We went here with high expectations after hearing some great reviews. Love the location, the food was nice but nothing amazing. Definitely not my top pick for steak in Brisbane. Overpriced in my opinion!

You can either have a lovely light lunch or go the full hog here. Steaks and sea food all were excellent.

If you're after a reasonably well cooked over priced steak with mediocre accompanying sauces, then this is the place for you. This is a consistent restaurant which I believe caters for business events, rowdy bucks nights and general Friday night bottom of the barrel dining. If you are familiar with the Black Stump restaurants of the '80s, this is a... More

Great place/ location , sat us straight down. Nice polite waitress, but the food was only Luke warm when it came. Good cuts of meat but not Fine Dining by a long way. I found it over priced for what you got.

We enjoyed a relaxed weekend lunch at Cha Cha Char and would recommend this restaurant. Our waiter was very attentive and clearly knew, and was passionate about, his stuff. I think he was dribbling in his mouth as he described the grade of marbling in the steak! The food was fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection - even our non-meat... More

It would be hard to fault the meals here... deserved winner of Australia's and Queensland's Steak Restaurant of the Year for many years in a row. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for and compared to the others in this class - it's good value. So, highly recommended for a steak dinner. But, there is room for... More

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!
