FoodBlog – Cape Town Restaurants: Cattle Baron – Canal Walk
During the American Civil War while the farmers where all away fighting to their cause a new breed of business was born – The Cattle Barons. These men would move millions of unattended Texan cattle to Railheads for transport to various market places. They received huge amounts of money which stabilized the war-torn Texan economy.
Now that you now a bit of history, lets continue with info about the actual restaurant...
Cattle Baron Canal Walk can seat 230 guests and has a fully enclosed smoking area. You can also sit outside – an area that overlooks the pavilion area - a perfect venue during the summer.
Their most famous steak is their Chateaubriand – juicy and tender, cooked to perfection. They also serve excellent Calamari steaks and there are also many other choices for vegetarians. So whatever your preferences are, Cattle Baron will not disappoint!

Poor food, service on Christmas day !!
Our children from overseas chose to take all of us out for Christmas dinner at The Cattle Baron. Silver fold our tables with no table clothes, just saucers with white serviettes and crackers thrown on tables. Starter: yellow lettuce barely any tomato & Cucumber. Buffet- Small selection - awful rice! over cooked gammon (like bacon) fatty curry meat (barely meat) burnt chicken chunks in thick Oil! etc.. NO salads, fish or bread/rolls on offer? Pudding: cold malva pudding with boxed custard (other tables got ice cream) DO NOT RECOMMEND!! other people in the que were complaining too ( they had not been offered starters!) Time for this place to close its doors we were so embarressed that we had taken our visitors to eat there!!
Please tell us and all visitors of FoodBlog your opinion about this restaurant.
