“Great food and staff”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Ate here on last night of our holiday.Went with the degustation menu which overall was great (venison was a bit tough though and chicken and popcorn soup more of a gimmick but tasty nonetheless). Rest of the meal was fabulous and lovely staff.

“Well worth the walk. Best meal on the Gold Coast.”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Booked at Verve after reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Had very high expectations after so many glowing comments and we were delighted that it was every bit as fab as reviews claim.

Small, intimate, friendly setting. Friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive service. Exactly the right length of time between courses. Amazing food!

After a delicious lamb entree, my partner chose beef cheek for mains while I had venison. Both were melt-in-the-mouth tender and full of flavour. We couldn't decide whose dessert (passionfruit marshmallows or donuts with espresso ice-cream) was better, but they were both divine.

Verve fit the bill perfectly for a truly romantic, delicious "special treat" meal. Well worth the wander - about 15 mins from the main dining/hotel strip - and will definitely take us back to the Gold Coast again soon.

“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We recently dined at Verve and had a great evening. Verve is a restaurant well worth visiting if you enjoy great food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. Shelley and Rachael were both very welcoming and friendly and the service was great - attentive but not obtrusive. We had a delicious meal - my husband had eye fillet and I had the beef cheeks and both were great. My husband also had dessert which was an apple and rhubarb crumble which was certainly not your average crumble, it turned what I consider a fairly uninteresting dessert into something special. The atmosphere at this restaurant is great, very relaxed and a nice setting. You have to know that Verve is there through research such as Trip Adviser or other sites because it isn't in the main part of a Broadbeach but is just a few minutes walk from Jupiters Casino. This really is a restaurant you need to visit when in Broadbeach.

“Tucked away but worth the find”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Group of 6 looking for a nice place to have some good food. Well we found it. Even made the effort to fit us in at last minute. Service was great and food was beautiful. Well balanced flavored and not over the top.
Definitely somewhere to put on your list if you're on the Gold Coast and want somewhere great to eat away from the hustle and bustle.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We dined at Verve on Saturday night on the basis of the other Trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Loved the food, the service and the atmosphere. Entrees and mains were the highlights for us, my partner adored the confit of duck and my sirloin was cooked to perfection. The desert was perfectly fine but not remarkable, perhaps we could have done without...(!) We have found the dining to be more miss than hit on the GC so we were delighted with having found Verve and will definitely be returning and recommending our friends to do so also. Well done to the Verve team, keep it up.
