The best steak on the Gold Coast or maybe even South East Queensland. Average cost of $100 for two steaks and 2 beers. Select your steak and the experts will prepare it however you desire. All you get is steak, mashed potato and a drop of coleslaw, BUT the steak is Marvelous !

Consistent quality over many years, this is one of our favourite family restaurants. From a quick meal (because we know the menu back to front and can just walk in and order straight off) to more leisurely and populated celebratory events this place is fantastic. The food is to die for - the steaks top of the line, the chilli sauce piquant, the mushroom fulsome, the coleslaw standard is delicious, the deserts over the top - the service always friendly and willing to assist in every way - the decor frsh and clean but comfortingly familiar.
This will close for a new development on site and reopen as a grill and emporium in 15 months or so. Au revoir Cavs - part of my family.

We have been hearing the stories and history of Cav’s Steakhouse and finally decided to visit for a birthday dinner. Eye fillet was good quality and we liked it, but other steaks were not cooked as ordered and labeled. Coleslaw was tasteless. The waitress was nice, but the gentleman who explained how everything works at the restaurant was a bit rushed and abrupt although the occupancy was less than 20% that night. A little disappointing for such a historical place.

Quick, get in and eat at this Good Coast landmark restaurant before it gets pulled down forever. Apparently started by the “Cavs” of Xavilke Avenue fame, this slightly tacky restaurant is famous for its big flame-grilled is steaks.

My wife and I always go there for a quick meal because we know that the food will be delicious and great value. The service is really good too.

Famous for their fibreglass cows near the footpath, the tackiness continues inside with the Spanish Garden themed “outdoors” themed decor. It is a family joke that Cav’s is really cringeworthy in its appearance but we like love it for its great value food and great service. Adjacent to their butchery on Gold Coast Highway at Labrador, you can always depend on getting a great steak or rib eye. They have a selection of meals for the non-steak lovers too and a good range of wines and spirits.

Cav’s is due to be demolished in 2018 to make way for a block of flats.

Get in soon or miss out.

My score, an honest 6 out of 10.
