Great food, good service, nice setting!
The only, slight, negative, was the ambient temperature, which was a bit high.
We will definitely be back again, and will bring our friends too!

Having eaten in a previous Cau restaurant in Liverpool we where looking forward to trying Cau Amsterdam. The menu was the same as previous, serving fantastic steak. I chose the 220g Filet, I did ask for it well done and it came out of the kitchen blue, but judging from what happened we had been given another tables steaks ( luckily I didn’t cut into it). Price wise, it was reasonable compared to other European city’s I have dined in. It was more in line to what you would expect to pay in the UK (I paid £22 for my steak). Would recommend and return.

Super steaks en beste ribbetjes ooit. En ik ben 50jaar, dus al wel wat mogen vergelijken.

Booked for 8pm and shown straight to our table on the 3rd floor, the only bathrooms are on the 1st floor if you plan on having a few drinks be prepared for a session on the stair master. Starters took an hour to arrive we were given a complimentary bottle of water ?
The thing that saved the meal was the meat, cooked to perfection (10oz fillet medium rare) I have looked at some of the reviews from our friends in the states but ours could not have been better. Great sides apart from the mac cheese with truffle, no cheese and no truffle would not recommend.
Reasonably priced Malbec (€29.00) and seeing as they were slammed the service was pretty good.
Would return.

It’s my fifth time in this restaurant. I’ve been there once in a year and I can actually see how it became worse and worse every year.
The service is super slow, they don’t care about anything. They see you as a bill. Even no place to put your coat.
The meat was not tasty and I could see that the person who prepared it was not professional. Same for other dishes .

The food and service was excellent and very good value. The fillet steak was cooked perfectly.
We were seated upstairs and found it far too hot but the staff arranged to move us down stairs very quickly.
I would definitely eat here again.

Excelente restaurante,

Buena comida y el lugar bonito con un servicio y trato amable.

Las carnes que probamos estaban de muy buena calidad.

Es argentino, no es un lugar típico de Amsterdam pero es una excelente opción para variarle.

This is my favorite spot in Amsterdam for a date night,the steak here is always cooked to perfection. We were celebrating our anniversary & the host brought us Prosecco with our dessert. The host upstairs is so efficient. Dining here is always a lovely experience.

This place used to be really good but steaks were not brilliant, tough and stringy
Thought extras were a bit pricey at 4.5 euros each which made the whole meal expensive
for steak and chips!

Great place, with very good prices and amazing staff and atmosphere. Only ever had an issue once, and that was immediately corrected and a complimentary dessert was given to us to compensate.

Amazing place - My favorite in Amsterdam!

We’ve been here many times because the food has always been excellent. This time however, big deception !!!
Our entrees were very bad, the croquettes were overbaked so you couldnt taste the filling, only the crunch. The carpaccio just had no taste at all.
The steaks were the biggest deception ! It’s usually from very good quality and melts in your mouth. Now it was chewy, not tender, not much flavor to it. We could have cooked it better ourselves.
Too expensive for mediocre mail ! Not worth the price at all

If you are looking for something different in Amsterdam look no further. Restaurants in Europe are known for the lack of good service. We dinned in several restaurants in the city over the past week.

We had the best service. They ware very attentive. The food came out of the kitchen fairly quick for a Friday night.

Thank you

Very expensive with OK food and with a menu that is written very poorly. It is the first restaurant for me with an unclear menu and I traveled everywhere in the world and come from New York. So maybe it is a good restaurant for locals but definitely I would not recommend it.
