Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill is a stylish, contemporary restaurant specialising in high quality, cooked-to-perfection steaks.On our menu you'll find plenty of information - the breed, paddock address, age (12 months to 30 months and older), size (200g to 600g), accompaniments and diet (grass fed/grain fed) as well as snapshots of rare, medium rare, medium and well done steaks to help diners with their preferences.It's harder than you think to get a great steak onto a plate - there are so many variables. Restaurateur John Kilroy is a nationally recognised beef judge and is constantly showcasing products to the hospitality industry where discussions range from the breed of cattle, feed type and age of the carcass. His wide recognition throughout the beef industry means that we receive first class products on a consistent basis, year round. John sources the beef direct from producers and suppliers and ages it for five weeks, giving diners a chance to taste different breeds, brands and regions. That's why it's Brisbane's signature steak restaurant!

Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the steak was perfect. I arrived early and there is a nice bar area for a drink pre lunch. We were seated on time and drinks provided quickly. Menu options were vast but steaks stood out. The food arrived in good time and we both devoured our steaks. I'll be back.

We have had many a good meal at this restaurant over the past 15yrs but after our experience this week, we definitely won't be returning. We made a reservation the day before but on arrival they had no record of our booking & even though the restaurant was 3/4 empty were made to feel like we were imposing. The staff... More

My wife and I decided to treat ourselves to an early dinner and decided to give Cha Cha Char a try. When we asked for a table, we treated quite poorly; apparently our khaki's and Ralph Lauren Polo shirts weren't good enough. We were informed that we could be seated, but that we would have to be gone by 5,... More

I love a good steak...we go to a steak restaurant most weekends. This is the best steak (and accompaniments beautifully dressing the plates) I've eaten in many years. The steaks were beautifully cooked, even the 100g kids steak was cooked a perfect medium. We had sides of the roast potatoes with caramelised onion and avocado spinach + pancetta salad. The... More

Gorgeous steak in a fresh environment, but service was appalling and the steak arrived cold. When a complaint was lodged the manager took 45 minutes to come to the table...... trading on its reputation but not delivering.

We choose this restaurant because it specialised in steaks. The service was great with attention shown to your understanding of what meats were available and how they should be cooked. The Angus eye fillet and the Wagyu rump were delicious. The sauce we allowed the wait staff to pick, being the red wine jus and mustard sauce respectively. The only... More

Always a great experience. Steaks are very well cooked and the knowledge of the process to bring to the plate adds to the experience.

This is about my tenth visit to the Restruant and service was excellent and wine list very comprehensive. Menu has a reasonable selection of food and something for everyone, that said, the steaks are why you attend this long standing establishment. My steak was great and just why you keep coming back.
