Amazing Find

Great restaurant! Fabulous wine and amazing food! Extremely knowledgable and attentive staff. We were in the gold coast visiting our daughter and wanted a small venue. This was the perfect choice.

Very glad we decided to get off the beaten Broadbeach track and headed over to broadbeach waters to try neighbourhood gem, Verve. Lovely owner Lisa was such a delight. The menu is not big but all meals can be served as a entree or main portion - I loved this! A great restaurant & must try for intimate atmosphere, fabulous... More

We have been long time regulars to Verve over many years, this is the first time we've been back in 7 months since the new owners have settled in. The ambience and decor have had a slight spruce up, however we feel the menu has lost its edge. Verve has always been known for its exceptional menu and food diversity... More

We normally save our fine dining dollars for trips to Sydney and Melbourne, but this little bistro-style joint is up there with the best. Excellent menu with emphasis on top quality fresh produce, intuitive wait staff [ Frenchman Nicola], pleasant understated interior, parking right outside, wine list that won't break the bank, great desserts. Definitely recommended.

Had heard so many positive reviews about this restaurant despite it being located away from the main restaurant district of Broadbeach. So much so I was really looking forward to this fine dining experience more than ever. Was so disappointed to see the local council ripping up the road immediately out the front of the Restsurant as we looked for... More

Been a big fan and regular patron of Verve for many years and was alerted to learn of its sale a few months back. As is often the case, venues change style and go down hill when sold so was in no hurry to go back until last week when finally made it there. The small contemporary space has been... More

We were blown away by the friendly, attentive service, lovely ambiance and delicious food. We had the degustation and each course was exquisitely presented and food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

We had a table of four on Saturday night. Loved the idea of being able to choose either entree or main size portions of each item on the menu. Dining room looked like it would seat about 40 pax. Only two waitstaff on the floor but they nailed it. Probably could have done with one more but we were never... More
