Thought we would try this place as we heard it was no. 2 steakhouse in Gold Coast...so very disappointed. My steak was barely cooked and tough as boots. Apparently the rump steak was aged 60 days.

Eye fillet steak was great. Starters are a generous size as was the kids meals. Service was friendly and bonus was a kids room.

I like going to Cav's, the food is good enough, the drinks range, etc. My only issue is getting up to line up to order. There's table service for the drinks but not the food? As someone whose been on crutches/wheelchair for a year, this really is a pain.

Thank-you for your great score and we are thrilled you enjoyed the food and drink range. Just to clarify the idea behind getting up to order is that you can choose your very own steak from the steak display and we will cook that one up for you exactly how you like it.

Having visited Cav's on and off for the past 12 years, it's always been consistent and reliable, with great food and good service. I've been here on with friends and family, for birthdays, solo trips and as a couple. It's sad to hear that they will be closing in the next few month while the building undergoes redevelopment, but the... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday here with family as it was a child friendly venue (for our nieces). It does have a child area that in my opinion could be improved on. The steak was good as was the wine selection, but I feel overpriced for what you get (Steak, chips and coleslaw for $45). Won't be seeing me again... More

Although the decor is a little old, the service is friendly and you are made to feel welcome. They are closing soon for rebuild of entire building. The only comment I have is that the idaho potato and the coleslaw where ok but a little bland and old fashioned.

Dined here for a dinner one night, best steak I have had in years, place was packed, so obviously popular, my son is a chef and he was impressed with the food here. A bit expansive when there are six people eating, but then again, you only get what you pay for and we were happy to pay the price!
