Description: 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!

I've visited previous, and everyone was extatic about the food and service. This time my partner and I brought her niece, a vegan. All staff, chef included, took on the challenge and presented the most amazing vegan meal I have seen. My steak as usual, perfect and from those that had the duck, moist and perfectly cooked. As always a... More

The best part of the evening was the waitress Rachel who was a real gem. In terms of the food the steak was average - a bit tough. Admittedly not enough to be inedible but for a restaurant at this level that is not enough to bring you back for second meal. Wine prices were reasonable and if you're lucky... More

This used to be one of Brisbane's Iconic Riverside Restaurants. Unfortunately, that is in the past. We used to enjoy coming here and enjoy the food and great service but this is now a thing of the past. It is unfortunate when a great restaurant becomes just another steakhouse. Service was lack luster and the food average. You need to... More

We went here as it was recommended. Had oysters bloody mary and Kilpatrick which was very nice. I had a 500g T bone and my partner a wagyu steak. The wagyu was beautiful, mine very good. The only thing was we had a very big gap in between courses. We were starving by the time the main came. The staff... More

Great restaurant and world class food, service and atmosphere. We enjoyed how they give you a little free tapa to start your meal and the bread was great as well. The beef is the best with many choices to make right at your table.

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend on Saturday for dinner. Had an extremely unpleasant experience and will not be returning back for more. We were charged for food that never arrived, the delay between the mains and entrée was over 45 minutes. The restaurant manager was extremely rude, derogatory and arrogant in his comments without attempting... More

The food is delicious, the place is really nice between modern, elegant and casual. But the service is impeccable and truly friendly, the best waitress I've found in Australia. I was there for a friend's birthday and she made a huge effort for us to feel welcomed and cared for. I strongly recommend this place as a must place to... More

I went with a group of around 16 people for a Christmas celebration. The staff handled the group well and the food was excellent. Service was very attentive and a good time was had by all.
