    Absolutely amazing food and service! The best meal we have ever had, meat was cooked to perfection and everything had so much flavour, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Amazing service and great value for money. We will most certainly be visiting again in the future :)

    We had an amazing meal at CAU! Everything was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert. The steaks were amazing, cooked to perfection and sides were also great. The wine list had a great variety. We could not have been happier with our meal! So happy we went back the next night!

    Excellent service and great food. Make reservations or you will not get in. He turned away at least 20 people who wanted to eat there without reservations. Waitress and host were awesome people

    i have eaten at Cau many times over the years. we had a surprised when our steak was not cooked correctly, and the tiro de ancho was not butchered properly with a sinew strand running the length of the steak. when we pointed this out to the waitress, she acted immediately and prepared a new steak. she apologized, told us to please wait and enjoy our sides, the steak would be out immediately and with fresh sides. the delay was minimal, and our meal was perfect in every way. this is the kind of accountability and dedication to a high standard that will keep me always coming back to Cau. as a matter of fact, we did return two nights later for more! thank you for always doing such a good job, and acting quickly when anything is less than perfect.

    Starters were very disappointing. Scotch egg was over cooked and was dry. The popcorn chicken was chewy. The restaurant was too hot. Tables were too close together. Toilets are in the basement. Steaks were excellent as was the pancakes to finish

    The steak special was definitely enough volume and grams of meat however it was on the tough side and had a liquid gas taste to it.

    Lovely food only problem we had was where we were sat, it was behind a massive metal pillar so we couldn’t see anything going on outside and felt rather secluded. Was disappointing considering I’d booked this restaurant months in advance.

    Vacationing from the US, our last evening! First steak dinner in 2 weeks and we enjoyed it very much. Sides came in cast iron crocks brimming with goodness. We had roasted mushrooms and baby potatoes with chives to compliment our ribeye and medallions of beef. Highly recommended!

    The wait staff were excellent. The ribeye was very tasty and a huge portion. The coleslaw was too sweet, and the salad had gooped up dressing on it. Ambience was kinda' meh. And it's located in a really transient & touristy part of Amsterdam. Still, I'd go again because the steak was good.

    Me and my friend had an excellent dinner at the CAU. A man served us named Mimo from Egyptian guy who already working 18years at the CAU which is already impressive but how he explained about the wines, beefs and all the selections were fantastic and educational! Thank you for great experience, and will be back with my family someday soon :)
