We came to celebrate my birthday but it was not a great experience. It took an hour for them to take our order and the service was very slow. They had run out of a lot of items on the menu (maybe because it was a Sunday night?). Our steaks were really over cooked which surprised me as it's a... More

A good atmosphere but beware, when being shown to your table be sure that you're not sat under a air con vent, it becomes very drafty/cold. The cocktails were good but our wine arrived late after our food, just a small irritation when we had to remind them we had ordered it. Our steaks were ok, but I have to... More

This is the place for steaks in Guildford. Cooked exactly as you like it. Choose service. We ate early so not too busy. Would imagine you'd need to book if dining later 19:30/20:00 hrs especially Friday and Saturday evening

This is the perfect restaurant if you're a steak lover, they are tasty, tender and cooked to perfection. The sides are all really good and seem very fresh. The ambiance is brilliant, quite noisy, so not the place for you if you like quiet! But the service is good, a little slow if really busy, which it usually is, but... More

Arrived without booking after leaving a restaurant that had run out of food. Got an immediate table from a very efficient supervisor who ensured we had an excellent meal with a short timeframe The staff, service and food were all a credit to this restaurant and will return

I booked because Cau had come highly recommended. I booked for a party of 6 for my husband's birthday on a Saturday evening. The lady serving us, Kate, was very patient and explained the different types of steak to us. Kate was particularly patient with one of our group who is hard of hearing. I ordered a non-alcoholic cocktail which... More

On a recommendation, we tried Cau, really glad we did, although we hadn't booked we were soon seen to our table where waiters were first class not wanting to rush us and giving advice about the various cuts and sides, chips were a little on the cool side but were replaced straight away without so much as a thought, definitely...

Arrived on spec and was greeted warmly and led straight to a table. Unfortunately they didn't have our first choice of wine but allowed us to try several before making a choice! Our waitress was lovely, very smiley and nothing was too much trouble. A fab meal, the steak was beautifully cooked and the blue cheese hollandaise sauce is to... More

In town on business and fancied a steak so we thought we would try CAU. We were not disappointed. Very good steaks (Ribeye medium) followed by a recommended CAU branded Malbec which was also very good. The super large chips were nice but the very biggest was undercooked. (something to think about) The whole meal was made even better by... More
