Just stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. What an amazing restaurant. The best steak in years and a wide selection of Malbec to go with it. (Nice other wines too). The steaks were amazing, the grilled veggies were divine and the peas were really great as well. Finished with a grilled pineapple and coconut ice cream dessert. If there were... More

The design is modern and makes you think that you are in a London restaurant in the middle of Amsterdam, Its ideal for a night out with friends, a date and pretty much every occasion. Easy to find,... More

Been at the Cau many times. It is a great restaurant located at the most busy area in Amsterdam. I liked the restaurant design. They have simple menu with great starters, steaks are made from very fresh, high quality meat and the chef is never wrong with to cook. Must try!

Great food but always busy so either boo or be prepared to wait. Small but excellent atmosphere with Al Fresco Dining. The Cau Burger is better than some Fillet Mignon...

We ate here on our first night in Amsterdam. The steak was absolutely amazing. It's a large restaurant over 3 floors. The waitress was very nice and we had a brilliant time.

This is the third time I've visited Amsterdam, and the third time I've been to Cau. Once again it was excellent. This time I went with my parents, and even my Dad, who is quite a fussy eater, was really impressed with the food. If you like a good steak, you really should try this restaurant.
