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!

The restaurant had a nice bar. I was dining by myself so the staff occasionally came to chat to me. This was nice. I had the eye fillet steak which was excellent. It is not a cheap restaurant but good food and good service.

After having a few drinks on the waterfront, we wanted a nice restaurant to have a quick bite and this place ticked the box. Given that it was early, we were able to walk in and eat immediately. The service was quick, efficient and professional and the food was amazing. We won't hesitate to return to this restaurant again in... More

Well this experience was a complete let down. Having read good reviews we were excited to go for a special occasion. I took my son and his girlfriend there for a goodbye meal after staying in Brisbane for seventeen days on holiday. First visit was to the ladies, no toilet paper. The waiter was very pleasant and very well informed... More

If you like char grilled meats then Cha Cha Cha's is the place to go. Just remember to carry the cash as like all the restaurants’ on the Pier you will pay a premium.

My brothers and I went to Cha Cha Char as a bit of a treat and it absolutely was a treat. In the staff were just fantastic and attentive and food was unreal (highly recommend trying the steak, the duck and calamari). Will definitely go back there and recommend for a special Occassion and/or client corporate dinner.

A well situated restaurant on the bank of the Brisbane river. The steaks are very good as are other items on the menu. The establishment has a lively atmosphere and as such, is not the place for a quiet meeting. The bar is well stocked and for an establishment such as this reasonably priced. The staff also rate an honourable... More

I would have steak as my last meal if I had the choice, and to that effect I have literally had steaks from all around the world, in all parts of the world. While my all-time greatest red-meat memories are yet to be beat, Cha Cha Char has definitely put itself up in my list of favorites. To be sure... More

An excellent start to the meal spoilt by a 50 minute wait for our $40 steaks which were served almost cold. The main meal accompaniments were baked rock hard & likewise were served near cold. We also ordered a side of mash that arrived as our mains were nearly complete - it was also luke warm at best. Frequent bumping... More

Randomly picked the CCC one evening and was blown away. Excellent Wagyu steaks cooked to perfection. Our waitress Tyler was a star; attentive, polite enough to praise our wine selection (although I expect we could have done better!) and absolutely nailed the dessert by recommending the poached pear, bread and butter pudding with caramel ice-cream and maple syrup. Stunning. I... More

Very expensive, but if you like your meat, this is fantastic place for you. The service was excellent. The waiter explained each steak in precise detail and had samples on a wood board. He explained how they are cooked, what is the best accompaniment , how best to take them cooked, where they came from and on and on. The... More
