Dinner at Cattle Baron in Skukuza March 5, 2017

Unread post by Porridge » Sun Mar 05, 2017 8:08 pm

Jax and I have spent the last 6 months planning and fantasising about our date night at the Cattle Baron after Cricket@Skukuza 2017.

We have just returned to our camp site after possibly the most astonishingly fantastic dining experience of our lives!! We started with fried camembert with melba toast and sweet chilli sauce and while Jax mentioned that it could be hotter, it was very tasty.

For main course, Jax ordered the steak and prawn combo medium rare and I ordered the rare chateaubrIand. What followed was true bliss. The food was perfect, the meat perfectly cooked to order and oh so tender and the flavours of the sauces complimenting the meal brilliantly.

Our waitron, Alice, was attentive and such a pleasure and I'd like to thank her and Cattle Baron in Skukuza for a truly brilliant evening.

PS if you haven't tasted their chateaubrIand yet, make a plan. It's a culinary miracle!!
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.

I am so glad to hear that you had such a super experience. :D

My daughter and I also had a couple of light meals at the Cattle Baron and we were most impressed with both the food and the service. May they go from strength to strength.

I have only had good meals there. I am not really a red meat fan, so I usually have a chicken dish. Last time I was there, it was so hot that I couldn't face my usual chicken dish and I had a huge salad - I can't remember what was in it, but it was super.

Well done Cattle Baron and staff!
