Mouthwatering and soo tender! Can't say enough good about this restaurant. Recommendation came from a friend. We were a little hesitant at first as we wanted to experience local cuisine but by the end we're blown away by the food! Great service! To die for fillets!

Had dinner early December with a party of four. Although I was worried that it would be touristy I was pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. Try the King of steaks ! Nice...

We were so lucky we walked in and got told "ok give us a minute" then every person that walked in after us was told an hour wait, an hour and a half Food was delicious, steak was cooked the way I like it and the cocktails were beautiful. Friendly staff. No complaints.

I don't usually review places I've been, but I believe in giving credit where'd credit's due. Prior to heading to Amsterdam, I did a lot of research for somewhere good to eat and at no point in my search did this place come up. We found it totally by accident and within spitting distance of our hotel (Swissôtel) and I'm... More

Is the third time I have been there. The service depends dramatically from the person attending you. Nice atmosphere, I would suggest the hamburger with crispy union rings (see photo) and red wine Valpollicella. Good steacks with excellent crispy French fries. Nice time. Around € 50

Cau is located close to the heart of the city, a few minutes walk from Dam Square, etc. It is a modern, popular place with a great atmosphere. The food we had was wonderful - I can recommend the steaks (one of their specialities) but the food others were eating looked equally good (and was receiving excellent comments). There is... More

Me and my wife visited here last weekend. It's a nice clean looking place where you can mostly see your food being prepared and cooked. Watched the chef preparing salads and washing his hands between dishes which is always nice to see. The place was very busy and we were in a bit of a tight spot next to the... More

This Argentinian steak house has a very nice brunch menu (brunch is from 10-2 daily). Relatively reasonable for what you get, 8-12 Euros for a big English breakfast, or eggs benedict, etc. One star is missing because it's a bit pricey for the area.
