. The fact that there is no corkage on wine is an even bigger bonus!
