About CAU - Guildford

Buenos Aires and Guildford might be quite a bit apart, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t experience all of the charm of Argentina’s energetic and cosmopolitan capital city without leaving the UK. Located on the High Street in the town centre, CAU serves up mouthwatering Argentinian steaks, as well as other Latin American-inspired dishes like the Buenos Aires classic: choripan, a baguette filled with grilled chorizo, chimichurri mayo and red onion marmalade. Whether it's for brunch, lunch or dinner, CAU’s menu has something to suit all tastes and occasions, whether you’re a meat lover or vegetarian. To guarantee a table, booking in advance is advised.

They phoned to check we were still coming - fine; accepted our slight change of time as we were going to the theatre. Food was outstanding for the four of us and the trainee Italian lady was excellent; what more can I say??

Very enjoyable steak restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxed but professional. The only suggestion is that the steak on the plate was not garnished with say a tomato. Also I ordered Irish coffee which was very good. Altogether it was a pleasant lunchtime experience . I dined alone but felt very happy .

The meal was excellent. I had a delicious steak and my friends had a burger which she enjoyed. We weren't rushed out although the restaurant was fairly busy, however it did take nearly 45mins to get the bill and make payment however we weren't in any rush so it didn't bother us unduly!

I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the excellent service from staff. Our waiter was a delightful young man, the steak was beautiful and I will definitely return to eat there again. Maybe try the lunchtime menu with a friend.

We went to Cau in Guildford for a late lunch on a Sunday. It was quiet and the service was good. The food was delicious! We all had a steak (different cuts) and the quality and tenderness of the meat was excellent. We’ll definitely be back!

Fantastic food. Service second to none. All the staff went out of their way to accommodate us as a big party. The chef even made a surprise celebratory dessert for my son as it was his Birthday .
