Guys, cmon...for a $72 steak, i dont expect to be charged another 5 bucks for the accompanying sauce. I thought the place lacked ambience and soul. Nice steak but not worth $72. I thought the staff also lacked some general friendliness and service including the male owner/manager. They didnt really explain the different cuts of meat though i noticed they... More

The service was not great, not sure how many times I asked for a drink and it never came. Also the room temperature was very hot. For some reason they did not want to turn the fans on. My steak was marbled which I did not like. Lots of fat, but maybe that is the type of cut..?

My husband and I often go to different steak houses so we know good steak when we see it. And as far as steak goes, Cha Cha Char has pushed Moo Moo Bar and Grill off the top spot. The beef tartare I ordered was by far the best I've ever had and I ordered a blue steak (eye fillet)... More

Certainly not the place of your looking to dine on a budget, but for a night of indulgence certainly lives up to its reputation. Wonderful view excellent service and the best steaks in Brisbane. Not only a great variety of steaks to choose from the perfection in their cooking and the wonderful soft but flavoursome buttery caramelised texture they achieve.... More

The food is a little expensive but if you are going for a classy night out, it's what you expect. The wait staff where very attentive and kept offering drinks throughout the evening. Great food, worth a visit.

Great location on the river with view. Interior is nice but perhaps a little tight in terms of packing tables in. Service was good, although it felt like our waiter had a few too many talked to serve. Wine was generally attended to, took a little while to get one replacement bottle. Good entrees. Steak mains were cooked well and... More

Had dinner in the private room with a group of colleagues. Service was excellent - just the right amount of helpfulness. We are a set menu so didn't have the chance to peruse the full menu (or to comment on value for money).However, what I did have was delicious and everything was nicely plated. The kingfish ceviche was a great... More

Great for a nice lunch or dinner. Rich food and good service. Good quality and you pay for it but for a special evening it is recommended.

One of my favourite Brisbane restaurants. Had a great feed of steak and a few choice beers as well. Fantastic steaks! The service was good but not excellent.

Ask for a table in this half full place and already saw the unwelcome look on the waiter face. Waiter definitely has an attitude problem but no worries, I am here to eat. Ordered the best steak of the year 2015 according to the menu and it was quite tough . The squid was not crispy. The beef tongue was... 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!
