Brisbane restaurateur John Kilroy is widely acknowledged as being one of the major contributors to the exciting reformation which has swept through the Australian red meat industry over the past six to eight years.
Although he has spent the past 20 years immersed in Brisbane’s “big city” fine dining and restaurant scene, John has lost none of the friendly, easy- going mannerisms instilled during a bush upbringing, having been raised on a grazing property near St George in Western Queensland.
Following several years knocking around Australia as a young surveyor, he decided to settle in Brisbane, choosing the hospitality industry as his future career path.
He established Brisbane’s much-loved Giardinetto Restaurant in Fortitude Valley precinct in the 1980s. Acknowledgment soon followed when the venue was chosen as finalist in the 1984 Bulletin Quelltaler Restaurant of the Year awards.
Following the success of Giardinetto, John spent several years leasing and revitalising some of Brisbane’s famous landmark hotels including the Broadway, the Terminus and the Barracks, before making his first major acquisition in 1992 with the purchase of Wanganui Gardens reception centre.
It was during 1996 that John started ‘sizing up’ opportunities for an inner city eatery, which eventually led to the establishment of Cha Cha Char. At the time of its opening in 1997, the concept of a top – end steak dining venue was considered a somewhat “risky” move within the food service industry.
Absolute riverfront, this is arguably the best located restaurant in Brisbane enjoying striking views of the river and the Story Bridge. The décor is fresh and bright with the lines between indoors and out delightfully blurred.
We offer a superior wine list of boutique, eclectic and lesser known vineyards as well as firm favourites from the new and old world.
Service in the restaurant, the 35-seat Private Dining Room and in our newly expanded bar is always gracious, friendly and relaxed.
