My friend and I had dinner here and had two different experiences. I opted for two of the "small plates" - the pork tempura and the mussels - which were fantastic. My friend got the steak sandwich, which was yummy but not at all worth...More

Cau was a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience....do order the steak! I didn't and I had severe food envy as they looked absolutely delicious! That said my own meal was excellent however why I chose not to have steak in a steak restaurant is beyond me!

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!

Go here every time I am in Amsterdam. Delicious food and delicious cocktails! Great service. Tables are a bit tight together but that's just a small qualm. Would recommend booking, big place, but always best.

A nice place in the very city center of Amsterdam. The food was good but not extraordinary. The service was also gut but not so flexible. You have to book a table before you go there, is always crowded.

It's a steak house. It's a bit dark and smokey but the steaks are excellent - and expensive. However they know what they are doing picking steaks and cooking them. The menu revolves round this and so don't expect excellence in presentation, variety choice of...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
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
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
