Best in Amsterdam

I've tried a few of the hundreds of steak houses they have in Amsterdam but this place stood out with it's creative name and design. And the food is great too. If you want a steak in Amsterdam then this is the place you want to visit.

Tuesday 30th June and then 2 July 2015. I like my steak and was not disappointed at all. Neither were my friends. A menu with something for everyone, a staff who know their menus and service that was both friendly and helpful - thanks to Milr and Marino who looked after us brilliantly. The steak itself (Rib eye) was cooked... More

Nearly excellent we’ll take it : ) All kidding aside, we are happy our waiters took good care of you. Sorry the wine didn’t live up to your expectations maybe next time one of our malbec wines will do a better job. More

we were shown to our first floor window seat by a welcoming host. We enjoyed the food and the steak was to die for. The atmosphere improved as the restaurant got busier in the evening. The service was top notch and we would definitely return.

After enjoying many meals here over the last few years, tonight both the quality of service and food has diminished. Two of our party of six sent our steaks back as they weren't cooked as requested. Our steaks came out five minutes before our side orders and the sauces came out even later. One of our party sent his steak... More

After walking past a number of average looking steak houses our hotel recommended Cau.

It's quite a bit chain, but they keep good quality. The steak was good, even considering that it was quite big and chunky. A bit too pricy.

We were greeted by all staff members when entering the restaurant which was nice. Our waiter was sincere and friendly, very helpful and attentive. He described the dishes well. We chose the salmon which was simple but really nicely cooked. Sides are served in nice little dishes. Food was tasty, price was ok, service was great. It was clean, too.... More
