Absolutely spectacular food and wine

I could not wait to post a review of this restaurant after our seating last night. We had the most wonderful evening thanks to Verve. We ordered the degustation with wine, which was $149 and worth every cent. The pumpkin tart was lovely, the scallops were cooked perfectly and the pork belly was... read more

Gorgeous hidden gem that I'd love to keep all to myself but is just to amazing not to share! Amazing food, wine, staff and decor. My family and I had the Degustation menu and the only thing I would perhaps add to this, is a small palate cleanser in there before dessert. Other than that, all I can say is... More

Can only agree with the great reviews before mine. The restaurant is small but really well presented, the food lovely with the option to have either entree or main sizes in the menu. I had the quail as an entree which was truly delicious, and for mains, the beef cheeks which were also really good, although there was a strong... More

There are many bars and restaurants on the Gold Coast. Most cater to middle of the road clients on a budget. To get 5 star service you normally have to go to a 5 star hotel. Verve is a small hole in the wall that seats 40 diners maximum. Cozy in the Melbourne type of feel, the service was great... More

Great wine, good service & even better food. If you like your meat, do try the Pork Cheek. Hidden gem this place is. Will be back very soon!

We were staying in central Broadbeach and walked to Verve, which is just a little walk off the beaten track. It was worth it.! It met all our expectations and was one of 3 great meals we had on our 4 nights in Broadbeach. The food was excellent, the service was good and we would be a contender on,our list... More

This is what I call perfection!! From the moment we stepped inside to the moment we left. Couldn't fault it. Lisa and the team looked after us exceptionally well. The food was divine and wines matched very well. We will be back!!

I can see why this place is number one on the Trip Advisor list, it was superb. The wait staff were attentive and efficient and the service was first class, right down to folding the customer's serviette while they were away from the table. We did not have the degustation, instead selecting the oysters, and the pork belly for starters... More
