We almost didn't eat here because we figured it was out of our price range. We asked to see a menu and were pleased to see it was not crazy expensive. The food was good with generous portions, the service was professional, the decor was tasteful, and the bathrooms were some of the nicest we've ever seen.

My wife and I were taken for dinner at The Baron, in Sandton. This venue, in the centre of a large building surprised, as it opened out into pleasant garden surroundings shared with other eateries, however, it gave the whole place a relaxed character. I started off with a very good carpaccio of; Kudu, Springbok and beef, well presented and... More

Over the last two years, the Baron became my Sandton favourite, offering good food, good service, good beer and value for money. Unfortunately, it is now fading (and quite fast) from my favourites list - especially as on both of my most recent visits, despite discussing it in depth with the wait staff, my steak has been overdone. The Baron... More

Visited this venue after work for a quick catch up with friends. They have a good selection of craft beers. Mense has a good variety and prices are reasonable. Had a steak with a cheesy jalapeño sauce. Absolute perfection! Thanks Baron

Great place for beers, had a nice lunch here and the best steak sandwich ever. Very busy for lunch, slow service and very noisey and even in the non-smoking section you can smell the smoke.

Food portions are gigantic, value for money. Had a T-Bone steak with Jalapeno sauce, with mashed potatoes..... I succumbed to Gluttony! LOL.. food was good. The interior was very nice. Sat inside the restaurant as the visit was during winter in Johannesburg. Overall a great place!

Have visited a few times on visits to Joburg with the team from our office - the atmosphere is always good and it's always busy. The staff are helpful and provide good service - the food is pretty good too!

Was greatly dissapointed in the quality of the food, and my colleagues had steak, who all said it was average. Great location and setting, service was also good. The manager came out to hear my complaint and took it on board. Overall; drinks good, location good, food average/poor.

We don't often go to restaurants in the Sandton area however, we decided to give the Baron in Sandton a try on a lazy Saturday afternoon and we were not disappointed.. Staff were friendly and inviting and the service was great. Restaurant also has a great atmosphere that was augmented by the rugby fans that had gathered for pre-test match... More
