“Best steak ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

A plus when a butcher of the same name has a steakhouse! Perfectly cooked steak- choose your own from display, amazing surf n turf (steak Caribbean), veg lasagne full of fresh veg, fresh, nicely cooked vegetables, kids play area. A home cooked meal away from home... Decor is average. Definite to visit again regardless.

“An oldie but a goodie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Cavs has been around for ages but is still a good place for a decent steak. I found the menu confusing so should have asked the waitress to help me. There are different choices regarding sizes, sauces and packages so if unsure best to ask. Steak is not my favourite food but my husband loves the place.

Thank-you for taking the time to review our restaurant we are glad you enjoyed the steak.

Yes we would have been more then happy to assist you with the sizes and sauces and this is why we have an order up at the window style so you can have a look at the different steaks and sizes and even pick out your own!

We hope to see you and your husband back for lunch or dinner soon.

Thank-you

“Food was delicious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Our food was great. The restaurant though was terrible. It was revoltingly hot. One person said the air con had carked it, the other said it was working. One said the roof had been opened to keep it cool. The roof wasn't open where we sat. The meals cost $411 and we weren't even offered a comp on the children's meal that included ice cream that we couldn't stay for because it was too hot.

Thank-you for taking the time to review Cav's Steakhouse we appreciate it.

We are so glad you enjoyed your meals and you found them to be delicious.

We do hope you accept our sincere apologies for the heat of the restaurant and the mixed messages.

As the Manager on duty explained as you were leaving, our air conditioning was working at full capacity but because of the severe humidity that we had on that particular day/night we were trying our hardest to cool down our restaurant.

Please email to us on Omer@cavssteakhouse.com with a date that you would like to return for lunch or dinner so that we can show you the true Cav's hospitality.

Thank-you again for your review.

“Delicious Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

This Restaurant is a must for Gold Coast Tourists who love steak. The Restaurant is beside Cav's Butcher. Quality defines both the Butcher Shop and Restaurant. Cav's presents in a pleasant atmosphere whether for groups, couples or pop in for a great meal on the run.
I have dined here both lunch and dinner and always found the service friendly and efficient. The guest chooses which steak they wish from a display cabinet and it is cooked to perfection. There are also oysters and other choices for entrée. However, I feel if I go to a Steak Restaurant I want to eat steak cooked to perfection. I have not been disappointed.

“Steak cooked to perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

As locals we visit Cav's Steakhouse often - and can say we've never been disappointed. The steak is always cooked to perfection. I hate ordering a steak cooked medium and then when it arrives it's more like well done. This is definitely not the case at Cav's - the chef does a great job. They are also happy to accommodate any special requests without any complaints - sauce on the side, vegetables instead of salad etc.
I can highly recommend the eye fillet - it just melts in your mouth. I also like that you can walk up to the window and choose exactly which piece of steak you would like for your meal.
Cav's also have a butchery next door where you can purchase the same meat that's used in the restaurant - and the steak's we buy from here are always top quality and great on the BBQ at home too.
