Fillet steak to die for. No need for the large steak knife as it is so tender. Loved the Idaho potato and coleslaw included. Many choices on menu to suit non beef eaters. Definitely worth a visit. Great staff make the experience enjoyable. Good off-street parking and play area for children.

If your coming to the Gold Coast, you're going to Cav's. The meat is cooked to perfection and all waitstaff were attentive and polite. The kids absolutely love it there and the restaurant is very family friendly. The cows are still out the front and have become an icon! You must must must go to Cav's!!!!

Perfect venue for Father's Day. Staff were on their toes and even though we had to queue to order our meal it arrived very quickly on such a busy day. You can't fault the meat.

The service upon being seated was quite slow. It took nearly 8 mins to be asked if we would like a drink. My steak was ordered medium rare. It was cooked rare. The music was strange. Perhaps some Blues would be more in keeping with the atmosphere. The coleslaw dressing was very sweet and lacked flavour. Sorry to be so... More

Firstly thank you for taking the time to review us. Our drink service wholly relies on how the customers enter the restaurant and that night we did experience a busy period. We apologize for the 8 min wait. We accept your meal was undercooked, however if you addressed the issue the night to a staff or manager we could have... More

Forget about the rest of the steak houses on the Gold Coast this is by far the best quality and cooked steak I have had anywhere on the Gold Coast. To support the quality meat on offer they provide a boutique butcher's shop where you can purchase this succulent meat during normal trading hours.

This was a real find when we were on Holiday in nearby Broadbeach - worth the 20 minute drive. The concept is very good as when you first enter it looks like a butchers meat counter. You choose which cut of steak or meat you might like, advise how you want it cooked and let them seat you in the... More
