Visited on recommendation at the weekend for my partners birthday. Wasn't disappointed. Had a fantastic window table on 3rd floor. Service was fantastic and steak was great. Now back in UK will certainly visit one in Birmingham x

Great atmosphere and great menu! Our waiter was attentive and kind. They even brought me a birthday cake The only negative was that I ordered a cocktail and it had ice an inch over the top of the glass meaning I basically had 5 sips of the drink and it was gone. I don’t like that they filled it all the way w ice and left little room for the actual cocktail. I would return however and recommend to a friend!

Perfect for our final night in Amsterdam, central to most attraction, everything we ordered was to die for and at such a reasonable price. Like most places in Amsterdam service was a teeny bit forgetful and slow but I've come to realise that is part of the charm. Will defo visit again next time I'm in Amsterdam.

I have been to CAU three times now, and each time, it has been a very nice experience. The wait staff are friendly and provide good service. The food is excellent. Try the salto claricot (sangria type drink). We will definitely continue eating at CAU.

Absolutely fantastic food and service was great too. Really recommend it for meat-eaters; I had a fillet steak which was grilled to perfection and the wine list was good for a range of budgets /tastes.

In a city largely devoid of quality, reasonably priced restaurants, CAU is one of the rare exceptions. We will absolutely return in the future.

We booked CAU Amsterdam for the first night we arrived, following a recommendation from someone who had been there when they were in Amsterdam. The service was excellent, everyone was friendly and very attentive. We each had different cuts of steak with a side of triple cooked chips and onion rings to share. The food was DELICIOUS and we had a nice bottle of rosé with our meal. Would 100% reccomend for a beautiful meal in Amsterdam.

One of the best restaurants I have been to on my travels. For a chain it has really good quality food, at a very reasonable price (I recommend the fish stew, or any steak).
I have dined at Cau in London and now Amsterdam, and have found both to be excellent. Any future trips away, if there's a Cau nearby, I'm booking it.
Ps, Cau, open a branch in Preston.

My sister and I visited Amsterdam last weekend, and made a reservation to eat at CAU on a Friday evening. We were seated straight away, and couldn't have been better looked after. The service was incredible and the restaurant was extremely busy, and the service did not falter. The food was beautifully cooked, and the wine list not too pricey, and the barmen were very helpful in finding us a bottle we liked. I was celebrating my birthday which I had stipulated when booking on open table, and received a complimentary cheesecake dessert and a rendition of Happy Birthday! I will definitely be returning when I next visit...which hopefully won't be too long.
