Location and contact

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!

Lovely restaurant with fine wines, lovely staff and absolutely amazing food. Refreshing to see they have grass fed meats on the menu. Nice setting and plenty of space so you are not crammed together.

I had been looking forward to dining here, given its apparent reputation. However, this establishment is in desperate need of a makeover. I could have been mistaken for eating in an a la carte Sizzler, but with a more expensive menu. There is no dress...More
