About CAU Bristol

Many years ago, we fell in love with vibrancy of Buenos Aires, a city where cosmopolitan sophistication collides with an irresistibly chaotic energy. It's a beguiling, emotional and all embracing place to be. When we started Cau, our vision was to capture that spirit in a restaurant that would fit right into the heart of Palermo, Buenos Aires.

Our menu embraces Buenos Aires cuisine, a melting pot of comfort food inspired by Italy and Spain alongside the jewel in Argentina's crown, it's beef. Mouthwatering steaks, burgers and steak sandwiches are joined by a tempting selection of more-ish favorites, each with a distinctive Buenos Aires twist. Drop in for some sharing plates and a beer over lunch or savour one of our speciality cuts and a bottle of Malbec over dinner...just don't forget to leave room for a corn flake ice cream sundae.
Trust us on that one.

Really enjoyed my first visit to CAU, meeting my friend for a catch up. We were placed in a cozy booth raised up above the kitchen so we could take in the ambience.
We went for the ‘bottomless buffet’ lunch deal, which I would highly recommend. You are presented with a sharing platter, followed by your choice of main. These were limited to 8 options, however after the platter we didn’t feel we needed much more to eat anyway!
The service was excellent, and part of the lunch deal was to keep having prosecco brought to your table, which felt quite special. We’d assumed this would be limited, however we were pleasantly surprised that it just kept coming! Needless to say, we had a great time and would definitely visit again.

Amazing steak and really great service.
Only downside was the seating we were placed wasn’t very comfortable and the place felt quite cold. Considering it’s november extra heating would be good or at least a seat not so close to the door!
Over all, a really nice evening.

Words can not describe the quality of the food and also the service that we received from CAU in Bristol. I was thinking about the food the next day.

Great service and food what more can you say.

Love Cau and everything about it. Meat is exceptional, starters tasty and kids menu excellent value.

Didn't love my after eight drink though - expected something a bit more special than coke and spirit with a mint leaf!

Food was fantastic, service was very good too. Could maybe have been a little bit more Argentinian with the music and maybe pictures of Buenos Aires on the wall.
A little bit on the expensive side but it was worth it.

We absolutely love it here. The steak was cooked to perfection. My partner, who isn't a massive steak fan, loved it. The waiter was lovely, giving recommendations and had good knowledge of the different cuts of steak.

I would definitely recommend CAU!
