Delicious food and alright ambience but will not be returning due to the inadequate service by our waiter, Miguel. Very snobbish attitude and it ruined the mood for everyone.

The restaurant is in a lovely area of Brisbane down on the river front. We were greeted by friendly staff and had a table for the two of us within minutes. Service was excellent. The waiter brought a tray full of the different types of steak and gave an explanation of all of the cuts. The meals were well presented... More

First time in Brisbane and looking for a nice place with good steak. I arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation and the only table they had available was near the door. Not a good view but I was there for the steak and was not disappointed. I ordered a eye fillet medium rare and French fries. The steak... More

Turned up without a booking for a casual lunch - restaurant about 1/3 full. Got a table with a view of the Brisbane River & the world walking past the window. Servers were great - attentive, orders taken as requested, drinks tended to & offered deserts & coffees etc. Food is great - steak & duck meals ordered & both... More

I went to dinner with a business associate to Cha Cha Char on a Monday evening. They are obviously doing something right as the restaurant filled up over the couple of ours we were there. Our introduction was convivial at reception & we were taken straight to our table (a reasonable size for two). The meat menu is concise &... 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!
