My wife and I recently had two fillet steak medallions, one medium to well, the other medium rare. The first was very tough and sinewy, the second not tender like good fillet; neither seemed to be competently grilled. This was very disappointing after several excellent experiences over a number of years.

My husband and I first went to Cav's steakhouse five years ago when we were travelling then before we even got engaged. I fell in love the the Medallion of the Eye steak, and can never forget the flavor and texture of it since then. This year in July, we went back to the same place again but this time... More

The place and service were fine but I feel a nice piece of meat was small and over cooked! The vegies we're not even fresh. Overall, it was pub food charged as fine dining price! Will never go back!

Wouldn't have know about Cavs but for some family who frequent the Gold Coast. Glad we made the trip. Kid friendly but still fine if you don't have them. The separate little play room for kids keeps them (mostly) out of harms way. Was a busy night - but we went early - so no big issue with the slight... More

Perfect steaks and a great play area to keep the kids occupied. Steaks were cooked to perfection! (Rare) The coleslaw to me, is the most underrated side dish, balancing the steaks with a sweet but not too cloying taste.

Great steak good options and staff great. I love the fake cows out front, funky. Caves has great steak but it's not cheap, in my opinion over priced for food. You can get a bigger meal at the grands wills up the road for half the price. Our waiter abused me for not tipping, say what! This is not America... More

Really great Steakhouse where you get to choose your steak from the display and order it cooked to your liking. Other choices however the traditional serving is excellent.

Average place for food and cost. Caters to families with children. You order your meal at the meat counter and watch the guy pick your steak from the cooler. Steak was good but not great and the ribs were the same. Not likely to go back during our Gold Coast stay.
