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!

“Steak still great-overall not as good as it used to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

The food was good. We all had a steak, which was perfectly cooked. so no complaints there.

overall however the experience wasn't as good as it used to be.

after being told our table was 5 mins away we were left waiting at the bar for well over 20 mins without anyone popping over to give us an update. Our waitress was ok but I felt the staff were all a bit rushed. if you are looking for a good steak then this is a great place to go but it seems to lack the wow factor that it used to have.

“Best meat restaurant in Brisbane”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

This mainly steak restaurant is great. Don't go if you want a small meal or something other than meat for a main. The only problem is the price tag. The owners obviously know that they are onto a good thing (it always seems busy to overflowing) and charge accordingly. The wine list is not overly comprehensive - but satisfactory. Again the prices are fairly extortionate. The chef knows exactly how to cook a steak to the customer's satisfaction.

“Good food, good service, extortionate price tag”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a steak restaurant. Don't go unless you are keen to feast on a massive piece of steak. And pay for it. Steaks are upwards of $50, with most being around $70. For that you literally just get meat. Sides are additional. That being said, it was the best steak I've ever had. I guess it just depends how much you value your meat as to weather you will enjoy this restaurant.
Service was good.

“Great Night Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Started the evening with a few drinks in the bar whilst waiting for a table, staff were fantastic & very attentive! Menu selection was good, quite expensive, but in saying that the quality of food was amazing so well worth the price! Beautiful location on the Brisbane river!

“Best steak restaurant in Qld.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Love this place. Have been many times and its hard to fault anything. It's always packed by locals. The whole menu is amazing. The staff are brilliant. The Bloody Mary oyster shooters are exquisite. The wagyu rump cap streak is like nothing else I have ever had. Try the cape barren GSM to compliment the steak perfectly. The wine selection is perfect. It's my fav restaurant, and will keep coming back.
