My partner and I visited here last weekend and the food was good, some good options for meat lovers. The cocktails were tasty. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant for a chilled evening.

Cau, without doubt, offers the best steak in Guildford. Always cooked to perfection and always great quality. Love it!

Following a very enjoyable evening on the Friday before, I revisited cau Guildford last Wednesday. It was a disappointing experience with the food no where near as good as the Friday before. My chips were served cold, the steak was tough as it had been cooked/left on side, and my girlfriends veggy burger was cold. I agree replacements were arranged and delivered but in my view it should not happen. Meal of 4 people badly disrupted. Also staff were very poor again. Slow service and didn't seem interested Did we just come on a bad night or is this now the normal standard to be expected? Not sure I want to risk having a bad meal again
