Great food, nice restaurant and helpful staff. Ideal location in the centre of Cambridge.
The food was lovely, service was great . The steak was cooked perfectly .
We were celebrating a special occasion which I stated on the booking but this wasn’t acknowledged .
Another very good meal and prompt, excellent service.
Food was terrible, probably the worst steaks ever. Very poor and will not go again.
Quite expensive steak but very good. Good service and good in for finding space last minute and late
We arrived and was seen straight away that was good we was then sat upstairs next to a group of about 30 women on a hen do or birthday party! So Louis could not hear yourself think let alone try hold down a conversation. Asked to move we was told they just paying the bill. By the time our food had come out they still hadn’t gone and there was no other tables to move to as requested! Very dissappointed! Although the food was good very disappointed in the service as meals where mixed up and being that my girlfriend does not like medium rare at all and she was given that and I was given hers well done. Not impressed and when. It came to the bill we was not happy that we had been charged for double drinks when asked for singles and for what the total bill came to was not worth What we had ordered very disappointed in restaurant as a whole would not recommend or visit again!!!
Went to Cau for dinner while on a girls night out. Our waitress helped us navigate through the menu, giving recommendations and suggestions. The food was really good and suitably filling. It’s a reasonably modern restaurant and quite noisy, however we enjoyed it. Would be nice to have a couple more veggie options. I realise it’s a steak restaurant however if a veggie is accompanying someone it’s nice to have a few more tasty options.
The food was delicious and the service prompt and friendly
Interesting food and friendly cool vibe - really helpful staff
Good option for a quick meal before the theatre. Great casual dining but perhaps a little pricey for what it was despite the food being very good. Nice to have ‘proper’ napkins but felt like a mismatch given the very small tables & general causal ambience.
Expected toilets to be spotless at the beginning of evening service but they weren’t - needs improvement & didn’t give a good impression.
Food was perfect although cost is slightly over the standard I would expect... that said the place is exceptional. Well Worth a visit for a special occasion.
Booked a table here for after my daughter's graduation. We were seated in a private booth which was amazing - felt that we were in our own little dining space (really helped one of our party join in conversations as has difficulty hearing in loud restaurants). Really nice modern interior. We ate a selection of starters and mains and every single thing was cooked perfectly and delicious. Service was prompt and we had a super waitress who really made the evening. Can't recommend highly enough - will return when next back in Cambridge.
Informal dinner with friends. The staff were great and food was delicious. Highly recommended.
Well worth a visit. Great burgers and steaks too. Spicy squid app is a must.
Came with friends for a day in Cambridge and we booked a pre show meal. From the minute we got there the staff were friendly and served us quickly. The food was superb and everyone in our party, including a vegetarian, said they enjoyed the food ( and wine)! Will definitely be back and would recommend to everyone.
Had a beautiful steak with half a mushroom - ordered the side of mushrooms, glad I did! Had the pancakes for pud - wow, yummy and a good portion. Lovely evening with hubby and although quite a noisy restaurant the waitress was lovely. Would definitely go back.
I had a 9oz ribeye and it was the best steak I have ever eaten!
Our only negative was there was no drinks on tap. Only bottles of coke, beer etc.
Always impressed with CAU - food, staff and atmosphere - first class !
We went there for Father's day as hubby is a big fan of steaks. The Chef's cut steak is flavoursome and juicy and would recommend it. The classic cut is similar to what you will find from other steak house. The waitor asked us if we would like a Father's Day cocktail on special offer. The price is like any other cocktails on the menu so it's not any 'special'. Thought this was a bit sneaky how it was sold to us but hubby liked the drink so that's acceptable. The (size of the pinch) salad that came with the steak didn't look very fresh. There was a quarter of a portabello mushroom that came with the steak, thought they could be a bit more generous than that and for that reason, didn't think it's value for money.
My husband’s very First fathers day, amazing food and service!
Was recommended by a local and must admit it was fantastic.
The waitress was excellent and when asked she went through all the options, asked us our personal likes then recommended to suit.
Starters, main course and dessert were excellent quality, really tasty and brilliant value.
Me and my husband went to CAU for my birthday at lunchtime mid week as we had the day off work. The set menu was very reasonable (£12.50) for 2 courses and the service was excellent, and food delicious. They even gave me a little birthday cheese cake and sang me happy birthday. So cute! This is only the second time we’ve been to this restaurant but would definitely recommend it!
Delicious food and excellent service! You must try the pancakes, recommended by the waitress... very tasty!
The food is A-Mazing, couldn't fault it. The service was great, attentive without being too much, helpful when some of the party couldn't make up their mind on what to go for, offered suggestions for drinks etc. This is the second time we have visited and both have been the same., the first just two of us and the next for a family meal. We will be back and would recommend!
Good food. Beef is very good. Busy place with modern decor. Staff very friendly and service good. Great place for a casual meal with friends.
Best steak any of us have had in a long time, and I loved the soundtrack!
Lovely birthday lunch for my Dad’s birthday.
Good food, on the pricey side, can be quite packed and noisy at times, but worth it overall.
We have eaten here on a number of occasions but the quality and particularly the taste of the steak seems to have dropped. The meal was therefore rather disappointing. I also disapprove of the automatic inclusion of a 10% service charge which I failed to read on the bill and was only pointed out when I asked if I could include it on my cc transaction. Grateful for the honesty of the server who pointed it out. Patrons should feel they want to leave a gratuity and not be taken for granted. I shall not eat here again.
Another very good meal - this restaurant is one of the most consistent we know in its welcome, high quality food and general liveliness.
Excellent meal as usual - timings perfect & very helpful & friendly waitress :)
Definitely a “different” atmosphere to traditional restaurants, lacking a cosy feel. Food was decent and small portions, the service however was excellent.
The music was too loud and the playlist was pretty awful, I even heard Eminem playing... in a restaurant?
Very friendly/efficient service. Extremely good food. Good quality for price xx
Fantastic food, great quality and good service. We went for my husbands birthday and weren’t disappointed. They even added a candle to his dessert. Would definitely go again.
Really enjoyable dinner out. Service was outstanding with good knowledge and recommendations of the wine. Food was enjoyable but nothing outstanding. Good for a casual dinner out
This is my fifth visit - all with different people. Up to its usual standard of steak. Recommended.
Turned up early for our table, this was not an issue. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable, arranged for us to have a large steak to share as it will cook better. It was cooked perfectly.
As a native of Argentina these were very good steaks. Certainly among the best I have eaten outside Argentina. Sadly the wine list doesn’t match up to the beef, uninspiring and in the 3x+ retail price range. Desserts were limited but good. In short, go for the steak. It is lively /loud, so not the setting for a romantic meal.
The go-to place in Cambridge when you feel like a good steak (and delicious milkshake).
Very pleasant experience. We really liked the atmosphere and ambiance. The service was top notch and the food was rather good as well. We would definitely dine there again.
