A wine called Lois

We were celebrating a birthday,, my son’s, and as he is interested in all things Argentinian we went to an Argentinian restaurant called Cau; we went to Bristol but there are Cau’s in different places. I had glanced at the menu when we had passed by once before, but had no real idea of what might be on offer, although I thought meat might feature rather a lot since that is one of the things Argentina is known for!

The Bristol Cau is a bright modern restaurant with lots of shiny metal, on the walls on the ceiling, and the pipes which above us, heating I would guess. There were pictures of clouds on the walls and some cloud shaped lights hanging above the bar. We were speedily attended by a very friendly and efficient waitress, a very smiley young woman, who took our orders for drinks. I was excited to see there was a sparkling red wine called ‘Lois’ on the menu, which I ordered – a celebration of a birthday should be the mum’s treat as well as the birthday child!

We all had streak of different sorts, with chimichurri sauce for me and my boy, but blue cheese for my husband; there were lots of other options apart from steak, veggie, chicken, salad, burgers…  it was a great meal, superb flavour, generous portions but not overwhelming, everything cooked perfectly. The boys had beer, I stuck to wine but moved onto a red. I was very satisfied, but my  husband and son finished with churros, little doughnutty things served with dulce con leche… too sweet for me!
