I am about to go to Cavs for the Upteenth time and I must say even though Cavs is in Labrador and would seem to be too far for some. This Steak House is still one of the best on the Coast. Families who are Holidaying near Cavs should take themselves to this Restaurant for a great night. Kids are... More

The venue was well patronised, but the service was still good. A lot of families there, the steaks were still excellent. It will be a sorry day when they finally close the doors in April. WE hope to get back before then

Dined at Cavs last night. Can't fault it. Great service. Staff so welcoming and well trained Oysters natural for entrees. Very fresh and nicely presented. Steak was to die for Cooked perfectly. Wine selection is good and reasonably priced. Can recommend the Kapuka Pino Noir Nice little Marlborough NZ drop. Had a great night thanks to everyone at Cavs.

Brown meat in butchers window when we walked in. Not fresh food, rubbery tasteless meat and awful food in general. Staff did not care and hard to get service. Playground little and run down needs a good clean.

We find your review unfair and unjust. On arrival we do have our meat on display and the customer has the opportunity to come and select their very own piece of steak and have it cooked exactly how they like. For clarification for yourself and our readers the colours of the meats differ due to the aging process so we... More

I celebrated a wonderful birthday there. The staff were lovely and the steaks, excellent. My family had a great time. I've since bought from the butcher and cooked the best steak I've ever done at home. Sad that the restaurant is going, it's a Gold Coast institution. I'll miss the cows.

Highly recommended. Try their sausages and onion rings as extras. Delicious. Staff are always welcoming. We also buy their meat from the butcher which is amazing.
