We had to wait ages for the starter which then came up with the main. We was then told the starter would be taken off the bill but it wasn’t. Food was lovely but this was very disappointing

A wonderful bustling experience where one and all can enjoy a nibble of the best Argentinian food in Amsterdam. The atmosphere was vibrant, multiplex. From brimming bars to food-filled tables, there is something for everyone.

Disappointed that we turned up for our table that was booked for 8.30pm to be told to go and wait outside as our table wasn’t ready yet and they would come out and take a drinks order. We weren’t given any menus and had to go back in ourselves to ask for these. We finally got seated at 8.55pm. The service once seated wasn’t too bad, there was only one mix up which was a missing side order however this was dealt with and the food overall was good.

This is my go-to place in Amsterdam after a long flight from the USA. The TIRA DE ANCHO is tasty and full of lusious marbling. The side dishes are filling and the wine by the glass is reasonably priced. It's a little dark inside but adds to the overall ambiance.

Expensive for what it was. The food was average, all protein required you to order sides and sauce separately. The burger option was average - again requiring you to order extra fillings at an additional cost.
Would not recommend.

OK, so the tables were small and packed closely together. We arrived at an odd time, too late for lunch and too early for dinner. We weren't in the mood for steaks and this was a steak house. We were prepared for mediocrity. What a surprise that the salmon was grilled to absolute perfection, moist, tender and beautifully presented. The steak aroma never got into the fish. And the service was excellent--prompt,courteous and helpful. It was so good we came back and ordered the very same thing the second day and it was just as good.

CAU was great - good Brazilian food in the middle of Amsterdam. Steaks and a nice red wine list...

Having gone to some trouble to ask for a steak that was pink in the middle - so either medium or medium rare, depending on the restaurants interpretation, I was very disappointed to get a well done steak.
The waiting staff were great and offered to cook another steak (but that puts you out of sync with everyone else on the table) or reduce the bill which I accepted.
However, the evening is spoiled.
I really think that the careless chef should come out and have to see and hear the outcome of their actions otherwise there are no real consequences for them. Cooking a steak properly is not that hard but you do need to pay attention. Customers are paying you to do that.

The steak was mediocre, the ambience was very noisy and the restaurants decoration was very basic! I really thought this would be different than all the other basic argentinian restaurants in Amsterdam, which by the way, are also part pizzerias, but no, this was exactly the same, but for the fancy name it has. Really disappointed!

Very friendly and accommodating staff - attentive and happy to help. Food was excellent. Problem with one of our starters - it came about ten minutes after the others, but otherwise all good. If you’re looking for a quality meal on a night out then this is your place.

Not my first time there, and not the last. My steak was good, my friend got one a bit overdone, but it was swiftly replaced. Winelist is fine, asthetics good, service great. Lively place with good seating. Not a quiet place but I was there on a Friday night and it suited me fine.
Don't miss the Causlaw.
My group of four was not rushed, but I noticed the staff pushed the next table of two a little bit. It would have made me annoyed.
It is a very safe choice for a great night.

I took my mum to CAU Amsterdam for dinner while we were in Amsterdam on a Mothers day weekend break. I couldn't recommend it enough, the most amazing Steaks cooked perfectly accompanied with great sides, nice drinks menu and the staff were lovely.
Will defo visit again next time I am in Amsterdam!

Quite simply one of the best cuts of beef I’ve ever had.
Restaurant is nice and is over three floors. Decor is modern and comfortable but nothing amazing. However I don’t really go to restaurants for just the decor.

Tried the Lomito cut on our waiters suggestion and was not disappointed! Very succulent and non-fatty cut. Sides were also of a high quality.

Our waiter seemed to know exactly how to describe and more importantly differentiate between the options which is how I ended up with Lomito. The portion size is good and didn’t leave you wanting any more.

Prices are higher than other restaurants but I’m happy to pay for quality - especially with meat.

Will be my top choice when in Amsterdam next.

Booked this when I was planning a trip to Amsterdam with my boyfriend and I chose this restaurant to go to for his birthday. It did not disappoint - our female waitress was friendly and helpful, could not fault her. Our food came pretty quick so we were pretty impressed with the service. Another couple complained though as a lot of their sides didn’t arrive with their steaks. As it was my boyfriend’s birthday, the staff were more than happy to decorate his dessert! Would definitely go back but make sure you book as it gets very busy!

We were in amsterdam for the weekend for a short break, we wanted a nice restaurant to dine in for our final evening. We found it rather difficult to find such places after looking on the internet and ‘top 10 restaurants in dam’ etc and came across this restaurant. The host was fabulous and very welcoming, the food was delicious and we really enjoyed ourselves. Absolutely loved the interior design, and the steaks were beautifully cooked and the staff were friendly and attentive, thanks!

Waited ages for our starters (4 of us) then waited again for our mains. Starters were ok but for a "steakhouse" the cuts of meat were decidedly average. 3 of us ordered sirloins the other party member had chicken skewers and he left half of it as it was very dry. Victims of their own success trying to get too many people in and not looking for repeat custom.
