Very loud but it was a Saturday night, clearly a place groups of people go to for a special occasion - maybe not the best place for a romantic dinner for two. Both starters (steak tartare & scallops) were very good and the steaks (grass-fed rib eye on the bone) were excellent (rare) a little tough (blue). The accompanying vegetables... More

I have been luckily to have gone here twice in last month. Excellent for entertaining business clients and interstate friends. Steaks were excellent, wine menu extensive. Even provided partner reading glasses as he forgot his, so he could see the menu. Highly recommend.

We went for my husbands birthday which was mentioned in our booking, but nothing nice was done for him which was a shame. We had a great table by the window and had a wonderful waitress Jade, who looked after us beautifully. Hubby had Tartare for entrée which was awesome, followed by rump cap - which was ok, but not...

The steak meal we had was ok; but we thought the menu was generally overpriced. 4 of us visited, all had rump steak. My garlic and peppercorn sauce had no peppercorns in it and didnt taste much of garlic. One of our party felt their steak was "chewy". Wine was good, a Soul Sister rose; but have had much better...

Steak was excellent, well cooked but over priced. Service was average and atmosphere was poor. There were a lot of drunk very loud and crass people in the restaurant and the air conditioning wasn't working which was almost unbearable in the current heat.

I can't believe people only find this place average at all. 6 of us are there this week and lol of us enjoyed the whole experience. Service was good and the steaks always have a wonderful deep taste to them here. One of friends had the prawn starter it looked beautiful and she said they were awesome. She also ate... More

I asked for a table for two at 7pm but was told only 6pm available. By the time we left at about 7.15 the place was half empty. Not much atmosphere. The 'tasmanian' oysters were huge and chewy.. unlike the real deal oysters we had over there a few weeks back. The service was ok. The steaks were good. A... More

Had a Christmas Party here and the services was great. Being a large group we were really looked after. Food all came out at same table time and the drinks were readily available for everyone.

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!
