The food was delicious and the service was polite, however there was a small problem with our receipt. Despite not ordering any drinks, water was brought to our table and poured into glasses. We assumed this to be 'on the house', as we had not requested it. At the end of the meal, a rather expensive bottle of water (5€<) appeared on our bill. The item was removed from the total price upon complaint, but a bad impression remains.

The location was great, but the food was moderate. Our steak was over cooked although we specified medium. This place seems to be in high demand, so perhaps it was just an off night.

LOVED the food. And we are from Texas so we know steak. It’s the best steak place we’ve had in Europe so far!

Disappointing meal. Unprofessional server, noisy, bad lighting, steaks were OK, but that's about it. This wasn't the place to have a nice, leisurely dinner.

The food was really good, especially for being right in the middle of the tourist trap. The service is ok and a little on the slower side. The sticky wings and the shrimp chicharon are a must for appetizers. For dinner I always go with the chicken Caesar salad and the Fiancé goes for the filet and chips with a side of peppercorn sauce. Over all the food is great.

Mooie locatie, goed eten, goed vlees en mooie porties! echter het personeel spreek geen fatsoenlijk Nederlands en is erg opdringerig. we konden amper op de kaart kijken, of de bediening was al 3 keer langsgekomen om te vragen of wij al een keuze hadden kunnen maken.

Food was very good, good value for money. However we were sat on the top floor and it was boiling. The couple on the table next to us asked for them to cool it down but no changes were made. This made the meal rushed and uncomfortable, however the food was very nice so as a whole we enjoyed it.

Service a bit slow. Asked for medium steak, it was more medium rare but manager happily sent back to be cooked more which I appreciated. Ordered a few sides - very plain. No taste whatsoever. Steak not worth the price as it comes itself.

The place looks beautiful, and the meat was delicious! Really tender and tasteful. The starter was quite disappointing, we ordered tempura shrimps which were described as crunchy and they were completely soft, almost transparent tempura cover. The desserts were nice, nothing spectacular. We would go back for the meat and skip the rest.

Would have given 5 stars. Considering ee ate there 3 nights in a row. But one thing really irked us on all 3 occasions. Greed. It's the first restaurant any of us have been in where we are asked if we want the change brought back to the table when paying the bill. Every night. No matter how small or large the change would be. Appalling policy. CAU didnt really look that in need of a few euro. Pity, as everything else was good.

Lovely meal at Cau on Saturday evening, food was great value at a reasonable price. Service did let it down. Took a while to order food and drinks had to grab a waiters attention. Drinks took agers to arrive had to remind someone. waitress took our plates away whilst we were eating our last mouthful as though they were desperate to get the table back at 10pm? Little confusing
But was a lovely meal and will hopefully be back

The service was excellent, the host met us at the door and introduced us to a waiter who directed us to our table which was upstairs (and where I would prefer to sit). The service fast and attentive but not smothering. The food wast fantastic, all four of us had steaks and each was cooked perfectly.
We shared a bottle of the Argentinian La Linda Cabernet Sauvignon which was beautiful.
The only thing I can comment on is that the waitress took away our wine bottle from the table before it was empty, however when we mentioned it she was extremely apologetic and of course returned the bottle.
