Lovely staff. Very friendly and helpful. Our order was incorrect on arrival but the supervisor sorted it out without fuss and we were very satisfied. The steaks were delicious but very little on evening menu if you didn't want meat. Bit pricey really.

After my partner and I visited a month ago we really loved the atmosphere and of course the amazing food. After having a good experience, my partner wanted to show off our new favourite restaurant to his brother. On Friday afternoon my partner walked into the restaurant with his brother, there was only one staff member that was visible. It... More

We thought we'd treat ourselves to a steak for an early tea on Sunday 19th Feb, and I'd heard good stuff about Cau so was looking forward to it. However on sitting down, asked for the gluten free menu and was presented with an A4 file with sheets of paper in to work out what was gluten free. Started speaking... More

As I get older I truly believe that keeping it simple and doing it well is the way to go. Delicious steak (lots of choice) well cooked. As I part time 'vegetarian' I didn't see much non meaty choices, but this is a steak restaurant and a good one. Nice service and a light open space. Good choice of wines.

Had a lovely meal at Cau. Steak were good, but you would expect, however it was nice to have steaks cooked differently. Cocktails were very good, but a little pricey.

We had a bad experience at Cau a couple of months ago and, after complaining, were invited back. The general manager has changed since we went before and it was such a different experience this time around. There is a great atmosphere in there and the food was amazing (not just steaks!). We will 100% be back. Thank you so... More

My friends and I visited on saturday 18th and were sat upstairs in a booth. Our waitress Becky gave us a warm welcome and suggested some cocktails for us to have whilst looking at the menu. The cocktails took a little while to receive, but it was a busy night! We had a few questions about the steaks and our... More

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
