Square Meal Review of CAU Blackheath ?


Founded by the brains behind the Gaucho chain, CAU offers a more egalitarian version of the high-end steakhouse concept – top-notch Argentinian beef and more besides at mid-market prices. As well as a full range of wet-aged lomito fillets, rib-eyes, sirloins and tapa de cuadril (cut from the haunch), the user-friendly international menu also offers salads, burgers, handmade ravioli, fishcakes and desserts such as dulce de leche pancakes. Like the food, the drinks list is tailored to a family audience with smoothies and mini-shakes alongside cocktails, world beers, South American wines and jugs of regional clericots (a fruity wine-based beverage). CAU’s design is as esoteric as Gaucho’s – in this case involving grassy-green pampas imagery on the ceiling and splashes of sky blue, plus a white-on-black resin floor and corrugated white walls adding an urban edge.

  1. When your south east of the river in London and you don’t want to track towards Hawksmoor Canary Wharf or Constancia Tower Bridge, where can you go for some good ole steaks? Well, Cau in Blackheath would be a good bet. Cau specialises in Argentinian steaks and most of the dishes we tried during our visit were a hit. The service is very good (impressive given how busy they were during our visit)...

  2. We are living our Argentinean dreams vicariously through Cau, a new restaurant on the vibrantly saturated Blackheath dining scene – a Buenos Aires culinary experience with only 3 branches in the country, one of which is near my marital home and the other near my childhood parental home – is this some kind of sign? The issue, however, is this. The name is by no means cryptic. Cau is wordplay on cow and given that neither of us eat beef, we were concerned about whether we would have any place being in an establishment like this or indeed whether we would even be allowed through the doors. Reassuringly, a quick sweep of the website starts to tickle the tastebuds and we spot many items we can eat in amongst the cow options for the rest of you! We also spot a small-plate tapas –style option. This proves ideal – it is only the 1st week of January and we are entering the post-Christmas “healthy” eating phase of the new year...
