Service a little inattentive both for drinks and the bill, music too loud for a Sunday brunch - but food delicious.

Outstanding gin tonics in happy hour! They were delicious. The onion and goats cheese flatbread was ok but too for my taste too dry. The medallions were nicely presented and nice. The waiters were very mindful with my friend’s dietary requirements.

Eat here on a regular basis
Disappointed with my last visit as even after sending the steak back it was returned still Roxane back not done to my specifications
Manager then offered to issue a fresh steak
but I had no time to waste waiting to as my hubby was already half way through his dinner
I are a few bites so was not charged without even asking to the customer service was good
Just disappointed that I went away hungry
Just to note the Manager and waiter were fab and did try

Was Ok. My husband had the steak which was good. I had the fish and asked to change the gnocchi to fresh fries. The answer was no, not paying extra at those prices! Fish was also good but wouldn’t go back. Only two others in restaurant at lunch time on a Friday Wimbledon week so I think that says it all.

Had a wonderful time. The managers are thoughtful and treat you really well. We had the most amazing waiter who was always around when needed but left us alone and didn’t keep asking us how the food was. He also suggested what we should eat and drink which was great. The cocktails are lovely and reasonably priced.

Food is always very good

On the last 2 occasions we have visited the service could have been better.

The waiters didnt seem to know who had ordered what.

One lot if chips were cold and had to be sent back.

Not all drinks were captured on the order as the waiter didnt do this in a consistant order. He said he would come back to drinks after we had ordered all the food
..but did not

The waiter said he would feed this back but seemed empty promise.

I celebrated my 24th Birthday at Cau Wimbledon with my boyfriend and family, we all thoroughly enjoyed our starters and mains. Everything from the service to the food was amazing with great attention to detail. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to everyone, so all in all it was a great experience.
Only one thing is that we couldn't find a disabled toilet for the baby changing area for my niece!

Very disappointing. Food was very poor quality, especially the burger which was small and unimpressive for an Argentinean restaurant. Nothing was prepared freshly so food was cold and heavily fried. The wrong order was brought to our table so we had to eat at different times - this was blamed on business of staff but restaurant was half full. £82 for 2 adults, 1 child. Extortionate for fast food chain.

This was my 2nd visit to CAU this year. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. Both times i came with family and friends. I have teenage children who found something they liked. The staff were polite friendly and informative. They were also happy to make changes to the menu to cater for our lack interest in mushrooms. The setting and ambiance would suit both being smartly dress or casual smart. Well worth a visit or 2.

Family of 4 for dinner.
Food quality is very good, waiter very nice and attentive.
We will repeat.

Only downside, (this is personal and maybe picky), I did not like they added the word "optional" to service charge at the bill, when they actually tell you they will add it to the bill (small print on the menu). To me, it is not "optional".
I thought it was just not the best approach to inform customer about the service fee.

We had a table for 2 adults and 2 children. The adults food was delicious. The children both had steak skewers which were very chewy and neither ate them though they usually enjoy steak. Strangely the veg accompanying the kids steak skewers were a few sweet potato crisps (nice) and a very spicy coleslaw which neither could eat! They both very much enjoyed the sugar laden kids desserts though!
Would come again as the adult steaks were amazing.

I have made a reservation online, and I was happy to be asked if it was a special occasion. It was our wedding anniversary soon to be ruined. The service was horrible. The starter was good but when the main came everything started to go wrong. The steak that was supposed to be rare was raw, bleeding all over the plate. We asked for drinks when the mains were served, the drinks were going to be served when we finished eating (we refused the drinks). We ordered desert, after 10 minutes waiting we were asked if we were waiting for the cheque. Another 10 minutes later I went up to the waiter and said that we just wanted to leave, we were not going to wait any more. The cheque came with service charge, that the waiter looked a bit surprised when I refused to pay. DON'T GO!

Overpriced. Fatty food. My family members and I felt unwell afterwards because of all the grease. The portions were really stingy and they made up for it with dollops of salsa.

Early evening meal with friends. Shown to table given menu but didn,t see waiter for next 15 minutes, no drinks offered. Eventually got served, wine and food good. Service ok but waiter not enthusiastic about serving the table, interested in getting things sorted out in main restaurant. Plenty of places in Wimbkedon village where they serve steak and like your custom.

I took my date there for his birthday. We had never eaten at Cau and the food was really good. The pork belly to start with was amazing and the steaks were so so good. The servers really know their cuts of steak and we’re able to advise us on what cut to go for, which was really good. Good knowledge of wine also and a good wine list.
They gave us a complimentary cake for his birthday with a candle in it which was a nice touch.
Nice place for a date very smart and modern.

An excellent meal at Cau, with top quality food let down by awful service. The staff were swapped around during dinner so 5 waiters saw to us, often repeating questions and forgetting orders and this made the whole experience rather poor. It is a shame because we love this restaurant and the food is exemplary. PLEASE sort out the staff!

Such a bad experience at Cau recently. We’ve eaten there many times but wasn’t great at all. We arrived on time and despite asking for a booth table on booking, were told there weren’t any even though there were a good many available. That would have been just about ok if it wasn’t for the way the manager just shrugged her shoulders and was very rude when we enquired about it. On ordering food and drinks we were then informed that they had run out of one of the only two lagers on the menu. The only one that my husband and his friend drink. They don’t drink wine or spirits either so they wouldn’t have been able to have a drink. When we asked about it, the manager again just laughed and joked about it. There was no solution or apology given. In the end we left the restaurant. Not a great evening at all at Cau. Had a fantastic meal at neighbouring restaurant Giggling Squid though!

Given we booked the table so far in advance, it was disappointing to be put on the table right by the front door but also service was good but not great, eg had to ask for drinks more than once a couple of times before they turned up. Equally, they dealt very well with my allergy and were very helpful on this.
