Cav's Steakhouse has established itself as one of the Gold Coast's most popular restaurants. This award winning hacienda-style restaurant at Labrador is a Gold Coast icon, serving superb meals in a welcoming and relaxed setting. Its premium aged steaks, fresh seafood and other specialty dishes have made it a favourite with discerning overseas and interstate visitors, Gold Coast business people and local families for 30 years. Fully licensed and with ample off-street parking, Cav's is perfect all year round. Located right next door to the restaurant, Cav's Butchery supplies a wide range of premium quality cuts. Customers can take home just about anything that appears on Cav's extensive restaurant menu, including a wide selection of pre-prepared salads and sauces to accompany the chunky fillet steak pies, eye fillets, t-bones, veal cutlets and many other succulent cuts.

Awesome Steak - 70s Setting

Cav's offers great, great steak and is the perfect venue for a group as opposed to romantic dinner. The setting hasn't been touched since the 70s but that's no big deal. It's a big restaurant, so expect just Ok service.

We had lunch here with two friends. You can pick your own steak and good selection of wines. Staff friendly and food good.

We are regular dinners at Cav's Steak house because the food is excellent. You can choose your own steak and it is cooked to order. This is not a BYO restaurant.

Food was decent and not bad value for a steakhouse. You get to see the steak as you order (before cooked). What really impressed me was the customer service. Friendly staff and when a person at another table knocked their champagne and broke the glass. They just moved them to a new table and set them up with a new... More

Despite a larger group walking in we were seated and looked after quickly. Menu was explained and drinks ordered. Ordering meat cuts from a cabinet was an interesting novelty. The meals were delivered in good time and were well presented and none of the party had any complaints. Great food and service!!

Nice casual atmosphere, $5 BYO Corkage. Great table service for drinks. There's a kids playroom, but it was quite full and noisy, so much kids are just as happy to sit at the table with us. Very quirky décor. My steak was slightly over done, but I didn't say anything, as it was still very delicious. Nice to see chicken... More
