A taste of Buenos Aires, Argentina in the middle of the enchanting St Katharine Docks
What is CAU about?
THINK FUN ,
CAU is an Argentinian restaurant based on the mixed Buenos Aires cuisine which has influences of Italy, Spain and Argentina.
The interior design of CAU is vibrant, with quirky floating clouds lights, slick white chairs with contrasting black tables, grass walls and ceilings which remind you of being outside, beautiful blue sky wall paper across the restaurant.
What about the Staff?
Every staff member in CAU SKD is friendly, helpful and attentive from the CAU Girls and Boys to the Chefs.

The food in CAU is served beautifully. Each dish was tasty and full of flavour. Although all the food was enjoyed, the winning dishes of the day was “Shrimp Chicharron” and “Spatchcock Chicken”. The Shrimps were ever so lightly battered they were not covered in flour which allowed for the full taste of juicy prawns. The aji Amarillo (Peppers) sauce gave great a kick to the prawns. So this dish is great if you like spice!
Although I could not finish my main dish, of course it was taken home to be devoured again later:
Would EatingwithPrecious return?
Absolutely, depending on the day you visit CAU there are different offers. Bottomless Brunch on a Saturday starting at £12.50 at or Sunday Roast for just £15 per person. CAU is a must visit in London to sample some Argentinian cuisine especially if you can’t fly to Buenos Aires anytime soon.

Why visit the SKD location:
Firstly, if you haven’t visited SKD you’re missing out. Who does not like to eat food with a view? It offers slick marina views and lots of cool boats in the middle of London.
It is not a far walk from Fenchurch Street Station or Tower Hill station and it is pretty much across from the Tower of London.
