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!

If you're after a great dinner with an equally great wine list, this is it. Great flavours, whether you try the fish dishes or steaks. Also, fantastic service. Definitely a place I'll be visiting again.

This restaurant was recommended to us by some friends and we were lucky enough to get a last minute reservation. The restaurant has a lovely feel, the staff were fabulous - we were looked after so well. The food was sensational. We both had oysters ( I am fussy), but they were sensational. We then both had a steak which... More

I was at Cha Cha Char with family including two young boys. It was a great experience for all of us. Fresh, innovative and great service. If pushed ....and had to find a criticism... it would be the cost of wine which appears to have some on the list that have a rather scandalous mark-up.

The menu is impressive and the side salads are unique and lovely, the steaks are good and worthy of 3.5-4 stars but the service was very basic and what we expected, given the prices. Actually one steak was under done. We asked for a window table - we didn't mean a window table next to frosted glass by the alley.... More

Considering the prices we expected really good things but it wasn't spectacular. Staff tried hard but it just wasn't as smooth as most fine dining restaurants. Steaks were good but not brilliant. I really cannot fault the restaurant but I don't think we will be back in a hurry.

my fourth time at this place. If my mate did not pay for all of us , i would never go back. Firstly ,the prices of having a beer have you dipping into your superannuation. Meals............so dreadfully overpriced and soso quality. Having to pay for a sauce on a steak is UNIQUE. Noone else does.
