Looked not very inviting from the outside but once inside great atmosphere and very popular. Picked your own piece of meat to be cooked in the way you wanted. Children's play area . Only criticism was our waitress who was not very helpful or engaging. Food was great.

A very pleasant venue with ample off-street parking. The service is always very good, steaks are perfectly cooked to your taste. Excellent wines to select from. They have their own butchery alongside the restaurant for those who are keen on cooking their own steaks at home. All in all a pleasant experience. A little noisy due to slate floor but... More

We made it a point to eat steak on our visit to Australia and the reviews on Tripadvisor stating Cav's offer great value made us want to try it. We were not disappointed. Price range from $30-$50. Decent price for good steaks. We had the rib fillet and eye fillet. Kids also have a good value $11-13 rib fillet &... More

Hadn't visited Cav's for a about a year then took the family again Food is terrible and quality is bad and quantity is downsized considerably. Would of been willing to give them another go but the service was also terrible! Felt uncomfortable and unwelcome!

I'm heartbroken, they are closing soon to make way for a high rise. Their ribs are to die for and just melt in your mouth. The steaks are always cooked to my liking and of course don't forget to order a waygu on the side. I do hope they relocate somewhere close so I don't miss out.

We apologise for the chips not being cooked to your liking. For the record Garlic Bread fresh, takes 15 minutes and to cook chips fresh, takes 10 minutes so your review we feel is unfair and unjustified. Please come back when you are a little more relaxed.
