About

Our beef is only the beginning..... Our menu embraces Buenos Aires cuisine, a melting pot of comfort food inspired by Italy and Spain alongside the jewel in Argentina’s crown, its beef. Mouthwatering steaks, burgers and steak sandwiches are joined by a tempting selection of more-ish favourites, each with a distinctive Buenos Aires twist.

Over the last 2-3 months the quality of the cooking has been poor with me sending 2 out of 3 stakes back. Very disappointed and will try the new stakehouse next time.

Good food and nice atmosphere but really slow service! We chose the bottomless brunch but it was hardly free-flowing! Took a long time to order and to get anyone’s attention. Disappointing experience overall but food is good.

Was really impressed with the service. They were a bit late with some of the starters and before we had even registered the problem, they offered us two free bottles of prosecco. Food was top notch and came out speedily. Lovely, quiet restaurant, tucked away from all the hustle and bustle. Would definitely recommend.

The sides of broccoli and maceroni were so bad we had to send them back. The steak was average and therefore over priced. We received the incorrect drink three times.

The waiter was great at dealing with these things and gave us compensation of a free dessert but it was disappointing overall.

Wasn’t overly impressed. Sweet potato fries and husbands skinny fries both seemed really greasy. Bread for a nibble at £4.95 for four thin dry slices of bread seemed excessive. As was £7.95 for 4 small pieces of pork in an overly greasy tampura batter. Steak wasn’t the best I’ve had and came with half a mushroom!! Didn’t have dessert as didn’t want to spend any more!! Wouldn’t come back. Water jug was stainless steel and seemed dirty and water stained.

I had a very well cooked and delicious steak. There are lots of different options on the menu for steak in terms of size and cuts. The sides were tasty and the chips were above average.

Service was friendly but a little slow. The atmosphere was casual but nice, it would be a great place for a family meal or a group of friends. Being in Bath, the atmosphere outside is lovely and is situated away from traffic but within a restaurant cluster - it is a very charming and welcoming area.

The price was good compared to other steak restaurants.

We went for a birthday early evening pre-theatre meal. The restaurant was quiet. We had excellent service and both enjoyed the food immensely. We both had medallions, which melted in your mouth and were cooked to perfection.

Food was good, waitress was charming just kept forgetting things and was quite slow, ie the water, the horseradish, I felt embarrassed having to keep on asking. Apart from that all was good except that they were unaware of the free child food they were promoting on the weekend we went. But sorted the bill out anyway.

We had a really enjoyable evening for our anniversary. My steak sandwich was very tasty but i suspect it had been sat on the servery for a while before coming to the table - steak not piping hot. My wife loved her steak and the wine although a bit pricey was a good standard. Very friendly staff and appreciated the cooled tap water. Taco wrap and humus very good as starters.

Sadly disappointing. My second visit here, first time we had great food.
The starters were really good but the order was wrong. Three of our party had the ultimate steak for £35. And two out of there of us were disappointed with the steak. They took a chunk of the bill but I’d rather have had a decent meal with no errors.
At the prices they are charging I’d expect more from them, such a shame as it could be amazing.

Difficult one... booked for 8.30pm but table wasn’t ready and no room at the bar. Had to sit outside in the cold for 35mins. On the plus side, we were provided blankets and drinks on the house so we happily sat and waited. Our dishes were all great, however, service was appallingly bad and completely different to when we’ve visited before. No cutlery, glasses or attention of any kind. Clearly a very bad day for the restaurant which was a shame.

A Very noisy restaurant, casual ambiance and difficult to hear our conversation.
Food quite good although both of our sirloin steaks were tender but fatty.
Waiter attentive and friendly although he was unsure whether to accept our discount voucher and had to call the manager to sort it out.
All in all a fairly good meal but not as good as expected.

Hadn’t visited CAU in a while and care for lunch with a friend after I booked online in advance.
Greeted promptly and given choice of table to sit at.
Prompt with menu and drinks taken.
Lovely food, could’nt fault it.
I was slightly disappointed as when had been in past the menu had offered really nice non alcoholic cocktails instead of belvoir drinks, I was looking forward to those.
Had nice relaxed lunch and am returning in one week for big work celebration.

Excellent birthday meal - steaks and wine were just as we'd like them to be. Staff were engaging, helpful and knowledgeable about their menu.

We had Lomito and Tira de Ancho plus a bottle of Lorca Graffitti Malbeck. No starters or desserts needed - our appetites and taste buds were completely satisfied.

Restaurant is bright and contemporary.
