The place looked nice from outside so I read the TA reviews and decided to eat dinner here. I was disappointed. My medallions (Argentinian beef) were nothing special and rather highly priced, 16 euros no side dishes. I ordered a mixed salad for 4.50. It...More

A good place for steaks. Service is good, fast and friendly, definitely worth a visit. However, the portion is not big and the sides are ordered separately. Everything is good and cooked to perfection.

Great place to go for steak. Food is a bit pricey, however it was delicious and the quality was great. Service was very good as well.

As usual, on our annual visit to Amsterdam, we lunched at Cau and we're delighted to find that it was as good as ever. Recognised by some of the staff, which is always nice. Friendly atmosphere and good food, what more can you ask?

Cau is the best beef restaurant I've been to in Amsterdam. We, a group of friends visiting Amsterdam last weekend, both had lunch and dinner at the restaurant. Both of the meals are recomended!

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to

Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
