Cha Cha Char

Steak House

Eagle Street Pier, Shop 5, Eagle Street, Brisbane QLD 4000

Ph. (07) 3211 9944

While enjoying sweeping views of the Brisbane River, diners peruse a menu unlike any other: each meat's breed, paddock address, age (12 months to 30 months and older), size (200g to 600g), accompaniments and diet (grass fed/grain fed) is provided.

The menu also features shots of rare, medium rare, medium and well done steaks to help diners choose their preferred style.

The consistant quality of the meat offered is substantially due to the fact that the restauranteur John Kilroy is a nationally recognised beef judge. He is constantly showcasing beef to the hospitality industry where discussions range from the breed of cattle, feed type and age of the carcass. There are many variables to take into account to put a good steak on the plate.

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. For non-meat lovers, there is an extensive non - beef menu available at Char and Executive Chef Jamie Farrugia has recently introduced new menu options featuring a "lighter side of beef".

The stylish bar is also a wonderful spot for a stop-over before your meal or simply a place to have a few drinks during a busy day. The atmosphere in the bar and restaurant is particularly vibrant and is a regular haunt for busy corporates who have been known to stretch lunch well into dinner service.
