Nice Steak, Great 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.

After reading great reviews on the internet and also on TripAdvisor this steakhouse was a must for us to come and try.

I don't often eat steak when we go out as too often it is disappointing. Not the case with Cavs! I had the eye fillet and it was melt in the mouth with all the flavour. I went retro with the pepper sauce - brilliant. Hubby had the rump and also scored it 5/5 . Great restaurant and I love... More

We visited Cav's after an absence of 25 years and to our relief it had stayed true to its roots - providing top quality produce cooked perfectly. As a family of four holidaying on the Gold Coast, every meal out can be a minefield but not at Cav's. Parking is easy, with ample at the rear. Being able to BYO... More
