The manager of one of our favourite Melbourne restaurants recommended that we visit Verve during our latest trip to the Gold Coast. The restaurant has apparently been there for quite some time but it's in a rather quiet out of the way spot on the casino side of the highway and away from the "delights" of the Broadbeach strip and...

We had the degustation menu last night and it was amazing and delicious. The flavors, textures and tastes were all perfectly balanced and the matching wines were perfect. The restaurant had a lovely ambience. The waiters were very knowledgable and timely with looking after us. Highly recommended!

After having a very good experience for lunch a couple of months ago, we returned for dinner. Verve did not disappoint. Dinner was cooked beautifully and presented beautifully. Service was very good and unobtrusive. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

It was a pleasure to discover this restaurant, inland from the typical "quantity over quality" food barns by the beach. Lovely, assured service with what seemed like a real desire to ensure everything was as perfect as possible. The food was very good, the wine list pretty good, and a nice touch with the riedel wine glasses.

If you value excellent food, lovely presentation of food and great wine, please visit Verve. A wonderful Gold Coast restaurant, a couple of blocks back from the main beach of Broadbeach and an easy walk from Jupiters Casino, it is well worth a visit. We were a group of 8 ladies on our annual weekend away and have eaten in... More

The Gold Coast is not somewhere you readily associate with fine dining. It reminds me somewhat of a British seaside town (candy floss, steak, fish, chips, tea, takeaways) with more warmth, more noise and taller buildings. In most of the hotels with restarants the quality is over hyped and underwhelming. So its a pleasure to find somewhere like Verve, which... More

Duck confit was wonderful - tender and lots of flavour. Great match with a good glass of red wine. Excellent service. Not located in the main restaurant strip but worth seeking this place out. Easy walk from Jupiters Casino/Pacific Fair shops. Will definitely be back.

Enjoyed a wonderful evening for my sister's birthday. All five of us were really impressed with the staff, presentation of both the café and the meals - WOW. What a hidden gem.

When recently on the Gold Coast for work, some of us took the opportunity to dine out and thankfully chose the beautiful 6 course degustation menu with matching wines at Verve. Each course was beautifully presented and our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. The lamb shoulder and pork belly were highlights for us along with the accompanying wines. Great... More
