The service in this branch is exceptional, or at least it has been on the two occasions I've visited. The steaks are delicious, it's not the greatest steak I've ever had but it really isn't far off. if you're a fan of steak but don't...More

Tried different steaks and they were quite average, though the pepper sauce was not bad. Our waiter was very friendly and patient, and recommended us items as well. The desserts were nice though, we had the brownies and the dulce de leche crepes. The tempura...More

Went for a birthday celebration last week. The food was good as always but found the service lacking - slow and had to repeat requests several times so overall a bit disappointing.

Great food and amazing surroundings needs more attentive staff waited a bit longer on the mains. It was a bit noisy could not have a proper conversation with my partner, I will definitely return for the steaks.

Wife and I ordered steaks, followed by pancakes and vanilla flan. The steaks were excellent. Side dishes (cherry toms, chips, coleslaw) and desserts were of the same standard. Waiter was attentive without being a nuisance. Only downside for me was the noise - music a...More

Best steak ever. The waiter, Oliver, was both attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Superb cocktail and wine selection that compliments the meal. Fantastic vibe, an amazing way to start a Friday evening after a long week!!!More

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
