Exciting changes are coming to the Eagle Street Pier this December as the iconic riverfront dining destination welcomes the return of two of Brisbane’s most favoured restaurants: COPPA and Cha Cha Char Steak and Lobster. 

COPPA, which temporarily closed in March, will move into the Il Centro site at the Eagle Street Pier and provide casual indoor and alfresco dining. Diners who missed the rich Italian cuisine the restaurant is known for may now start counting the days till COPPA’s re-opening.



“Myself and The Happy Fat Group could not be more excited to relocate COPPA to such an iconic dining destination and offer the COPPA experience with river views at Eagle Street Pier,” COPPA’s Tom Sanceau, Australia’s premier restaurateur, said.

Cha Cha Char Steak and Lobster, on the other hand, will say goodbye to John Kilroy after his two decades of service in the hospitality industry. He will leave Cha Cha Char Steak and Lobster in good hands with Michael Tassis and Ciao Rossetto. 

The new owners of Cha Cha Char will introduce a new concept by mid-December with the freshest lobsters from the waters of Tasmania and Western Australia. Guests may also unwind at the new Whisky and Wine Bar, which has over 150 wine selections.

“We’re looking forward to what is to come with Cha Cha Char Steak and Lobster and particularly excited for what this new concept will bring, and we’re sure Brisbane will love it,” Mr Tassis said.

Christmas summers at The Pier will also feature live music and family entertainment as guests enjoy these two new dining venues.
