CAU specialises in Argentine steaks, served in a relaxed and casual, yet stylish and sleek dining room.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Ultra-contemporary, on-trend design features and vast floor-to-ceiling windows, literally make CAU a place to be seen in. Some design elements such as big, sleek, metallic lampshades are impressive; however, others, such as shiny plastic chairs or photographic wall panels of sky and grass, slightly cheapen the otherwise impressive restaurant. Bringing Argentinian steaks to a country that produces some of the best beef in the world is bold – however, CAU’s variety of 30-day aged steaks do have exceptional flavour. The steaks come with chips and sauce, but if you have room order a little pot of truffled mac and cheese, which is luscious. And you’ll definitely want to try the selected Argentine wines. The speciality cuts come with lofty prices – but as they all start at a whopping 400 grams and are incredibly succulent, juicy and flavoursome, they are worth the stretch. Other mains include burgers, sandwiches, and a handful of token offerings for non-beef eaters. Starters include crispy tempura pork belly or smoked beef, which is smoky and rich, with a deliciously creamy wasabi mayonnaise. Desserts are just as indulgent.
