Fall in love with Argentine cuisine in London at CAU, a stylish steakhouse on Wimbledon’s High Street. Aiming to create a restaurant that would fit in perfectly in the heart of Palermo, Buenos Aires, CAU replicates the area’s spirit, passion and sense of fun. Chow down on South American-style streaks, or try another Argentine favourite like the empanadas or yerba-smoked beef, before moving on to some seafood stew or some choripan (a Buenos Aires classic sausage baguette with grilled chorizo, chimichurri mayo and red onion marmalade). Whether it's for brunch, lunch or dinner, Wimbledon’s CAU is always a popular choice – to guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
On our visit we enjoyed a well cooked meal.Unfortunately the ceiling started leaking. The water hit my Grandaughters coat. The Manager and staff dealt with the situation smoothly. We were moved to a different area. The Manager said she would get the coat dry cleaned and we didn't have to pay for our meal. We were very gratefull but didn't take up the offer of dry cleaning the coat as it was machine washable. I would recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic service, food and ambiance in the lovely Wimbledon Village. Could not recommend more highly. The lunch time deal made it an extremely affordable treat.
Brilliant food, wonderful choices, starters amazing, steaks of course top notch. Coupled with attentive service and good atmospher we had a great evening out. A worthy side note was the Malbec was gorgeous after an informed discussion. Had breakfast here a month or so ago which was a revelation - a great Argentinian take on a traditional British institution of a late breakfast after a walk on the common.
Lovely lunch at Cau Wimbledon. Steaks were very good, as were the starters (I particularly enjoyed the halloumi and aubergine skewers). Good wine list, and spot on service.
First time at this restaurant and will visit again. We ordered small glasses of a Malbec wine but the waiter initially brought a whole bottle which he left on the table, as we were both driving we had to make it clear that we had asked for a small glass each only. At which point he took all the wine away and returned with measured small glasses. The steaks were good as were both the chunky chips and sweet potato fries. Sadly they had run out of the flourless chocolate cake which I was looking forward to. It was a Friday night, so was fairly loud in the restaurant, but not to loud to hold a conversation.
Steak is excellent. I have been a few times and the quality is consistent. The starters that I've had have also been very nice. I am not over impressed with the other main courses or desserts however. I'd also say that the portion of sauce is very mean. Service is not great. Staff are friendly but badly managed, despite the "optional" service charge on the bill. The place advertises itself as Argentinian, it really couldn't be much further from Argentinian. All in all, the steak is very good of you go for the large sizes and the sides and sauces are tasty so it is worth a visit.
Fab time at Cau! Our first time here, and we will definitely be back. Steaks were delicious, and considering we did the special lunch menu the portion size was great and very good value for money. Good choice of wines, the Malbec we had was one of the nicest I've had for a long time.
This was our second visit to Cau, and the food was even nicer than our first visit! We did the lunch special menu, the fish tacos to start were delicious, and we both had steaks for mains which were really good. Service as always was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Beautiful food, lovely wine, super friendly service. I've been several times before and will go again. Cau was new to my companions and they loved it. Nine and a half out of ten - I don't like being told I have only an hour and a half to eat my dinner.
It was very chaotic with servers literally running around. We ordered a bottle of champagne and had to remind the staff and then they forgot to come back with the ice bucket. The drinks menu is limited. The music was very loud and it was hard to hold a conversation. The food was good though. Normally we would spend at least two hours in a restaurant, we finished in a hour and felt rushed, although we we happy to leave
