Being on the coast for a family occasion Saturday afternoon we found ourselves looking for a place to have dinner afterwards and just happened upon a place I had always wanted to go but never had the opportunity. Cav's is well known to locals and a part of the legendary Cavill family/ Surfers Paradise Hotel dynasty so expectations were naturally... More

This was a return visit for us- we live close by and wanted to bring a steak-loving friend to try the menu. I am no a great steak-lover myself but I was happy enough with my steak with garlic prawns. It was cooked how I had requested. My husband tried some oysters as an appetiser, but did not enthuse greatly.... More

If you are looking for any sort of meat Cav's is the place. It started as a butchery and extended to include a restaurant, serving their high quality produce, hence the reputation. The menu is extensive with everything from steaks, ribs to their fantastic beef sausage. A range of sauces completes the meal and the portion sizes will not leave... More

Perhaps my title is a little unfair as I expected great things - my husband had eaten here this time last year and said he had the best steak he had ever eaten. So when the opportunity came for us to dine at Cav's I was pretty excited. The disappointment started when I saw the dining area - a cavernous... More

Thanks for feedback about your night at Cavs. It seems that we tried very hard to make your night out a good one. You didn’t like the cold, so we moved you. Your steak wasn’t cooked to your liking, so we fixed it. Everybody has a different take on how there steak should be cooked. We try very hard to... More

I had the best steak ever at Cav's. You can choose the type of beef and the varieties of beef in the showcase were amazing. They were cooked to perfection as well. I will definitely visit the place again!

Similar to some reviews in Jan, friendly enough service etc , however given the ordinary location and $, quality of meat and food needed to be better. Definitely try elsewhere.
