Capture the lively spirit of Buenos Aires at CAU. This, the Glasgow branch, is right in the heart of the city and anyone’s top spot if hungry for fine Argentinian steaks, high-stacked burgers or damn satisfying wraps. You’ll find this CAU on Ingram Street – equidistant between Glasgow Central, Queen Street and Argyle Street train stations – where the vibe is elegant and stylish whilst maintaining a definite sense of Argentinian fun. Choose a chef’s special cut of beef, a classic sirloin or rump or, of course, any of one of many delightful options from what is a surprisingly varied menu.
The time it took to be served each course was excessive despite it being a Saturday night.The waiting staff seemed a bit disorganised.We were served pancakes with ice cream on plates with a high rim and only a fork.The starter of croquettes contained only 3 which were rather small with a bit of lettuce garnish.I asked for a large glass of Prosecco and received it in a champagne flute.The music that was playing was fine but far far too loud and we had a struggle to hear each other speaking on a table for 4.If it had not been raining outside I think we would have left.I have been before and could not have found fault although it was midweek but we were all disappointed on this occasion and would definitely not book on a Saturday again.
We both ordered the rump steak. As our meal was slow arriving the manageress (unprompted) apologised and provided us with free drinks (a cocktail and beer) which was a very nice gesture. The waitress was very friendly and attentive despite the restaurant being very busy due to the City centre lights switch on. Our steaks were well cooked and very tasty. We would return to this restaurant.
First time at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Food was delicious and service was excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu and allergies. Would definitely go back
Great meal at a good price we would certainly go back the staff were friendly and helpful the restaurant is in a good location and very clean
Staff were excellent. Food was very good. Location was excellent. Would not bother with starters a wee bit overpriced. Would happily visit the restaurant again .
