We were hesitant about having dinner here given past experiences of 'fine dining' at other river side restaurants. In our experience the food and service have not matched the price of food at other restaurants. This restaurant was different. Greeted immediately at the door by a friendly member of staff who relocated us to a nicer table without being asked... More

Went with a large group to this restaurant and we were all very pleased with our meals. We all had various cuts of steak and were helped by a delightful French waitress. She knew about the wine menu also and could guide us with the type of wine we liked. I had a grass fed eye fillet and it was... More

We often walk past Cha Cha Char on our way to other restaurants in Brisbane based on previous bad experiences. Cha Cha had become ahead of itself relying on reputation and forgetting about the diners and was for us arrogant in it's approach. We decided to give them a go to see whether things had improved. WOW from the moment... More

On business trip to Brisbane, and ate here with colleagues. The steaks are very good, and the wine list was varied. Well worth checking out if you enjoy a good steak.

My husband and I ordered the meat platter. After waiting quite a while which was not a problem the meat platter arrived which we found to be look warm. On mentioning this straight away it was replaced with much less than was on the original platter and less than tasty. Management did recompense slightly but the sense of disappointment and... More

Although I don't eat meat we felt there was sufficient fish options to accommodate me. Unfortunately having presented my husband with a wide choice of steaks a simple request to substitute a meat pasta accompaniment to a fish of the day dish was unachievable. We were about to order entres, an expensive steak, wine etc but instead paid for our... More

Have not eaten at this restaurant for a couple of years, but it's still good. Service was attentive and friendly. The food was good. Two slight reservations that prevent me making this a 5 star evaluation: the steaks were ordered as medium, medium rare and rare and they were all cooked about the same, the rare wasn't rare enough and...

Stylish restaurant, amazing food and great service. And " Striploin Mayura Station Signature Wagyu Beef " was excellent ! Very high fat marbling 12+ Grain fed 600+ days, so rich, so tasty, so tender just like a real Japanese Wagyu beef in Japan ... Wow factor ! Very small size 150g and $110 !

Traditionally a steak restaurant I have found the alternatives excellent. My spatchcock with oyster Szechwan sauce was absolutely delicious. Service was great & the guys really enjoyed the steaks.

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!
