If you are looking for a great steak and a great night then this is the place to go. We go here a lot as it would be the best steaks and seafood on the coast at Labrador

We have never been disappointed by the quality steaks at Cav's. The accompanying baked potato with bacon sauce and the coleslaw make a delicious meal. For non- steak eaters there are other excellent choices. Easy parking, lovely service, great food.

This is a bistro style get em in get em out type restaurant. Don't come here thinking its got any level of sophistication as its barely above a Hogsbreath (not that I've ever eaten at one).

We have been here a couple of times. The steaks are always reliably good. The decor is in need of a little facelift. Staff didn't know much about the wine and were just learning.

Very enjoyable evening. Excellent idea where you choose your own steak from a lovely display & decide how you want it prepared. The Manger & staff were very attentive & obliging. The steaks were done to perfection & delicious. The potatoes were rather on the small size and could have been hotter. Will certainly return.
