“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We were looking for a restaurant near Dam square and we chose this one and were very pleased with our choice. Good food was served (recommend the Burger and the tripple cooked chips) and we didn't have to wait to long. Prices are resonable and we sat upstairs looking out of the big windows.We would happliy return.

“Delightful luncheon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

CAU appearance is really nice especially as it's located right between Dam square & the red light district, both areas are rather scruffy!! It's really difficult to find somewhere nice to eat, everything seems to be unhealthy fast greasy food or pubs. CAU was really nice the food looked and tasted great, the hostess was really nice we felt so welcome. Price was very reasonable. We even went back for dinner in the evening so good!

A little dissapointing, first meal in Amsterdam and we hoped things would improve. That said the services was very good, the best we experienced in amsterdam.

“Good Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Stopped here for an early dinner on a Sunday evening and we were immediately seated. I had the bacon and cheese burger (14.75 euro) and my wife had the lomito sandwich (11.50 euro). The burger was cooked perfectly and my wife really liked the sandwich. In fact, she asked for the recipe for the red onion marmalade topping on the sandwich and was given it. The dishes were not inexpensive, but were reasonable in comparison to other restaurants we visited in Amsterdam. A ten percent gratuity was included in the bill. With a bottle of wine, the total bill was 54.95 euro; not too bad for a nice dinner in Amsterdam. Service was prompt and friendly. There is outdoor seating. The restaurant is not fancy, so it is comfortable for tourists who are roaming the city in casual wear.
