Very nice

This was a solid steak house, had a ribeye with chips and a chipotle butter, nice glass of wine, nice decor if not maybe a little fancy for the style of food on offer, not quite a five because frozen fries at these prices is just a little lazy for me, but all in all a nice steakhouse in this... read more

Looking for a near-by spot for dinner we found CAU on Trip Advisor to be right off Dam Square close to our hotel. Although the steaks were featured we gave the seafood a try and were pleasantly surprised. The salmon and sea bass were both beautifully prepared and generous portions. Their sides are yummy too. We had grilled vegetables and... More

Met a friend here recently for dinner. He is local and it was his recommendation. He wasn't wrong. The meat is superb and cooked to perfection. Great Argentinian steakhouse. I have a handful of steakhouses I always visit when I am on my travels around Europe; this one just went on the list.

Loved the food & service so much we booked for a second evening. Food was varied - not just steaks ( although they were incredible!). Can recommend the cocktails!!

Really good meal. Trendy place in the Dam Square area. I would have given it a 5 but my beef was kind of fatty. Otherwise service was excellent. Had a very good un- rushed meal. Definitely our best dinner in amsterdam.

We had a table near the chefs and although good to watch it is very cramped and my partner got hit on the head twice by waiters collecting food from the pass so pointed out to manager who said that they are going to rearrange seating soon. Food very good indeed and steak superb but would rather have an all... More

We found this restaurant on the last day of our holiday, came across it after renting some bikes. We booked a table for that evening (recommend booking as it got very busy) we were served quick, by a friendly waiter. We ordered some cocktails while we waited for our food, they do a great mojito! After not a long wait... More

We walked past this restaurant, and it was really busy, so we thought it must be a good place to eat. We were right. We did not have a reservation, but had just timed it well, and we got a table in a few minutes. The staff were very friendly and really helpful, despite being really busy. The food was... More
