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.

Before I went there, my sister kept boasting how good this place's steaks are. May be due to this high expectation, I was quite disappointed that the steaks were very average.

We went there for a special celebration. The interior of the building is very cosy and the food was delicious. You pick your own meat and then they cook it. For us it was a little bit pricey to go to just for dinner.

We found Cav's steakhouse by searching tripadvisor for restaurants close to our accommodation (Crystal Bay). This restaurant is only around the corner and so we ended up eating here 2 nights in a row after self catering for several nights. They pride themselves on their steaks and my husband and son were very happy with theirs. They offer steaks with... More

They have a large choice of steak. I had the baked potato and coleslaw with it. I struggled to finish it as there was so much food. The steak was cooked the way I like it and the salad was tasty. My high chaired baby made a mess of the steamed veggies and they were very kind about it.
