Our Menu
Our menu inspiration comes from the vibrant city of Buenos Aires which takes the best influences from Italian, Spanish & Argentine cuisine.

Perfect Argentine Steak
Our beef comes direct from La Pampa region of Argentina where cattle rearing is taken as seriously as religion. Our dedicated herds of Aberdeen Angus have a natural, free roaming life and are 100% grass-fed providing flavoursome meat with beautiful texture.
Our beef arrives perfect for the coal grill remaining tender for serving. We take the finest cuts and the beef is wet aged for at least 30 days to bring out the subtle flavour of the meat without losing any of its juiciness.

All our steaks are served with confit mushrooms, chimichurri & a choice of thin, hand cut or sweet potato chips or a mixed salad.

Waitress we had was very nice but there was an incident with the cooker which meant a delay in the main course.
No one came over to us to explain and when they did they had assumed that the manager had spoken to us.
We didn’t get any drinks etc whilst we waited.
The starters were very nice
We got the gnocchi on the menu and it was nothing like the description. I don’t know if this was a reflection on what had happened in the kitchen.
We asked for sauces and got told the waiter will find one when he can.
Thought it was overpriced for what we actually got.

I think there should be a few more options for beers as theres only one choice and maybe a couple on draught apart from that great place for food

I thought the meal and particularly the drinks were overpriced. If I'm going to spend £100 on a meal for 2 I expect something special, but Cau provided me with a meal that I thought was very ordinary.

Visited CAU Liverpool on Saturday 23rd June. Food was a disgrace and service was poor. We had been to CAU in Amsterdam and loved it but the experience was completely different to that in liverpool. Very disappointed especially as it was for a special occasion. Will not be going back.

Wouldn’t recommend, ordered a shared taco dish for starter, waiter asked if we wanted plates and these never came. Upon ordering my main of sirloin steak I asked if I could have salad with it and was told it was of extra charge, when the food arrived salad was on the plate as well as a side salad I paid extra for. I also asked for a glass of water and this never came through out the entire meal and I left before receiving this. Definitely not worth the money.

Came to Cau on 20/06/2018 with friend to celebrate an occasion.

We enjoyed rump steak and sirloin steak.
The sirloin was cooked perfectly and was particularly flavoursome. Food overall was of a reasonably high quality. Very pleased.

The food was amazing, it came so quick as well as being great value for money. I had two massive pieces of steak and my friend had the same cooked to perfection, it’s also in the deal you get a free side. The food came so fast. The service was amazing, waitress was so kind and attentive and knew the menu inside-out. Overall a great experience

Fab food enjoyed by all in party. Slow service at start, misunderstanding between waiters. As soon as realisation kicked in our waiter was very attentive and helpful with recommendations. A very enjoyable family celebration.

Steak was over cooked and Mac n Cheese was bland for cheese because it had an overwhelming garlic taste... when did Mac n Cheese start having garlic in it. £149 after 30% taken off the bill. Won’t be going for my birthday next year

Me and my boyfriend have been to CAU before as we’ve never had a bad meal. Unfortunately, our visit this time was less than satisfying. Our table was booked at 2015 and we weren’t seated until 2035. The service was very slow and didn’t take out order for some time. I asked for my steak to be cooked rare and it came more like medium/well, if I hadn’t have been so hungry I would have complained. Really disappointed!

Took advantage of a discount offer over the net. Decent steaks, bit pricey otherwise. Not very busy so it lacked atmosphere

We ate in this restaurant while visiting Liverpool. The staff seemed under pressure and short staffed. Our steaks came out luke warm my friend sent hers back and her sauce also as was cold. They gave her a new steak, sauce and chips which was good. when paying the bill there was a £6.00 tip to be added if we wanted and when they came with the card machine they put the tip included with our price but service was very poor we decided not to. I think you should let the customer decide whether to tip or not in future not just assume they will pay it every time.

The starters were overcooked so as to be hollow. English mustard was provided instead of the French mustard requested

Ordered what was apparently their most tender cut of fillet beef. The beef was chewy, fatty and served rare almost blue when I'd asked for medium. The sides were average and waiter rude. Wouldn't recommend.

Be careful, the meau doesnt state all the coats. for example with the meat the waiter asked if i wanted sauce and chips i said yes but he didnt tell me it was £3 or £4 extra. When 5 people ask for the same, thinking its free it comes to £20 extra but the chips and sauce were extreamly nice and at the end you can roll for 50% or 30% off next time you come !

Had us waiting for 45 minutes for a pre-booked table for 2 on a Saturday evening. No excuses from arrogant staff. Eventually got a table right next to the staffs prep table, with high traffic of servers running forth and back. Food way below expected level. Will definitely not return, and will not recommend for any occasion.

Ate here on a Saturday night. It was very busy and had a real buzz. Had to wait 30 mins to be seated despite booking, but there was a decent bar area to get a drink and staff were apologetic, offering us some bread while waiting. Once seated table service was prompt, friendly and efficient. Food was great. The steaks were amazing - nice cuts and perfectly cooked. Really enjoyed coming here.

Food was average, way overpriced! Presentation was horrendous, I ordered a steak and literally had a piece of meat thrown onto a plate, that was it. Chips tasted like cardboard so my boyfriend couldn’t eat his dinner properly. Sweet potato fries were cold so had to wait for new ones. First time we’ve tried it but we will not be coming here again. Very disappointed for the price we paid.
